  10. 10. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCL INTRODUCTION Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation (PTC) has established in December 1990,taking over operations and functions from Pakistan Telephone and Telegraph Department underPakistan Telecommunication Corporation Act 1991. This coincided with the Governments competitive policy, encouraging private sectorparticipation and resulting in award of licenses for cellular, card-operated payphones, paging and,lately, data communication services. Page | 10University of Sargodha
  11. 11. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCL In 1994, the PTCL becomes the company limited (Pakistan Telecommunication CompanyLimited) by issued six million vouchers exchangeable into 600 million shares of the PTCL in twoseparate placements. Each had a par value of Rs. 10 per share. These vouchers were convertedinto PTCL shares in mid-1996. In 1995, Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Ordinance formed the basis forPTCL monopoly over basic telecommunication sector in the country. It also paved the way forthe establishment of an independent regulatory regime. The provisions of the Ordinance were lentpermanence in October 1996 through Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Act. The year 2006-07 in the telecom sector was marked by the phenomenal growth in themobile sector in Pakistan, which doubled its subscriber base to 60 million. The teledensityincreased from 26% to 40%, helping to spread the benefits of communication technology acrossthe country. PTCL ’s mobile phone subsidiary Ufone’s subscriber base grew by more than 87%,from 7.49 million to 14 million. The year also witnessed the entry of major telecom companies,most notably China Telecom and Singtel, into market. The privatization of the company was completed in the FY06, following the purchaser of26% ‘B’ class ordinary shares by Etisalat International Pakistan L.L.C. EIP took overmanagement control on 12th on April 2006. In short PTCL has been working vigorously to meet the dual challenge of telecomdevelopment and socio-economic uplift of the country. This is characterized by a clearerappreciation of ongoing telecom scenario wherein convergence of technologies continuouslychanges the shape of the sector. Page | 11University of Sargodha
  12. 12. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLCENT RAL BACKGROUNDThe telecommunications industry is at the forefront of the information age²delivering voice,data, graphics and video at ever increasing speeds and in an increasing number of ways. Whereaswire line telephone communication was once the primary service of the industry, wirelesscommunication services and cable and satellite program distribution make up an increasing shareof the industry.The largest sector of the telecommunications industry continues to be made up of wiredtelecommunications carriers. Establishments in this sector mainly provide telephone service viawires and cables that connect customers premises to central offices maintained bytelecomm urinations companies. The central offices contain switching equipment that routes1content to its final destination or to another switching center that determines the most efficientroute for the content to take. While voice used to be the main type of data transmitted over thewires, wired telecommunications service now includes the transmission of all types of graphic,video, and electronic data mainly over the Inter net.These new services have been made possible through the use of digital technologies that providemuch more efficient use of the telecommunications networks. One major technology breaksdigital signals into packets during transmission. Networks of computerized switching equipment,called packet switched networks, route the packets. Packets may take separate paths totheir destination and may share the paths with packets from other users. At the destination, thepackets are reassembled, and the transmission is complete. Because packet switching considersalternate routes, and allows multiple transmissions to share the same route, it results in a moreefficient use oftelecommunications capacity as packets are routed along less congested routes. Wirelesstelecommunications carriers, many of which are subsidiaries of the wired carriers, transmitvoice, graphics, data, and Internet access through the transmission of signals over networksof radio towers. The signal is transmitted through an antenna into the wire line network. Page | 12University of Sargodha
