Navi Mumbai is now home to Asia's largest data centre- Yotta NM1

Yotta NM1 is the largest Tier IV data centre in Asia and second largest in the world!

Navi Mumbai has got a brand new data centre called the Yotta NM1, which is India's largest. This data centre is certified by Uptime Institute in Asia and is the second-largest in the world. The Yotta NM1 is located in the 600 acres, Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel.


Digital Inauguration for Yotta NM1

Yotta NM1 was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Maharashtra, in the virtual presence of Minister for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice, Govt. of India and Minister of Industries and Mining, Govt. of Maharashtra over a video conference.

Yotta is a complete package from control over input resources, presence of huge land banks that also have green energy generation and distribution capacities. The unequalled expertise and experience in various data centre branches of design, engineering, construction and operations along with massive economies of scale is what makes Yotta one of its kind. This indigenous ownership and control makes Yotta NM1 a global pioneer not only in terms of of capability and cost but also, in terms of its focus on efficiency and sustainability.

Yotta NM1 is first of the five data centre buildings coming up at this Integrated Yotta Data Centre Park, which, once fully built, will have an overall capacity of 30,000 racks and 250 MW power, Yotta Infrastructure said.

At 820,000 sq. ft, 7,200 racks, 50 MW of power and 4 redundant self-owned fiber paths connecting the data centre to national highways, the Yotta NM1 data centre is capable of hosting global Cloud, content and OTT operators besides the mission-critical applications of enterprises and governments, the company said.

"This particular data centre is a powerful statement of intent that India is rising high in the quest of data security, data use and data innovation," Union IT Minister was quoted as saying in a statement.

"For the success of Digital India, we must become a big global data refinery -- data cleaning, data processing, data innovation and research -- and all of this will need to be done keeping in mind data privacy laws. We shall never compromise on the data sovereignty of India," he said.

Besides Navi Mumbai, Yotta is also developing similar sized giant data centre parks at Chennai and New Delhi.

Each of these parks will feature more than 20,000 racks, 200 MW plus power and multiple self-owned fiber paths connecting the park to the main highways, Yotta Infrastructure said, adding that it plans to invest about Rs 15,000 crore over next seven to 10 years across these data centre parks.

Coinciding with the Prime Minister's Digital India and Made in India, this data centre is a big step in India's venture into the shared data space. As enterprises and government agencies aim at self-reliance (Atmanirbhar) now more than they did previously, emphasis on data privacy/protection and consequently on data localisation has become primary in their supply chains. This heightened need of data management in today's time of unprecedented digital growth has given rise to the need of having world class data management and storage centres and Yotta NM1 is just that!

In an attempt to benefit the children with special needs, the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education has decided to implement a 50% reduction in the examination fees for them. Reportedly, a circular issued by the secretary of the Goa Board stated that the examination fee shall be decreased to 50% of its current value for all the specially-abled children who will sit for their class 10th or 12th board examination through an accredited secondary or higher secondary school.

No practical examinations fees for examinees with special needs

The amended fee amount stands at ₹ 525 for students who deposit within the stipulated time while it would be ₹ 1,025 if the late fee is added. These students will also be exempted from paying the fee for practical examination. Additionally, a reduced fee of ₹ 300 would be charged for providing the statement of marks and the passing certificate.

The board's resolve attempts to grant an advantage to the kids with special needs. Though the decision regarding the concessions was taken by the Goa Board's executive council in January last year, it is being extended to the students from the forthcoming board examination.

Not the first benefit scheme of the state board

As practised by all other boards of education, the Goa board also provides other relaxations to these students appearing for 10th and 12th examinations. Facilities like the help of a scribe are provided based on the nature and extent of disability.

The latest intervention is not the first of its kind in Goa. Since 2005, the Goa Board has kept a separate set of provisions for children with special needs. The scheme that underwent revisions in 2008 and later in 2018 is targeted towards providing financial aids to regular schools for establishing resource rooms and executing all-encompassing methods of education. Also, allowances are offered to the parents of these children for being able to avail facilities like physiotherapy.
