STAFF REPORT IBD: The PTA and all cellular mobile operators of the country have commercially launched an automated procedure for sale of mobile SIMs. According to the new mechanism, the subscribers documentation will be maintained electronically and Pre-Sale would be automated thereby linking it with already automated Post-Sale procedure called 789. PTA disclosed that since its commercial launch on April 1, 2012 about 40,000 verification requests have been rejected due to the new security checks in the system.
The Authority hopes that the new system will not only help end misuse of CNICs copy but also facilitate in keeping authentic record of SIMs sale thereby enabling track of sale channels.
