This growing industry is now poised at a point where it is apt for the stakeholders to collectively self-regulate by benefiting from each other’s experience. The Rummy Federation, an initiative by the online Rummy industry, proactively adopts state-of-the-art practices from countries where the gaming industry is regulated and lays down stringent self-governance guidelines for online rummy operators. This initiative will ensure that the online rummy industry offers healthy and sustainable entertainment to rummy players across the country.”
