As you state that it is not illegal in India that should answer your question. So why do you want to do something that is illegal in India? Blocking a site from India does not mean that it is legal. Remember there are many software experts based in India who can unblock your site. If you really intend to do this then you must apply for a licence to be able to do that, otherwise you may find yourself in deep trouble and obviously the lawyers will benefit from your illegal or misleading site that is illegal in India. Please let me know if the information provided is useful or not.

Yay!!!!! 236 Views Legality of Online Rummy Games in India Supreme court - 1967 - State of Andhra Pradesh v. K. Satyanarayana- Rummy is a game of skill The Supreme Court of India ruled that Rummy requires certain amount of skill because the fall of the card has to be memorized. Decision has been relied on in various subsequent judgments. Supreme court - 1996 - State of Tamil Nadu v. Dr. KR Lakshmanan - Rummy is a mere skill Competitions where success depends on substantial degree of skill are not "gambling". Despite there being an element of chance, if a game is preponderantly a game of skill it may be called a game of "mere skill”. Karnataka HC – 1982 - State of Karnataka v. Anantaswamy Iyer - Rummy for stakes to be legal ” The game of Rummy with cards is not game of chance but a game of skill. The collection of commission from the members of the club playing Rummy does not make it a gambling house. Thus, it does not amount to any offence.” Andhra HC - 2002 - State of Andhra Pradesh v. D Krishna Kumar - Rummy not violating laws “Playing rummy even for stakes or money does not violate provisions of the Andhra Pradesh Gaming Act, 1974. The statutes specifically are worded to save games of skill from any criminal liability.” TamilNadu HC – 2011 - Justice Rajeswaran – Rummy not Gambling “ Rummy, on the other hand, requires certain amount of skill because the fall of the card has to be memorized and the building up of Rummy requires considerable skill in holding and discarding cards.” Further, the Public Gambling Act, which is the central law on gambling and most subsequent state laws on the subject substantially state that "nothing in this Act shall apply to games of mere skill wherever played". The Rummy games are protected by the Constitution of India under Article 19[1] (g).
