Default Want to meet at the SEEPZ, Mumbai?

Hello,

I have started this thread for the information of fellow T-BHP-ians.

SEEPZ is a SEZ (Special Econnomic Zone) in Mumbai & Jewellery exporters, Software & Electronic Hardware companies are based inside it. Almost 40% yes, 40% of India jewellery exports are handled from SEEPZ, Mumbai. It is a fairly large (111 acres) & well-maintained premises with 150+ companies. We also have a beautifully maintained lake (Deval Talao) inside SEEPZ

The reason for starting the thread is recently I came to know of a fellow T-BHP-ian (Sha09mel) who is based on the same floor where I work, which was pretty astonishing for both of us.

I request other T-BHP members working inside SEEPZ please come forth & introduce themselves.

Thanks,

Hi Jignesh,

I work at Seepz too! My office is at the Seepz++ Towers near Gate 3. Good to know about fellow members in the neighborhood.

Although SEEPZ is well maintained, the lack of good eateries and the silly security procedures are a big let down. Also, the traffic scene is a mess during peak hours.

Hello Trek,

Thank you for your response & good to know you too are working very close. I (infact we, myself & Sha09mel) are based very close to the lake (Deval Talao) & Gate no. 2.

Regarding eateries, luckily I work with a software company where we have good canteen & variety of food options so generally do not need to go out. But yes for parties & celebrations are need to travel to Tunga or Sun City in MIDC, Andheri.

As far as security procedure is comcerned, SEEPZ is a SEZ (Special Economic Zone) so all the goods manufactured here are meant for export & hence are duty free & should not be sold in local market. Also MMTC (Minerals & Metal Trading Corporation of India) has its wareshouse inside SEEPZ, which handles precious metals so security needs to be tight. Also as most of the units here are Jewellery manufactures, there has to be a control over who enters inside SEEPZ.

Thanks,

Sun City has recently opened a new restaurant inside SEEPZ, near Gate 3, you might wanna give it a try someday.

Hello Trek,

Yes. I have seen that Sun City outlet in SEEPZ near Gate No. 3. let us see if there are sizable number of T-BHP-ians in SEEPZ, then we can schedule a meet there someday. By the way, have you been to this new Sun City inside SEEPZ?

For your information, I pass through Gate No. 3 everyday, as I stay at Malad & travel via JVLR.

Thanks,

Yes, I have been to the cafeteria that they have opened alongside the fine dining restaurant. The food and ambiance is good.
I stay at Kandivali, we travel on the same route. Maybe we can meet up someday.

Hi,

Another Seepz person. Recently shifted my work location from Thane to Seepz, work at Intersil building (TCS).

Lets plan a lunch meet sometime. I am not aware of the Sun City in Seepz. Is the Seepz gate 3 same as the Seepz North Gate? I enter through that gate everyday.

And yeah, some of the security protocols are quite painful. I have to get a Car Pass issued and i'm told that no new car passes will be issued till 15th April. Till then it's the bus/rick for me.

Hello Superbee,

Good to know you too are working in SEEPZ. To your surprise, I am working for the same company & based in SDF VII.

Yes. North gate of SEEPZ is Gate No. 3. Have you not seen Sun City yet? It is very close to Intersil building. Infact we came there for Lunch on Friday. Currently the scheme is Rs. 199 per person for unlimited Buffet Lunch.

Thanks,

Yup! The security at Seepz is quite a harassment for the first timers but people get use to it after sometime. This is mainly due to the numerous jewelry manufacturing units based inside.
You could ask your company to issue a daily car pass until they provide you with the yearly pass.

Hello LSP,

For your information, I am currently based in IT9 at SDF VII. So what made you move from Mumbai to Delhi?

Was it Location Transfer by choice or by force?

Thanks,

I guess until recently IT9 was occupied by the kotak fellows.

Anyway, the transfer was by force, but the other way around. I landed in Delhi upon my return from onsite in 2007 and refused to come down to Mumbai. They had to transfer me after a few months.

Make that two!

Regarding the daily car pass, I still don't understand why wouldn't the security personnel at the gate use a bar code scanner instead of manually writing down the car pass number in the diary. The driver needs to park the car ahead, walk back down the narrow road and collect the pass, its a crude way of working.

Also, the dumbest architect award needs to be given to the person who designed Gate 3, how can you possibly have pedestrians and cars crossing each other?!

Guys,

Anyone aware of the gymnasium which opened in Seepz few months earlier? I tried locating it but there are no sign boards or banners.

Thanks.
