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?
