Maytas seeks denotification of its AP SEZ

Maytas Ventures SEZ Pvt Ltd has approached the Commerce Ministry for surrendering its 14.15 hectare sector-specific SEZ in Ranga Reddy district in Andhra Pradesh.

“The developer has submitted that due to financial recession they have decided to get their SEZ denotified,” a source familiar with the proceedings said, adding that the case would be take up by the Board of Approval (BoA) meeting on August 11.

No tax exemption

Though the developer has not availed any exemption towards customs duty, excise duty and sales tax for their SEZ but has availed service tax exemption.

“They have availed service tax exemption for Rs 31,46,550... requested to waive off (need) to refund the said service tax.. in view of poor financial position,” the source said.
Maytas, promoted by kin of B Ramalinga Raju - founder of Satayam Computer, has plans to set up six ITITeS SEZs in Andhra Pradesh of which three zones have already been notified by the government and rest are in the process of being granted formal approvals.

The developers of these SEZs are Maytas Enterprises, Maytas Ventures and Maytas Hill Country SEZ. Maytas Enterprises has also been granted one year extension to set up its ITITeS SEZ in the Ranaga Reddy district.
