The Ministry of Home Affairs has urged registered societies to file their annual returns with the Registrar of Societies by April 30, 2018.
Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo says societies that will not comply within the stipulated period will be deregistered.
Mr. Kampyongo says the move will mitigate and reduce the number of erring societies.
He says the exercise will help weed out dormant societies which have stopped operating legally.
And Mr. Kampyongo says the Registrar of Societies has embarked on digitalization of all records of registered societies.
He said this at a media briefing in Lusaka.
