Modal Answer:

Data Centre is a dedicated secure space within a building/centralized location where computing and networking equipment is concentrated for the purpose of collecting, storing, processing, distributing, or allowing access to large amounts of data.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeiTy) notified Data Centre Policy.

 

Objectives of Data Centre Policy:

  • Drive necessary regulatory, structural and procedural interventions for enabling ease of doing business in the sector, towards attracting investments and accelerating the existing pace of Data Centre growth in the country.

  • Promote sector competitiveness through various fiscal and non-fiscal incentives.

  • Promote domestic start-ups, MSMEs, and other Indian IT companies and provide impetus to indigenous manufacturing of IT and non-IT equipment.

  • Facilitate access to uninterrupted and cost-effective power, which forms one of the most critical aspects for operating the Data Centre.

  • Measures to bring in necessary improvement in network backhaul, domestic as well as international.

  • Meet the data security needs by promoting investments in trusted (safe and secure) Data Centres in India.

  • Facilitate standardization in the development of Data Centres.

Data centers would promote capacity building in the sector through association with various skilling/human resource development programs.
