On 14 September 2003, it became the Ministry of Information to which it was led by Sauytbek Adrahmanov.[6] The Ministry lasted until it was merged into the Ministry of Culture, Information, and Sports in 29 September 2004.[7]

The Ministry was created on 12 March 2010 as Ministry of Communications and Information after major changes and rearrangements in the Government through the incorporation of the Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Information and Communications which was reorganized into the Committee and Committee for Information and Archives of the former Ministry of Culture and Information. The Joint Stock Company "Arna Media National Information Holding" was also transferred to the new ministry, however, it was later disbanded.[8]
