The Adani Group today dismissed Congress’ allegation of charging exorbitant electricity tariff in Gujarat, saying it sold power to the state at a “very attractive” price of Rs 2.65 per unit over the last four years.
Adani Power Ltd sells electricity to Gujarat under long term power purchase agreements, entered through competitive bidding and duly approved by Regulatory Commission, a group spokesperson said.
