The State Government has the power to exempt a particular industry from this Central law: Industrial Employment Standing Orders Act.
It is felt that states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, AP, Orissa, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana had granted such exemption out of which Karnataka has already issued orders for submission of draft standing orders within Dec, 2012 for certification by Mar, 2013.
Most of the SEZs do not have to comply with this law.
You may check the status for UP.
The State Govt. might have declared the SEZ come under essential services and thus there can’t be any strike.
For your academic interest you may go thru IT policy of UP of year 2004 and UP draft IT policy of 2012 for details and contact officials like Inspector Under SE Act, ALC/DLC, DEVELOPMENTCOMMISSIONER etc :
Some relaxations from sections in SE Act of UP e.g. opening and closing time might have been granted.
With 133 functioning SEZs and
around 600 SEZs having been formally approved.The concern arises whether the lax labor-law attitude demanded by the IT companies is going to affect workers from other industries as well.
There has been along felt need for strong, well meaning, well knit union for IT employees.

The proposal to forge a union for IT workers has now come from the Centre for Indian Trade Unions (CITU) -- the trade union wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) -- the largest Left party in the country.
West Bengal Information Technology Services Association (WBITSA): This union is floated by CITU (Centre of Indian Trade Unions- the trade union wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist)- the ruling party in West Bengal).
"A union for IT workers is the urgent need of the hour. I would call the IT professionals 'the labourers of the information age.' They toil long hours; they work at night; and some of them still get meager salaries. So a labour union for them would help fight for their rights," CITU president M K Pandhe told………..
"It is not going to be easy. Already, we have begun the process to hold consultations with many senior IT employees in places like Kolkata [ Images ], Bangalore, Chennai and Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram). We do hope to establish a proper union soon," Pandhe pointed out.
Left leaders say there is also already tremendous backing from the Union of Network International, a global alliance of 900 trade unions, to forge an IT industry workers union in India.
However, a number of organisations for IT professionals now exist at the state level in Hyderabad (in Andhra Pradesh) and Bangalore (in Karnataka [ Images ]).
"Yes, there is an urgent need for a labour law exclusively for the IT industry. It is the one sector that is booming across India, and we need to frame a legislation for IT workers. We are going to take up the issue with the Manmohan Singh [ Images ] government soon," said Community Party of India national secretary D Raja.
