Amazon Web Services (AWS) will invest ₹20,761 crore ($2.77 billion) to establish data centres in Telangana, the state's IT minister KT Rama Rao announced on Thursday. This will involve the setting up of an AWS Region in Hyderabad, which is expected to become operation by mid-2022; it will be second region in India after Mumbai, which was launched in 2016.
