Abstract: Across the globe, organisations are moving towards cloud computing due to its wide array of advantages. The amplification in cloud adoption in near future is very predictable as it is cheaper, better and faster than traditional IT services. This review work primarily focuses on the determinants for the adoption of cloud computing in India and particularly in government sector. Government sector requires academic research because they are complex institutions, largest employers in the country and one of the biggest spenders on technology, but have not been positioned at the cloud computing dimension so far. India's adoption has not been accelerated at the pace which other nations across the globe have achieved. This study tries to find the gaps and bottlenecks for adoption of cloud computing and will form the bedrock for the future research in informational technology field.

Keywords: cloud service provider; infrastructure as a service; platform as a service; software as a service; government; India.
