As per the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the principal objectives behind creating SEZs in the country include: (i) generation of additional economic activity; (ii) promotion of exports of goods and services; (iii) promotion of investment from domestic and foreign sources, (iv) creation of employment opportunities, and (v) development of infrastructure facilities
