In today’s digital age, smartphones have become an integral part of our lives, providing connectivity, convenience, and productivity. However, the process of obtaining Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) approval for imported smartphones has often been a cumbersome and expensive task, deterring many individuals from complying with regulations. To alleviate this issue, Bank Alfalah’s Alfa Mall introduces an innovative solution, allowing customers to obtain PTA approval for their smartphones through an easy installment plan without the need for upfront payments.

Navigating Tax Hurdles with Alfa Mall’s Installment Plan

The Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR) taxes on imported smartphones have significantly increased their cost, with flagship phones now subject to taxes exceeding Rs. 150,000. This hefty tax burden has made acquiring PTA approval a financial challenge for many users. Previously, a significant portion of a smartphone’s cost had to be paid upfront to secure PTA approval, discouraging individuals from completing the process.
