In India, dabba trading is prohibited, and those who engage in it face criminal charges and punishments. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) fined Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers Ltd Rs 6 lakh for unauthorised trading operations. 

Dabba trading is considered gambling in India and is therefore prohibited. Dabba trading is outlawed under the SEBI Prohibition of Fraudulent and Unfair Trade Practices in Securities Market Regulations, 2003. 

Dabba trading is typically done without the customer's knowledge or agreement and may be considered fraud if the crime is found. As a result, it is not recommended to engage in dabba trading because it is unlawful and carries significant consequences.
