According to the details, the construction industry, e-commerce, shops of essential food items, electricians and plumbers along with other business fields have been allowed to resume their operations across the province.

But first they have to obtain a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of their area. The DCs will grant permission to the shopkeepers to open their business based on the safety measure they take.

The government of Sindh decided that if the nature of the business involves a huge gathering or crowd, then the permission will not be granted.

The deputy commissioners will also make sure that all precautionary measures against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) are strictly followed by people. In case of failure to comply, the NOCs will be taken back.
