Pakistan Table of Frequency Allocations is the broadest level technical document showing the allocation policy of bands to various types of services. This Table is intended to:
- Provide a basis for management of the radiofrequency spectrum in Pakistan
- Inform radio-communication users about the various types of services that can be operated in each frequency band
- Reflect Pakistan's obligations as a member of the ITU and provide details of international frequency allocations agreed by the ITU for the three world Regions.
Table of Frequency Allocations is the first planning document but usually not sufficient for assigning specific frequencies to users. Band Plans and Channel Plans are necessary for effective spectrum management. Band Plans provide detailed allocation of the spectrum between types of services and contain detailed frequency channelling arrangements build in a number of specific interference avoidance measures based on ITU-R Recommendations. This Table of Allocations is drawn from and kept updated with the ITU-R Radio Regulations which are revised at World Radio-communication Conferences and the changes occurred in government policies in order to promote Telecom industry.
