"The upcoming SEZ has a potential of more than 1.5 million square feet of leasable area and is expected to get completed in the next two year's time just before the sunset for SEZ concessions in March 2020. The current SEZ and this up coming one would together have a potential to offer more than 50,000 IT jobs at Blue-Ridge township at Hinjawadi," Shrikant Paranjape, Chairman, Paranjape Group of Companies, told ET.

The construction of the earlier second phase with leasable area of more than 1.5 million square feet of the first SEZ was also completed in two years.
