Abstract
The growing application of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and
their subsequent use on strengthening interaction among public entities, civil
societies, communities and citizens has given rise to a new governance paradigm
known as e-governance. E-governance came both in developed and developing
countries as a quest of making the public institutions more transparent, accountable,
and efficient for the better delivery of public services. This paper intended to discuss
the prospects and challenges of ICT for improving service delivery in Nepal which
also helps to meet the millennium development goals (MDG goals). The study
concludes that there has been improvement in the application of ICTs, however, still
lacking skill and technical know-how to use ICT for the better delivery of services
which is also in Nepal.
