1) Need to get legal opinion on if a project would be subjected to Gambling laws/game of chance laws in India when the organizers do not collect any fees from the participants( the office is in Mumbai )
2) Who can issue the advice
Basically something like an online raffle, however there is no charge or cost to the participants
From the participants one lucky winner is picked through a transparent process and the prize is announced and given
The prize value can vary and not necessarily be limited to a reasonable value like normal raffles
From what i gather there are mentions of such online gaming is illegal in Maharashtra, does an online game of chance without collection of money qualify as a game of gamble ?
