The Indian government has banned the import of guns, guns and gunslingers.
The ban was announced in the national gun policy framework passed by the Parliament on Saturday.
The government said it would be effective on December 1.
The move is in line with a 2015 National Action Plan (NAP) on firearms.
This aims to strengthen the control of guns in the country.
The NAP includes an increase in the minimum age for gun ownership to 18 years, as well as a prohibition on the sale and transfer of guns and the manufacture and sale of handguns.
The prohibition on guns is applicable to any person who is a resident of India.
It also includes a provision that any person found possessing any of the banned items could face jail term of up to three years.
