Hiranandani Group along with Yotta and other subsidiaries have committed to invest up to 4000 crores in the project for around 8-10 years. Darshan Hiranandani the CEO of Hiranandani group said in a statement. “We have chosen Chennai to set up our Data Centre Park since it’s a global hub for major technology companies as well as has the strategic advantage of being a major international fibre landing station.”

The Tamil Nadu Government has committed to providing facilities like infrastructure support, regulatory approvals, permissions and registration in accordance with the local applicable laws. The setting up of this data centre will not just improve the internet traffic in India but will also create around 2000-2500 jobs in the state.

Strategically it was very important to build a data centre in India, as being one of the most populous and internet savvy countries, there was no datacentre yet and the nearest data centre was located in Singapore. It will certainly help Indians get connected to even faster internet with better latency and Companies and ISPs to set up their local servers for India.
