Welcome to Information Technology Board

For Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) the rise of Information Technology is an opportunity to overcome historical disabilities and become the master of one own destiny. IT is a tool that will enable AJ&K to achieve the Vision 2025 of GoAJK to become a skilled, prosperous and self-confident state. In doing so, IT promises to compress the time it would otherwise take for AJ&K to advance rapidly in the march of development and occupy a position of honor and pride in the community of under developed territories.
