Ministry of Electronics and IT has drafted a Data Centre policy to benefit the Data Centre park developers/Data Centre operators as well as the allied ecosystem of the Data Centre sector. The policy envisages making India a Global Data Centre hub, promote investment in the sector, propel digital economy growth, enable provisioning of trusted hosting infrastructure to fulfill the growing demand of the country and facilitate state of the art service delivery to citizens. This document lays out a policy framework including various structural / regulatory interventions, investment promotion in the sector, possible Incentivization mechanisms along with the institutional mechanism required for the governance. The policy framework also seeks to strengthen the recently announced “AatmaNirbhar Bharat” initiative by identifying possible opportunities of manufacturing of Data Centre equipment (IT as well as non-IT) in the country. It also identifies possible areas of participation by MSMEs and Start-ups.

The policy intends to ensure sustainable and trusted Data Centre capacity within the country. This policy framework shall be followed by a detailed scheme with implementation guideline document providing the particulars of various fiscal and non-fiscal incentives to be provided to the sector by the Central and State Government.

For the same, Ministry of Electronics and IT invites citizen suggestions on the Draft Data Center Policy 2020.
Refer to the Policy document here : Draft Data Center Policy 2020

Honourable PM, Subsidies are being provided to the economically downtrodden people. Indeed, this is a noble job. But, a poor person has become sound economically on his/her own effort, then Govt. subsidies need to be discontinued, otherwise he will become idle and there will be misuse of Govt. fund. This is required to be monitored transparently, otherwise our country will not become strong economically. This is my suggestion. With kindest regards, Sankar Saha, Baruipur, Kolkata.

Since India is mostly a hot place we should make sure that any data center that is built in India is energy efficient via renewable energy. Thus, bringing down the costs of maintaining one and allowing the industry to thrive. We should not allow them to use up our traditional power resources. This way we encourage businesses that are building data centers to also help in renewable energy generation. https://e360.yale.edu/features/energy-hogs-can-huge-data-centers-be-made....

good to see banks were taking aggressive on emi recovery this year. as many other issues happening. even ecs were re submitted and charges applied on the same. still no relief for salaried class and tds payees. infact loans issued only based on itr and this year issues were common. public have tendency to save for future. and already exhausted for maintaining own family and helping others. and still starimg to future - what else can we do?

डेटा सेंटर पॉलिसी एक अच्छी पहल है लेकिन हमें ये पॉलिसी सही और सटीक ढंग से बनानी होगी क्योंकि ज़्यादातर हमारे देश की आबादी ग्रामीण क्षेत्र में रहती है इस पॉलिसी ड्राफ्टिंग करते हुए ग्रामीण क्षेत्र पर विशेष धयान देना चाहिये क्योंकि हम अभी 4g नेट्वर्क चला रहे है और ये नेटवर्क ग्रामीण क्षेत्र में 2g ही रहता है सस्ता व सुलभ नेटवर्क उक्त पॉलिसी को मजबूत बना सकता है उक्त को लेकर कठोर कायदे नियम भी बनाने पड़ेंगे क्योंकि आगे आने वाला समय डेटा नेटवर्क का ही रहेगा और हर देश समस्त जरूरत इसी क्षेत्र पर निर्भर
