Mamata govt scraps SEZ policy
According to Mr Partha Chatterjee, State Commerce and Industries Minister, the incumbent Government was against the setting up of special economic zones. Hence, the policy was scrapped.
Asked if this meant that the State Government was unwilling to give land to IT major Infosys, he reiterated the government's no SEZ stand but said that the State was willing to help Infosys in all possible ways.
"Although we are against SEZs, we are willing to help Infosys in all possible ways. We too want Infosys to set up their campus here," he told reporters at Writers' Buildings. Infosys has reportedly kept its decision to set up a campus in the State on hold after the State government refused to grant it SEZ status.
According to Mr Chatterjee, the State Government has given a proposal to the Union Commerce Minister, Mr Anand Sharma. The proposal is supposed to help Infosys get financial benefits without the SEZ tag. "If the proposal is rejected there are other ways to help them out," he added.
