Centre clears extension of Wipros SEZ in Kolkata

In a decision that will allow IT-major Wipro Technologies to expand its IT or ITES Special Economic Zone at Salt Lake, Kolkata, the government has agreed to waive the contiguity or continuity norm permitting the company to include another patch of land that is not attached to the existing zone.
The Board of Approval for SEZs, however, placed the condition that the developer has to put in place fool-proof security systems at the entry and exit points to preclude foul-play.
Wipro had requested the BoA to allow it to develop 2.5 acres of land with the existing structure of 11 floors as an extension of its Salt Lake SEZ, despite the two pieces of land being non-contiguous. It had suggested that it would build in a fool-proof surveillance system to ensure that items were not brought in or taken out of the SEZ illicitly.