  13. 13. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLOther wireless ser vices include beeper and paging services. Because wireless devices require nowire line connection, they are popular with customers who need to communicate as they travel,residents of areas with inadequate wire line service, and those who simply desire the convenienceof portable communications. Increasing numbers of consumers are choosing to replace theirhome landlines with wireless phones.Wireless telecommunications carriers are deploying several new technologies to allow faster datatransmission and better Internet access that should make them competitive with wire linecarriers. One technology is called third generation (3G) wireless access. With this technology,wireless carriers plan to sell music, videos, and other exclusive content that can be downloadedand played on phones designed for 3G technologies. Wireless carriers are developing the nextgeneration of technologies that will surpass 3G with even faster data transmission.Another technology is called ³fixed wireless service,´ which involves connecting thetelephone and/or Internet wiring system in a home or business to an antenna, instead of atelephone line. The replacement of landlines with cellular service has become increasinglycommon because advances in wireless systems have provided data transmission speedscomparable to broadband landline systems.COMPANY BACKGROUNDPakistan has made steady pr ogress in expanding telecommunication networks and servicesin recent years. In Pakistan this industry had few big giants in the past with PTCL being the Page | 13University of Sargodha
  14. 14. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLsole provider of landline telephone service in the country. At present the organizationsprincipal activity is to provide telecommunication services all over the country. It offers bothdomestic and international services throughout Pakistan. PTCL also manufacturestelecommunication related equipment.Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited had exclusive rights to provide basictelecom services in Pakistan till the end of year 2002. With the announcement of DeregulationPolicy by the Government of Pakistan in 2003, PTA has issued licenses for basic telephony to theprivate sector in Pakistan who will be competing PTCL, the incumbent. From the humblebeginnings of Posts & Telegraph Department in 1947 and establishment of Pakistan Telephone& Telegraph Department in 1962, to this very day, ours is a story of commitment and vision.PTC set sails for its voyage of glory in December 1990, taking over operations and functionsfrom Pakistan Telephone and Telegraph Department under Pakistan TelecommunicationCorporation Act 1991. This coincided with the Governments competitive policy, encouragingprivate sector participation and resulting in award of licenses for cellular, card-operatedpayphones, paging and, lately, data communication ser vices.Pursuing a progressive policy, the Government in 1991, announced its plans to privatize PTC, andin 1994 issued six million voucher s exchangeable into 600 million shares of the would-be PTCLin two separate placements. Each had a par value of Rs. 10 per share. These vouchers wereconverted into PTCL shares in mid- 1996.In 1995, Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Ordinance formed the basis for PTCLmonopoly over basic telephony in the country. It also paved the way for the establishment of anindependent regulatory regime. The provisions of the Ordinance were lent permanence inOctober 1996 through Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Act. The same year,Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited was for med and listed on all stock exchanges ofPakistanSince then, PTCL has been working vigorously to meet the dual challenge of telecomdevelopment and socio-economic uplift of the country. This is characterized by a clearer Page | 14University of Sargodha
  15. 15. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLappreciation of ongoing telecom scenario wherein convergence of technologies continuouslychanges the shape of the sector. A measure of this understanding is progressive measures such asestablishment of the companys mobile and Internet subsidiaries in 1998.As telecommunication monopolies head towards an imminent end, services and infrastructureprovider s are set to face even bigger challenges. Pakistan also entered post-monopoly era withderegulation of the sector in January 2003. On the Government level, a comprehensiveliberalization policy for telecom sector is in the offing.PTCL is in full awareness of the same, and future policies feature a strong conviction of healthycompetition.The company is in process of enhancing organizational and business proficiency throughvertical integration and horizontal diversification. At the same time, cross-national ownerships,operations and partnerships are being evaluated with a view to developing and diversifying thebusiness.RESTRUCTURING OF PTCLThe governments efforts to restructure and privatize PTCL have been on-again off-againsince1991. It had an offer in the late 1990s for 26 percent equity, reputedly totaling $3 billion,butheld out in negotiations and ultimately missed the unique global market window at that time.Since then, it has had difficulty attracting potential buyers.Investors have been concerned about political risk, and appropriate support from the government Page | 15University of Sargodha
