As we discussed in the concept

NH_3  is a border line ligand which can work as weak field as well  as strong field ligand. With Ni^{2+} , NH_3 work as weak field ligand that's why it is unable to pair the unpaired electrons of Ni^{2+} which results outer orbital complex with paramagnetic character.
