Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath yesterday (24 October) gave his approval for the establishment of a data centre park near Greater Noida on a plot of 20 acres at a cost of Rs 200 crore, reports Livemint.

The high-profile project will be executed by Mumbai-based Hiranandani Group, which has already set up data centre parks in Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad. To facilitate the same, CM Adityanath directed the officials to complete the land allotment and enable the operations without any problems.

Furthermore, to address the large energy needs in operations of data centres, the State Government has also made adequate arrangements to ensure uninterrupted power supply through its "Open Access Scheme".

The establishment of the data centre park will create employment opportunities for the youth of the State. Also, the State Government said that in the absence of adequate data centres, data is largely stored in locations outside India. With the establishment of the data centre park, such data will be safely kept here.
