    Pay your Ptcl EVO bills at MCB Bank branch

    If you remember, PTCL had reduced number of One Stop Shops – resulting limited number of outlets for paying EVO bills, particularly those with post-paid plans and not having PTCL land line numbers installed at their premises.

    At last, PTCL has taken care of this by partnering with Muslim Commercial Bank. Now you can pay your EVO bill at any MCB branch.

    If you get a hard copy of bill – that’s great, otherwise get a print out of email that you receive monthly in your email and get your bill paid.

    You can locate your nearest MCB branch by having a look at this list
