Technology is considered as most dynamic aspect of our life, it affects our living standards, way of living and how we are interacting and proacting, thus we can say that its vital rather than important…. The technological development indeed has transformed the rigid government policies and strategies toward e-government, were as to become more dynamic, responsive, accessible, effective and provided in more efficient matter. The e-government is considered as a main instrument and medium to improve and enable access of various stakeholders including citizens to a wide variety of services, which is in role will improve and enrich the effective usability of information and communication technology (ICT) tools to provide better, improved, advanced, transparent, and reliable sources of services to the macro level of society. Accordingly, the government plans and initiatives shall be available to the public through e-government portals with improved accessibility and high level of security and privacy. Many of developed countries have integrated but up to a certain limit the e-government models whereas other still under development phase and continuous improvements. Nevertheless, along with the recognized and desired benefits and synergies that e-Government may provide to governments, stakeholders and the societies on macro level, it still faces many obstacles and challenges. Therefore, there are always several critical success factors and risks associated with e-Government that we will try to address.
