Other than these current housing projects Sunil Mantri plans to develop an SEZ in Nagpur. He commented, “We plan to market our Nagpur SEZ as an affordable IT SEZ. We will fix a rental of Rs 16 per sq ft and Rs 1,600 for long-lease”. Sunil Mantri plans to make offices cost-effective by cutting down electricity consumption, and giving emphasis on Natural light and air-circulation. Thus it will be an eco-friendly SEZ. About 40 lakh sq.ft would be developed, the SEZ would have only two or three story buildings which would further reduce costs.“Our experience is that if you provide all amenities at lower costs, companies will come to you," he said, citing the example of an American company that bought space in its IT park in Kolhapur.
