ARMS LICENCE RENEWAL 1 YEAR ONLY

Just heard from a clerk in Arms Department Kolkata that the Arms Licence renewal is valid for 1 year and not 3 years as earlier. Is it true?

I am certain that in Kolkata any current Arms Licence has only 1 year renewal period only. I spoke to the Arms Department yesterday. Its really frustrating to pay 1550 for a 1 year period validity. Sadly this is for Kolkata only and not for the rest of West Bengal.

Also heard the online process is tedious and takes a 1-2 months sometimes, which used to be completed in a week earlier. The clerks are themselves helpless and are advising us to file a Writ petition. The clerks are saying the situation may change after the election.

Senior members from Kolkata please advice what should be done.
Thanks in advance.
