Meghalaya Regulation of Gaming (Repeal) Bill’23 Announced in Assembly
The Meghalaya Regulation of Gaming Act, 2021, which was notified and published on March 26, 2021.
SHILLONG: The state saw the introduction of Meghalaya Regulation of Gaming (Repeal) Bill, 2023, in the Legislature on Tuesday.
The Meghalaya Regulation of Gaming Act, 2021, which was notified and published on March 26, 2021, in the official gazette, and was enacted by the legislature of the state of Meghalaya, according to Minister in Charge of Taxes Department Abu Taher Mondal's declaration of objects and reasons.
However, after careful consideration, the Meghalayan administration has moved to repeal this Act.
The Meghalaya Regulation of Gaming (Repeal) Ordinance, 2022, which repealed the Gaming Act, was promulgated by the governor of Meghalaya on December 31, 2022, and published in the gazette on January 3, 2023, when the house was not in session.
The Governor's Ordinance must be presented to the state's Legislative Assembly in the form of a bill as required by Article 213(2)(a) of the Indian Constitution now that the House is in session.
As a result, a bill titled "The Meghalaya Regulation of Gaming (Repeal) Bill, 2023" is proposed to replace the aforementioned ordinance. It should be noted that the Act's repeal was decided upon following strong resistance from a number of social groups, including church leaders and NGOs.
Conrad K. Sangma, the chief minister, stated on Tuesday that the state administration has already decided to implement the Journalist Pension Scheme.
"We shall shortly come up with this idea," Sangma said while reacting to a debate on the governor's address on the second day of the budget session here on Tuesday.
With reference to the advertisement policy, the chief minister stated that because previous payments used to be done departmentally, each department was required to submit separate invoices to various agencies.
