Objective: An attempt has been made by the author(s) in optimizing the infrastructure delivery by public sector through a rigorous series of questionnaire templates and interviews, in India. Statistical Analysis: Likert scale with five (5) points is used to record and tabulate the data. SPSS is used for statistical analysis of the recorded data and Factor analysis is applied to minimize variables. The experimental result is validated using hypothesis test. Findings: Public sector has various limitations in executing infrastructure projects, from lack of technological skills to financial constraints.The private sector, on the other hand, has been able to execute projects on timely basis without compromising the technology, but at a much higher cost. Though the private sector procurement methods have better efficiency in technology utilization, public sector procurement has greater impact in socio-economic development of the society. Improvements:Further points can be put forwarded such as giving more weightage to citizen’s well-being rather than taking GDP as a decision criterion for a country’s development.
