PTA Block Import Mobile without IMEI

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has resolved to block the sales of the mobile phones that are not approved by it. It comes as a result of increasing pressure on telecom regulator to curb the use of mobile phones and SIMs in the terrorist activities all around the country.


PTA has written down to Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) that custom officials are not to clear any consignments of mobile phones until and unless importer has not acquired the type approval for design and IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) from PTA.

By getting the type approval a mobile phone manufacturer / importer will be liable to submit all the IMEI numbers against a particular handset model that will be sold in Pakistan.
