You basically need to fill form A in SCHEDULE-III which basically is a form for applying arms license for individuals or you can go to your local court or district magistrate office , district superintendent of the police and buy the form it actually cost around 10-20 rupees
Once you submit your form they will do background check on you , check your pending case , ask your surrounding people.
Then you will be called for personal interview by DCP or the licensing authority to see if you are physically fit and mentally stable.
