NIC is providing responsible for providing  governance services and hosts nearly 10,000 websites of the government.

This new centre is the fourth such data centre in the country.

Spread over an area of 40,000 square feet, the centre will support 35,000 virtual servers.

“Data centre is important because data sanctity is important,” Prasad said.

The new data centre will offer round-the-clock operations with secure hosting for e-governance applications of various ministries and departments.

“With a slew of government apps including MyGov, e-way bill, public finance management system, eHospitals all being hosted by NIC, the demand for computing and storage has increased many folds,” said Neeta Verma, director general of NIC.
