E-Governance Responsiveness in Primary Local Levels of Developing Countries: Study of South Asian Countries' 1st Level Administrative Units

Saima Khan | Moinul Zaber

Abstract: E-governance is an essential tool for ensuring good governance and progress. A robust web presence of the institutions is a cornerstone of e-governance responsiveness. UN EGDI?s Biannual survey tries to ascertain the progress of the countries based on samples from each country. It does not present the detail view of the online governments at all level. To present the scenario clearly, this paper tries to survey the primary local governments (1st level administrative units) of all the countries in South Asia. We have surveyed the websites of the first-level administrative units of all eight South Asian countries. Preliminary study reveals the overall performance including the deficiencies in the online presence of e-services offered by these websites. The results of our evaluation will facilitate the government in identifying and addressing specific deficiencies within their local governance, thereby contributing to enhance overall effectiveness.
