The timely completion of projects in key sectors is crucial for sustainable development. It ensures effective resource use, economic feasibility, and societal well-being. This process involves not only meeting deadlines and budgets but also upholding promises and achieving shared goals for progress and prosperity.

For project owners, completing projects on time builds credibility and earns trust among investors, stakeholders, and customers. It reduces legal risks tied to contract breaches and penalties for delays. Moreover, it enables early revenue generation, accelerating returns on investment, fostering business growth, and allowing for the reallocation of capital to new ventures.

At the national level, timely project completion supports economic growth by creating jobs, attracting both domestic and foreign investments, and improving infrastructure. It enhances public welfare by providing crucial services like electricity, transportation, and healthcare. Additionally, it creates a favourable business environment, which attracts further project investment.

This study explores trends in project completion over the past 20 years, from FY2005 to FY2024, divided into two decades: Decade-1 (FY2005 to FY2014) and Decade-2 (FY2015 to FY2024). Both decades encountered economic disruptions affecting project execution. Decade-1 was impacted by the 2008 global financial crisis, while Decade-2 faced COVID-19-related lockdowns.
