d. Only b and c
e. All the above

ANSWER: Only b and c
Government has allowed employees working in IT and ITeS special economic zones/SEZ to work from home or a place outside the zone provided that they meet certain conditions and demands of the industry
  • Government has extended this flexibility subject to conditions such that the person would be a regular SEZ employee and authorised by the unit to undertake work pertaining to it
  • Work performed by the home based employee should be as per services approved by the SEZ unit and the work is related to a project of the unit
  • This comes in wake of reports that exports from IT and ITeS SEZ clocked marginal growth of 0.77% to INR 4.76 lakh crore in 2015-2016
  • Government is looking to revive investor interest in such export hubs
  • SEZ units should provide laptop/desktop and secured connectivity to establish a connection between employee and work related to the project of the SEZ unit
