lantam is in the ptlan group.

I think it should be the other way around.

ptlan and nttam should both be in the lantam group.
Code:
adduser ptlan lantam
adduser nttam lantam

Sorry, I think my first response was wrong, I'm not used to the groups command.

The users in the lantam group probably can't write to the directory that the file is in.

Make the directory 775 with the group lantam.

drwxrwxr-x 2 nttam lantam 4096 Oct 12 14:54 sscs: This is permission for the directory. I am stuck with problem solving.

I would say that it is probably going to be an issue with the permissions on the share, rather than the filesystem. Try checking the share definition in smb.conf..
