Big relief for Adani group, SC sets aside NGT order on Adani Hazira Port
In a relief to the Adani Group, the Supreme Court has set aside the National Green Tribunal’s (NGT) order cancelling the environmental clearance granted to Adani’s port in Hazira, Surat. In 2016, the NGT had set aside the 2013 environmental clearance of the port following a petition against Adani Hazira Port Pvt Ltd by fishermen group — Hazira Macchimar Samiti.
Adani Group said in a release on Wednesday that following the Supreme Court order, the environmental clearance granted to Adani Hazira Port Pvt Ltd stands restored. Image source: Zeenews.com
