The Tamil Nadu government has signed memoranda of understanding (MoU) with Capita Land and Web Werks to set up two data centres in Ambattur. The MoU’s were signed at an investment conclave in the presence of Chief Minister MK Stalin. 

Ambattur is ideal for data centre companies due to its geographical conditions and existing data centre ecosystem. Siruseri is the next favoured destination due to the presence of several IT companies, which offers market opportunities. 

The Information Technology department is working with the companies on a data centre policy to strengthen the ecosystem for data centre companies in Tamil Nadu. The common requirements of data centres pertaining to housing regulations and power are being worked on to encourage data centre investments and downstream investments.

Tamil Nadu has six submarine data cables with a bandwidth of 14.8 Tbps (the highest in the country). Rural areas of the State are also well connected, with more than 12,524 village panchayats with a minimum scalable bandwidth of 1 Gbps.
