PakistanTeleCommunicationLtd Over view of the organization: Pakistan remains one of the fastest growing telecom markets in the world and PTCL is the oldest and foremost part of this market. It has been serving the nation since the times of the formation of Pakistan. The series of changes through which PTCL has passed through in the history is described below: Pakistan Post & Telegraph (P&T): In the beginning, both the postal and telecommunication services were performed by a single department known as Pakistan post & telegraph (P&T).

This department started its telephone services with only 12346 telephone lines and seven telegraph offices all over the Pakistan. Pakistan Telegraph & Telephone department (T&T): The P&T department was modified into Pakistan telegraph and telephone department in the year 1962. The present systems as well as new installations were managed by the T&T quiet efficiently. Pakistan telecommunication department (PTC); Telegraph and telephone (T&T) department was then converted into a statuary corporation onl 5th December, 1990. It had its own legal identity totally separated from government of Pakistan.

Re-structuring of PTC: The PTC was further segregated into four separate unit’s in1996 namely: 1 . Pakistan Telecommunication Limited (PTCL): PTCL was incorporated on December 31st 1995 and commenced business on January 1st 1996. This basic purpose of its formation was to provide better services to its customers. This was established to undertake the telecommunication business ormally carried out by the PTC. It was responsible for carrying out all kinds of telecommunications activities in the country and to look after the existing telecom field.

All properties, assets, obligations and liabilities of PTC were accordingly transferred to the PTCL on 1st January, 1996. Brief History: From the beginnings of Posts & Telegraph Department in 1947 and establishment of Pakistan Telephone & Telegraph Department in 1962, PTCL has been a major player in telecommunication in Pakistan. Despite having established a network of huge size, PTCL workings and policies have attracted regular criticism from other smaller perators and the civil society of Pakistan.

Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation (PTC) took over operations and functions from Pakistan Telephone and Telegraph Department under Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation Act 1991. This coincided with the Government’s competitive policy, encouraging private sector participation and resulting in award of licenses for cellular, card-operated pay-phones, paging and, lately, data communication services. Following a progressive policy, the Government in 1991, announced its plans to privatize PTCL, and in 1994 issued six million vouchers exchangeable into 600 million shares of the hopeful PTCL in two eparate placements.

Each had a par value of PRs. 10 per share. These vouchers were converted into PTCL shares in mid-1996. In 1995, Pakistan Telecommunication (Restructuring) Ordinance formed the basis for PTCL monopoly over basic telephony in the country. The provisions of the Ordinance were rented durability in October 1996 through Pakistan Telecommunication (Restructuring) Act. The same year, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited was formed and listed on all stock exchanges of Pakistan PTCL launched its mobile and data services companies in 2001 by the name of Ufone and PakNet respectively.

None of the brands made it to the top openings in the respective competitions. Lately, however, Ufone had increased its market share in the cellular sector. The PakNet brand has effectively dissolved over the period of time. Recent DSL services launched by PTCL reflect this by the introduction of a new brand name and operation of the service being directly supervised by PTCL. Last Year, in middle of 2005 Government of Pakistan had decided to sell at least 26 percent of this company to some private agency.

There were three participants in the bet for privatization of PTCL. Etisalat, a Dubai based company was ble to get the shares with a large margin in the bet. Last year when Government was going to privatize the company there was country wide protest and strike by PTCL workers. They even disordered Phone lines of some big Government institutions like Punjab University Lahore and many lines of public sector were also blocked. Military had to take over the management of all the Exchanges in the country. They arrested many workers and put them behind bars.

The contention between Government and employees ended with a 30% increase in the salaries of workers. There have been various changes in the company due to privatization. Such examples include the VSS (Voluntary Separation Scheme for its employees), ERP (SAP based), restructuring, B& CC (Billing and Customer Care Software) etc. Another seemingly minor change was change of brand identity (logo) that will present PTCL’s new face after privatization, with greater focus on customer satisfaction and bringing about of new advancements in telecom for Pakistani consumers.
