Today I met a guy in my friends office. As we both are gun enthusiasts.. we were discussing about the laws..
He is from Bihar, son of an Ex-Army personnel. His father owned the a gun (DBBL) which he got transferred to him as family heirloom. All this has happened 6 years ago.
In our conversation, I asked how come he is carrying his gun to Hyderabad, Telangana. He mention that he has All India Validity . And he said after one year of holding the license, we can request for all India validity and AL will do it. Now this comes to my surprise. I have even asked him, if he has used alternate methods or mentioned the reason for extension. But he responded NO and said usually AL does not bother to extend validity, but a simple application request.
Can anyone here confirm this- after one year we can get area extension or all India validity without much fuss.
I am not aware of any such rule and as far as my knowledge goes no such rule exists. AIV is sanctioned to only a limited category of people like govt. officials who may get transferred any where in India or renowned shooters etc. One may also apply for AIV if he travels on official work around India, but that is a rare condition.
Also AIV is sanctioned by the MHA, except for renowned shooters that can be done by the LA.
