NEW DELHI: Over 90 per cent of the area notified for setting up 58 special economic zones in different states in the last five years are lying vacant, Parliament was informed on Monday.
As much as 4,480.13 hectares of land are lying vacant as against the total notified area of 4,842.38 hectares to set up these special economic zones (SEZs).
Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that 362.25 hectares was being utilized to set up these 58 SEZs.
Return the land to the farmers, no agriculture land should ever be acquired for the big industrial houses by the Govt . It is a crime against the farmers and people.
Please ensure that this vacant land is use for the purpose for which it was acquired and is not held to make profits by the unscrupulous industrial houses
Govt. is taking cultivated lands from poor farmers and constructed the SEZ which is far from city… who will go and work and stay. Need to construct SEZ within city limits, govt lands
Farmers were just robbed
Indian govt is sleeping… wake up now
Finally the cat is out of the bag now will see how the things turn for land bill!!
Govt should took back all these lands and announce fresh auction
People prefer to work from home these days.
Okay, you declared it and now the real estate sharks with loot families of business & politics will try to usurp it through any means ! Wait a month to say there is no land left!
Does it on account of this government inactivity or having past legacy. This statement is counterproductive and it will boomrang.

When developers unable to develop SEZ in more than 5 years,return those land to farmers,why they wast land.
The respective Govts must resume the lands and either hand them over to persons from whom they were acquired , or put the land to profitable use.
