Found a new blog focused on the new SEZ policy called the Reliance SEZ Blog.
Check it out : http://reliancesez.blogspot.com/
Somethings for us bloggers to take up.
- Collect details of SEZs in China and Middle East (especially Jebel Ali in Dubai)
- Scan the SEZ appovals granted so far. See http://www.sezindia.nic.in/ Interesting to see that Wipro can got an approval for a 6 hectare (thats right 6 hectare SEZ) in Hyderabad and two SEZs of 5 hectare and 6 hectare each in Sarjapur Bangalore. Hexaware (Software) and Syntel (Software) have approval for two 11 acre SEZs in Chennai. Note these are SEZs not mere units within an SEZ. You cant blame them because they will take advantage of any policy to maximise their profits. The government must not allow such tiny SEZs to come up. It will spell disaster for existing infrastructure around these SEZs.
While the entire nation is focused on divisive policies such as unmonitored quotas based on caste / religion / or gender. We cant allow such a land scam to go unnoticed.
