Despite devolving substantial resources and Prowers to local levels to improve public service delivery, anecdotal evidence suggests that service delivery in Pakistan is still far behind from expectations. This paper aims to examine the impacts and consequences of devolution on public service delivery in District Dera Ismail Khan, KPK, Pakistan. We developed and tested a set of empirical measures to identify the real patterns of public service delivery on one hand and to assess the impacts of factors (both demographic and other) on the delivery of public services on the other. The results indicate many reasons for poor service delivery however, limited transparency and poor monitoring system is the most critical. Furthermore, Data show that poverty is causing many problems including unawareness of masses from their interests and duties at the public level thereby giving free hand to the ruling elite in exploiting public resources for self-interest at the cost of public goods.
