PTCL shifts numbers from 7 to 8 digit series


You will hear this announcement starting from october
“Your desired number has been changed. Please dial 3 before your desired number”
whenever you dial landline number of Karachi with old dialing code (021).

As per the instructions of PTA, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL) would shift its fixed line numbering plan from 7 to 8 digit series. Initially migration from 7 series to 8 digit series would take place in Lahore and Karachi.

As per details, Digit “3” will be added in all existing 7 digits numbers of Karachi and Lahore except the numbers starting from “9”. Digit “9” will be added in all existing numbers starting from “9”. An important point to remember is the numbers are being added to existing numbers not area codes, with the exemption of army exchanges which would remain same.
