Dear Sir I believe on you. You have a great potential to make change in Nepali Gov officer's attitude becoming youself a role model. We are offered number of fellowships by different organisations, i.e. ABU, ITU, IPU,APT,AIBD,WB, ADB,Embassies, UN etc. This is in fact great donation to this country. Few officers in MOIC made it for their family bussiness. They fly to those countries where their childrens study or relatives lives no matter what is the course of the training or the meeting, workshop, conference etc. This is Just westage. Country will not get anything out of these people. You are there in The Priminister's office please make this arrangement from there only. Direct all the aids to your office and transperantly distribute to all related officers so that country could get something out of it.

Pranita jee Ministry of Information and Communication will shortly constitute a task force to draft bill on Right to privacy. In my mind right to privacy should have come together with right to information. This time government is preparing some directive guidelines for CCTV regulation since enactment takes long time. Once we finalize the directive for the purpose of regulating the installation and use CCTV camera, with rights and duties of the users and commoners we will make it public. leela

CCTV Guidelline and Right to Privacy
Content
Dear Lilamani jee, Thanks for your response regrading CCTV Guideline. I am happy that your office is doing something on this matter. However, CCTV is a just a tip of the iceberg and when we hit this many things get involve. As you know this is closely related with right to privacy and there is no specific law on right to privacy despite the fact that Constitution of Kingdom of Nepal 1990 and Interim Constitution of Nepal 2007 constitutionally guaranteed this right as a fundamental right under Article 22 and Article 28 respectively. As far as i know there was some effort made in the past to draft a bill on right to privacy. The task-force headed by Mr. Kashiraj Dahal (which drafted the bill on right to information and subsequently amendment in the Working Journalist Act) was mandated to draft a bill on right to privacy. I dont know whether the task force submitted its report to the Government or not. As the CCTV regulation comes under the right to privacy act, can we harmonize the process and push for both at the same time?? I mean, enacting a right to privacy law and making a regulation in harmony with that law. Hope to hear your response. Best, Pranita

Please allow me to ask apology for taking time to address this subject. Responsible government department, the Ministry of Home Affairs, being preoccupied on many more important issues of law and order this matter could not remain on the top priority. However we have a copy of the draft regulation of CCTV. We also had a discussion on this matter just today. The draft received from Ministry of Home was not sufficient enough to cover the regulatory regime including access on CCTV information, usage and right to privacy. Therefore, we reverted back the proposal to the Ministry of home again to prepare a complete regulatory frame and submit in to the cabinet for approval within a month

Dear Lilamani jee, It is very good practice to post the decision of the cabinet in the website of ministry of information and communication. It has always been my pride to state this example in a number of international forums as effective best-practice to let people aware what the government is doing. I would like to know whether there exists any guideline/order/rule for the positing cabinet decision in the MOIC website. I mean, was any decision made to initiate such practice?? or is it just an initiative under discretionary power? Hope to get your response soon. Regards, Santosh Sigdel

Dear Santosh jee thank you for your interest and suggestions. I have immediately asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to arrange for hosting website of the Nepalese embassy in Canada and as I was told that instruction is already communicated to Ottawa in writing. Please find below the address of Nepalese embassy in Canada as posted in the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at www.mofa.gov.np Ottawa, Embassy of Nepal 408, Queen Street Ottawa, ON K1R 5A7 Canada Tel: 001-613-680-5513, 680-5623 Fax: 001-613-422-5149 Email: nepalemb@rogers.com Regarding the website audit that is not a part of the project you have mentioned but an initiative we have taken on our own. Now a directive is in final stage to the government offices as a mandatory instruction for standardization of official websites at least at the central level for the first time. Once it is finalized it will be available on demand. ICT development project is in the incipient phase of its implementation. It has programs in eight different government organizations. Programs are as follows: Biometric national ID, integrated land information system, e-processing of driving license, e-submission of application for Public service vacancies, establishment of 114 tele-centers, rural e-connectivity, government enterprise architecture and strengthening HRD institutions. This project does not cover all the requirements of national ID and the land info system. However we will try to cover as much as possible from this project and will continuously seek fund for remaining portion of the job. PMO is coordinating those activities and eight different organizations are implementing respective programs. If you can visit our office we are ready to give you detail of the project otherwise you can ask specific questions about the project that I will try to satisfy you.

