What Happened: The company’s plan was revealed by Gujarat’s Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel in the Gujarat Assembly. Answering a question in the assembly, Patel informed that the company looked to get 93,900 square metres of land in Khodiyar village in Ahmedabad and Dantali village in Gandhinagar.

The company proposed exchanging the same land area it holds in these areas. The company has also extended a proposal to acquire 202 square metres of non-arable land in Jaspur village in Gandhinagar.

milestone from last year of 354 days.” The company added that an increase in cargo volume handled at ports is indicative of the country's economy picking up.

The company’s CEO and Gautam Adani‘s son Karan Adani said that "the improvement in cargo volumes is testimony to the faith that our customers have in the company.”
