If the area of your residence comes under jurisdiction of Kolkata Police, then you will have to apply in the office of DCP(Licensing) department under Arms Act 1959, of Kolkata Police Head Quarters at Lalbazar. Else you will have to apply to the office District Magistrate of the district in which your residence is located.

The full process has been discussed a number of times in this forum. You may use the search option. In the short the process is as follows -

1. Fill up the application form carefully and submit it along with copies of proof of id, proof of residence, your photo, fees etc. etc. Get the acknowledgement receipt of submission of application form. The office of licensing authority should also be able to guide you in details.

2. Wait till the application is processed. Ultimately the license will be issued or denied.

3. If license is denied do not panic or loose heart. Be patient and polite. Rejection of license is not something unusual or to be shocked about. Happily get the reasons for rejection in writing from licensing authority. Appeal to the appellate authority. If still rejected approach High Court for writ for directions to licensing authority to issue the license as per Arms Act 1959.

DM (District Magistrate) is the competent authority to issue a Firearm License. In most cases DM authority is DC of the district.

Yes DM is usually the Licensing Authority but in metropolitan areas like New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata etc. having the Commissionerate system, the licensing authority is usually the DCP licensing. You may get further clarification by reading arms rules about this matter.

Any citizen or person can apply. You will have apply for arms license under Arms Act 1959 like anybody else. Arms Act 1959 has provisions for issuing license to both citizens and persons. Since you are not citizen of India, you will come under the category of persons. Proof of identity and proof of residence will be certainly required. Since you are not a citizen of India, you will have to convince the licensing authority why you need to possess a gun.

Greeting . Can a ALL INDIA valid arm license be renewed from any state in
India other than the issuing state  ?

( Say for example : An arm license is issued from Mumbai - Maharashtra ,
the arm license holder ( with his arms )  is travelling in Rajasthan ( as
he / she has a Valid all India area extention ) now , the 3 year term of
his/her license is coming to an end ! My question is : can it be renewed in
Jaipur ? With unique ID   in place  can jaipur admn renew a Mumbai license
? )
Thanks and Regards

1. If you have shifted residence, then the licensing authority having jurisdiction over the area for your new residence should receive the renewal application and do everything that is required.

2. If you have not shifted residence but only traveling and suddenly realize that license is expiring tomorrow, then you have no choice except to contact the local licensing authority to receive your renewal application, forward it to the concerned licensing authority and give you receipt of the same so that police may not arrest you.
