For gun licence in MP, plant saplings, shoot selfie

Gwalior (MP): Want a gun licence? Plant trees and shoot a selfie—this is the new rule in Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior-Chambal region, known for its infatuation with firearms.

An exception will be made only if the licence is sought because of an immediate threat to the applicant’s life.

“Gun licence seekers will need to plant at least 10 saplings. If the person does not own land, the administration has earmarked revenue land where he or she can plant saplings,” said Gwalior district collector Anurag Choudhary.

Mere planting would not suffice, though. The applicant will be required to take care of the saplings for a month, click a selfie with them immediately after planting and a month later, and attach the pictures with the application.

To further verify that the condition has been fulfilled, a report will be sought from the Patwari, a local government official, the collector said.

The condition will be relaxed only if the licence-seeker is facing an immediate threat to life. In such cases, she or he would be required to plant saplings after getting the licence.

“We are also thinking of making tree plantation a condition for issuing permissions for petrol pumps and stone crushers. After all, it will make the environment better,” Choudhary said.
