|Details||Difficulty||In Sindh, the validity period of Fisheries License was 01 financial year. This meant that a license issued in the month of May will expire in June and a fisherman has to file for renewal of the license. The short validity period meant extra compliance burden and cost for poor fishermen.|
|Analysis||After discussions with stakeholders, it was realized that the validity period of fisheries license should be extended to facilitate the fishermen as it will reduce the cost and compliance hassle.|
|Solution||In line with the reform proposal Livestock and Fisheries Department, Sindh has extended the validity period of fisheries license from 01 year to 03 years by amending the rule 4, sub-rule (1) of the Sindh Fisheries Rules, 1983.|
|Evidence||Amendment in Sindh Fisheries Rules 1983- Notification for extension of period from 1 to 3 years|
