This paper attempts to highlight the challenges and benefits of E-governance in the education sector of Pakistan during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this context, the framework of e-governance is significant which means the delivery of government services and information to the public using electronic means. Quantitative methodology along with descriptive and analytical style is employed to justify the topic. E-education in Pakistan faced policy-based, infrastructural, and socio-economic challenges which came into the limelight during COVID19.
