                                                                       POSITRA
                                                         SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE

CONCEPT NOTE: AUTOMOBILE COMPONENT PARK AT POSITRA SEZ.


A BACKGROUND

Positra Special Economic Zone is being developed in Jamnagar District in the State of
Gujarat. The location is about 12 kms from Dwaraka and is about 120        kms from
Jamnagar. The project is being developed over an area of 250 Sq. Kms. in an
integrated manner with all components of infrastructure being developed to
international standards. The project is being developed in a Joint Venture format with
the Govermnent of Gujarat. Well known entities from Singapore and Japan are also
expected to be partners in the project. A CD presentation on the project is enclosed.

SEZ - A CONCEPT

The Minister of Commerce, and Industry, Government of India announced the creation
of Special Economic Zones in the Exim Policy announced on 31' March 2000 and further
widened the benefits available to the units of the SEZ through policy announcements on
31" March 2001. It is apparent that the Govermnent of India is looking to enhance
export-led growth through the medium of Special Economic Zones, learning from the
Chinese experience where Special Economic Zones have been the predominant driving
factor for the growth of the economy. I am enclosing herewith a brochure issued by
the Ministry of Commerce and Industry for your perusal in this regard.

SEA KING INFRASTRUCTURE LIMITED (SK[L)

SKIL has been the pioneer in development of various infrastructure projects in India
and has the promoter of the Positra Special Economic Zone. 1 am also enclosing
herewith a brochure on the Group for your information.

INTEGRATED INDUSTRIAL PARKS

The unique feature of the master plan at Positra is the development of dedicated
industrial parks for certain categories of industries.      The logic is to ensure that
specialized requirements of a particular industry are made available within the Dark and
are made
                                                                             POSITRA
                                                               SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE


accessible to all the units within the park so that certain economics in creation of
common facilities such as training facilities, testing facilities, scientific facilities etc. can
be achieved for the benefits of the industries. Grouping of industries will also benefit in
areas such as installation of common effluent treatment plant, logistic support Facilities
etc. It is our endeavor to work with industry associations or leading players in
industries in development of such parks so that this specific expertise available in
industry is incorporated in the development of the park-.

Keeping the above in mind we have already identified certain segments of the
industries such as textile, agricultural products, computer hardware, consumer
electronics etc. and are working with industry associations and leaders in developing
these parks in Positra.

AUTO COMPONENT PARK

We are aware of the potential the auto component industry has in India and specifically
its potential for exports. We acknowledge the predominant role ACMA plays in
promoting the auto-parts industry. We are in the process of evaluating the scope and
feasibility of establishing an integrated auto components park at Positra SEZ. In this
regard we would like your involvement and support in developing a dedicated auto
component park.

The Automobile Component Park could be developed through a Special Purpose Vehicle
(SPV) to be formed by GPPIL and a strategic partner. We would request your
suggestion regarding the strategic partner. Would ACMA or any of its member be
interested?

While GPPIL would provide the land and the infrastructure for the Park, the strategic
partner would be expected to provide the necessary industry expertise. The financial
structuring could be mutually agreed upon.
