The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) will now be able to itself block the inappropriate websites under the new system introduced for the prevention of immoral content, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

As per the official sources, the PTA will be able to block the inappropriate websites at domain level under the Domain Name System (DNS).

Earlier, a list of websites used to be sent to the internet providers for blocking them.

“There is no social media monitoring mechanism in the new system,” the PTA spokesman said.

“The new system is designed to block unethical content,” he added.

“The new system will not affect the privacy of citizens,” he claimed.

“The new system will not affect the speed of the internet,” he added.

“The automated system for blocking websites will save time,” he pointed.
