Gujarat: Adani creates Super App to Take On Tata and Reliance Jio
Adani Enterprises, Gujarat based, has incubated Adani Digital Labs. Adani Digital Labs, which will develop the super-app in the next few month, will be responsible
Gautam Adani’s nephew Sagar Adani & son Jeet Adani are the chiefs of the digital department
Gautam Adani declared that Adani Digital Labs is the “Ferrari to the digital world.”
Gujarat-based Adani Group joins the race to create a superapp as the battle between Tata Group (Reliance) heats up. Gautam Adani addressed Adani Digital Labs workers (a recently incubated Adani Enterprises subsidiary) and said that Adani Digital Labs should become the “Ferrari”.
Gujarat: Adani stated that Adani received a mockup of the idea of creating super-apps from two members of his business staff. Adani stated that after watching the demo, Adani and two other members of his business team presented Adani with a mockup. He stated that it was obvious that a digital platform-based, integrated approach was needed to harness “unprecedented possibilities” in this sector.
Nitin was named the first employee for the newly-created Digital Labs. He will also be chief digital officer. Digital Labs has been growing steadily since then, employing 78 people. Adani stated that Digital Labs had impressed him. Adani said that Ferrari, the company was expanding into space. Adani Group would continue to be a service provider for the millennials throughout the next 20 year, he added. They will have greater purchasing ability and be more willing spending.
Traditional super apps combine text messaging, messaging gaming, gaming, travel, communications, and more into one single app. With almost all the services we use now being mobile and smartphone prices dropping drastically, I believe every B2C firm will be mobile-driven. Adani lambasted its rival, claiming that many of the most popular app developers are creating applications they don’t like. He stated that WhatsApp does not remind people to pay or Paytm does nothing to remind them to shop.
Adani super app should have a positive influence on all classes. This includes farmers, shopkeepers, students, and others. Gautam, Gautam’s nephew Sagar, will be leading Digital Labs. Jeet Adani is his younger brother. Adani, Gujarat-based has entered the super app marketplace. There has been an increase in the competition to build an influential and user friendly app. Tata Digital (Tata’s digital arm) has been aggressively seeking to acquire majority stakes from startups. Reliance by Mukesh Abani is still trying to add portfolio firms to its super app offerings.
Tata Digital acquired a majority interest in the egroccery marketplace BigBasket. 1Mg was also purchased by Tata Digital. However, its recent investment in Mukesh Banksal’s Curefit showed that it will provide a healthy life for consumers. Justdial purchased a controlling interest in Justdial for an INR 3,497 Cr, Netmeds (and Urban Ladder) to help strengthen its digital ecosystem. Vijay Shekhar Sharma is the leader of Paytm and will be entering the fray for INR 16,600 crore in IPO.

The 1,450-acre park will lie near Sanand’s Virochan Nagagar automobile hub. It will attract investment of Rs.50,000 crore in logistics, transport, and logistics.
MKDas, Additional Chief Secretary to the Chief minister and Industries and Mines Department of Gujarat, and Karan Adani, CEO of APSEZ, signed a MoU in the presence of Chief Miniser Vijay Rupani.
“This park can be connected directly with all the major ports and the Dedicated Freight Coridor. Rupani said the park, which he described as “Atmanirbhar Bharat”, will make Gujarati businesses more competitive internationally. Rupani said it would create indirect and permanent employment for more that 25,000 people.
A dedicated air cargo compound will be built in the park. The runway is 4.6 km. It can handle larger carriers like planes.
Das stated the park would also function as a platform for local import and export markets. “A Rail Freight Terminal”, will also get built. He also stated that this terminal would be connected directly to Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor.
An area of 90 million square feet can be used to store an Air Freight Station that has a capacity for 4.5 tonnes.
The shopping center/business hub will cover a total of 35,000 square feet. In order to guarantee skilled labor, there will also be a skill development center.

