Balancing Innovation & Responsibility: Insights from Passion Gaming’s CEO on Vibrant Bharat Conference

As India’s gaming industry reaches a critical juncture, the imperative for ethical practices and responsible growth has never been stronger. Our sector stands at the forefront of technological innovation, with an ever-expanding player base that demands both exceptional gaming experience and safety. It’s in this context of transformation and responsibility that I had the privilege of participating as a panelist at the “Ethical Gaming and Responsible Play for a Vibrant Bharat” conference, hosted by the E-Gaming Federation in partnership with Grant Thornton Bharat LLP on July 9th, 2024.

This pivotal event brought together over 40 key industry stakeholders to address crucial topics that will define our industry’s trajectory.

The conference marked the launch of a significant whitepaper, “Guardians of safe play: Ethical gaming for Vibrant Bharat,” underscoring our collective commitment to responsible gaming practices.

Key highlights included:

  • Engaging panel discussions on protecting consumer rights, enhancing national interests, and implementing ethical gaming practices.
  • An insightful roundtable on establishing robust standards for fairness in gaming.
  • The unveiling of the whitepaper by distinguished guests, including Prof. (Dr) G.S. Bajpai, Vice Chancellor of National Law University, Delhi and Shri Priyank Kanoongo, Chairperson, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights.

As CEO of Passion Gaming, I found it truly inspiring to witness our industry uniting to address these critical issues. The conference reinforced my belief that we’re at a pivotal moment where balancing innovation with responsible practices is not just beneficial, but essential for our sustainable growth.

I remain committed to leading by example and actively contributing to these vital discussions that are shaping the future of gaming in India. By prioritizing consumer protection, ensuring fair play, and considering our broader societal impact, we can build a thriving, responsible, and innovative gaming ecosystem that serves as a model for the world.

Together, let’s champion ethical gaming and responsible play for a truly vibrant Bharat.
