SE(i)Zing India through Tourism (Hindi)

SE(i)Zing India through Tourism (Hindi)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 945|Likes:
When the Special Economic Zone Act was passed in 2005, it generated a euphoric response from the private sector. However, it has raised concerns from those who do not see SEZs benefiting them but rather increasing hardships of economic livelihood and sustenance of people. Tourism is also in the list of industries seeking potential benefits from the SEZ Policy. According to the SEZ Act 2005 and corresponding Rules, only 25%-30% of the total area in any SEZ need be statutorily used for developing and setting up of the industrial/manufacturing units. The rest of the land can be used for developing 'infrastructure'. This gives an open invitation to the hospitality, entertainment and hotel sectors to make the most with SEZs. Further, the National Tourism Advisory Council (NTAC) proposed to the Ministry of Tourism and Culture that the government should also consider Special Tourism Zones (STZs) on the lines of SEZs.

This publication captures critical links between the SEZ policy and role of tourism that needs our continued campaign focus. We hope it serves as a useful reference and spreads awareness on the need to intensify our struggles against this policy.
