Policy Initiatives for Shooters

Naveen has been the driving force behind several changes in the policy governing shooting as a sport in India, which has resulted in the easing of restrictions on sportspersons:

  • Persons defined as “renowned shooters” can now sell old arms after 3 years instead of the earlier bar of 5 years, if they’ve maintained their status as renowned shooters for 3 years. This change was introduced in August 2007.
  • The definition of “renowned shooter” has been changed with effect from October 2007 to mean any shooter attaining a minimum qualifying score prescribed by the National Rifle Association of India. The earlier definition was far narrower.
  • The import duty of 31.703% was withdrawn on air weapons and air pellets with effect from November 2008.
  • Shooters were earlier allowed to import air weapons only after getting an import license. Since July 2005, the Government has begun permitting the import of air guns and air pistols free of import license to shooters registered with the Club, District, State or National Association.
