    It is due to PTA itself, they are doing things which get people into business and others to use gray providers. If PTA had kept the rates lower they would have been out of business long ago and things like 3g and other options for cheaper calls are made available, it wouldn’t have happened. Lower rates bring more inbound traffic, which is that actual money making of a provider.

    Grey Traffic has significantly increased ever since PTA took control of Monitoring System from “Agency”. Industry lost another 3 Million minutes per day traffic to grey routes after this administrative change. If this is the competency level of PTA for curbing grey traffic, how it will be reduced?

      no such image i have now, but very simple is
      some one call you from abroad, the call then transfer over internet using voip (voice over internet protocol/ like viber or skype) and through that channel it comes to pakistan, In pakistan illegal exchanges receive those calls on mobile network sim and then transfer the call to the desired number. If you receive a call from Uk or any other country, you will see a local mobile number which actually received the call and transferring to your number.
      If you ever received international call from local mobile number, report that number to pta through any mean (toll free, website, email).

    I have reported a number of times to PTA about the local Sim numbers but nothing happened still getting overseas calls through those numbers.

    The only reason they started the complain system, so they can get their share from these 3rd parties.

    Pakistani Zindabad, they always find ways to make money for themselves under legal umbrella of system.
