Technology development is a key factor to build a prosperous nation in the 21st century. If we consider the strategies of developed nations, they allocate between 10 to 50% of the total budget on technology and innovation, as a result, over 200 million high paying tech jobs have been created globally in the past two decades. If we look at the budget of Nepal, only 1.4% ($144 million out of 14 billion) is allocated for Education, Science and technology which is adequate progress in building a better country.
The difference between developed and underdeveloped nation is systemization of technology. It helps to create millions of jobs in different areas.
The budget of Nepal 2078 has not given us any leeway to create opportunities on technology. In order to improve, IT education in Nepal must be specialization based where broader areas of technology should be covered at school and college level. IT Teachers must be highly paid to deliver the quality of education for students. The current situation of IT education is in favor of providing poor knowledge on technology.
