yes anyone can buy a gun with a licence
Hi, Good evening.. I have one doubt to ask that Is anyone can buy a gun with license legally? If so what are all the procedures to apply?
yes anyone can buy a gun with a licence
Should i submit any evidence for that?
It is not easy,you have to follow some procedure, In India, you are entitled to fire arms then you will have to convince police that either you have threat to life or to protect yourself from wild animals. Enquire with your district Superintendent of police for application. You will be interviewed by DM or SP and they will decide whether licence should be given to you.After getting license you can buy the gun.
What are the reasons can be acceptable?
could u advise me clearly please
On receiving the application, the licensing department of local Police checks if the applicant has a past criminal record and verifies address Neighbours are questioned whether the applicant gets involved in brawls and arguments in the neighbourhood frequently The applicant is then called for an interview with DCP to determine if he is mentally, physically sound He should also have a 'valid' reason for wanting to own a gun. Self-defence is counted as one of the reasons The licensing department also sends the applicant's details to the crime record office of the crime branch as well as the national crime record bureau The applicant is then called for an interview with the DCP licensing If he clears all the above steps, he is granted a licence

Thank u so much sir...Thanks for your valuable advice...
The procedure for obtaining the license of a weapon is mentioned below. 1. The application for the grant of Arm License is submitted in the office of DCP by the applicant or through his representative on the prescribed Performa. 2. Required number of passport size photographs are to be submitted along with the form. 3. Attested copy of the proof of residence i.e. Ration Card, Voter Identity Card, Passport, Electricity Bill (current) etc. 4. On receipt of an application, the licensing authority shall call for the report of the Officer in charge of the nearest police station on that application. The SHO of the concerned police station conducts a background check of the applicant to ascertain whether he has a past criminal record. Neighbours are asked about the peaceful nature or lack of it of the applicant. 5. The Applicant is then called for an interview by the licensing authority to ascertain if he is of sound mind. The Licensing Authority, after such inquiry, as it may consider necessary to ascertain the soundness of mind of applicant, and after considering the report received from SHO, shall by order in writing either grant the license or refuse to grant the same. Where the licensing authority deems it necessary for the security of the public, peace or for public safety it may refuse to grant such license. 6. After issue of license the weapon can be purchased from any authorized dealer/authorized licensee. After purchase of weapon it has to be produced for inspection for getting the entry made in the license booklet.
You have every right to keep the weapon for your self defence.
Thanks for response sir, Now I am well cleared about this but I dont have an enough proof for this.. I am having only Ration card, school college certificates and Pan card. Is this enough Sir.
How much amount should i spend for this?
Ration Card and Pan Card are valid proofs of identity but do not qualify as proof of residence. You may submit your school/college certificates wherein your address has been mentioned.
The amount required to be spend on the entire process is very nominal.
you must be having your telephone bill / your electricity bill . it would be proof of residence . if you have Aadhar card it would be proof of identity as well as address . the amount required to be spent for obtaining license would be nominal

A DSP rank officer is normally the licensing authority. You will have to locate its office in your city. Thereafter, file an application in the prescribed format which can obtained from the office itself.
There is no need to speak directly with police.
