Please read Section 15 of Arms Act 1959. As per Section 15 of Arms Act 1959, license can be issued maximum for 3 years. So just forget about lifetime validity at the moment. When time for renewal comes, just get it renewed for all india again. If some problem comes at that time, then think at that time.mankaran_sandhu wrote:But unfortunately due to the 2016 arms act it’s valid only for a period of 3 years and then I have to get it renewed again. Will the 2017 amendments posted above help me getting it changed to Lifetime validity?

The licensing authorities in different locations and states are pretty arbitrary,they have their own whims and fancies,arms rules 2016 provides for keeping the area validity intact and normally it is left as it is,unless some thing stands out they won’t alter it,but by and large the licensing authorities are law unto themselves,schedule V of the arms rules 2016 lays down the time limit for renewal, issue, sale permission etc,it took me two years to get permission to sell firearms against a limit of 5 days prescribed in schedule V.Appeal etc are not effective,high courts are the last resort.
