According to a post on KP’s Facebook page, the shooting range has been opened with a view to promote shooting as a sport and to provide opportunity to the common people.

Specifically, as the DC (Traffic), who is in charge of the whole process, said during the opening, the primary focus is on creating world-class shooters from Bengal. Bengal has talent; Kolkata Police is just trying to give an opportunity to those talents.

A nominal fee of Rs 100 is charged towards the cost of ammunition and maintenance. For those seriously interested in pursuing the sport, facility for practice is offered at Rs 200 per month.
