Stockpile Management and Security
The SALW stocks held by the armed forces, police or the other authorized bodies are strictly controlled by the National Staff of Ordnance located in the Ministry of Defense.
The stocks of SALW held by armed forces and police and other authorized bodies are reviewed continuously by the National Staff of Ordnance. The National Staff of Ordnance submits monthly reports to the concerned State authorities.
The stocks of SALW held by armed forces, police and other authorized bodies that are surplus to requirements are identified every now and then. This happens, through written reporting of the SALW at hand with the concerned unit. Based on the report of the concerned unit, the surplus to the requirement of SALW is identified.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
