The government introduced a Maharashtra SEZ Bill which intended “to provide for development, operations, maintenance, management and administration of the Special Economic Zones and other specially designated areas in the state for promoting growth of export from, the economic activities in such zones and areas.”
There are SEZ’s planned in Mumbai (Gorai) and in the MMR (NMSEZ, MMSEZ) and nearly 206 in Maharashtra. We felt that the impact of these designated areas would be felt strongly in Mumbai and MMR as well as other cities in Maharashtra and their corresponding regions. As part of this public discussion we invited speakers from varied backgrounds to present their experiences and views.
