3GIn a development at PM house today, It was decided that Ministry of Information Technology will immediately advertise a job for consultant in the media to expedite the process of 3G license auction which has already got delayed considerably due to the unnecessary official procedures.

Earlier, PTA was suppose to advertise this job – however, it appears, government isn’t happy with the PTA and task has been handed over to MoIT.

In a briefing on 3G license by the Ministry of Information Technology, chaired by Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, PTA was directed to seek list of experts from Ministry of Information Technology to evaluate Expression of Interest (EOI) from the consultant. PTA assured that the letter would be written to the Ministry for seeking the list of participants to be the part of the EOI/RFP committee in order to meet the imperative of transparency in absolute terms.

PTA Member Technical assured that after receiving the list from Ministry of Information Technology PTA would accord approval as per the provision of section 5 (2) (R) of Pakistan Telecommunication Re-Organization Act 1996

It was also reiterated in the meeting that it is the PTA’s responsibility to carry out the auction of 3G license in a transparent manner.

Information Memorandum on 3G will also be drafted from scratch, after the input of consultant that is supposed to be hired very soon.

The meeting was attended by Mr. Qamar Zaman Kaira, Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Dr. Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, Minister for Finance, Chaudhry Ahmad Mukhtar, Minister for Water and Power, Mr. Asim Hussain, Advisor on Petroleum, Secretaries for IT, Finance, Law & Justice and other government officials.

  • we’ll w8ng fr ths gud thing …..without corrutptn in it … thre is raja pervaiz ,,,,,,hhaahahahah….isy bhe railway ki tarha kha jaye ga

  • Govt plans on raising $1 billion (PKR 950 billion!) through auctioning of 3G licenses so that it can pocket this money before the elections.

  • 3G auction is likely to bring Rs. 57 billion for the govt. So I think the govt. will not risk delaying 3G auction process anymore.

  • look we lack thinkers, they do things that they think may benefit them. They dont think of us. What have they done so far, Have they solve the Electricity issue, is 3G more imp then solving the Electricity Crises?

  • This would be the last nail in the coffin box of economy of our country if Daaku Group does auction of 3G.

    Daaku & Company! please Pakistan ki jaan Chhor do, aur dafa ho jao, hamen 3G nhi chahiey…….. hamen G3 chahiey tum logon ki khopri mn sorakh krny k liey……

  • aisa lag raha hai 3G hamare agle nasal 30 sal bad use kare gi jab world 20G par pohanch jaye ga 3G sunte sunte kan pak gaye hain.
