HC stays tender mandating coal transport through Adani’s port

The Madurai bench of the Madras high court has granted an interim stay on a tender notification issued by the state-owned NLC Tamil Nadu Power Limited (NTPL) that mandated bidders seeking to transport coal from Odisha mines to the power plant in Tuticorin to quote for operations for both Paradip and Dhamra port, a subsidiary of Adani group.

While a division bench of justice N Kirubakaran and justice S S Sundar granted the stay only on the tender that mandates operation through Dhamra, the court stated that NTPL can invite bidders for operations through Paradip.
