Green Signal from Government for License Renewal Policy

The wait is finally over now because Pakistan Telecom Authority (PTA) and the Ministry of Information and Technology have officially started working on license renewal policy of telecom operators. In the current scenario of a country where foreign direct investment is playing a vital role to boost the economy.

License Renewal Policy

In a recent interview with Express Tribune, PTA stated;

“The renewal of licence and associated spectrum at the end of a licence duration will be as per the policy of the government. In case of renewal of licences, PTA will make recommendations to the federal government within the time specified in the respective licences.”

This statement by the government is a game changer and relief for the telecom industry of Pakistan. PTA also enforced that all procedures related to licence renewal must be handled in a timely manner. So, consumers and mobile operators don’t face any issue.

Well, it’s really great to see the significance of government for the license renewal policy. It’s almost impossible to imagine a life without a 3G/4G data connection. Especially when you are a frequent traveller or social media marketing then you need data connection 24/7. Otherwise, your work will be paused, your content couldn’t be posted on social media, and your followers would be kept waiting to see your updates and so on.

The issue is getting bigger with every passing day as very short time has remained for the license renewal. Well, it’s really glad to see that Prime Minister Imran Khan showed some seriousness for this issue. He has made a committee to access the standards for the license renewal of three major telecom operators. The government is also expecting to generate 1-2 billion USD in revenue from this process.

In this digital era, life can never be imagined without the internet. Especially for those who are earning online. Well, after the formation of a technical board on the order of PM Imran Khan, a new hope has been generated. It’s like a beam of light in the dark, for the telecom operators.

According to experts, the license policy should be finalized at least 20 to 24 months before the expiry date to avoid any kind of problems. The license of two major cellular networks Telenor Pakistan and Jazz are going to expire in this month. The industry may face a tough time if the license wouldn’t be renewed before the expiry date. While the license of Zong is also going to expire later in this year.

It’s almost impossible to travelling somewhere from where you can’t post your content on social media, due to no signals on your smartphone. Even you can’t avail the facility of cab service without having 3G/4G data on your phone. The things which can’t even be imagined, how can we face in the future?

However, the government should take immediate action on it. Formation of a board isn’t enough, the execution and how fast the work is being done is actually matters. Plus, it’s not only about you and me. It’s about Pakistan, if the issue wouldn’t be resolved soon, the country might face inflation.

What if your mobile signals disappear and you can no more access 3G/4G internet?

It seems shocking but you might face this. If the government wouldn’t renew the license of telecom operators. Basically, the license is required to be renewed after a certain period of time. It’s a worldwide policy which applies to every country. Similarly, in Pakistan, the license of the telecom operators is about to hit the expiry date. The renewal policy has already been delayed by the government for a year.

Now, the tension is increasing with every passing day. It’s a very serious problem which mobile operators are facing nowadays. The telecom industry plays a vital role in the economy of Pakistan. They have created many job opportunities for the youth of the country. From foreign direct investment (FDI) in billions of dollars have already provided a boost to the economy of Pakistan. Unfortunately, this all might be stopped. If no serious consideration would be shown to the renewal license policy.

Telecom industry has unveiled that they are supposed to pay the renewal fee in US Dollars. While their revenue is in Pakistani rupee but due to the devaluation of Pakistani currency, the fee is undoubtedly so high. It’s almost impossible to pay the fee in dollars. So, they have requested to the Pakistani government that they should consider the use of Pakistani currency as renewal fees than paying in dollars.

The government is focusing on Digital Pakistan. To achieve this goal everything needs to be digitalized. It’s almost impossible to achieve this objective if the license policy wouldn’t be renewed.

Youth is earning from social media platforms, blogging and other social networking sites. 3G/4G has been their basic need. In fact, many agencies are achieving their digital goals because of the internet, which they can access at almost every corner of Pakistan.
