The public service delivery in Pakistan is seriously hampered by the abysmal performance of the civil services. The government, under the project named ‘Uraan’ initiated the long awaited process of reforming the civil services of Pakistan, to uplift the public sector and performance of the civil servants. There have been several futile attempts in the past to ameliorate the condition and performance however this time the Prime Minister is taking a personal interest which does give one hope that something will be done. What will be done and will it be positive or an improvement remains for time to reveal.
