Yes, it is 100% legal in all territories of India except Assam, Odisha and Telangana.
Taking it in more detail, the poker games are considered as “the games of skill” according to the decision of the Supreme Court. It means that there is no or very little role of luck in these games, and the winner is the most skilled and intelligent person.
So, by the decisions of official institutions, such as Supreme Courts, games of skill cannot be prohibited in the country according to the Constitution. What is more, they do not fall under the definition of the word “gambling.”
The confusion about whether online poker is legal in India or not is explained by complicated wording in official documents. But legal specialists of all rooms as well as all interested sides analyzed deeply all gaming policies in India and came to the conclusion that online poker is not prohibited in the country.
Right now all rooms are absolutely sure that with few exceptions (three mentioned states above) online poker is legal. They are assured not only by their analysis, but also by official documents such as The West Bengal Gambling and Prize Competition Act 1957 or Public Gambling Act and by the claims of the official representatives.
