PTA Bans Xiaomi Mi-Devices

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is once again in action! The authorities have banned the sale of Xiaomi smartphones in Pakistan for not adhering to country’s telecom policies. These smartphones were famous as “Mi devices”. All the smartphone sets have to be type-approved by the PTA and Xiaomi has not received any type-approval yet. Type-approval is a kind of approval needed for smartphone makers for the submission of their phone sets to the PTA.

PTA has issued a statement letter to the Xiaomi smartphones, which says that sale and purchase of these Mi Devices is being banned in Pakistan. The website XiaomiPK.com has been banned from any kind of sale and marketing. According to PTA officials, Xiaomi is trying to create their monopoly in the Pakistani mobile market. No mobile brand or company is allowed to do so.

PTA defends their action by stating the fact that Pakistani mobile market deserves to get a fair competition, where not just one mobile market grabs the power to dominate all the others. This affects the quality and services of other mobile companies too. Nevertheless, Xiaomi was the third largest smartphone maker in the world following Samsung, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC).

PTA is constantly involved in taking strict decisions regarding Pakistan’s telecommunications policy from quite some time. They have charged things more up after the acceptance of Cyber Crime Bill in the country. Let’s hope that all the decisions PTA is actually taking for the country works best in its favor.
