Government’s challenge to Adani getting right to develop state capital’s airport: rejected by Kerala High Court

Facts-
Thiruvananthapuram International Airport is among six such airports for which the Adani group won leases in February 2019 for 50 years. The bids were invited by the Airports Authority of India for a public-private partnership model.

Earlier, the Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation, formed to participate in the bid for the airport’s lease and maintenance, had lost out to Adani Enterprises by a narrow margin of Rs 16 per passenger.

Present Matter-

The state government challenged the Central government decision to lease out the right of operation, management and development of the Thiruvananthapuram international airport to Adani Enterprises Limited.

The aforesaid plea was inspired by an all-party-meeting in the state demanding the withdrawal of the Union Cabinet’s decision.

Held
The Kerala High Court has dismissed the petition
