This may create space for more democratic and creative expansion, or indeed, have the reverse effect; depending on the relative economic, social and political power specific internet groups can harness to champion their grievances. Under this backdrop, the present paper examines the Diffusion of ICT in selected Asian countries during the digital era. Diffusion and in Asian countries, reveals that there is lot of effective efforts needed complete utilization of ICT for socio economic development. There is one major thing is to conclude that still there is lack of cooperation among the neighbourhood countries. It will adversely impact on the development of the ICT to encounter problems like poverty, illiteracy, health problems and so on.
