In this century, e-government is drawing significant attention especially in administration and business and in other service organizations. This paper attempts to clarify the terms e-government, e-governance and bureaucratic government. It also pays the attention to establish the relationship between e-government and bureaucratic government, contrasts them and tries to clearly picturize each other. Both E-government and e-governance are based on ICTs whereas bureaucracy’s base concerns traditional pen-paper and hard-and-fast rigid rules and regulations. The authors finally found e-government more effective, efficient, and mature and time oriented. On the other hand, bureaucratic form takes care of inflexible constitution and it is afraid of change with time. However, the modified e-bureaucratic form was found to be better than ordinary bureaucratic one to replace its former version. This paper also searches for frameworks and adoption of e-government in this present time. Although e-government engulfs huge money in its initial stage for installation, it gives birth of huge benefits as compared to those from bureaucratic one in the long run.
