    Abstract This paper aims to contribute through adapting widely accepted models to ascertain compare and comment on state-level local governments in selected South Asian countries- India, Nepal, and Bhutan. We aim to portray the disparities among the local governments and emphasize the importance of national surveys. The websites that governments host to describe and host various services are a potent source of data. Scrutinizing the state of the websites systematically should therefore help countries to assess, monitor, compare and plan for improvement. UNs’ EGDI survey and LOSI helps to assess and compare the countries in terms of their web presence and helps to ascertain their e-governance maturity levels. However, these indicators do not cater to find the disparities among the local governments of a country. We have adopted the UNs’ e-government model and designed a unique questionnaire to ascertain the disparity. We find that even though the countries have progressed at the national level there are disparities among the local governments. Based on our findings we have formulated some recommendations for the countries to adopt and ensure the gap between the laggers and the leaders reduces.
