Abstract. Across the globe, many spheres of our lives whether it is related to the day to day functioning at the personal level or administration of various governments are transformed with the advent of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). In the present century, indeed, the Information and Communication Technology's convergence has to also accelerate the evolution of diverse services in the contour of e-Initiatives or to be particular e-Governance.Over almost three decades back with the modest commencement of e-Initiatives in various parts of the world, these engineering sciences have inarguably transformed some of the most rudimentary issues that at times trammeled communication and global outreach. In the state of Uttarakhand, many e-Initiatives have been launched to bring development to the state. Indeed, many efforts were taken to bring or to deploy e- Initiatives in the state, but there is a need to do a lot of work in terms of implementation and practical realization of the programs so that better services to the citizens of the state could be delivered.This study would focus on a phased approach towards analyzing and realizing the impacts of e-initiatives taken by the state of Uttarakhand in the Education sector. This work would try to put forward an attempt to ascertain and explain the issues concerning e-initiatives taken in the sector of school education and would present a general review of the present model with a case study of city Roorkee. The computer literacy aspect among the school going children has also been taken up by analyzing their computer operating skills and knowledge. The study would reflect recommendations on the effective implementation of e-Initiatives in the sector of school education in the state so that a better education facility could be availed by the children.
