Some key government agencies in Bangladesh have denied cooperating with government in updating their respective websites on a regular basis and its entry into the era of e-Governance.
The government organs include Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS), National Board of Revenue (NBR), Economic Relations Division (ERD), Energy and Mineral Resources Division (EMRD), Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) and the Forest Department, which are neither maintaining nor updating their websites regularly. The Prime Minister's Office (PMO), that earlier had directed the ministries and their organs to launch websites and update those on a regular basis with latest data, has once again asked them to comply with the directive. It issued the latest directive in this connection on July 19, saying that many ministries and their organs were not offering the latest information and data, which has been preventing the government from reaping the benefit of e-Governance. The PMO office also directed all to update their websites within 15 days. Though more than one month has already elapsed by after the latest directive, the key organs under some ministries have been found providing backdated information and data.
