Hi I am wondering I cannot find any address for Pakistan to contact for queries. So I write this question in the hope to find answer to it.

Question: How often the map is updated? Because, for my region in Pakistan the map seems to be years old and never updated. There has been a lot of changes in the past few years and it is difficult to locate different places now. Today, I added several locations but I wondered when I noticed that the satellite layer still showed the old map.

I hope someone will answer the question and also the responsible/focal person will update different layers of the map for Pakistan.

Which map do you mean? Could you give the URL and possibly screenshot?

Here is a standard, general map, which is updated in minutes on z13+ and 1-2 times a month for the z0-12:

but there are multiple maps created using OSM data, which is the only common thing between them.

It looks like being rendered on standard map:

Looking at the tags here, not everything is an office. Objects like school, hospital or police station should be tagged in a different way - please look at this list:
