Modern age is the age of science and technology (ICT) . It has brought a revolutionary changes in the life of the people of the present world .

Digital Bangladesh means a technology based country where all information will be available online and where all possible activities of the garments and other non government organization will be performed by means of technology .
Bangladesh is a small country with a huge population . She is burdened with many problems like over population , poverty , unemployment , food shortage , corruption , power crisis , natural calamities , lack of natural resources etc. All these factors are barriers to make Bangladesh a digital one we have to remove all these problems and obstacles to establish technology based e-governance ,e-education,e-commerce , e-production ,e-agriculture , etc.
To make Bangladesh into a digital country , we can apply digital system in the following sector :
Election : There is lack of morality in most of our people . People have no faith in the leaders . So to ensure free and fair election , it is necessary to introduce e-voting and setting up CCTV camera in the vote centre .
Education is the backbone of nation . No nation can prosper without education . Our leaders can get quality education if digital system in introduced in the field of education . Multi-media class is greatly helpful to the students . If teachers lectures are displayed on the screens , students can easily follow them by listening to the lecture and watching on screen .
Medical : Medical facility is one of the basic needs of human beings . If digital system is applied in the field of medical , patients can make appointments to see the doctor . Even they can pay feees through online and can get medical prescription without appearing before the doctor.
Agriculture : Bangladesh is an agricultural country . More than eighty percent people are farmers. They fully depends on agriculture for their livelihood . Even they supply food for the entire population of our country . If digital system is applied in the field of agricultural , our farmers will be able to grow more food and will get proper value of their products.
Digital Bangladesh will ensure the overall development of the country and the nations . It will prevent all types of corruptions and crimes . It will also save people’s time and money .
