Measuring Quality of Life (QoL) in Fringe Area with Large Scale Infrastructural Project- Mihan
Abstract: Special economic zone (SEZ) is a major activity which has started initialising recently. Large scale Industrial zones are planned by the government adjacent to the metropolitan cities in order to encourage development. Essentially large junk of lands are acquired for such projects. Predominantly agricultural land of private ownership are acquired by using legal tools and by paying minimum compensation. Also the villages in the project areas are shifted near to these larg [e Industrial zones. The population of these villages undergo a series of changes, at economical, cultural, social and occupational levels. Besides this, the lack of skills (which are needed for sustaining in the industrialized area) also adversely affects the local population. This type of Industrialization also changes the social fabric of the country at macro and micro level in many ways. Typically, resulting into inferior quality of life for workers, and rapid degrading continuity with the past social fabric.
