The variation in the structure is also another geographical identification of Nepal. So Nepal was greatly influenced by the progress of the many countries in the region that had already welcomed the development of information technology ITparticularly the two Asian superpowers, India and China.
Today Nepal is also aware to recognize the importance of the production and use of information and communication technology ICT for competitiveness and growth and the need to incorporate national information infrastructures to sustain and expand their economies.
There is no question why we need to acquire IT in developing country like Nepal; however we need to know that what role IT can play in development process of these countries.
The far reaching impacts of IT are not only limited to industrial production. All economic sectors including agriculture, banking, commerce, health care, education, publishing, transportation are become fast flexible. If properly used in the developing country, IT can be the main factor in increasing productivity in public administration, communications, infrastructures, industry and agriculture.
We have lot of experience for developing country toward the knowledge base society. Since the introduction of computer for census inthe country made an early start compared to the other countries, including the establishment of organizations for computerization.
However, in the s and s, Nepal slowed down its momentum to push forward the advancement of ICT industry. Init promulgated the Electronics Transaction Act and now we have again the new review on IT policy and proposed the IT Policy as a measure of procedural simplification with a view to creating a hassle-free climate for the development of knowledge based Society and eliminate the poverty from Nepal.
We feel that this policy is a significant and important step in the right direction towards the developing the ICT sector and represent the society as knowledge based society. Due to the lack of political constancy deterred Nepal from effectively capitalizing on the promise Unleashed by digital opportunities as the country found itself confronting a host of competing priorities ranging from the ones posed by security challenges to that of endemic poverty and poor governance.

The broad objective for the IT sector was to promote IT as a tool for social and economic development; to promote social development by using IT to improve agricultural, health, education, and other services and sectors; to promote economic development by establishing an IT park to produce and export low-cost software and eliminate the poverty from country which is the one of major problem for Nepal.
Although the institutional provisions have been put in place, the key implementing body is too under-resourced to effectively oversee implementation. We also know that e-governance in Nepal is enhancing but still not fully developed.
But we can assume this process of finalizing the IT policy was a long but inclusive one. Today we have still many problems. Political and Social Instability, Funding depend upon highly politicized and very limited facility is provided by government which is not enough and it is not fully utilized are problem in past years.
So from learning the lesson from previous chapter of implementing and developing IT Policies we have to address every aspect that reflect IT Sectors. An IT Bill outlining action plans for the sector has been drafted and is awaiting Parliamentary approval.
The Ministry is planning to establish two new institutes: At last the future directions can be viewed as although the institutional provisions have been put in place, the key implementing body HLCIT, NITC and Ministry of Science and Technology is too under-resourced to effectively oversee implementation.
An implementation programme involving both the government and private sector still needs to be encouraged and supported to maximize the potential for IT in Nepal.Nepal's National Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Policy, This ICT Policy was announced on August Ministry of Information and.
