India is one of world’s largest industrialized nations with a sizeable pool of technically trained and committed manpower, sound legal system, strong political will and institutional framework based on western business models. Since liberalization in 1991, it has emerged as an ideal location for setting up business ventures for export production.
NOIDA SEZ, the only SEZ in the northern India was set up in 1985 in Noida Phase-II on a 310 acre plot of land. Noida SEZ provides excellent infrastructure, supportive services and sector specific facilities for the thrust areas of exports like gem and jewellery and electronics software. This is the only land locked SEZ , contrary to other zones which are situated in Port Towns and hence emphasis of type of units to be set up are those with high value and low volume. Proximity to Delhi and availability of skilled and dedicated manpower makes it ideal for setting up jewellery and software development units. These two sectors have contributed more than 50 per cent of the export turn over annually.
Infrastructure, supportive services and trade related facilities have been substantially upgraded during the last few years. NSEZ offers access to global telecommunication network, uninterrupted power supply and efficient local transport system.
Customs Wing ensures prompt and on the spot clearances of export/import consignments. Besides, in-house post and telegraph office, sub-foreign post office, insurance and banking including ATM facilities, courier service facilities, industrial canteens and executive restaurant and travel/customs forwarding agencies have been provided.
Sector specific Infrastructure for software and gems & jewellery units has been developed. Satellite data link facilitates software exports. Earth station in Noida and the available VSNL outfit have further supplemented this facility. Highly trained and qualified manpower for software development is available in Uttar Pradesh and around Delhi.
Two exclusive complexes have been developed for jewellery units. MMTC has a full-fledged office in NSEZ for supply of gold which also provides packing credit facilities. Central Warehousing Corporation provides facilitation for handling and storage of jewellery cargo and services for completion of export formalities such as appraisement, processing of airway bills and transportation to the Airport. Sub- foreign post office facilitates export/import of jewellery samples.
As an inland zone, NSEZ is ideally suited for manufacture of low-volume high value and skill intensive products. Gems and jewellery and electronics sectors have noticeable presence in the zone. It is planned to attract jewellery and electronics units to the zone in view of locational and infrastructural advantages. These units are given priority in approvals and allotment of space.
