Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in a relatively short period of time of our planet’s history have had a major transformative impact across all strata of society. In the study, four different villages (520 respondents) from four districts of Bangladesh have been selected to find out how ICTs played a catalytic role in dissemination of information, knowledge transfer, healthcare, capacity building and improved governance and the data were collected during December 2011 to February 2012. The study revealed that factors like social security, rural economy, health care facilities, women empowerment, disaster and emergency response etc. are very much reshaped and influenced by ICTs in Bangladesh as identified in other developing countries.
