There is no ban on import of ammunition into the country by dealers. Also .22lr is not in the list of cartridges that can be imported by dealers. Currently ammunition prices are very high in the international market. Also, DGFT was not issuing import licenses to dealers. It is only recently that some have been issued. It is however meaningless for buyers of .22lr ammunition.

no there is no import ban on import of cartridges and current shortage of ammo have nothing to do with it.
it is complicated so i will have to write a big post so you can understand and i am a very bad writer.
in single line every ammo manufacturer have a quota system a fixed number of cartridges they will give to their main dealers in 6 months
and takes money in advance for one year.so if pay today i will get ammo after six months it was pre covid situation and had shortage then also.
In today's date dealers have already picked up 10 times more of their allotted quota and upto year 2025,26.There is severe shortage of practice
ammo you can get flagship ammo which is 4, 5 time more expensive than their practice ammo.i was able to get 10000 sk standard plus and 5000 midas plus in dec 2021.
why DGCA will not give permit?

NO, unofficial import ban by DGFT imposed to check dropping FOREX reserves

That doesn't seem like any kind of realistic reason, as total value of ammo imported for civilian use, isn't even a fraction of a drop - when seen in context of our overall national imports.

Ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia created sudden spike in Lead Cost in International market , eventually shoots up price for Most Ammo's due to increased production cost.

All kinds of factors have contributed to the high cost of ammunition and components, as well as the general availability of the same at any price.

The war in Ukraine has made ammunition and ammunition components scarce. For instance, powder manufacturers are concentrating on powders that are in greater demand for munitions used in the war, while production of other powders has been curtailed.

Similarly, ammunition that is most common receives production priority because it is known that it will sell quickly, and that high demand will support high prices.

For this reason, many calibers are rare or unavailable world wide.

Covid has contributed to production issues, especially in China and Australia, where a lot of mining products and nitrates are produced. This includes the nitrates to make powders, as well as chemicals used to make primers.

Trade issues have restricted trade from China in some cases.

Both of these factors have also caused trade problems in maritime shipping, harbor loading and off loading, and ground transportation.

A lot of the world's ammunition manufacturing, along with the production and sale of ammunition components, have been concentrated by mergers and buyouts into the hands of fewer companies than before. The less the competition in any market, the higher prices go.
