At a time when most of the private mobile operators are offering roaming services for Pakistan to their subscribers, BSNL has expressed its inability to do so in view of some technical stipulations like disclosing contents of SMS.

It may not be possible to meet some of the technical and commercial terms and conditions, sources said adding that BSNL has sought clarifications from the Department of Telecom in this regard.

Sources said that the corporation had already finalised the rate for roaming, and was awaiting clarifications now. Earlier this month, the government permitted roaming facility on mobile phones for Pakistan for a period of four months.
