The construction industry plays a pivotal role in the infrastructure development of a country, thereby improving the quality of life. However, the construction industry is
facing the problem of delays, thus triggering negative effects on project completion. This study endeavors to explore factors leading to delays in the construction projects in Afghanistan. The study employed a relative importance index to evaluate and check the importance level of factors leading to delays. The confirmation of these factors can support the provision of proper policies that reduce the frequency and severity of the factors. The study provides recommendations to help policymakers rectify policies accordingly.
