PTA Pushes Celcos for Implementation of SPAM Protection Regulation

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has once again directed all cellular companies to implement Protection from SPAM, Unsolicited, Fraudulent and Obnoxious Communication Regulation, 2009, as told by industry sources.

As per regulation, which is in effect since August 5th, 2009, cellular companies were required to develop SOPs to detect and filter SPAM calls and text messages.

Cellular companies were also asked to define a DNCR (Do Not Call Register) to avoid tele-marketing calls from those choose not to get tele-marketing calls.

Cellular companies were supposed to make a black list of those subscribers who will violate the rules more than once. On second complaint, one particular subscriber will not be able to get service (tagged with number and CNIC) from any cellular company.

PTA has asked cellular companies to get all these procedures implemented with-in one month.
