Rifle Associations have not been assigned any legal role to play under Arms Act 1959 in order to implement Arms Act 1959. I do not think it to be a good idea to assign them any legal role under Arms Act 1959. It will probably create more hurdles for arms license applicants. Rifle Associations have totally seperate role of promoting shooting sports.

I was thinking the Rifle Associations could play a more positive role in terms of Firearms Training, Safety awareness, etc.. AKA N.R.A. Moreover cops here cant even differentiate between Prohibited bore and Prohibited FIrearm..

Rifle Associations can surely play more important role independently of Arms Act 1959. Why they are not doing it? Because many of them have been practically taken over by corrupt and vested interests. Linking such organization legally with the Arms Act 1959 like making a legal precondition of "certificate" etc. from these organizations for arms license would create more problems for arms license applicants.

As far as question of non prohibited bore, prohibited bore and prohibited arms etc. all these are unconstitutional creations and figments of imagination put into the Arms Act 1959. When arms are fundamental right under the Constitution, then how can any arm be prohibited in contravention to the Constitution? State may create more legal paperwork, higher checks and balances etc. for certain type of arms but cannot blindly "prohibit" them. I think you are able to get my point.

Since some DM's have been know to accept donations towards Rifle Associations, I was hoping there would be some kind of legal base to do so..

It was done during British rule to enable arms license holders to come and practice shooting. But now the District Magistrates do not give receipts for such donations rather extortions. It is all black money generation tactics. Probably answer to your query is in this thread viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15478
