TTZ was created for 50 km around the monument which banned setting up of new industrial units, ordered by the Supreme Court.
Apart from hotels, Agra can now have manufacturing units in 31 industrial categories, including cloth, rubber, medicines, paint, food processing, dairy, liquid soap, detergent, starch, toothpaste, and talcum powder.
