Private entities and Central PSUs can also partner with State governments to set up the manufacturing zone in the respective states. In the joint venture between the private entity/CPSU and a State government agency, the State should hold a minimum of 26 per cent equity.
The zones will come up by 2026-27. (KNN Bureau)
