Details of SEZ approvals in Andhra Pradesh


 
There are altogether 66 SEZs in AP approved so far with an area of 8020 Hectares. From the official source “Ministry of Commerce & Industry Department of Commerce” Website.

The details are interesting and reveal that it is tip of the iceberg. For instance the data on Polepally SEZ mentions that 101.17 Ha has been allotted to APIIC in Rajapur & Polepally villages of Balanagar and Jedcharla mandals for Pharmaceutical Formulation SEZ. While the reality is that about 1000 acres is acquired from the villages causing 42 deaths so far

What is the extent of land acquisition in other SEZs is known to the people affected in each of the 66 SEZ areas … but NOT TO REST OF US !  What Should we do?

leave a comment »

– Rakesh

All of us are made believe that SEZs will usher in the next revolution in this country that will get millions out of poverty and unemployment. Lakhs of acres of farmland has already been grabbed in the name of industrialization and SEZs. Not sure how many thousands and millions they brought out of poverty, but this has exposed the ugly and the dark face of the Government. This is the new Avatar of the Government – the most ugly face of being a Land broker. I cannot fight against all that is happening, but decided to find out and probably expose this ugly face I believe is ruining the country. All this using RTI (Right to Information Act).     Click HERE to read Complete Article >>
