Indian billionaire Gautam Adani’s energy unit, Adani Power, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire a 1,370-megawatt thermal power plant backed by debt-laden GMR Infrastructure. However, the company did not disclose the financial details of the deal.

In a statement, GMR Infrastructure on Thursday said it has entered into a definitive agreement with Adani Power to sell its entire 47.62 per cent stake in GMR Chhattisgarh Energy (GCEL), held by its wholly-owned subsidiary, GMR Generation Assets Limited (GGAL).
