According to the latest news update, Supreme Court of Pakistan has ordered Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to do 3G auction within 30 days.

The deadline was given by a three member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry after hearing the case against appointment of PTA members and 3G auction process.  The bench also ordered the appointment of Chairman PTA within the next 15 days.

The chief justice further said that in the absence of the PTA, grey trafficking had become a billion rupee business as there was no authority to check it. He added that this might be the reason why the PTA was being stopped from becoming a regulator.
