Deadline of 90-day has been given by the government to the Pakistan Telecommunication and operators to begin tracking of all e-mails, phone telephone calls and other devices with the world, reported The News today.
The newspaper said the govt has allocated PTCL and other providers to set up tracking devices by the end of this year for verifying speech and e-mail devices from overseas and the solutions of the nation's spy organization will be used generally to examine and control blasphemous and indecent sites on the Internet.
It merits mentioning here that this increase of JD’s in Telecom sector will bring in the opportunity for a lot of unemployed people as companies would be needing more and more vigilant monitoring though it is to be done with the help of tracking tools but it needs man power to keep looking into the alerts and alarms that these tools generate.
This is a good initiative by the government which is going to bring a big positive change in the country, be it looking after terrorist activities and tracking them or blocking and shutting down the Zionist’s network that hurt Muslims by spreading blasphemous content.
We have already got YouTube Banned and over the recent days we have witnessed Pakistani government to take steps to block blasphemous content on Google. We can now see a series of actions by the government to stop these activities which is a result of Protests Conducted by the People of Pakistan and especially the role of all great Muslim scholars is adorable as they have pushed the government for this stance by either registering petitions in the high court or by realizing the importance of the issue in general public and gathered them to be united at least in this case.
Sikandar Naqi, senior professional v. p. told the paper “the regulator, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), has allocated 14 LDIs, such as PTCL, to set up this tracking equipment,”.
He said the PTA had set up a system to examine 15 gb (GB) traffic proactively arriving from worldwide tracks at a price of $10 million in 2008. Now this worldwide visitors from overseas has improved to 275 GB so the price of tracking could be greater.
He banished the impact that after putting International Cleaning House (ICH), the amount of inbound phone calls from overseas especially from European countries, US and Canada had gone up to unmatched levels, declaring that in the pre-ICH the accepted cancellations rate was standing at 6.25 cents which went up to 8.80 cents from Oct 1, 2012.
The cancellations prices of other nations revealed that the rate being billed by Pakistan was not uncommon as it was standing at 8 to 10 cents in Western Partnership, 16 cents in Afghanistan, 21.5 cents in Oman, 10 cents in Philippines, 15 cents in Norwegian, 15 cents in Qatar, 9.5 cents in Sri Lanka, 10.5 cents in Saudi Arabic, 13 cents in UAE and 8 cents in UK Cellular.
So far the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has gathered $40 million in the first 15 times of Oct after putting ICH procedure and the govt desires $1 billion dollars in the whole financial year.
