In this paper, we have formulated Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) models to reduce the inputs in an inefficient Decision Making Unit (DMU) when the specific inputs are under the constant sum constraint. We have also extended the models to reallocate the excess input without any reduction in efficiency of other DMUs. These DEA models and methods developed in this work will help decision makers in developing an optimal strategy to transfer excess input to other DMUs. Theoretical results have been illustrated with the help of a case study. © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2014.
