    What kind of properties does MIDC offer ?
MIDC offers a variety of properties. Primarily, MIDC offers developed plots in various industrial areas. After acquiring land, MIDC creates high quality infrastructure including roads, water supply systems street lighting, and in some cases, common facilities buildings which may offered to commercial establishments to serve the needs of the industrial units.

In many industrial areas, MIDC has specially earmarked commercial and residential zones in addition to the main industrial zone. Some industrial areas also have a common effluent treatment plant (CETP). These CETPs are usually created by MIDC and handed over to the local industry association to operate.

Apart from developed plots, MIDC also offers built up spaces. The built up spaces are tailor made to meet needs of specifics industry sectors such as Information Technology, Textiles (Hosiery, Knitwear), Leather, etc. Such built up spaces are available in specific locations.

A third category of properties offered by MIDC is the industrial sheds. These are normally targeted for the small scale sector and hence are of small sizes of about 1000 to 2000 sq.ft. These sheds are available in select locations.
    In addition to whatever I pay to acquire the plot, is there any recurring fees / charges / taxes I have to pay?
In addition to the amount you pay to MIDC for acquiring the plot, you may have to pay the following:
Property taxes that may be levied by the local body namely, the Municipal Corporation or the Municipal Council or the Gram Panchayat. These taxes vary depending upon the local body involved.
Water Charges are payable to MIDC based on your actual metered consumption.
Service charges payable to MIDC for maintenance and upkeep of the industrial infrastructure are included in the water bill.
Electricity charges are payable to MSEB based on your connected load and metered energy consumption.
CETP usage charges (if applicable) levied by the local industry association which runs the CETP.
Please note that the above are standard charges payable by all industrial units in MIDC industrial areas. In addition, there may be some charges/levies/taxes payable by you to various agencies depending upon the business activity that you conduct.
 The State Of Maharashtra
 
    I am aware that Maharashtra is the most industrialized State and has the most investor friendly business environment. What are the main strengths of the State?
You are right. The State of Maharashtra offers the best in terms of investment climate. All details are available in the section “Maharashtra Overview” on this website
    What are the Fiscal and non-fiscal incentives that the State Government offers for setting up a unit in Maharashtra?
The Industrial Policy of Maharashtra 2001 contains a Package Scheme of Incentives (PSI). These along with some incentives available outside the PSI are listed below.
    I observe that there are various zones or regions like A,B,C, etc. What do they signify?
Under the Industrial Policy 2001, the Government of Maharashtra has classified all the talukas of the State into 6 categories, namely, A,B,C,D, D+ and No industry district (NID).
These categories indicate the level of development in that taluka. A is the most developed and D+ the least developed. The purpose of this classification is to enable a more balanced and distributed industrial development of the State. The level of incentives available in D will be more attractive than that available in C and so on.
