- SEZ Policy, Merits vs Demerits
SEZs are the best solution in the path of economic growth. But that growth would not be worth if there will be no proper SEZ policies and if farmers will not be properly remunerated for the land on which SEZs are going to built. As if a particular class of people will only grow in any country then we cant say that the country is growing. So poor farmers should be recompensed and government should give them some work so that they can carry a smooth life without any hurdles. Those who are against the SEZs argue that giving tax breaks to SEZs is not a good idea. They are also against acquisition of fertile agricultural land as it will make many farmers landless.
I completely agree with the fact that SEZs are an important factor in the growth of Indian Economy. To compete with china in economic growth SEZs can be important. So proper policy towards SEZ's with due care being taken for poor farmers will definitely help India to achieve its economic goal.CommentQuote0Flag
- SEZ Policy - For or Against
Hello to all of you,
I agree with you Mohit that there are both merits as well as demerits of SEZs. There is no doubt that SEZs are the way to the economic development of India, but there is no benefit if a particular part of the society only moves forward in the path of development, so we should take everyone with us. Then only India can be a developed country.
Social Activist Medha Patkar claimed, the Central Government's move to approve 83 tax-free enclaves for Special Economic Zones (SEZs) status is against the spirit of the Constitution. "The decision on SEZs is against the spirit of the Constitution of India. How much of land will be allotted to a single company is not explained by the government," Patkar said.
She termed the new policy as 'wrong and weak', saying it was against the interests of peasants.
In my opinion there is an urgent need to rethink about the SEZ policies. If the same policies will be implemented then I am completely against this SEZ policy as this will be the against the interests of Poor Farmers and Peasants.
So on which side you are? SEZ policy - For or AgainstCommentQuote0Flag
