 AGRI EXPORT ZONES

For details visit  APEDA website

With a view to promoting agricultural exports from the country and remunerative returns to the farming community in a sustained manner, the concept of the agri export zones (AEZ) was floated. These zones have been set up for end to end development for export of specific products from a geographically contiguous area.

 

AEZ are to be identified by the State Government, who would evolve a comprehensive package of services provided by all State Government agencies, State agriculture universities and all institutions and agencies of the Union Government for intensive delivery in these zones. Corporate sector with proven credentials would be encouraged to sponsor new agri export zone or take over already notified agri export zone or part of such zones for boosting agri exports from the zones.

 

Services which would be managed and co-ordinated by State Government/corporate sector  and would include provision of pre/post harvest treatment and operations, plant protection, processing, packaging, storage and related research & development etc. APEDA will supplement, within its schemes and provisions, efforts of State Governments for facilitating such exports.

 

Units in AEZ would be entitled for all the facilities available for exports of goods in terms of provisions of the respective schemes.

 

The Agri Export Zones are notified under Appendix 15 of the Handbook of Procedures (Vol 1) under the Exim Policy.

 

The list of the Agri Export Zones is as under:
