In order to consult the general public on the new regulations, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has created a framework for such consultation.
The framework outlines the procedure for starting and concluding stakeholder and public consultation as well as the process for public consultation for any new regulations. Before implementing any regulatory framework, the PTA will publish a notice in newspapers and on its website asking for public input on any matter.
If deemed necessary, PTA will notify the public and convene a public hearing. According to the framework, anyone can apply to participate in the public hearing.
