Late Night Offers Under the Gun Once Again!
While not for the first time, voice is yet again being raised against the Late Night Offer packages on mobile phones. This time the voice looks more serious as it comes from the Senate Standing Committee. As per news reports PTA is working on the regulation to discourage the LNO packages from mobile operators as they are destroying the youth.
Senate’s Standing Committee on Cabinet Division showed its resentment over delay in the sale of 3G licenses and misappropriation in the universal services fund.
The committee meeting was held at parliament house under its chairperson Senator Kalsum Parveen on Thursday. The committee instructed Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) to finish late night call packages including obnoxious SMS. The committee also directed PTA that all calls on emergency and enquiry numbers should be made free of cost.
Earlier, we had similar call from Punjab Assembly when they unanimously passed a resolution banning late night offers/packages by mobile phone operators.
