The government of Sindh has taken the decision of suspending the registration of more than 2,500 NGOs out of the 10,500.
The move is possibly suggested for following the failure of the submission of the yearly audit report by the non-governmental organisations and the poor performance in activities for the welfare of the public, as per sources.
The secretary of the Sindh social welfare department—Muhammad Nawaz Sheikh said that only 4,000 NGOs are working and not a single organisation has so far submitted its annual audit report. He warned that the provincial government would be taking the necessary action against the organisations.
He also said that the provincial authorities would start suspending the registration of the NGOs from the month of December. The secretary asked NGOs for improving their performance for the betterment of the province locals. He made the announcement that strict law would be enforced for the new NGOs by the government of Sindh.
Back in the month of October last year, the Interior Ministry barred 18 International Non-Governmental Organisations link (INGOs) from operating in Pakistan and ordered them to leave the country within a span of 60 days.
