Uganda's telecom regulator UCC sets June deadline for scratch cards
Telecom companies are supposed to submit the current stock of airtime scratch cards including the scratch cards already purchased and en-route to Uganda.

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has set June 30, 2018, as the deadline for phasing out scratch cards.
In its communication dated March, 23, 2018, UCC says telecom companies should commence the use of electronic airtime.

UCC executive Director Godfrey Mutabazi in the release says Telecom companies are also supposed to submit the current stock of airtime scratch cards including the scratch cards already purchased and enroute to Uganda.

The telecom companies are also supposed to provide UCC with a weighted average period in which they would have consumed all scratch cards available in the market and also begin sensitizing the vendors about the phase off of scratch cards.
