ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has decided to extend the deadline of implementation of device identification registration and blocking system (DIRBS) until further notice.

An official statement issued by the PTA here on Thursday stated that keeping in view the requests from mobile device consumers and stakeholders, and to create further awareness for general public, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has decided to extend the deadline of implementation of DIRBS until a further notice.

Mobile device consumers can continue using the DIRBS facility to verify status of mobile device’s IMEI(s). Users can know the IMEI of their mobile device by dialing *#06#.
