No legal-illegal mobile to be shut down: Mustafa Jabbar
Published: 22:02 21 October 2021
Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar said the network of any legal or illegal mobile handset will not be shut down considering the suffering of the customers.
He informed the new decision of the Ministry of Post and Telecommunication to the media on Thursday.
Following this decision, all types of handsets will be automatically registered with the BTRC’s National Equipment Identity Registrar.
The minister said the BTRC’s job was to keep a detailed database of all handsets operating in the country. This is being done successfully. If the National Board of Revenue wants, BTRC can provide a list of handsets brought with value-added tax evasion.
The BTRC issued a final notice a week ago to disconnect the unregistered handsets. Due to the new decision, no handsets will be disconnected in the future.
