Govt Set to Include ISI, GHQ Representatives in Committee for 4G, 5G Spectrum Auction

Federal Cabinet is set to approve the formation of the Auction Advisory Committee

On Friday, the Federal Cabinet is set to approve the formation of the Auction Advisory Committee, which would monitor the spectrum auctions for Pakistan’s next-generation mobile services (NGMS). This committee will include officials from GHQ and ISI. 

The Cabinet’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has already given its approval for the formation of the Auction Advisory Committee, which will supervise any spectrum sales for NGMS. On Friday, the federal cabinet will meet, and Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, will preside. 

In order to oversee the spectrum auctions for Pakistan’s NGMS, the ECC had received a report from the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication regarding the formation of the Auction Advisory Committee. Miftah Ismail, the finance minister, who presided over the ECC meeting, thought about and approved the report.
