What happens to the “Notices” after they have been taken?

Everyday we are flooded with reports through the media that the Chief Secretary has taken notice of this or that issue.

For instance;

Chief Secretary has taken notice of shortage of wheat!

Chief Secretary takes notice of non-payment of pensions on time!

Chief Secretary has taken notice of the load shedding in the city of Gilgit

Chief Secretary takes strong notice of complaints of corruption in different departments

Chief Secretary has taken notice of the bad condition of roads in the city

Chief Secretary has taken notice of the shortage of medicines

Chief Secretary has been taken notice of absence of doctors

Chief secretary has taken strong notice of shortage of medicines

Why are so many issues still remaining despite of this oft repeated mantra of “notice-has-been-taken”?
