Collision strengths and collisional rate parameters are provided for transitions among the and 2p levels of C-like Fe xxi. The data have been computed in a 52-state Breit-Pauli approximation thus accounting for the most prominent relativistic effects. An R-matrix close-coupling calculation comprising partial wave contributions up to and of order 8000 energy points in the range up to 260 Ryd gave cross sections expected to be accurate to better than 20% for transitions among the levels.
