WHY KERALA
 

At Technopolis you enjoy an array of unique advantages, unavailable anywhere else in the country.

CSEZ - Zero duties on imports, No red tape

Cochin Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) is a special enclave run directly by the Government of India.

The CSEZ offers:

  • Duty Free imports for all their export production requirements
  • More freedom to units in routine operations
  • Exemption of Central Excise Duty on procurement from the domestic market of capital goods, raw materials, consumables spares etc. And no red tape.

Cochin, the newest IT Destination

  • India's No. 2 Super ITES Destination
    Cochin is one of India's most pulsating cosmopolitan cities and is fast emerging as a unique ITpolis. Cochin was ranked number 2 in a report by NASSCOM on the country's Super ITES destinations ranks and number 3 in a study of cities ideal to do business in by Business Today.
  • Better Tele Connectivity
    Cochin is directly connected by two submarine cables and satellite gateways which in fact are used to support cities like Bangalore. This clear telecom infrastructural advantage leads to better reliability and reduced tariff.
  • International air, sea, land access
    The Technopolis is just 23 kms from the airport (incidentally, India's first and only private sector airport), and only 10 kms from the heart of the city. Kochi is only 4 hrs from the Trivandrum international airport and the Kozhikode airport. Kochi's all-weather seaport offer integrated customs operations and at least 10 sailings per week. Only Mumbai has this kind of international access.
