Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to provide SMS alerts to 60 academic institutions

Islamabad:Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) would provide free web-based SMS Alert System to around 60 educational institutes across country.

This SMS alert system will be used by schools to communicate with their students/staff. The PTA selected total of 60 institutes, including 21 colleges, 10 cadet colleges, 4 universities, one medical college and 5 special colleges for deployment of this SMS alert system.

As per details, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has started a project named ‘SMS-based Information System’ for educational institutions, to equip them with an interactive mobile application for broadcasting important information to students and their guardians on their mobile phones. It is a system of sending SMS by using computer software developed by PTA. It has been noted that usually management of educational institutions relies on mail-correspondence with guardians, which is costly and time consuming. PTA would provide this software free of cost to educational institutions across the country.

A formal launching ceremony of the system was held today at PTA Headquarters. On the occasion, Naguibullah Malik, Secretary (IT), handed over the software application along with its operating manual to Abdur Rauf Chaudhry, secretary (Education).
