To encourage innovation and ethical industry growth, FIFS has amended and strengthened its charter. The new charter places a strong emphasis on the function of the Fantasy Sports Regulatory Authority (FSRA), an independent self-regulatory organization that aims to promote best practices in fantasy sports.
FSRA consists of three former judges – Justice (Retd.) Mukul Mudgal, Justice (Retd.) G.S. Sistani and Justice (Retd.) A.K. Sikri.
