You Can Now Pay for Your Phone’s PTA Approval on Installments

Pakistan’s economic situation is worse than it has ever been. The value of our currency is in shambles and taxes are sky-high, which is why importing a smartphone is ridiculously expensive.

Retail prices are off the charts and having to pay for PTA approvals takes things even further with mid-range phones costing above Rs. 100,000 while flagships go as high as Rs 300,000 and more.

But a new development should make things a bit more feasible for the masses.

Bank Alfalah’s e-marketplace Alfa Mall is now offering installments on PTA approvals, but only for select smartphones. These phones include Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Ultra, iPhone 13, and all iPhone 14 series phones.

The total PTA charges on these phones range between Rs. 130,000 to Rs. 190,000, but this can be paid in 3 to 6 months with 0% markup. You only need to choose an installment plan, enter your CNIC number, and also the IMEI code of your phone and you’re done.

Note that it can take up to 3 to 5 working days to complete the PTA approval process. You will also be notified of your approval through a confirmation call from the merchant.

  • Why would anyone pay rs 190000 or 130000 in taxes? Govt should be realistic, these taxes should be waved off completely, let the people breath.

  • Do you know what processing fee and FED Alfa mall charges on these installments? I believe that it’s 8% plus 16% FED of the 8% of the total amount.

  • Then these taxes paid by people of pakistan and will be utilized by ASHRAFIA poor assembly members in terms of free fuel, free electricity and many more benefits.
    Lets stop granting ASHRAFIA all those benefits and lets them pay for everything from thier own pocket. Did any ASHRAFIA paid the expensive phone taxes to PTA. NOT AT ALL.

  • Why are these Samsung and Apple latest phones imported even? Why can we not let go off super luxury in a time when common man is finding it had to arrange two meals a day? Why should the poor pay the price for luxuries of the rich? Pakistan is fighting so hard to get loans in USD, then we squander it on luxuries as if we are a very rich country.

  • Jb tk aasmani makhlooq, holy cows, and corrupt treen politicians ko sar e aam awam k samny ibrat k nishan nhi bnaya jata aur corruption k trillions of dollars bima jurmana in dhakoun choron ghaddaron sy wasool nhi kiay jaty tb tk yeh mulk taraqi nhi kr sakta.
    Jb china wala sakht tareen ehtasab k qanoon yaha Pakistan ma lago nhi hota tb tk awam yaha isi tara pisti rhy gi aur is awam k khoon paseny ki kamai k tax k paisa aasmani makhlooq, holy cows and corrupt treen politicians isi khaty rhy gy aur Pakistan isi tara world no 1 bheekari rhy ga

  • These inhumane taxes were implemented by the f…king PTI government who use to call themselves a well wisher of overseas Pakistanis, where as we are not even able to use our own phone for not more then a month. F…cking Hippocrates.
