ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) launched grey traffic monitoring equipment on Wednesday which was installed earlier this month after being formally tested.

Speaking at the PTA Headquarters, Minister of State for Information and Technology Anusha Rehman directed PTA to carry out ground verification of IP users registered under the "White List" within three days.

Apprising the Acting Chairman PTA Ismail Shah about the focus of the current government to curb the menace of grey traffic, she said that since the equipment was now in place, all illegitimate IPs being used for grey trafficking should be effectively blocked.

Rehman said that apart from blocking IPs, a vigilant mechanism be also formed along with a proper call centre designated to receive complaints.

Directing PTA to take radical steps in this regard, she said that a public awareness campaign should be launched to spread information about grey trafficking.

Shah assured the Ministry of PTA's cooperation and commitment towards curbing grey traffic and said that every step would be taken to curb grey trafficking.
