Lucknow, NFAPost: Uttar Pradesh govt has given approval to establish a data centre park near Greater Noida to generate employment opportunities for the youth in the state.
The project will be set up by the Hiranandani group near Greater Noida on a 20-acre plot. The project cost of the data centre park is over ₹600 crore.
According to a govt. statement, CM Yogi Adityanath directed the officials to facilitate land allotment for the ambitious project and also enable its operation without any problem.
Since these data centres consume large amounts of energy, the government has also made adequate arrangements for uninterrupted power supply which will be provided through the ‘Open Access Scheme’.
In the absence of adequate data centres, data is largely stored in locations outside the country but with this data park it will now be safely kept here.
The Hirandani Group, the real estate developers of Mumbai, has earlier set up similar data centre parks in Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad.
