AP Govt plans to establish four SEZs

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Feb 16

THE Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, has said that the Government is in the process of establishing special economic zones (SEZs) in Penugonda and Hindupur, Nellore, and Chittoor.

This means that the State would be able to make use of all the international airports in the three Southern cities.

Speaking to newspersons after the MoU ceremony between the State and SemIndia, Dr Reddy said: "Given that the growth we are likely to witness in the State and with new projects coming in, and given the proximity of some of the southern districts of the State to Chennai and Bangalore, we will be able to use both the Devanahalli airport located near Bangalore and Chennai international airport as also the greenfield international airport at Hyderabad."

With the congestion faced by people with travelling from Bangalore to Devanahalli airport, which is about 60 km away, some of the companies located in the border districts of Andhra Pradesh would be able to better use the Bangalore airport.

Referring to the Krishna water project, which would be able to provide dedicated water supply required for SemIndia, Dr Reddy said that the second phase of the 90-million-gallons-a-day project would be completed within six months.
