USD650M For Supercomputing In India


Chairman of the Parliamentary standing committee on science, technology and environment Ashwani Kumar said that the Centre has approved the national supercomputing policy.

As part of the supercomputing policy, the government plans to build a vast supercomputing grid that will include over 70 high-performance computing facilities. The project is to be implemented within a seven-year period, with benefits reaching the people by 2025.

He also said: “Though China has taken the lead in supercomputing, India has plans to augment its supercomputing capabilities so that the benefits reach the people. The spinoff effects of technology and R&D – that reaches the private sector – is not good enough. Share of private sector in R&D and innovation is only one third in IndiaIt is two third in other countries. We need to reverse that trend and opt for public private sector participation (PPP)”