  16. 16. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLto transform the utility into a commercially-oriented corporation. With fortunes rising in the localtelecom sector, the government hoped to make privatization of the company a landmark deal forbroader reform of the economy. A successful deal would demonstrate the governments increasingsupport for market capitalism and, it was hoped to, boost anemic levels of direct foreigninvestment.PTCL and the government were contemplating different strategic options for restructuring. Planswere vetted for both a geographic and functional split of operations. Analysts believed the mostlikely scenario is a break-up into three new companies, tracking with the firms largest businessunits: local, long distance and mobile. This approach mirrors the policy environment fashionedfor new competitive entrants. From the government perspective, breaking up PTCL prior to asell-off will help curtail the market power of any one single service provider, thereby stimulatingcompetition.Unbundling the sale was also likely to increase revenues for the government. The risk, of course,was that the mobile company, PTML (branded as ³Ufone´), was disproportionately moreattractive than the other businesses. According to AKD Securities, PTMLs contribution toPTCLs total revenues was expected to rise to 12.5% over the next five years í and was assumedto contribute 39% of PTCLs overall revenue growth. Future growth of mobile, both in terms ofsubscribers and net revenues, was considered to almost certainly outstrip demand for fixed lineservices. The target was to sell up to a 26 percent stake in PTCL; the government held 88 percentof $2.6 billion, and then any lowering of bid price in the revised agreement approved by thecabinet in March. The official documents state that the accumulated bidding price in the revisedbid came down to $2.205 billion against the original Etisalat bid of $2.599 billion, said a report inthe Gulf Today.The PTCl privatization agreement with Etisalat allegedly inflicted a further loss of billions ofrupees to the national exchequer besides unprecedented concessions offered in the long term, Page | 16University of Sargodha
  17. 17. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLindirect conflict with Article 30 of the Public Procurement Rules 2004, it said. By far, thePTCLhas been the highest profit earning state-owned company with real-estate assets worthbillions ofrupees across the country including commercial plazas, residential colonies andexchanges. According to the government documents, the Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) of thePTCLwith Etisalat lapsed in September 2005 after the non-payment of the dues by the winnerbidders. After further negotiations with the Etisalat management, the government agreed toadditional concessions and modifications to the transaction structure offer VISIONTo be the leading Information and Communication Technology Service Provider in the region by achieving customer satisfaction and maximizing shareholders value. The future is unfolding around us. In times to come, we will be the link that allows global communication. We are striving towards mobilizing the world for the future.

  55. 55. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLwas difficult for me to identify the problem. But nothing is perfect in this world there is always aroom for improvement. According to my limited knowledge following were the problems andchallenges that can directly affect the efficiency and performance of the bank or in other wordsimprovement need be made in the following areas:  There is a lack of balance in incentives given to old and new employees. New employees are paid more which de- motivates the old ones.  Lack of proper computer skills in old employees is another problem.  System problems do arise at times and customers have to wait for the system to work properly.  Some employees misuse the resources of the company.  Employees were not very effective in communication among themselves. They didn’t share the experience with each other and didn’t care about the other employees. Some employees lacked the trust in management.  Ineffective public dealing was another major problem which I experienced during my internship. y Regularity and punctuality shows the character of big and good executives. But this problem is also faced by the overconfident employees.Financial Analysis Page | 55University of Sargodha

  73. 73. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCL With employee strength of 30,000 and 5.7 million customers, PTCL is the largesttelecommunications provider in Pakistan. PTCL also continues to be the largest CDMA operatorin the country with 0.8 million V-fone customers. The company maintains a leading position in Pakistan as an infrastructure provider toother telecom operators and corporate customers of the country. It has the potential to be aninstrumental agent in Pakistan’s economic growth. PTCL has laid an Optical Fibre Access Network in the major metropolitan centres ofPakistan and local loop services have started to be modernized and upgraded from copper to anoptical network On the Long Distance and International infrastructure side, the capacity of two SEA-ME-WE submarine cable is being expanded to meet the increasing demand of International traffic. Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation (PTC) has established in December 1990,taking over operations and functions from Pakistan Telephone and Telegraph Department underPakistan Telecommunication Corporation Act 1991. This coincided with the Governments competitive policy, encouraging private sectorparticipation and resulting in award of licenses for cellular, card-operated payphones, paging and,lately, data communication services. In 1994, the PTC becomes the company limited (Pakistan Telecommunication CompanyLimited) by issued six million vouchers exchangeable into 600 million shares of the PTCL in twoseparate placements. Each had a par value of Rs. 10 per share. These vouchers were convertedinto PTCL shares in mid-1996. In 1995, Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Ordinance formed the basis forPTCL monopoly over basic telecommunication sector in the country. It also paved the way for Page | 73University of Sargodha
