A single judge bench comprising of Justice Rajesh Shukla then announced that the order will be delivered in November, the results of which is likely to have a significant impact on the future of online and offline poker in India.

Petitioner clubs have already indicated that any adverse ruling in the matter would almost certainly be immediately challenged before a division bench of the High Court.
