The aim of the present study is to investigate the efficiency of domestic and foreign commercial
banks of Pakistan over the period from the year 2009 to 2013 through the DEA technique (Data
envelopment analysis). DEA estimates efficiency by the ratio of inputs (multiple) to outputs (multiple). For this
purpose, the number of employees, deposits and fixed assets were used as inputs while Advances and Investments
were taken as the outputs based on the intermediation approach. Two generic forms of DEA explicitly CCR and
BCC were applied to work out technical and pure-technical
efficiencies, respectively. Results offered significant
information to make the decision about the efficiency of
commercial banks. The study outcomes showed that foreign owned banks performed better against public and private owned banks in respect of all the efficiency measures
throughout the period of study.
