“India can grow to an infrastructure hub attracting $7 billion or 4.5% of the world’s investments by 2020 and there is an urgent need to create appropriate incentives to attract the investments and enable better connectivity, data speed and create more jobs in the country,” says the report.
The report warns that generating investment in data centres in India is about developing a regulatory regime that incentivizes private companies to invest in India. If the present regime is not reformed, India will forgo a valuable growth opportunity.
