Well, that means all the documents which are expired since February 1, 2020 or were to expire before 31 December, 2020, will be valid till the end of this year. It is worth to mention that the department has extended the validity of the documents for the third time in this year, and that is due to the outbreak of coronavirus and the lockdown which imposed across the country to curb the disease.
