The President and CEO of the Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL), Walid Irshaid, has assured the Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD) to resolve the telecommunication issues of their members. 

The PTCL chief gave the assurance during his visit to the ABAD House in Karachi during which he had a detailed meeting with a delegation of the Association, headed by their Chairman, Junaid Ashraf Taloo.

The meeting was attended by a number of members of the ABAD and officials of the PTCL. 

“The PTCL is always willing to address the telecommunication issues of members of ABAD. The facilities like telephone and DSL boradband will be provided at the project site during the construction so that the concept of plug and play is materialized,” Walid Irshaid declared. 

The ABAD Chairman appreciated the assurances coming from the PTCL President but expressed his reservations about the infrastructure of the Corporation having becoming old and obsolete which needed to be updated on an urgent basis. 

The PTCL President revealed that his organization was already working on this matter and hopefully the improvement will materialize in the very near future. 

To a question Walid Irshaid explained that the efforts were being made to bring the standard of the PTCL at par with that of Etisalat. He said that all their services could be compared with those available in any country of the world. 

“The change has begun in the PTCL but taking into account the population and size of Pakistan it is going to be gigantic task,” he added. 

Mohammad Hassan Bakshi, Chairman, Southern Region, suggested that the sim verification should be made on annual basis to curb criminal activities. 

The PTCL President emphasized that no compromise will be made on the national security issues.
