For readers’ information, the Class Value Added Services has become so important in the post-deregulation era. In Pakistan, PTA had been following the pattern of issuing a license for every value-added service in the past. On the other hand, there existed some services that had gone unnoticed.

Class Value Added Licensed Service (CVALS) regime consists of only two types of licenses i.e. A Data type and a Voice type.

All class value-added licensed and registered services can only be provided through mutual interconnects and marketing agreements with Local Loop Operators, Long Distance and International Operators, Infrastructure operators and Cellular Operators,
with PTCL included.
