According to a press release, legal proceedings in case of non-compliance might entail fine and even cancellation of the licence. “All those cable operators whose licences have expired must renew their licences immediately, otherwise Pemra will legally proceed, which includes confiscation of equipment and imprisonment for a term which may extend to four years,” the official warned.
