Background

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (formerly named RAMBO - Regulatory Authority for Media and Broadcast Organizations) was formed to gradually liberate the broadcasting sector in Pakistan. PEMRA has issued a number of licenses to Cable TV operations, FM Radio stations and Satellite TV Channels.

As per the current rules, FM broadcast licenses are awarded to the parties that commit to open up their FM broadcasting stations in at least one rural city along with the major city of their choice.
