Abstract

With its focus on exports, special economic zones are enclaves that receive greater incentives from the government that are often not available to the rest of the country. Many countries over the last century have established such zones with the view to attract investments. There are cases of failure and success, which have key implications and lessons for these zones in India. Within India, special economic zones have not particularly been successful in attracting investments or boosting exports—thereby setting the context for this book to undertake a detailed study of the special economic zones policy in India by suggesting recommendations.
