State Stockpile Management and Security
The SALW held by the armed forces, police and other Para-military forces are
managed under a comprehensive system of regulations issued by Central and State
Governments. The concerned government agency issues arms and ammunitions to armed forces, para-military forces and police as per the authorised scale and requirements.
Under Chapter XX of the Defence Service Regulations (Regulations for the Army), specific and exhaustive provisions have been laid down for management and security of SALW held by the Army. These stocks are checked every quarter.
Police arms and ammunition which have been classified as obsolete or
unserviceable are earmarked for destruction before they are destroyed by the concerned State Police Forces at a central location under proper supervision.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
