A Government Press Release is a short, compelling news story written by public relations professional and sent to targeted members for the purpose of announcing something ostensibly newsworthy. The press release should contain all the essential information like who, what, where, when, how, and why, so that the journalist will easily produce his own story. Government offices of Nepal publish their press releases as per their requirements and necessities.

2. Government Gazette

In Nepal, all the gazette notice has been published at department of printing which reside under Ministry of Science and Technology, SinghaDurbar, Kathmandu, Nepal.

3. Nepal Government Offices Detail Information

Because of not getting clear information about the services provided by the different ministries, departments and offices of Government of Nepal, people faces difficulties and get confused and  are suffering from the problem of not completing government related work in a single day. So, Department of Information Technology (DOIT) is intending to develop a mobile application that provides the detail information of different Ministries, their related Departments and Offices along with the major tasks that they are handling and the list of documents that are required for related task. Mobile application for “Nepal Government Offices Detail Information” ensures the availability of all these government information in the handheld/mobile devices.. 

4. Hospital Information

A hospital is special place where specialized staffs are available for providing treatment to the patients with specialized equipments and medicines. Every person is directly or indirectly linked with the hospital. During emergency it becomes very crucial to know the hospital nearest to that location where the victim is located because every second will be very important for the life and death of victim. Not only that, people often needs to search the nearest hospital according the diseases they are suffering from. By the “Locating Nearest Hospital” mobile application, people of any location within the Nepal will be able to locate any nearby hospital from their location.

5. School/College Information

With the objective to provide detail information of colleges of different faculty with their affiliation from different Universities within Nepal, Department of Information Technology has developed a mobile app related to this subject.
