STP scheme is a 100% export oriented scheme for the development and export of computer software/hardware using data communication links or in the form of physical media including export of professional services.
This scheme is unique in its nature as it focuses on one product/sector i.e. computer software. The scheme integrates the concept of 100% Export Oriented Units (EOUs) and Export Processing Zones (EPZs) of the Government of India and the concept of Science Parks/Technology Parks as operating elsewhere in the world. The unique feature of STP scheme is the provision of Single-Point Contact Services for the member units enabling them to conduct export operation at a place commensurate with international practices.
The STPI acts as the front end on behalf of the Government of India to take care of all the statutory needs like project approval, import approval, bonding, export certification etc. It also acts as a resource center for the member computer software-exporting units by offering general infrastructural facilities like ready to use built-up space, centralized computing facilities and High Speed Data Communications (HSDC) facilities.
