I couldn't find anything in Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 that may suggest that no withholding tax shall be deducted from payments made to PTCL for rendering of services.

If PTCL claims so, then ask them legal basis (Section or entry in Second Schedule) for that.

It is possible that they may have exemption certificate. Then they will have to furnish the exemption certificate and then you will not deduct withholding tax
