    4th complaint No. on 21-09-2019 complaint No. 60. But all above complaint are still pending at your end.

    Furthermore, Many times, I have visited the PTCL Metroville SITE Branch and also called them on phone No. 02136750000 and 02136750001 and repeatedly request them to solve the issue but all in vain and also contacted Orangi Town PTCL Office Telephone Number 02136653333 but no one attend the calls.

    Such type of employees are not beneficial for PTCL Offices. Please Transfer the staff of Metroville SITE Branch to any other place and arrange the efficient and honest staff for Metroville SITE Branch.

    Thanking you,

    Choudhary Javaid Iqbal
