E-Commerce Working Group headed by Dr. Irfan Hyder was established by Dr Ata Ur Rahman, Minister of Science and Technology to finalize the recommendations for the E-Commerce Action Plan to be included in the National IT Policy. This was a group of professionals and functionaries belonging to stakeholder organizations.
