PTA and mobile operators are busy in minting mines by loot and plunder at every nook and corner of the franchises, business centers, dealers and outlets overcharging in the name of Biometric verification system of mobile SIMs, which was earlier started in Pakistan from 1st August 2014 and failed to attain the objectives.
According to the government PTA policy, mobile companies started the process of verification of mbiles SIMs and charging Rs. 20 to 30 each customer by loot and plunder all over at hundreds and thousands of customer services centers, retailers and dealers at every nook and corner in Pakistan, likewise vehicles and arms registration in the provinces through NADRA and biometric still in doldrums and billions of rupees collected but objectives failed to achieve.
PTA Biometric Mobile SIM,s verification system have launched by charging Rs. 10 each customers but despite of sum amount Rs. 20 to 30 charged each customers for this purpose told hundreds customers and personally observed such facts by this scribe.
No doubt Pakistan telecommunication authority has taken once great step for the security purpose through Mobile SIM ownership with Biometric verification system automatically.
According to PTA due to law and order situation ownership of SIM would be secure by Biometric verification system with charges of Rs 10 services and verification process will conduct by NADRA automatically with thumb impression on the machine, then machine will collect data and it will verify shortly.
For this verification process Biometric machines have been provided at all Franchises, customer care centers and registered shops and outlets in every nook and corner of country, but unfortunately once again it is only paid by customers in the connection.
On the occasion, civil society, customers and other organizations have condemned such a behavior by the Authorities and mobile operators and demanded that wave off charges immediately, which is a solely responsibility of operators they should take it legal and foolproof while services.
