Jail term for online gambling in C’garh

Friday, 06 January 2023 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

The Chhattisgarh government has modified the Gambling Act to include online gambling as a crime. It invites imprisonment of one to three years and fine of Rs 50,000 to Rs 5 lakh.

The Assembly on Wednesday passed the      modified Chhattisgarh Gambling Prohibition Bill 2022 by voice vote. It seeks to curb online gambling.

In the Act, online gambling has been added and gambling equipment cover electronic record and device, mobile app and electronic transfer of funds, an official communication said on Thursday.

The older Act did not have provision of punishment for online gambling.

The new provisions are imprisonment of one to three years and fine of Rs. 50,000 to Rs 5 lakh. Subsequent offences can lead to imprisonment of two to seven years and a fine of Rs 1 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.

All the offenses under the Prohibition of Gambling Act were cognizable and bailable.

The new Act states that owning a gambling house, gambling and online                gambling will be a cognizable and non-bailable offence. A higher fine and imprisonment has also been imposed on those giving false names and addresses on being caught.

Advertisements related to online gambling have been banned. Violation can lead to three years imprisonment.********************************************************

CUTTACK: The Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha, which

conducts Matriculation (Class-X) Examinations for Odia medium

students, would hold this year’s examinations for all streams between March 10 and 17.

Under the new pattern, the BSE is now conducting a total of six assessments for Class-X students in a year which include four Formative Assessments (FAs) and two Summative Assessments (SAs).

While the students have already appeared at FA-I, FA-II and SA-I, they are now appearing at FA-III and will appear at FA-IV in February, informed BSE President Ramashis Hajra here on Thursday.

He added that the final examination for the Class-X students to be held from March 10 to 17 would be known as Summative Assessment II (SA-II). “Fixed percentage of marks drawn from all the six assessment tests would add up to arrive at the final result of a student.

Bringing massive relief for both students and their parents, the BSE also announced that the SA-II would be held at the same examination centres where the students wrote their SA-I papers held in November last year. The BSE has also decided to retain the pattern of questions for the SA-II as that of SA-I, Hajra, said adding that over six lakh students would appear in the Matriculation examinations this year in the Regular, Ex-Regular, Madhyama (Sanskrit) and Open School Certificate streams.
