India proposes subsidy for MSMEs deploying cloud computing

April 8, 2017

The Indian government has proposed subsidy up to Rs 1 lakh for micro and small enterprises to encourage them to use cloud computing for information and communications technology applications. In cloud computing, MSMEs use Internet to access common as well as tailor-made IT infrastructure, including software, for managing business. The subsidy will be provided on user charges for 2 years.
The proposals are part of the modified guidelines of the scheme for ‘Promotion of Information and Communication Technology in MSME Sector’. It centres around cloud computing which is emerging as a cost-effective and viable alternative compared to in-house IT infrastructure. Source
