A new computerized system is jointly introduced by National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) and Interior Ministry of Punjab that will make it easier for you to get a new, renew existing or cancel your weapon license quite easily. Computerized Arms License System (CALS) is the name given to this new system.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) is signed between NADRA and Punjab govt. to issue computerized arms licenses in Punjab that would help to identify fake weapon license and provide satisfaction and security to the citizens.

In the first stage, the old weapons licenses will be replaced by smart cards in 9 districts including Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Peshawar, Sargodha, Multan, Sukkur and Hyderabad.
