A typical comprehension of "cloud computing" is constantly advancing, and the phrasing and ideas used to characterize it frequently need clearing up. "Cloud computing" was begat for what happens when services and applications are moved into the internet that is cloud. Cloud processing is not something that abruptly seemed overnight; in some structure it may follow back to a period when computer system frameworks remotely time-shared registering assets and applications. All the more presently however, cloud computing alludes to the a wide range of sorts of applications and services being conveyed in the cloud and the way that, much of the time, the devices used to get to these services don't require any unique applications. With the help of cloud computing, you can utilize programming conveyed through the Internet on the program with no installation, have an application on the Internet, set up your own storage of remote file and database framework and that's just the beginning. Cloud itself is a virtualisation of resources like servers, networks, applications, services and data storage) and allows on-demand access for the users. Due to numerous advantages of cloud computing - government sector is also affected. In this paper we give an overview, how cloud computing grows in government sector across the globe.
