Data Flows and Data Localisation: An Economic Analysis

We gratefully acknowledge the support from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) in facilitating this research under the Chair on Internet Policy. We humbly recognize the cooperation of the Joint Secretaries and Officers of the Internet Governance Division within MEITY, without whose constant support and diligence the research under this project would not have been possible. We also thank the Project Review & Steering Group (PRSG) for their valuable comments during the review meeting. With the unwieldy data work, we were also ably aided by our interns, Srishti Sinha, Shaivya Harit and Siddharth Mishra with infectious enthusiasm and utmost dedication. Last, but not least, we are grateful to all our colleagues at ICRIER for providing a stimulating environment that enriches our research. All errors are our own.
