Arms Act (1878) [India Act XI, 1878] (1st October 1878)

Article 1

Nothing herein contained shall apply to —
(a) arms, ammunition or military stores on board any sea-going vessel and forming part of her ordinary armament or equipment, or

(b) the manufacture, conversion, sale, import, export, transport, bearing or possession of arms, ammunition or military stores by order of the Government, or by a public servant or a member of either of the forces constituted by the Burma Territorial Force Act or the Burma Auxiliary Force Act, in the course of his duty as such public servant or member.

[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org found no evidence of a provision in law to regulate this aspect of firearm policy. As some authorities enforce restrictions only in practice, the mere absence of a published legal provision should be treated with caution]
