According to federal and provincial governments’ draconian notices, arms licenses, not computerised before the announced deadline would expire. The notice leaves many questions unanswered, for instance, why a license that is valid till 2016 would expire? Will the government adjust renewal fee, paid in advance for year 2016, against ‘Omni’ Rs 1400 for NADRA license? Which NADRA facilitation centre a person should contact, if his Punjab license has been made all-Pakistan by Deputy Commissioner Islamabad? The NADRA help line is usually mute about such questions and no one seems to be there to help the helpless multitudes.
