Is license for nsp weapon required by serving army officer

Postby chandramanikumar » Wed Jul 02, 2014 8:41 am

I have been allotted a NSP .38 pistol by MGO. Is it mandatory for an army officer to possess a valid arms license inorder to acquire, keep and carry a nsp weapon while in service. If not then under what sections of the arms act? Pls help

Captain and above, while still serving are exempt for 2 handguns, for any Rifle and SG need license(easy to get on recommendation of CO). On retirement handgun exemption status is lost and need license, apply before retiring when it will be granted easily.

If it is the .380 ACP, i.e., pistol cartridge, then not a PB. Which specific .38 is your handgun chambered for?

Dear Sirs,
Yes,license for NSP weapon is must as you leave your unit.
You apply to the DM of your hometown with the allotment letter and I don't see any problem you getting an all india license.
Best regards..
Mahendra