  74. 74. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLthe establishment of an independent regulatory regime. The provisions of the Ordinance were lentpermanence in October 1996 through Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Act. The year 2006-07 in the telecom sector was marked by the phenomenal growth in themobile sector in Pakistan, which doubled its subscriber base to 60 million. The teledensityincreased from 26% to 40%, helping to spread the benefits of communication technology acrossthe country. PTCL ’s mobile mobile phone subsidiary Ufone’s subscriber base grew by more than87%, from 7.49 million to 14 million. The year also witnessed the entry of major telecomcompanies, most notably China Telecom and Singtel, into market. The privatization of the company was completed in the FY06, following the purchaser of26% ‘B’ class ordinary shares by Etisalat International Pakistan L.L.C. EIP took over management control on 12th on April 2006. No doubt P.T.C.L having the monopoly in providing the Land-Line TelephoneConnection in Pakistan and its playing its role magnificently. In current scenario P.T.C.L hasincreases its Revenue quite dramatically and probably that as soon as this organization hasbecome privatized it will flourish its revenue in better manner. PTCL should immediately change its Finance upper level of hierarchy and should streamline in the good manner. PTCL should also encourage the Billing On line system that each and every customershould have to pay his/her bill on line basis. The system of E-PAYMENT which although exist in PTCL finance system but there isneed of improvement this facility. The image of PTCL being leading Telecom Providing is not good in the eyes of commoncustomer especially there are lot of complaints about the including the bogus local calls in the Page | 74University of Sargodha
  75. 75. INTERNSHIP REPORT ON PTCLmonthly bills of various customers. PTCL should also provide the detail of local calls made fromany Land Line Number which would be provided in Micro level to the customer. Faulty Telephone connection should be Fault Free within 24 hours in order to maximizethe Revenue, as Revenue of PTCL should sacrifice at the cost of Faulty Telephone. PTCL should make Customer Care Centers in remote areas If I have to express my experience of internship in PTCL I would briefly say: PTCL is a good Organization in the way that anybody can join it for his/ her long-termcareer. Overall working environment is comfortable. Management of branch cares a lot of itsemployees and considers them as the Asset of PTCL. Behavior of senior executive of bank isvery polite and they are caring about the individual’s career and their growth. PTCL needs innovative service offerings — currently it doesn’t even offer bundles or asingle bill. Has been unclear about its IPTV and WiMAX plan and strategy (trials are in progress)Overall PTCL still behaves as a monopoly … it has to change its attitude. At a minimum,avoiding billing errors and providing competent and courteous service to its customers is essentialif PTCL wants to show that it is transforming itself to a competitive company which cares for itscustomers. It is said that the best assets of a company go home to their family in the evening. Can theculture of PTCL be changed to a performance and service-based organization? According to thelatest director’s report from PTCL the “organization is being revamped”. Only time can tell theimpact. However management is very demanding about the targets but good reward at theachievement of assigned targets is awarded. Page | 75University of Sargodha

All the customers are asked to fill a suggestion form and thestandards of the org are improved through them. Prioritizing its product portfolio in line with its corporate and consumer needs and wantsthe org are committed to develop products that give more value to its customers in both thesectors. In PTCL, all the work is done on computers. All the entries are made in computer.Balance is fed into the computer. This increases efficiency of the org. During my internship training I gathered information regarding how a successful orgoperational aspect decorticated with the practical. I found my internship training at PTCL to be a very rewarding experience. The trainingwas beneficial because it helpful me to aware a real life working environment. So far my learning is concerned; all the employees at branch were quite cooperative. Theyhelped me to understand the activities of a org to possible extent. Their good attitude gave memore confidence to learn more and to ask if I have any query in my mind. Besides there evergoing activities they never get irritant by my questioning. I had made an honest efferent to presentthe working & operation of PTCL in simplest way. Page | 76University of Sargodha
