This topic has been covered in great detail earlier as well, please see http://www.indiansforguns.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2780 .

As is clearly mentioned on the list posted by you, it is merely an "illustrative" list. The classification as PB or more accurately "restricted" calibre is based on a negative list, as mentioned in Schedule I of the Arms Rules. Only ownership of those calibres EXPLICITLY mentioned on that list (in Schedule I) are restricted and the competent authority to issue an Arms License for those calibre firearms is the Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India. ALL OTHER CALIBRES apart from those EXPLICITLY mentioned as restricted are to be considered as NPB or more accurately "permissible" calibres and licenses for those are issued by the local licensing authority.

There have been some changes in the new Arms Rules 2016, for e.g. now .45 ACP has been removed from the restricted list, 5.56 NATO has been added to that list etc.

They are entirely different cartridges. The .45 ACP (referenced above) is a rimless cartridge while the .455 Webley is a rimmed revolver cartridge which evolved out of the older (black powder only) .476 cartridge.

Of course simply saying .45 and .455 tells only part of the story, a .45 could be a .45 ACP, .45 Colt, .45 Long Colt etc. all of them different from each other.
