Why is Gangaikondan an ideal choice for investors?

The Governments of Tami Nadu and India are currently offering incentives to industries for starting their operations in Tier-II cities like Tirunelveli. An IT/ITES (Information Technology/Information Technology Enabled Services) Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is coming up in Gangaikondan in a 500 acres area and the land allotment for the same is currently underway. STPI's ten year tax holiday is getting over in 2009 and the companies enjoying the benefits now would like to move to SEZs to continue to avail them.

A Transport Engineering Goods SEZ is also coming up in an area of 255 acres within SIPCOT for the manufacture of all types of tyres. The setting up of this project in Tirunelveli district will encourage other investors to locate their projects in the southern districts to which the government accords high priority. So the demand for housing sites in this area would only grow in the future and that makes Gangaikondan an ideal choice for investors. As the current cost of land is lower in this area compared to major cities and towns, Gangaikondan will provide a better RoI.
