    Ever since the government decided to allow companies to set up SEZs, India Inc has rushed in with big plans for projects across the country. Corporate giants such as Tata Consultancy Services, Reliance Industries (Mukesh Ambani group), Reliance Anil Ambani Group, DLF Ltd., Unitech Group, Parsvnath Developers and Videocon Group are all into developing SEZs.Foreign direct investment continues to play an important role.
