The Ministry has created an ICT Services under Secretariat, in order to strengthen the Information Technology and also for the standardization of software and hardware. At present, all departments/divisions have Internet access through 14 mbps internet leased line. To maintain the pace of computerization and to turn Information Technology into a practical tool for the Ministry’s operations, the ICT Unit is concentrating on Up-grading and strengthening the ICT unit. The Programme aims to link and centralize all the databases in the Ministry and create an ICT master plan for the Ministry. These will be achieved through institutional strengthening of the ICT unit and human capacity building of the ICT staff of the Ministry.
