Kolkata: TMC secretary general and state industrial minister Partha Chatterjee on Monday said the state government has given its nod to Adani Enterprises to set up a 100 per cent hyper-scale data centre at Bengal Silicon Valley in new Town area near Kolkata on 51.75 acres of land.
“The data centre project of Adani will come up on 51.75 acres of land, which has been given on a 99-year lease. The state government had affirmed this in the cabinet meeting. This will give a boost to the economic activity and employment generation in the state,” said Chatterjee.
