Jadavpur University - Department of Economics

Special Economic Zones (SEZs) constitute a medium for such sustenance. However, the SEZ policy in India has suffered from permission being granted for far too many sub-optimally sized SEZs or for others serving as appendages to mega cities and therefore inheriting all the diseconomies associated with the large size of the latter.
