1.5 How to use these Guidelines

Departments are expected to read, understand and implement these guidelines on all of their web-based initiatives. In other words, all the websites set up and owned by the Departments must comply with these guidelines. It is advised that even Intranet applications of the Departments, which are mostly browser based, should follow these guidelines. The Departments may draw their short term and long term timelines, depending upon their specific requirements, for compliance with these guidelines.
