Letters to Editor: Stop 5 Percent Jagga Tax on Every Reload

Stop 5 Percent Jagga Tax on Every Reload

Dear Editor,

Today, I am trying to put your keen attention towards the issue of “5%” jagga tax on recharge and on easyloads other than 10% Govt. Tax.

Cellular companies had announced 5 percent service charges to improve their services, but alas we don’t see any good there – rather services are undergoing degradation as time is passing.

There’s no concrete justification for such issue, I need a free legal support to fight against such Zardari Tax.

Ufone Looting its Customers

Dear Sir,

Ufone claims that it is providing very best services but in reality this company is looting to its customers by charging a service that comes free of cost usually.

Zong and Telenor is providing SMS and call details of prepaid numbers free of charge but Ufone is charging 12 rupees for checking one instance of your calls and SMS details.

Ufone started its ‘self care portal’ with option to check SMS and call history details for free. But soon it has imposed charges on this service to make money.

Moreover, you can’t check call details of more than 7 days, means you will have to spend Rs. 12 for call details of each week.

Regards
Abdul Rehman

    I agree Ufone Cheating in many way.
    for example am not subscribe any package like Call tone, and Miss call alert then why they charge me ? automatically subscribe any offers ?

  • There will be a day when you have to pay Rs. 150 tax on a Rs. 100 Card/Load :P

    Dears,
    Definitely with PTA suspense account, all companies silently deposit that 5% to that a/c.
    I contacted all firms in this regard, PTA says; currency fluctuation,load shedding issues are the main reason for such step, which they says; independently step by Cellular Operators,what a big joke,every One’s know without PTA- Not a single charge implement on customer.,what a shame for this nation, bear all such high charges very calmly!!!
    In fact,v r not a nation. V live for ourselves now.. n feel happy to bear such unfair charges from GOVT.
    Ufone Claims such 5% as they reserved the right to make any changes in the tariff so on..
    Warid & Telenor easily accepts that a v deposit all the amount in PTA account.
    Talking about F.B.R., so they says; we don’t have any concern with 5%, contact PTA for more assistance :-)
    I’ve all email record from PTA to FBR.
    But everyOne claims such money as their right, so where the customer go?
    Feel happy to bear such charges, because we’re use to it!

    Ufone should take step and stop charging on online calls & Sms details of Prepaid Numbers to maintain its best image and to compete with other companies.

    Dears,
    Particularly about this topic, when i complaint to different Cellular Operators, they all contact me by Phone, and u know what the biggest GOLI in their email, as per conversation, we inform customer and phir welcome to comments us .. hahahaha
    Only Allah runs this country,everyone as much as they could suck the blood of this country.
    5% everyone knows jagga tax,bt still no one speak up at any level ?
    if supreme court take action, i heard from different operators representatives,even Supreme Court can’t vanish such charges.. hahha
    WHAT IS SUPREME COURT than, a superior or inferior??
    GOVT. lawyers visit there for toilet and then back to their work – sleeping .. hahaha

    Dears,
    All Cellular operators have their bank accounts in Saving Bank account,on which they get a heavy interest, so which company is working other than SOOD?
