Note for Nepal ICT Research: Refer to such policies as “Information Technology” or “IT” policies as the titles of most Nepalese ICT documents leave out the word “Communication”. Also, authorship and ownership of policies, regulations, and guidelines are tricky to find, so pay attention to the different government departments and offices that the policies come out of.
