    Abstract :

    Nowadays, Information Society policies have been paying a lot of attention in bridging “Digital Divide” in our country. The gap between people from different socio-economic backgrounds with regard to their opportunity and ability to access and make use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is commonly regarded as a potential barrier for participation in the information society. ICT continues to have a significant impact on the life of people and the global economy and also gives rise to a host of important issues. One major unanswered question at the national and international level is whether the use of information technologies leads to increasing digital disparities within and among developing countries. This research will suggest methods for bridging the Digital Divide and address the issues related to it. The research will focus on finding some modern approaches at the national as well as international level to address the issues of digital divide. The research will prepare a model that discusses and recommends possible strategies that can be implemented in developing countries like Nepal to reduce the gap of the Digital Divide.
