The circular was issued after the Gujarat State Commission for Protection of Child Rights recommended it for the safety of children, said officials. The circular will take the necessary steps to ban the game in primary schools.

The circular says that it is necessary to stop children from getting addicted to the game and it was "adversely affecting their studies."

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has asked the authorities across the country to ban the game, said Jagruti Pandya, chairperson, Gujrat child rights body.

"The NCPCR had sent a letter to all the states and recommended a ban on the game. All the states are required to implement it. Looking at the negative effects of the game, we had recently sent a letter to the state government recommending a ban on the game" said Pandya.
