The Arms Act, 1959 replaced the British-era Indian Arms Act, 1878 that was an act regulating the manufacture, sale, possession, and carry of firearms. The Act was passed to consolidate and amend the law relating to arms and ammunition in order to curb illegal weapons and violence stemming from them. It defines a specific class of ‘prohibited’ arms and ammunitions, restricts their use and prescribes penalties for contravention of its provisions.

Sir,I would like to know that my father name is mentioned in every where even in family property " Rana sing" but in my all document mentioned "Jaipal singh" Now may father is alive so in future is any problem will occur due to this and what can I do about this - Shri Kumar
Your dad needs to prove that he has continued to be known by two names in India. The process for name change is outlined here : http://www.ruly.in/free-Legal-Advice/How-can-a-person-get-their-name-changed-in-India---name/386
But he doesn't need to change his name. You can get a same name affidavit drafted, through a process same as stated in the above question. A person having two different names, rather two different variations of the same name, is culturally common (esp wrt middle name) in India. However, in your case, since the two names are quite different, the notarizing officer might require you to produce relevant documents etc proving your dad's identity.
I hope that the lawyers here would weigh in on this answer... Read More
Does it need to be said before a Kazi/masjid or can the husband say it anywhere for it to be a valid divorce as per muslim law?
Divorce in Islam involves the pronouncement by husband 'talaq' (arabic for divorce) to his wife orally or written anywhere. If pronounced thrice (triple talaq), the divorce is permanent and the husband and wife cannot remarry without certain conditions being met (the wife getting re-married with someone and divorced again). A single pronouncement is sufficient to suspend the marriage, but after this the husband can cancel divorce within iddah (3 monthly periods(of the wife) or until the end of pregnancy).
A wife cannot initiate the divorce unless her husband agrees to it or she wins the approval of a qadi (majistrate / judge of a Shariah court), who can divorce the marriage or divorce the couple.
The Muslim Personal Law or the Shariah Law applies to followers of Islam in India with respect to matters of family and marriage.
After divorce, Quran specifies responsibilities regarding child maintenance in 223rd verse of Second Chapter. Quran also prohibits interventions from the previous husband in the divorced woman's life in 232nd verse of second chapter.
In Islam, a mahr is a mandatory payment, in the form of money or possessions paid or promised to pay by the groom, or by groom's father, to the bride at the time of marriage, that legally becomes her property. After divorce, based on the length of the marriage, carnal life of the couple, children and who initiates divorce (husband or wife), the wife is entitled to get either full or half mahr or nill sometimes. However, unlike most Western laws where the couple split assets earned during the marriage, Islamic law does not entitle the wife to a split of the husband's assets at divorce.

The Supreme Court of India banned Jallikattu and bull race in Maharastra in the year 2014 citing Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act-1960, which prohibits the use of animals for entertainment or display.
Animal activists and PETA India have protested against the practice since 2004. In 2009, the Tamil Nadu government passed the Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikattu Act of 2009 - a state law that allowed Jallikattu under some conditions. In 2011, the environment ministry passed an order that declared sports involving animals like Jallikattu illegal.
In 2014, the Supreme Court struck down the Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikattu Act of 2009 stating that it violates the national law. “Even bulls have rights against torture,” the court had said. The court also upheld the 2011 environment ministry order. The court order was based on a report by the Animal Welfare Board of India, which found that bulls were bitten, stabbed and pulled by the tail during the taming sport. “Being dumb and helpless, they suffer in silence. We notice that the situation is the same in Maharashtra too,” the court said.
On 7 January, 2016, the Government of India issued a notification that had re-introduced bulls into the fold of 'performing animals' under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act of 1960, thus giving an indirect nod to jallikattu, which the court had described as an act of "inherent cruelty". However, on 14 January, 2016, the Supreme Court of India upheld its ban on the event, leading to protests all over Tamil Nadu. On November 16, 2016, the Bench dismissed the State government's review petition against the 2014 judgment, saying the very act of "taming a bull" was counter to the concept of welfare of the animal under the 1960 Act.
After the apex court passed its order, several high courts also banned animal sacrifice and sports across the states. Allowing Jallikattu would have spurred other courts – from Punjab and Uttar Pradesh to Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Assam and Maharashtra – to allow cruelty to animals in the name of tradition.
With the onset of Pongal (the harvest festival in Tamil Nadu - mid-january 2017), the jallikattu issue has again propped up in the mainstream. While the Central government has declined to pass an ordinance to allow Jallikattu, and the SC refusing to rush the judgement on the January 2016 central government notification there is open defiance in some districts in Tamil Nadu where Jallikattu is organised over the Pongal weekend (14-16)....

I have realized that there were mistakes in my tax return filed a couple of years back in 2011. Can I be prosecuted for it in 2017 or later?
As per the new Income Tax laws, you can submit a revised return within one year from the end of the financial year in which you had submitted your original return provided that you had submitted a return (even if incorrect) by the due date in that financial year. So if you submitted your IT return by the 31st of July 2016, you have till the 31st of March 2017 to file a revised return for the year 2015-2016 ( Assessment year 2016-2017).
Since your query is for an incorrect (presumably understated) return filed more than a year back, you cannot file a revised return without penalty. You can, of course, do nothing about it and hope that your case doesn't come up for scrutiny of past returns.
The IT department carries out assessments of all IT returns filed. And the possible outcomes of each of the assessments are slightly different
Would refer you to the Income Tax department's website for this matter: http://www.incometaxindia.gov.in/Pages/faqs.aspx . You should find a lot of your income tax related queries answered there.... Read More
A friend suggested that I shouldn't let my house on rent for a period more than 11 months via agreement as it would come under strict rental laws which could affect me in future. So I have been renewing 11 months contract if required. Now I want to rent out a commercial space. How should I go about it? I would also need help in drafting the contract. The property is in TamilNadu.
