The Kerala High Court on Monday rejected the petition filed against the lease of the Thiruvananthapuram Airport given to the Adani Group. The Kerala government filed a petition against this lease. The government had filed a petition in August. The central government had leased Thiruvananthapuram Airport to Adani Enterprises.
After the petition was filed, an all-party meet was called in the state against this decision, which demanded the withdrawal of this decision of the Union Cabinet.
Earlier, Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation also bid for the auction of lease and maintenance of the airport. However, the Adani Group made the lease with the highest bid. The GMR group was ranked third in the auction.
Please tell that the Adani Group was given a lease of six similar facilities including Thiruvananthapuram Airport. The group got their lease for 50 years in the month of February. The Airport Authority of India had bid under a public-private partnership operation model prepared on the basis of fees charged per domestic passenger.
