masood | 5 years ago | Reply It is not understood as to why NTS (a sub department of Comsats) has been transformed into a private limited company thus making it liable for tax payments against the huge profit it is making. Had it remained to operate under the domain of educational institution the huge funds would have been easily diverted for uplifting the much needed educational standards in the country. Making NTS a private limited company is a surprising decision by the high ups of Comsats and it might be because of some vested interest to have an autonomous body under his control.