Website/Information regarding Embassy
Content
Dear Lilamani jee, I am writing you in reference to the contact details of the Nepalese Embassy abroad and specially embassy in Canada. In the earlier dialogue with Akriti, we agreed the importance of ICT/Website and the role it plays for the good governance and transparency. I was looking for the contact details of the Canadian embassy and the it is very frustrating that the neither the website of foreign ministry page on foreign mission of Nepal (http://mofa.gov.np/missions.php?type=nepalese) nor the website of nepalese embassy in canada (http://canada.mofa.gov.np) contains any details or information regarding the whereabouts of the nepalese embassy in Canada. The latter website is in pathetic condition, having zero content. I believe you understand how important is it for the Nepalese people living in canada and other nepalese about the address and way to contact nepalese embassy there. Even the 'contact us' page of the website doesnt have any information. Similarly, after we open embassy there, the MOFA website had to update those information. I hope to get your response and action on this problem. With Regards, Santosh Sigdel

E-gov/ICT/Website Auditing
Content
Dear Lilamani jee, I was going through the dialogue between you and Akritee jee. It was exciting to know that there is ADB supported project on E-Gov, which include website audit. Similarly, it was encouraging that you were inviting citizenry to keep an eye on the ongoing process so that it yields projected outcome. Thank you for the incorporating 'participation' factor in the government program and project. We are very much interested in this ongoing task and want to see what is happening and want to contribute to the process. In this regard, we want to see what is ongoing. We want to have a look at the policy and program paper about it. Could you please let me know who to obtain those information, documents? Can you make arrangement that i get copies of those and other related documents?? Hope to get your response soon. With Regards, Santosh Sigdel

I am very glad to have response from you. But one thing is very important that you should be aware of "so called ICT Specialist" in Nepal for the implementation of e-Gov project. The second concern about the website update. As you mention that you are on the process of Auditing the website, i apreaciate it but it is urgent necessity to update the website in time which can be done by the hard direction to the government agencies it is possible because there are IT related personnel in each organisation.

ICT and website
Content
Dear Aakriti jee, You are correct that the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (OPMCM) is launching a ICT Development project. The main objective of this project is to introduce IT in the governance system. The project has eight different components, which will be implemented by eight different government organizations. The OPMCM is responsible for the management and coordination part of the project and we are committed to make this project a success. Project is delayed a year or so because of some lapses in design and differences over certain matters between ADB and government of Nepal. We resolved the differences after long and arduous negotiations with ADB. Now project is on move. Regarding your query about the websites of government ministers, we are working on website auditing. Moreover, we are also preparing some guidelines about the types of information, frequency of updates, home page of the websites of the Ministries and adequacy of the information in the website. On the basis of audit report and based on guidelines, we will ask all the ministries to update their websites accordingly. Please keep eyes on implementation of ICT project so that any unnecessary delays and mismanagement can be avoided in advance. Thank you leela

I am heard very much about you and I think you are not as the traditional bureaucrat and now you are in PM Office which is launching the e-gov project supported by ADB but there is doubt that this project will be success because our mechanism is so lazy that must of the information in gov website are old and out-dated. So respected sir, Nepal is in the Informative stage of e-government.We can improve ourselves by mentaining the current status, if we are not able to do these thing, all are efforts are only talk, talk and talk. I am very much interested for your response and action as well because I realy trust you.

In fact there is no such specific regulations about installation and usage of CCTV informationexcept a vague provision of acquiring information by securityagencies for security pusposes. PMO has instructed the Ministry of Home Affairs to come up with guidelines first. I was waiting that guidelines to inform you. However it may take few more days to receive. guidelines.
