Adani Group, one of India’s leading businesses, is planning to set up a hyper-scale data center in outer Kolkata’s Silicon Valley, said West Bengal minister for Commerce and Industries, Partha Chatterjee.
Adani Enterprises is coming up with its new hyper-scale data center in Kolkata. The unit will be set up at Bengal Silicon Valley in the New Town area on the northern outskirts of Kolkata. The information was given by the West Bengal Commerce and Industries Minister Partha Chatterjee.
Gautam Adani, while addressing this year’s Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) in April, said that his group is planning to invest Rs 10,000 crore in the state over the next ten years. BGBS is an annual event organized by the West Bengal government to promote the state as a lucrative business spot.
The investment planning of the Adani Group includes sectors like data centers, warehouses, and under-sea cables. According to Mr. Adani, “This will provide employment to around 25,000 people. As we make these investments, we will bring in the state world-class technology”.
While talking to the media, Mr. Chaterjee commented, “We have already allotted 51.75 acres of land for that purpose at Bengal Silicon Valley. The land is being allotted on the basis of a 99-year lease”.
According to West Bengal’s Commerce and Industries Minister, this data center will be the first installment of the investment proposed by Adani Group.
West Bengal government is undergoing a serious investment drive by promoting business in the state. In this series, the state will also witness the setting up of four bicycle manufacturing units by four different companies in the West Midnapore district.
