Indian citizens have also been ordered to not employ any Pakistani citizen and not to have any kind of business relationship with the neighbouring country.
In case of receiving spoof calls from Pakistan, no citizen can exchange any kind of sensitive information with unknown people through any medium of telecommunication. SIM cards registered in Pakistan can also not be used, as per the order.
But the order doesn’t apply to Pakistani citizens who have registered with foreigner registration officer, said the district administration.
India has withdrawn the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status accorded to Pakistan a day after the terror attack on CRPF’s convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district in which as many as 40 jawans were killed and many injured.
Meanwhile, even as the nation awaits action, Union Minister of State for External Affairs General VK Singh has said that “India will choose time and place for retaliation”, adding that “it will be properly planned and well thought of”.
Talking to mediapersons in Himachal Pradesh on Monday, Singh added that he was not aware of what was being planned by the forces but emphasised that “any war, war-like or punitive action” needed a proper design for it to be successful. “It should be a cold act and nothing is to be done in a hurry,” he said.
