    Hi Saeed,

    Esri gets a lot of our information from the EPSG Geodetic Parameter Dataset,

    http://www.epsg-registry.org

    They list several LCC-based zones for Pakistan, based on Kalianpur 1880 or Kalianpur 1962. With Kalianpur 1880, India Zones 0, I, and IIa; with Kalianpur 1962, India zones 0 and I. They're found in the Projected Coordinate Systems, National Grids, Indian subcontinent.

    Is that what you're looking for?

    Std. Disclaimer: I'm on the subcommittee that manages the EPSG Geodetic Parameter Dataset.
