The authors tried to examine the impact of Bangladesh's E-Government on Bangladesh's property markets and determine the potential consequences or repercussions. Finally, this research gives some recommendations based on the study survey, such as Online connectivity from the city to the village level is critical for gaining internet knowledge and engaging in E-Governance activities. No one can use the government online portal for personal activities if they do not have access to the internet. In Bangladesh, it is difficult for the government to deliver internet access to rural areas promptly. As a result, the government should promote private enterprises to offer low-cost internet access to the people so that the peasants may access the internet. Government should take care of that.
