PTA allows free SMS for Ehsas Program

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Thursday announced to make charge-free the SMS sent to Ehasas Program.

A statement issued by PTA said that to facilitate people sending SMS to BISP code 8171 for Ehsas Program registration, all SMSs will be free with no charging from April 10, 2020.

This decision to make SMS service free of charge has been taken in view of problems faced by some mobile subscribers with no balance, who now will be able to send SMS on 8171 with zero balance.

It may be mentioned that PTA is extending full support to BISP, without any financial benefit, in its efforts to reach out people wanting for help through mobile technology.
