If my (Google-assisted) translation is right, I'm reading in the
second-to-last paragraph something like:

"If, for any reason, the implementation of this plan by the 1st of
Farvardin, 1401 [2022-03-21] does not occur, the plan will be implemented
from the 31st of Shahrīvar of the next year."

Due to poor translation quality, it's not immediately clear to me whether
that means "next year", as in the Persian year which is about to start in a
few days (1401), or *the* next year after the one already mentioned (i.e.,
1402).  Depending on the meaning, permanent +0330 could take effect from
31 Shahrīvar 1401 (2022-09-22) or from 31 Shahrīvar 1402 (2023-09-22) if
it's unable to come into force this week.  Could you clarify your
understanding from the original Persian as to the most correct
interpretation of the delay provision here?
