Arms Rules, 2016  mandatorily requires UIN (Unique Identification Number) to be noted on the Arms Licence issued by the Licencing authority. Any Arms Licence without the UIN is not a valid licence.  It must be understood that UIN is to be issued to a licensee and not to a licence. All types of  licensees including individuals, institutions, Arms Dealers, Arms Manufacturers, Sports associations etc are required to have the UIN. All Licensees are required to contact their Licencing Authority for getting UIN to retain validity of the Arms Licence.
