dc.description.abstract The government of Nepal (GoN) has realized the importance of ICT in public sector and embarked on an ambitious five year electronic government master plan (eGMP) in 2006. The master plan was designed three phases for its effective implementation. Eight projects including National Identification (NID) were prioritized by considering its implications and resources. The overall execution was delayed and all projects of first phase have been completed in following years. This study aimed to identify the major challenges while implementing NID card. A qualitative method was adopted. Open ended, semi-structure in-depth interviews were conducted for different groups of respondents to identify the difficulties at their level. A group of experts was interviewed to know the overall status of eGov projects and collect their recommendations for the improvements. It is found that; still, Nepal is in an early stage of eGov development. Lack of appropriate policies, acts, regulatory frameworks, technical infrastructure, political instability, project design gap and low awareness of use of ICT among government officials and citizen were identified as the major barriers. In addition, frequent transfers of officers and unclear responsibilities of departments lead to poor coordination in public administration. en_US
