Sports is probably one of the greatest instruments of social cohesion in today’s conflict-stricken world. It has grown from being just an activity for leisure to an activity that is treated as an industry and like all industries, there are innumerable issues that crop up day in and day out. Sports Law in India: Policy, Regulation and Commercialisation presents the legal challenges that sports faces in India today and further debates on the numerous legal issues, policies and regulations that have arisen and are most likely to arise in the near future. It discusses current issues such as spot fixing, public access to sporting events, doping controversies, concerns about religion in sports, and broadcasting law and taxation of earnings from sports. The book also compares the recent legal developments in India with the international sports law to provide a better understanding.

Index

“Sports in India hasn't evolved, like say, industry has. It has, well, just happened. And so it is necessary to look at the issues that are critical to its governance and even regulation. This book helps do that and so is beneficial not just to sports lawyers, but also to journalists, sportspersons and sports enthusiasts.”
