With digitization permeating all aspects of life and regulatory focus on data localization, it is necessary to ensure that the data centre industry does not develop in a regulatory vacuum.
While several states have taken the initiative to enact state specific data centre policies, the national data centre policy still remains in the draft stage. It should also be noted that data centre policies at this stage have focused solely on issuing incentives and providing exemptions to encourage and attract investment. The governance aspect should not be ignored while formulating policy.
