Beed (Maha): India needs Petaflop series of supercomputer, but the Centre is not willing to give any financial assistance for the project, a top IT scientist said here on Saturday.

"Petaflop is a measure of a computer's processing speed and can be expressed as thousand trillion floating point operations per second," architect of PARAM series of supercomputers Vijay Bhatkar told PTI.

America, Japan, China and India are the only countries in the world that have been carrying out research on Petaflop Computer Series, he said.

"To make Petaflop we need Rs 1,000 crore and 50 MW separate electrical power station, but the Centre is not willing to give funds to the project," he said.
