Muscat: A fine not less than OMR 1,000 and not exceeding OMR 100,000 will be imposed for any one who offers postal or related services without obtaining a license, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) announced on Tuesday.
A statement issued online by the TRA said: "The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), would like to announce that practicing the provisions of postal and related services in the Sultanate requires a license from the Authority. A punishment with a fine not exceeding OMR 100,000 and not less than OMR 1,000 shall be imposed upon any person who offers postal or related services without obtaining a license.
