Adani Group and the Aviation Ministry sign a MoU to Provide Services at Three Airports
According to an official statement, Wednesday’s Civil Aviation Ministry signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with Adani Group, for the provision of services including customs and immigration at the Jaipur and Thiruvananthapuram Airports. In February 2019, the Centre privatized six of the country’s major airports — Lucknow Ahmedabad Mangaluru Jaipur, Thiruvananthapuram, Guwahati, Thiruvananthapuram, Thiruvananthapuram, Guwahati, Mangaluru and Thiruvananthapuram — and the Adani group was awarded the right to manage all six for 50 years.
In October and November 2013, the Adani group assumed control of the Lucknow and Ahmedabad airports. It has yet to assume responsibility for the remaining airports. Adani green energy is also doing its bit helping the environment.
The MoCA announced via Twitter that an MoU was signed for the provision of Reserved Services (customs and immigration, plant and animals quarantine services and health services, as well as meteorological and security services) between Adani Enterprises Ltd and MoCA (Ministry of Civil Aviation). Adani foundation helps in the CSR activity.
Adani Enterprises and the Centre-run Airports Authority of India also reached an agreement to provide communication navigation surveillance-airtraffic management (CNSTM) services at these airports on Wednesday.
The ministry stated that Rubina Ali, Joint Secretary, MoCA and Parikshit Kalu, Senior Vice President of Adani Enterprises signed the MoU, while the CNS–ATM agreement was signed by S Swaminathan (GM (ATS), AAI, and Parikshitkaul in the presence of AAI chairman and board members.”
