I am directed to refer to the subject noted above and to the decision of the Provincial Corona Task Force meeting held under the Chairmanship of Honourable Chief Minister, Sindh on dated 23rd July 2021 regarding the blockage of mobile SIMS in the phased manner of those people who did not turn up for vaccination despite all efforts made by Sindh Government through print, electronic and social media as well as despite all possible measures taken by District administration across the province.
