For arms license transfer


mandeepd

Question

My grand father was an army man. He had a 12 bore gun with license issued by DM Sriganganagar, Rajasthan. After grand father's expiry in 1994, my father was ordered to keep the gun in an armory. He kept it to a private armory by the permission of DM and applied for license transfer in 1995 when district Hanumangarh had been separated from Sriganganagar and now we are residing in Hanumangarh and the complete case is under DM, Hanumangarh. Since 1996, we did not get any information regarding about the license application, the weapon and the armory to which the gun was submitted because it has no address now. What should we do to know about the said queries? Please help us to file RTI.

 

Thanks and Regards

MANDEEP

If your father has obtained a receipt and the receipt is preserved, file Application seeking information under RTI Act, pasting copy of receipt on back of RTI Application, and seek present status of weapon, the address where it was kept, further procedure for applying for a license to keep the weapon as family legacy.

Follow format and fee structure of the concerned state where deposit receipt was issued and application has to be filed to Public Information Officer, o/o Collector..........District.

Dear Mandeep

 

a. If you dont need the weapon, you/your father (as legal heir) can sell it after obtaining permission from DM.

 

b.You may file RTI for action taken report on your application for transfer.

 

c.The weapon is still on the license of your grand father or your father.

The weapon is still on my grand father's license. The issue is to transfer my grand father's license to my father's name on the basis of family legacy. He did not get the license yet since 1995 after grand father's death. We have complete documents regarding the application but we dont have any information about the weapon. How can we locate the armory where the weapon was kept on the order of DM, Hanumangarh Rajasthan.

 

Thank you Sir suggesting me.

We will follow the procedure suggested.

 

Regards

Mandeep

The entire details of weapon like make, model, manufacturer, number, bore size, weight etc., has to be recorded in a permanent register while issuing you such custody receipt. Please seek that details also from them. You need not pay any fees for the intervening period, as the weapon is not in your custody and as due approvals were not given.

Infact, you can even approach Consumer forum for inordinate delay 19 years, and seek compensation from authority, as they might have ignored regular upkeep and servicing required for such weapons and If I am right, it might have been jammed and unfit for use due to negligence of the authority.

In addition to action taken report, please also add/ask from DM office as legal heir (do enclose relevant docs):

 

a. Certified copy of permission letter by which order for deposition of weapon was issued in respect of arms license no.xyz

b. Date of deposition of the fire arm and name and address of the licensed/approved shop where weapon was deposited, copy of any official document showing details in this regard.

 

Please feel free to modify to suit your requirements.

Thank you Sir for suggestions.

May you more suggest us under which act can we seek compensation from authority. Even we had asked to pay for custody of the weapon and we had also paid it for first 36 months. We have the rough proof of payment.

You have pledged the weapon for safe custody. Under Indian Contact Act, or under CP Act (if they charged any remuneration/services charges for safe custody of Arm) the dept., ought to have taken normal precautions a prudent man will take, as though the goods belong to him. Neither they have taken adequate care nor informed you anything about further developments that lead to deficiency of services. Now as this forum is dedicated only to RTI matters, while getting back the arm, demand for proper functioning of the gun, through their experts and demand a report. (First trace the arm, then things follow)

License of arm can not be transferred to son if father who was license holder of arm expired. The son have to apply for a new license in if it is granted by the authority only then son can claim to get back his father's arm( in this case 12 bore gun). Otherwise authority will auction it and pay the amount to son ( heir).

To grant license or not depends on licensing authority. If You have not mentioned "license for 12 bore gun" in your application please make endorsement in your application by filing additional application to the authority.
