Employees of a SEZ unit can work from home under the new rule.

Employees of IT/ITeS special economic zones, temporarily incapacitated, working offsite, and those travelling include those covered.

There is no limitation on the number of WFH employees a unit can have, including contract employees.

Employees will be able to use the equipment from SEZ units while having access to secure connectivity.

More than 50% of employees can be approved by development commissioners for written reasons.
