As a part of government's endeavour to provide a simple operating regime for units in Special Economic Zones (SEZs), Export Processing Zones (EPZs) and Export Oriented Unites (EOUs), Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion has issued a notification on 4/12/2000 exempting them from the industrial licensing requirement for establishment of projects for manufacture of items reserved for small scale sector. This step is expected to facilitate expeditious clearance of proposals for setting up of units under SEZ, EPZ and EOU schemes at the level of Development Commissioner under the automatic route.
