"Digital India is transforming the economy and opening up exciting new opportunities to serve customers. The data centre and cloud segment is an important pillar in our strategy to address enterprise customers' evolving needs," Gopal Vittal, MD & CEO (India and South Asia), Bharti Airtel, said in a statement.

"We have already undertaken some very ambitious projects in this area and the ambition is to leverage our strengths to gain disproportionate share in this space," he added.
