What are the odds of Oddcoll successfully retrieving my claim in Pakistan?
Drawing from our historical data, we’ve been able to reclaim around 80% of our claims in Pakistan. However, the success rate can fluctuate based on several factors, such as the debtor’s financial capacity, the explicitness of payment obligations, and the age of the debt. Generally, escalating a case to debt collection at an early stage enhances the chances of success.
How much time does the debt collection process usually consume in Pakistan?
Offering a precise timeframe is challenging as every case is unique. Some cases can be resolved quickly if the debtor simply overlooked the payment, while others might necessitate more persuasion and pressure and may take a longer time. Nevertheless, we strive to expedite the case as much as possible since our payment is contingent upon successful recovery. It benefits all parties to reclaim the full claim as promptly as possible. Rest assured, we will dedicate ourselves to resolving your case as efficiently as possible.

Our primary requirement is the unpaid invoice that you’ve issued. If there are other documents, like a signed contract or proof of delivery, these can be uploaded as well. If additional documentation is necessary at any point, our debt collection expert will request it. It would also be beneficial if you could provide any contact details of the debtor, along with a summary of previous communications with them (if any), as it can aid the process.

Judicial debt collection in Pakistan.
The Pakistani legal system builds on the legal tradition of the common-law system that was incorporated by the British colonial power. When the country became independent in 1947, it was considered easier and better to build on the existing legal system rather than start from scratch by developing its own legal system. In some areas, however, the Pakistani system has developed in a different direction from the British.
In addition, Islam has had some influence on the development of the Pakistani legal system since 1947. Parts of Islamic Sharia law have been incorporated into Pakistani law and a Federal Sharia Court (FSC) has been established. The court examines whether a law or legal provision is contrary to the injunctions of Islam. If it finds that it does, steps are taken to amend the law so that it conforms to Islam. In addition, the Court has exclusive jurisdiction to hear appeals against certain criminal judgments.
Pakistan’s judiciary is a hierarchical system with two classes of courts:
The superior (or higher) judiciary:
– Supreme Court of Pakistan
– High Courts of Pakistan
– Shariat Court
The subordinate (or lower) judiciary:
– Civil Courts – första instans civilrättsliga fall.
– Criminal Courts
– Special Courts and Tribunals
The Supreme Court and High Courts are established under the Constitution. The other courts are established by Acts of Parliament or by Acts of Provincial Assemblies.
The higher judiciary consists of the Supreme Court of Pakistan as well as the Federal Shariat Court and the five High Courts. There is a High Court in each of Pakistan’s four provinces and a High Court for the Islamabad Capital Territory. According to the Constitution of Pakistan, the mission of the higher judiciary is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.
The subordinate judiciary consists of district courts for civil and criminal matters. In addition, there are a number of specialised courts dealing with specific legal issues such as banking, insurance, customs and excise duties and more.
Where do I turn with my Pakistani case for debt recovery?
As mentioned, Pakistan has four provinces. The provinces are divided into districts. Each district has a district court which has jurisdiction to hear the majority of civil cases brought to court (debt collection cases against private subjects in Pakistan). Under the district court there are courts for civil judges. The civil judges work under the supervision and control of the district judge and all cases of civil nature originate from these courts.
Judgments from a civil judge can be appealed to district judges and decisions from a district judge can in turn be appealed to the High Courts.
