The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has launched an online system to immediately block the lost, stolen and snatched mobile phones.
The new Lost & Stolen Device System LSDS will help the users who want to block their phones in case of stolen, snatched or lost.
“Complainants can easily file a request with PTA for blocking the IMEI of such handset to prevent it from potential misuse,” the PTA spokesperson said in a statement.
Under the new system, the stolen mobile phone will be blocked within 24 hours of reporting after necessary verification.
LSDS is an automated system integrated with the PTA’s Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS), according to the statement.
