Hello everyone this is the link in which my administration has ordered to deposit one firearm with arms dealer or local police station before December 2020 and after 90 days it will be deleted from the licence hope this link opens up.

It would be worth mentioning here that anyone who has three weapons should at least try to find out if one of them qualifies as a curio. At least you'd be able to hang on to it that way.

For this one has to get the firearm punctured and get the certificate of its non functionable from any armer n again permission to keep this as wall hanging depend on the mercy of authority. Is there any possibal way out to keep all the 3 weapons, as govt is asking to deposit it free of cost n I am pretty sure that most of these gun would be in authority's hand ( name) without any efforts. Remain in home n be safe.. Cheers n regards

No, the clause you are referring to is listed as "deactivation" and not curio in arms rule 2016. Curios do not need to be mutilated for possession and can be kept in functional state without a license in as many quantities as desired.

You cannot purchase ammunition for a curio though, nor can you take it out of your house.

Check section 2 (ii) (b) of - http://egazette.nic.in/WriteReadData/2020/216103.pdf

However, I cannot find any info on how arms are to be classified as curios. Is an official body supposed to inspect a weapon and then issue a certificate declaring it as a curio? Or can we just possess a curio without needing to declare anything to the authorities? If anyone knows more on this, please do post.

The new arms act permits 2 weapons. What the gentlemen are refering here is from the Bill which was tabled In the parliament.
The bill has been amended and now it has two weapon keeping provision.
