Articles, 2013, vol. 40, issue 1

Abstract: This paper analyzes the performance of Pakistan Railway in a multistage framework.Following Charnes et al (1978) and Yua and Lin (2008), Data Envelopment Analysis is used to estimate product, earning and financial efficiency to understand the decline in Pakistan Railway in comparison with Chinese and Indian railways, all being public sector entities. Pakistan Railway is product inefficient in the usage of inputs that leads to financial inefficiency as costs unrelated to service delivery rise. Chinese railway is product and financial efficient, which is leading to earning efficiency. Indian railway is product efficient but is struggling with earning and financial efficiency. The conclusion is that product efficiency leads to other efficiencies and railway development can be sustained by managerial autonomy and steady public investment.
