Thimphu, April 28, 2009: To promote e-governance, the Department of Information and Technology announced its plan to connect all government offices under common network to integrate the works of public administration.

The online system will link all departments and agency to its umbrella ministry such as every police station in the country with the Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs.

The government claims, when the project starts this year and completes by end of tenth plan, applicants will get response or get their work done within a single day. 

Jigme Dorji Wangchuk National Referral Hospital (JDWNRH) in Thimphu will keep all records of patient’s medical history in a database that will be available to the relevant doctors.
