PREFACEThis report has been prepared as a part of the practice component of our course HS-
6101 titled ―Human Resource Management‖. The practice component has provided us
with an opportunity to research and explore a recent topic and we have tried to relate
it with what we have learnt in our course. The topic of our report is ―The
economic implications of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in India‖.
Through the topic has been discussed in news forums and various dailies for quitesome time but doe to its recency, there has not been much detailed research on it.Lack of any such detailed work made the report preparation quite a challenging task as we had to gather material from news articles, mafgazines, discussions forums, etc.Most sources mentioned here provided a divided opinion of the impact of SpecialEconomic Zones and we had to mostly rely on our own ideas and opinions.Inspite of these minor hurdles we have tried our best to come at a reasonableconclusion. We have started with an introduction of SEZs covering the past and present initiatives. Then some positive and negative aspects of SEZs have been givenand their impact on society has been analysed. Next we have drawn examples of the recent disturbances arising due to SEZs and
their possible causes. We have also involved a comparision of China‘s SEZ model
and its lessons for India.We sincerely hope that this report provides a better insight into the effect of SEZs inIndia.
