An officer of the armed forces does not require a license to keep a handgun as long as he is in service.A similar query has already been answered earlier.
thanks buddy, that's alright ,but how can one procure an IOF pistol or revolver without a valid arms license? can any body answer?
Defense Services officers usually keep a personal weapon without a Lic that has been issued by the Ordinance Branch via the COD Jabalpur.Wpns issued from COD are called NSP wpns.
However while in service one can keep a personal fire arm re hand gun without lic even if not issued from the COD.
On retiring from service he or she would have to apply for a lic and have the same endorsed on it/
To apply for and be issued an IOF rev or Pistol from the OFB even a offr from the armed forces would require a lic.
penpusher is correct this Q has been answered earlier look arround.
