Santacruz Electronic Export Processing Zone (SEEPZ)

SEEPZ – Santacruz Electronic Export Processing Zone was established in the year 1973 in an area of around 10 acres. It is an uni-product EPZ. The purpose of the organization is to manufacture and export electronic products. The SEEPZ has leased the land from Maharashtra Industrial Industrial Development Corporation. Now the SEEPZ is a landmark of the Andheri East Mumbai.

The pursuits of SEEPZ are as follows:

  • To rev the progress of manufacturing of electronic items in India 
  • To benefit from the word electronic markets such as export and foreign exchange. 

In 1987-88, the govt of India permitted the SEEPZ to manufacture and export Jewellery/Gems by considering the fact of pollution-free business and its high potential. The step of govt became the changing point in the history of SEEPZ.

SEEPZ released its Special Economic Zones (SEZs) Policy in April 2000. The policy was introduced to handle the operations at SEEPZ efficiently as there were multiple controls in the company at that time. The company was lacking in world-class infrastructure, the fiscal regime was unstable, and SEEPZ aims to attract larger foreign investments in India. On the 01st of November 2000, the three Export Processing Zones of SEEPZ were converted to a single Special Economic Zone. 

The policy was implemented for the economic growth of the SEEPZ and there should be quality infrastructure along with the appealing fiscal package. The SEEPZ aims at the state level and center level in India. The operation of SEEPZ was as per Foreign Trade Policy from the 1st of November to the 09th of February 2006. At that time, the SEEPZ achieved fiscal incentives via the provisions of relevant statutes.
