4G Licenses in FY 2024-25

The government has projected earnings of Rs. 32.612 billion from 4G license sales under non-tax revenue for the fiscal year 2024-25. This is a significant increase compared to the Rs. 7.597 billion budgeted for the outgoing fiscal year, which was later revised upward to Rs. 30.941 billion.

According to the 2024-25 budget documents, the government expects to raise Rs. 10 billion from the mobile handset levy, consistent with the Rs. 10 billion budgeted for the outgoing fiscal year, which was later adjusted to Rs. 8 billion.

Under the income from property and enterprise category, specifically from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (surplus), the government anticipates generating Rs. 1.2 billion for the next fiscal year. This compares to the Rs. 1.628 billion initially budgeted for the outgoing fiscal year, later revised to Rs. 2.802 billion.

Additionally, the government has allocated Rs. 10.036 billion from regulatory authorities (surplus/penalties) for the 2024-25 budget. This is up from the Rs. 7.203 billion budgeted for the current fiscal year, which was subsequently revised to Rs. 1.168 million.
