“The ability to incubate, innovate and scale effectively and rapidly has been a defining philosophy of Adani Enterprises and we continue to learn and further improve this model.

“The combination of our confidence in this business model, and our faith in India’s growth story is demonstrated through the investments we are continuing to make in additional infrastructure sectors that are critical to nation building,” Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani said.

Further, he said that the move into roads and water infrastructure, data center parks, and airports, including the addition of the Mumbai International Airport and the Navi Mumbai International Airport, “provides us with a transformational platform that will help us create several strategic and growth-based adjacencies for our other businesses”.
