Concept analysis technique is used for discussion and conclusion. After allresearch, researchers came to know that HEC policies have a negative effect on university autonomy because according to HEC policies they want more research work in a less time which depressed the lecturers and they create a bad research work. Working conditions also have a bad impact on research work because lecturers are unable to do their work attentively. So, if the workload increases lecturers are unable to do their work properly. Incentives and bonuses play a motivational role to motivate lecturers to work well. Based on the results of thisstudy, researchers suggest to universities that they give the autonomy to their lecturers, so they  work with full devotion. And separate the teaching and research work and give the lecturers a good working environment.
