Situated at a distance of 90 kms from Srinagar, Kupwara, a Kashmir Valley frontier district, has lush forests and a diverse wildlife. This makes it important for tourism and wildlife. The NIC centre established E-Government in 1996. In 2004, community information centres were established in each Kupwara block, bringing e-governance to the rural masses. E-Government is the process of modernising traditional governance to better serve citizens and run government using ICT applications. Digital governance, leadership, delivery, investment, and transparency are all new concepts. Good governance requires e- Governance. A wide range of organisations around the world are implementing egovernance initiatives to better serve their constituents. Changing with the times, the District Kupwara administration has implemented e-government in various departments for better and faster delivery of goods and services to their citizens. The goal of egovernance is to improve governance. The present aim of the study is to investigate the role of administration of district Kupwara for implementing e- governance for residents and its level of awareness and challenges among the citizens of Kupwara district.
