Where Nirvighna Digital conducts any customer identity checks, this neither implies that Nirvighna Digital is statutorily required to conduct such checks nor liable for any inaccuracy in customer verification that cannot be directly attributable to Nirvighna Digital’s gross negligence. You are responsible for completing your ‘know your customer’ checks with the banks, financial institutions, card associations, and other payment system providers as defined under the Payment and Settlement Systems Act, 2007 (Payments System Providers), with whom Nirvighna Digital has entered into an arrangement to facilitate payment transactions (i.e. to send or receive funds via the Platform) using the services of Payments System Providers. Nirvighna Digital conducts such checks as a measure to reduce financial crime in its multiple forms, such as online fraud, money laundering, or the financing of terrorism.

You acknowledge that your participation in any game(s) available on the Platform is purely voluntary and at your sole discretion and risk.

D. Skill Based games played on Nirvighna Digital’s application do not qualify as Gambling and Lottery

Users must note that the games hosted on the Nirvighna Digital Platform are games of skill. In compliance with Indian law, we do not support, endorse, or offer to Users, games of chance for money. While games of skill do not have a comprehensive definition, they are considered to be those games where the impact of a players effort and skill on the outcome of a game is higher than the impact of luck and chance.

E. Platform not offered in Assam, Meghalaya, Odisha, Telangana, Nagaland, Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim and outside India

Nirvighna Digital may, in accordance with the laws prevailing in certain Indian states, bar individuals residing in those states from participating in the game(s). Currently, individuals residing in the Indian states of Assam, Meghalaya, Odisha, Telangana, Nagaland, Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim and outside India are not allowed to participate in the paid version of the game(s) as the laws of these states bar persons from participating in games of skill where Users are required to pay to enter. Access to the Nirvighna Digital Platform will therefore be restricted from being accessed from such states.

You agree and acknowledge that we may monitor or use certain technologies and monitoring of activities including logging of your IP address to ascertain and verify your geographical location. As a final check, we may also seek additional personal details as proof of address during KYC approval.

Nirvighna Digital does not allow the Users residing in the aforesaid Indian states or outside the territory of India to play with real money or deposit amounts to play games on the Platform. Users agree and acknowledge that if a person residing in such Indian states, or from outside the territorial limits of the Republic of India becomes a User by giving false information, the liability shall be solely on the User and Nirvighna Digital reserves the right to delete/remove such Account.

You agree and accept that Nirvighna Digital shall not be liable or responsible for the breach of applicable state laws by any User. There may be applicable penalties imposed on such Users by the respective State Governments or the Central Government of India as the case may be.

Users from all Indian states are responsible for and must always ensure that they are complying with the applicable state laws and we will attempt to post any changes that we seem appropriate to better educate the Users. You agree and acknowledge that our decision in this regard will be final and binding, and no consideration, whatsoever, will be extended to the User.

F. Security

Access to your Account and to add, delete or modify any content on your Account is OTP protected. You must ensure that the OTP is not accessible to any person apart from you. We are not liable for any loss, damages or expenses of any kind incurred or suffered by you arising from or in connection with any failure, delay or interruption in transmitting OTPs due to any failure of the mobile service network or any other circumstance beyond our reasonable control.

You agree that you will not disclose your password/OTP to anyone or allow any other person to access or use your Account. We are not responsible if your Account is accessed or opened by other persons using your password/OTP. You shall be held solely responsible and liable for all of your activities on the Platform made from your Account.

You understand that it is your obligation to protect the information you have provided on the Platform including, but not limited, to usernames, email addresses, contact details, bank account information etc. You explicitly understand and agree that we will not incur any liability for information provided by you to anyone which may result in your Account on the Platform being exposed or misused by any other person or any other harm or loss being suffered by you.

Provided that Nirvighna Digital or its employees have not been dishonest or negligent, we shall not be liable to a User for any unauthorized transaction which has been executed through the Platform as a result of:

  1. fraud committed by the use of a User’s access credentials before the User has notified Nirvighna Digital in writing of the loss or theft or such access credentials and the Nirvighna Digital has been able to take actions to disable the access credentials;
  2. fraud committed by third parties against Users which may not be preventable by, or occur despite the security systems of the Platform;
  3. a voluntary action or transaction initiated suo motu by any User at the behest of another user, which is not initiated by Nirvighna Digital for the transfer of funds, credit or stored value to another User.
  4. the security, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of the content or function of any third party’s products or services on our Platform.
  5. responsibility for the underlying transactions involving funds between you and the sender/ recipient of a payment, or the actions or identity of any transfer recipient or sender.

You should routinely check the Account Balance section of your Account to ensure that there has been no unauthorised use of your Account. If you suspect any unauthorised activity you must contact our Grievance Officer.

You should only transact with a third party product or service that you know. While the Platform may provide a link between the sender and the recipient of cash or credit balance(s), all payment transactions or any communications/offers are carried out through the Platform are solely between the sender and recipient of the payment and Nirvighna Digital is not a party to and will not be responsible for any disputes, chargebacks or reversals arising pursuant to payment transactions solicited or initiated by and between Users.

Please note that we can terminate or suspend your Account and all associated accounts, institute fraud prevention measures such as access restrictions, transaction velocity restrictions etc. without prior notice to prevent unauthorised use of our Accounts. You must co-operate with us in any investigation and use any fraud prevention measures we prescribe and you agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for any block, suspension, cancellations, or termination of your Account owing to such measures.

Please also contact us immediately if the device through which you access the Platform has been lost, stolen or compromised in any way or someone has used or may use your device or credentials without your authorisation or if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your Account.

Nirvighna Digital at its own discretion can also contribute to such Prize Money Pool from its own resources. Unless specifically identified in these terms, it is clarified that Nirvighna Digital has no right or interest in this Prize Money Pool, and only acts as an intermediary engaged in collecting and distributing the Prize Money Pool in accordance with the game rules and these Terms.

