  • faisal aslam

    بھائیوں میں 4 تاریخ سے کوشش کررہا ہوں مگر سوائے موبائل بیلنس ضایئع ہونے کے کچھ فائدہ نہیں ہورہا ہے۔ بکنگ فل ہونے کا مسیج آرہا ہے۔ یہاں تک کہ اسٹیٹ بینک کی مین برانچ کا کوڈ بھی فل بکنگ شو کررہا ہے۔ عجیب انتظام ہے خدایا۔ شاید ایس ایم ایس سے کمارہے ہیں۔

    • Shani

      Bhai Booking Full Ho gai hai me ne tu 31 May Ko kar deya tha mujhe jab unho 11 june ka time deya hai

  • Muhammad S Munawar

    Got this message “ Dear Citizen, we regret to inform you that the service has reached its full limit.The booking for this service is closed now.Thank you.” This is in contradiction as no deadline for booking was mentioned in your circular and yiu have mentioned that the issuance of notes will continue upto 14th june.
