Nepal Government is coming with five-year master plan on e-Governance. The High Level Commission for Information Technology (HLCIT) has prepared the final draft of the master plan.
HLCIT has prepared the master plan in collaboration with Korean IT Industry Promotion Agency (KIPA), which would be implemented between 2007 and 2011. e-Kantipur will help create citizen-centric and transparent bureaucratic system, improve productivity of civil servants, enhance national competitiveness and strengthen linkage between government and people and various state organs. The plan considers a roadmap for domestic information and communication sector, which is the first comprehensive document. It is expected that the master plan will bridge the digital divide, create knowledge-based society, boost national income and improve quality of life. In the first phase of the project, all the internal processes of the government would be computerized. In second phase, online systems would be devised to handle request of citizens and in the last phase all processes of the government will be integrated to form a knowledge-based government.
