    I got a new connection after July 1, and I had to pay Rs 598. That probably includes some taxes and whatnot.

    • Navy

      500 + 19.5% FED

      =597.50

      • Monster

        16% value added tax & 10% Zardari Tax :D

      Did you paid 598? because the Installation costs comes in the first bill you got!

      • http://www.hungry.com/~fn/ Faried Nawaz

        Yes, like I said, I did pay the amount.

      As far as you don’t come across a billing issue

        Beileve me even a direct complaint to Chairman PTA and PTCL was a waste to time as far as my billing dispute with PTCL was concerned.

    Oh PTCL just doing marketing to increase the no of users of landline so they will able to get more consumers of DSL in future, from one side they are lowering the price and on second side they are increasing the charges of DSL, i don’t understand this strategy of PTCL

    Please mention the bribe money that we need to pay to supervisor aka “Ba-sha” otherwise this amount would be valid for few months but after those few months still you won’t be able to get connection without bribe.

      Approx 500 to line man, based on experience

  • Fahad

    More connection more line rent.

    What a great service by PTCL. Its been now three months I am still wating for the installation of my landline.

    How lucky I am that my number is active and receiving bills but till date no one has come to my house to install the landline.

    I lodged a complaint on 1236, PTCL Customer Service Centre and ultimately I was referred to my concerned exchange, unfortunately no one is able to resolve the issue.

    PTCL helplines are just for marketing and offer you products at your door step but once you get into trouble, a billing issue, faulty line etc, no one at helpline will be able to resolve your issue.

    Well done PTCL good facelift by hiding all wrikles under new clothes.
