For businesses considering setting up a new unit in the SEZ, Mr. Vara Prasad emphasized the expeditious pre-approval process through the Single Window Mechanism, facilitating priority approvals from key regulatory bodies such as the Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board (APPCB), Department of Factories, Prohibition & Excise, Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority (VUDA), Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC), and Labour Licenses.

Additionally, the guidelines for the clearance of abandoned goods and uncleared cargo in Free Trade Warehousing Zones (FTWZs) are instrumental in promoting efficient logistics operations.

Dr. Lal Krishna underscored that these progressive initiatives align with the goals of the business community and will undoubtedly contribute to making SEZs more attractive for investments and business expansion.
