Thanks Abhijeet,
Just out of curiosity was browsing thru the Act and Rules, and discovered that Knives, Swords, Daggers beyond 9" and wider than 2" require a license ???????? They are covered under Schedule I !
Can we start a new thread to discuss this ?

"arms" means articles of any de.scription designed or adapted as weapons for offence or defence, and includes firearms, sharp edged and other deadly weapons, and parts of, and machinery for manufacturing, arms, but does not include articles designed solely for domestic or agricultural uses such as a lathi or an ordinary walking stick and weapons incapable of being used otherwise than as toys or of being converted into serviceable weapons;
