The Punjab Lottery has been running since 1968 and is administered by a wing of the Finance Department of the Punjab Government with the aim of providing a clean and transparent lottery. The Punjab holds regular Bumper lottery draws and used to offer weekly and monthly draws with a declared turnover surpassing 55 crore. Each ‘scheme’, or draw is defined by the Finance Department to include the number of tickets that will be issued, the name of the lottery and the date on which the draw will take place – usually the date changes, but the number of tickets remains the same.
On the date of the draw, retailers return details of the tickets that haven’t been sold to the director, so these are not included in the draw. The Punjabi State Lottery Director is also at liberty to increase or decrease the number of tickets in each draw after the scheme has been announced. Draws take place in the Zila Parishad Building, located in Ludigarh, Punjab.
All winners of Punjab State lotteries are required to submit a claim form along with additional documents proving ownership and identity.
