The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has launched an automated system for blocking lost, snatched and stolen mobile phones, on Wednesday (today).
Taking it to Twitter, PTA announced that, “PTA has launched a new automated Lost & Stolen Device System (LSDS) for blocking of automated system mobile phones.”
“The new system will provide ease & facilitation to the users who want to get mobile phone blocked incase it has been stolen, snatched or lost.” it further added.
The users will have to lodge a request with PTA through its online Complaint Management System (CMS) at www.pta.gov.pk. The complainant will receive a complaint reference number upon successful registration of the blocking request.
In case the phone is recovered, the same procedure will be followed to get it unblocked.
