Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our educational system has slowly been adapting to e-learning. To help students with this transition, the Government of Nepal (GoN) introduced its e-learning portal called “Sikai Chautari” with a school-level curriculum. And it’s now expanding to cover the curriculums of classes 11 and 12 as well. In this post, we will be discussing the Sikai Chautari e-learning portal in more detail.
Sikai Chautari: e-learning portal by GoN
Sikai Chautari was developed by the Centre for Education and Human Resources Development (CEHRD), which falls under the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology. In its initial stage, you could only access learning resources for up to class 10. With the latest update, Sikai Chautari also includes English, Nepali, and Social Studies curriculums of grades 11 and 12.
To note, these three are the only compulsory subjects under the new curriculum, hence the priority. CEHRD eventually plans to add all the other optional subjects too. However, it is bound to take some time as the number of optional subjects in classes 11 and 12 is quite enormous.

How to use Sikai Chautari?
You can visit Sikai Chautari by going to clicking on this link. The homepage consists of a three-level menu. On the first row, there are 12 buttons labeled 1 to 12, each representing the respective class. Here, one needs to select the class that they are in. The second row reveals all the lessons and topics available in the selected class, grouped by the subject.
The last row contains additional features such as a library full of additional resources, a dictionary, a calculator, and even games. There is an option to switch between English and Nepali as well.
Not responsive enough
Sikai Chautari worked fine when I accessed it on my laptop. Sadly, I couldn’t get the same experience when using a phone. The website lacks proper optimization for smaller displays. This really hurts the purpose of the platform since most Nepali students rely on their smartphones—as desktops or laptops are still far less accessible, especially in remote areas.
