  7. the full form of SEZ is Special Econonmic Zone. the govt. follows liberal economic policies for the welfare of these zones. for eg. the govt. has announced an exemption from tax for all the industries in himachal pradesh for a period of five years from their commencement. so these industries come under SEZ’s.
