Effective collision strengths for transitions among the energetically lowest 46 fine-structure levels belonging to the (1s(2)) 2S(2) 2p(2), 2s2p(3), 2p(4), 2S(2)2p3s, 2s(2)2p3p and 2S(2)2p3d configurations of Fe XXI are computed, over an electron temperature range of 5.6 less than or equal to log T-e less than or equal to 7.4 K, using the recent Dirac Atomic R- matrix Code (DARC) of Norrington and Grant. Results are presented for transitions within the ground configuration only, and are compared with earlier R matrix calculations. Large discrepancies are observed for many transitions, especially at lower temperatures.
