What is a Special Economic Zone?

Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is a specifically delineated duty free enclave and shall be deemed to be foreign territory for the purposes of trade operations and duties and tariffs in India.

Who can set up SEZs?

Any private/public/joint sector or State Government or its agencies can set up Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

Can Foreign Companies set up SEZs ?


Are there any terms & conditions for setting up of SEZ ?

Only units approved under SEZ scheme would be permitted to be located in SEZ. The SEZ units shall abide by local laws, rules, regulations or bye-laws in regard to area planning, sewerage disposal, pollution control and the like. They shall also comply with industrial and labour laws as may be locally applicable. Such SEZ shall make security arrangements to fulfill all the requirements of the laws, rules and procedures applicable to such SEZ.

The Multi-Product SEZs should have a minimum area of 1000 hectares and at least 35 % ( now it is proposed to increase it to 50% by some state governments) of the area is to be earmarked for developing industrial area for setting up of units. IT  & ITES SEZs can be established in an area minimum 10 Hectares and above. Minimum area of 1000 hectares will not be applicable to product specific and port/airport based SEZs .
