The first cyber law in Nepal was the Electronic Transactions Act, of 2008, which was introduced to address cyber crimes under the country’s criminal code before the law came into force. This act was a significant step in dealing with cyber crimes and provided provisions for offenses relating to computers. Since then, Nepal has been working on further developing its legal framework to address the emerging challenges in cyberspace. The country has been in the process of drafting new cybercrime legislation to address the current gaps in cybercrime laws. The Electronic Transactions Act, of 2008, remains a fundamental law in cybercrime-related matters in Nepal, and the government has been working on developing relevant policies and laws to strengthen cybersecurity in the country.
