Kerala govt justifies Lottery ordinance
Kochi: The Kerala government on Friday
justified the new lottery ordinance in the state high court
and said it was not contrary to central act and rules.
Arguing for the state, Supreme court senior advocate
Nitesh Gupta, produced the copy of the gazette notification
containing recent amendment brought to the lottery ordinance
The ordinance stipulates that central act and rules should
be complied by the government, the counsel stated.
The state also informed the court that no limit had been
prescribed by the Constitution to the states for prescribing
tax on lotteries.
The government was well within its authority to impose tax.
Imposing more tax is to avoid competition, he stated.
Justice C K Abdul Rahim adjourned the case to Nov 19.
