Some 484 websites of different ministries, departments and directorates of the government have gone down following glitches in their servers.
Sources at the Access to Information (a2i) programme which looks after the websites said those, including that of the Prime Minister’s Office, Cabinet Division and the Public Administration Ministry, went down following an increase in visitors and uploading of contents.
However, the problem of the websites of the PMO, Cabinet Division, Public Administration Ministry and some other sensitive organisations was resolved with quick efforts of the a2i officials.
The rest will return to normalcy within two days, said the sources.
M Abdul Mannan, project director of the a2i programme, said many websites were not available due to the expansion of servers. “Our officials are working to fix those. The sites will return to the previous condition within a short time.”
