Clearing Up Misconceptions:

  • No Broad Tax Removal: Contrary to rumors, there’s been no announcement eliminating FBR taxes on mobile phone registration.
  • Temporary Exemption for Overseas Pakistanis: The Prime Minister did extend a program allowing overseas Pakistanis to register phones tax-free for 120 days per visit (July 2023). This temporary measure is the only current exception.
  • Non-PTA Phones and Easy Registration: False! Claims suggesting non-PTA phones can be legalized by simply inserting a SIM are misleading. The Device Identification Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) ensures phones meet technical standards and comply with regulations after FBR tax payment.

Understanding the Process:

  • PTA’s Role: The PTA verifies technical specifications for mobile device registration through DIRBS.
  • FBR’s Responsibility: The Federal Board of Revenue sets and collects mobile phone import taxes.

Where to Get Accurate Information?

The PTA urges citizens to rely on official sources for updates on mobile phone taxes. You can confirm the latest information directly from the FBR.