In respect of any transactions entered into on the Nirvighna Digital Platform, including making a payment to participate in the games, the Users agree to be bound by the following payment terms: Subject to these Terms, all amounts collected from the User are held in separate non-interest earning bank account with an Agent. The said accounts are operated by the Agent (or a third party appointed by Nirvighna Digital) in accordance with these Terms. From these bank accounts, the payouts can be made to

  1. Users (towards their withdrawals of Winnings or Play Money);
  2. Nirvighna Digital (towards its Platform Fees); and
  3. to the Government (towards TDS, if any, on amounts won). The Agent shall receive and hold the amounts of the Users in trust as a trustee of and for the benefit and use of the Users

Nirvighna Digital reserves the right to charge a Platform Fee, which would be specified and notified by it, prior to a User’s joining of a game. The Platform Fee (inclusive of applicable tax thereon) will be debited from the User account balance and Nirvighna Digital shall issue an invoice for such debit on request to the User. The Platform Fee may be dynamic on a game to game basis and dependent on factors such as, number of Users, eligibility criteria, ranking and server load etc., subject to the Platform Fee being determined before the commencement of a game.

The User may participate in a game wherein the User has to contribute a pre-specified contribution towards the Prize Money Pool of such game, which will be passed on to the Winner(s) of the game after the completion of the game as per the terms and conditions of such game. The amount to be paid-in by the User towards the Prize Money Pool would also be debited from the User Account balance maintained with the Agent.

Any User availing of Nirvighna Digital Services are provided with the following categories of accounts for the processing and reconciliation of payments:

  1. Play Money, which comprises of money contributed by the User through a payment gateway towards Prize Money Pool, after disbursement of the Platform Fee to Nirvighna Digital (Play Money”);

Each time a User participates in any game on the Nirvighna Digital Platform, the Contribution shall be debited from the Users Account. The Contribution for each User shall be first debited from the Play Money and thereafter, any remaining amount of such Contribution shall be debited from the Winnings, if any.

In case any amount is remaining to be paid by the User as part of the Contribution in relation to such Users participation in any game(s), the User will be taken to the designated payment gateway to give effect to such payment which shall also be credited to the account maintained by the Agent. In case any amount added by the User through such payment gateway exceeds the remaining amount of the Contribution, the amount in excess shall be transferred to the Play Money and will be available for use in participation in the game(s) or for withdrawal in accordance with these Terms.

Debits from the Play Money for the purpose of enabling a User’s participation in a game shall be made in order of the date of credit of amounts in the Play Money, and accordingly, amounts credited into Play Money earlier in time shall be debited first.

In order to request a withdrawal of any amount standing in the Play Money, the User must first complete Nirvighna Digital’s identity verification, and bank account verification, which will also require submission of User’s PAN card and bank account details and by providing a reason for withdrawal over email support@theludogame.in. Nirvighna Digital shall effect an online transfer to the User’s bank account on record with Nirvighna Digital by instructing the Agent on behalf of the User (to which the User expressly consents), within a commercially reasonable period of time. Such transfer will reflect as a debit to the User’s Play Money. The withdrawal requests by Users on the Platform, when requested by Users, shall only be limited to Play Money i.e. the money added by the Users on the Platform and not any Bonus Money or Cashbacks provided by Nirvighna Digital. Nirvighna Digital may, in certain exceptional circumstances and at its sole and absolute discretion, deduct applicable cancellation charges, Cashbacks received, Bonus Money, and taxes including GST, from the amount to be refunded to the User.

Further, withdrawal of any amount standing to the User’s credit in the Winnings may be made by way of a request to the Agent through Nirvighna Digital. In such case, Nirvighna Digital shall cause an online transfer to the User’s bank account on record with Nirvighna Digital by instructing the Agent on behalf of the User (to which the User expressly consents), within a commercially reasonable period of time. Such transfer will reflect as a debit to the User’s Winnings.

  1. A copy of the Members PAN card;
  2. Member’s bank account details and proof of the same.

Nirvighna Digital shall not instruct the Agent to provide for the withdrawal of a User’s prize(s)/accumulated Winnings/Play Money unless the above-mentioned documents have been received and verified within the time- period stipulated by Nirvighna Digital. Only to those winners who successfully complete the verification process and provide the required documents within the time limit specified by Nirvighna Digital shall the Agent provide for (at the instructions of Nirvighna Digital on behalf of the User, to which the User expressly consents) withdrawal/receipt of their accumulated Winnings/Play Money (or any part thereof).

In the event that no bank account has been registered by the User against such Users account with Nirvighna Digital, or the User has not verified his/her User account with Nirvighna Digital, to Nirvighna Digital’s satisfaction and in accordance with these Terms, Nirvighna Digital shall provide such User with a notification to the User within the app or via SMS by Nirvighna Digital and the User shall register a bank account with his/her User Account and/or to verify his/her User Account to proceed with withdrawal requests.

Nirvighna Digital shall scrutinise all documents submitted and may, at its sole and absolute discretion, disqualify any winner from withdrawing his accumulated Winnings (or any part thereof) on the following grounds:

  3. Any other ground as reasonably determined by Nirvighna Digital.

The User represents and warrants that the documents provided in the course of the verification process are true copies of the original documents to which they relate.

Users are required to provide proper and complete details at the time of registration. Nirvighna Digital shall not be responsible for communications errors, commissions or omissions including those of the Users due to which the results may not be communicated to the Winner.

Where any of the fixtures within a game are cancelled or abandoned without an official result, all game entries are considered void and the Contribution shall be duly refunded to User. There are no prize/winnings pay-outs and Platform Fee charges for these voided games.
