Abstract

SEZs should be instrumental in creating a conducive and quality business environment. The success of SEZs would depend on their ability to attract units that are internationally competitive, which in turn would depend on the quality of infrastructure and the overall business environment that the SEZ provides. This chapter, based on a primary survey, assesses the quality of the business environment in SEZs and compares it with that in the DTA. The chapter makes broad recommendations to improve the quality of the business environment in SEZs for the long-term viability of SEZs in India.
