Since 1990’s the structural reforms elevated India from import substitute to export promotion regime. In society to carry through this process of transformation, government of India has set up several export pro programmers in India. The initial success of the export promotion zones (EPZ), superseded by the new industrial enclaves with more incentives and benefits to the stakeholders is termed as “Special Economic Zone”. Prolonged growth in the pace of economic growth intensified the process of creation of SEZ throughout the state. The export performance of the SEZ increased from 5.08 billion USD to 82.35 USD from 2005-06 to 2013-14. The central sponsored SEZs units increased to seven and notified under SEZ Act 2005 increased to 69. The employment generation and investment rate improved significantly. Amidst of growth momentum, SEZs generated several human development events and challenges in India. In this setting the present article will trace the process of the development and its impact on women's development. Cross country references showed mixed facts on the same. Consequently, several sources have been referred to identify the events and challenges in the SEZs in India
