The Google Play Pilot Program for DFS and Rummy apps in India ended on September 28, 2023. New apps are no longer being accepted in the pilot program. We are providing a grace period to existing pilot apps to remain on Google Play until June 30, 2024. Effective July 1, 2024, we will be introducing an updated policy to enable developers to distribute DFS, Rummy, and other Real-Money Games on Google Play.

We are closely tracking all ecosystem developments, including the planned implementation of the Self-Regulatory Bodies (SRB) framework for verification of permissible online RMG in India, and are committed to supporting developers in the Indian RMG industry.
