The Tamil government earlier created a four-person committee under the direction of former Madras High Court Justice K Chandru to investigate and provide a report on internet gaming-related issues. Online games should be banned, according to the Justice Chandru Commission, whose report was filed, as they do not require any expertise and merely encourage addiction.

The four-member panel had also advised the Tamil Nadu government to exert maximum pressure on the Union government in order to guarantee that a law prohibiting online gaming is passed at the federal level. The government has chosen to solicit opinions from all interested parties. The general public, parents, teachers, students, youth, psychologists, social activists, and providers of online gaming services have all been invited to comment on the draught legislation regarding online games.
