Applying for License first time; Need a little help

Postby WhoCantBeNamed » Thu Nov 29, 2018 1:43 pm

Hello everyone, I am a resident of Meerut, UP, about to apply for an Arms License for first time for Handguns(revolver/Pistol). Have obtained all the necessary forms(at least I think so). I am in need of a little help/tips on filling out the forms.

Following are the forms I got: -
1. Schedule-III, Part-II, Form A-1(for individuals)
2. Form S-1 (Standard format of training certificate)
3. Form S-2 (Standard form of undertaking for safe storage of firearms)
4. Form S-3 (Standard format of medical certificate)
5. Police report form

Please bear with me as I have a few questions/confusion regarding filling out these.

1. I got two copies of Schedule-III, Part-II, Form A-1(for individuals). Do I need to fill & submit both of these or only one?
2. In form S-1 who is eligible to sign as the certifying person of the training?
3. In form S-2, it is written "Enclose proof of safe storage", Is it necessary to attach a photograph or something of safe/almirah?
4. In from S-3, it is written in heading "On the letter head of the medical practitioner", what do I need to get written on the letter head of Doctor? The same details as mentioned in this form or anything else?
5. In police report form, do I need to fill anything or everything will be filled out by the concerned Policy authorities, there isn't really anything to be filled out by me, I think.
6. Apart from these, do I need to submit/attach anything else? Like any stamp paper or anything else?
I am told to submit these documents: 6 photos, Aadhar, PAN card, Voter ID, Domicile certificate, Highschool marksheet, house tax/electricity bill, last 3 years Income Tax Returns, Proof of service from the company.
Apart from these anything else is needed? Is any separate application etc. needs to be written alongwith the forms?

P.S. - Please pardon if similar information has been discussed earlier. I had searched the forums but couldn't find the questions with which I need help.

Thank you.

Thanks.

I submitted the main Form, safe storage form, Police form, two photos and copy of Aadhaar.

One copy of Form A1 required.
I filled the Safe Storage form and stated that I have a Steel Almirah.
You need to fill your name, parentage and address of the Police form, rest is to be filled by Police Station Incharge.

Thank God my process was way too easier. This is kind of torture. And in the end Licensing Authority still has the right to Reject the application.

Don't worry, this forum has very learned members, they will surely help.

Regards.

Thank you for the information.
Did you submitted any stamp papers too? And Medical Certificate from the CMO?
I was searching for the training certification guy and finally found one, he was quoting Rs.3000 and also said that you need to get medical certificate from the district CMO and then get stamp papers from court(don;t know what to get written on them), and only then the training certificate will be stamped and signed off.

This is some next level torture, I agree. Sad really.

Licensing procedure varies from State to State and even District to District. I only submitted the documents I mentioned. The Training Guy, what is his qualification in providing the Training which will be satisfactory to Licensing Authority?

He runs a shooting range/shooting training center here, I guess that should be enough for the Authority? I have no idea. :?

Thank a ton sir, this would help a lot, especially the affidavit info. Didn;t knew what affidavits were needed.
Just two more questions please: Did the armoury clerk stamped it as well or only the signature would do?
Also it says the doctor need to provide the details on their letterhead. Did you submitted letterhead or only the form would be enough?

Thanks.

The police line guy signed and there was a stamp too, although I will have to find the copy to make sure.

The medical certificate was done on the format provided with the form, no letter head.

Added in 3 minutes :
The training certificate bears stamp, stating name, designation as the head armorer , and location.

Seems you are applying for "self protection " ,then you have to prove your self
.having life threat due to money handling or surroundings or carrying jewellers or carrying bulk money or staying in near wild zones or isolated places

1.police complaint copy
2.income certificate
3.court case copy like that
