No hisab kitab to be given . Just keep the empties safely and there is no such rule in arms act about keep any empties so relax .
No matter what acp ,dcp or commissioner says their saying doesn’t have any legal backing as nothing is written in arms act .

Please state which is your licencing authority.?. District Collector or COP ,has no right to ask about the spent ammo or empties. If you are a citizen licence holder ( not a target shooter and without your NRAI shooter ID) then you can ask your licencing authority in writing by registered post or online for your rightfull quantity of ammunition as per the latest provisions of the arms act and rules.

In Uttar Pradesh, police does sometimes asks for empties from license holder but never heard that one has to take permission from anyone before buying their allowed quota of ammunition.
