Commenting on the development, Uttar Pradesh chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, said: “Data Centers are the hub of the digital revolution and the government of Uttar Pradesh has taken path-breaking steps, including a forward-looking Data Center policy helping and incentivising the development of high-quality large-scale data centers in Uttar Pradesh.”
“The Digital India initiative has opened up new avenues for businesses, and India has been on the upward trajectory with respect to digital transformation way before the pandemic hit us. The last couple of years have only reinstated the need to grow digital infrastructure in our country. Our data centre park in Greater Noida will go a long way to augment the digital infrastructure not only in Uttar Pradesh but also in the entire north region of country as Yotta continues to strive to bridge the demand-supply gap in the Indian data center industry,” said Darshan Hiranandani, Group CEO, Hiranandani Group.
