The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has authorised Google Cloud to use cloud technology to address challenging issues for governmental organisations. 

With the empanelment, also known as the MeitY accreditation, Google is now in a position to collaborate fully with Indian public sector organisations and take an active role in the country's digital transformation initiatives, particularly Project Meghraj, which aims to create a multi-level, national cloud-sharing foundation that provides everyone with accessible, safe, and affordable data storage.

In order to help clients and the public sector in India and throughout Asia Pacific, Google Cloud last year announced the creation of the Delhi NCR Cloud Region in India. Modern equipment and technology will be made available by the cloud regions in India, which will act as a catalyst for this change.

Competitors of Google, including Microsoft, IBM, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Oracle, have already been given the go-ahead by MeitY to acquire and launch digital transformation projects.
