  SEZ is essentially an industrial cluster meant largely for exports.

  An SEZ is governed by a special set of rules aimed at attracting direct investment for export-oriented production.

Salient features of SEZs are:

 Both manufacturing of goods or service are allowed
 No routine examination by customs authorities of export/import cargo
 No requirement for import license
 Units in SEZs have to become net foreign exchange earners within 3 years
 Domestic sales from them are subject to full customs duty and the import policy in force.
 Developing self-sustaining industrial townships so that the increased economic activity does not create pressure on the existing infrastructure.
 SEZ developer would be responsible for all civic amenities and infrastructure including roads, sewerage, open spaces, green spaces, education facilities, power, water supply and housing etc.