Gautam Adani of Gujarat gets into the cement business. He incorporates Adani Cement.
Gautam Adani, who is a successful entrepreneur in the ports-and-airport business, now wants to get into the cement sector. Adani Gujarat Enterprises (his flagship business) announced to stock brokers that Adani Cement is now a wholly owned subsidiary.
Adani Enterprises of Gujarat, which is based in Gujarat, disclosed that Adani Capital has a Rs10 lakh authorised share capital and Rs5 lakh paid up share capital. It said that the new subsidiary now has 50,000 equity securities worth Rs10 each.
The company was established by the Gujarat Registrar of Companies and is currently being operated. It clarified, however, that no revenue has been generated by the company.
Adani Enterprises stated Adani Cement will be a manufacturer, producer, and processor of all types.
Given his rapid rise in wealth, Adani’s diversification effort is not surprising. He is a business mogul of 58 and has now added $43 billion to that wealth in 2021. His port–to-power conglomerate already owns interests such as FMCG, power transmission and airport management.
Adani’s gamble on cement could have been encouraged in part because of central government’s push towards capital expenditure being revived. Capital expenditure is often directly proportional the sector’s performance. Adani, Gujarat-based Adani may see promising futures for the industry if the pandemic goes away.
This is likely to cause disruption in the India cement industry.
Adani from Gujarat could use the best practices of his port- and airports company. He holds a significant market share. Adani in Gujarat would have to make aggressive acquisitions in Gujarat in order to grow the cement business.
It will be interesting to observe how Adani taps into the financial potential of his new subsidiary in much the same way as he did for power transmission and gas arms. Adani Total Gas, Adani Transmission and Adani Enterprises, have all posted impressive performances on stock markets, adding wealth to billionaire Adani.

Gautam Adani from Gujarat rises.
Gujarati native Gautam Adani is a master at managing crises. He was captured and held hostage at Mumbai’s Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
Adani has risen to the top of India’s wealthiest thanks to his business acumen as well as his ability overcame obstacles. Adani, a Gujarati-based entrepreneur, has seen his company grow even though the country was in deep recession. His conglomerate secured foreign partners and investors, as well a new opportunity.
His shares have increased in almost all his companies, including his ports. Adani Green Energy Ltd. (Gujarat) saw its share value increase sixfold during the past year following a record $6Billion-plus solar-power contract. This is another step towards Adani Green Energy Ltd.’s goal to be the largest renewable energy producer by 2025.
“The market is having FOMO syndrome when it comes to Adani stocks,” said Sanjiv Bhasin, director at investment-management firm IIFL Securities Ltd. “Its businesses are aligned to the current central-government vision. This conglomerate will continue to enjoy a smooth transition for at least five-to six more years.
Adani, India’s richest person is second only to Mukesh Abani. In headlines, Adani is also featured for his partnership in Silicon Valley with top Silicon Valley names. Bloomberg Billionaires Index says that Adani has a net worth of $21.1 billion, which is higher than Ambani’s.
Adani, Gujarati, dropped out college to try his luck at the early 1980s Mumbai diamond industry. Adani returned home to Gujarat to take over his brother’s plastics manufacturing business. He founded 1988 Adani Enterprises Ltd. to become the group’s foremost commodities trader. A decade later, he opened the port of Mundra along the Arabian Sea coastline. This was India’s first privatized port operator.
It is now the biggest non-state owned power producer of the country, and it has experienced international success. Australia continues to be troubled by the negative publicity about his Carmichael-based thermal coal plant. He received approval for the project in January after a decade-long fight with regulators.
Adani, like many entrepreneurs, chose industries where there was little competition, and that the government was trying develop. The 58-year-old tycoon still views “nationbuilding” as a key element of his strategy. This aligns with the vision of Prime Minister NarendraModi.

Adani To Build Transmission Lines In Gujarat And Rajasthan To Facilitate Renewables.
Gujarat: Adani Transmission Ltd, has received two letters of intent (LoI), which will allow it to improve the country’s transmission network as a result of rising renewable additions.
PFC Consulting Limited issued their first LoI. PFC Consulting Limited has issued the first LoI. The transmission project will all be built, owned and operated in Rajasthan. Bikaner – Khetri Transmission will be approximately 480 km long and run on a 765kV line. It combines a transmission scheme with a transmission system. This project was built to support long-term applications in the Rajasthan Solar Zone.
Adani Transmission, Gujarat-based, completed this project. Adani Transmission estimates its cumulative transmission network to consist of approximately 13.943 km of transmission lines and a 23280 MVA conversion potential.
There are about 11,347 circuit kilometers and 18330 MVA. This includes Mumbai-based benchmark distribution network which serves Mumbai consumers. The company has plans for constructing 20,000 km of transmission line in 2022. In the meantime, it is focusing on building supporting infrastructure to generate renewable electricity in the country.
Gautam Adani from Gujarat: The man who built India’s infrastructure empire worth Rs 47,000 Crores.
Gautam Adani built in Gujarat an infrastructure empire that was worth Rs 47,000 cr within 15 year. This period coincides well with Narendra Modi’s government stewardship. Parallels can even be drawn with Dhirubhai Ambani, who died in 2012.
It was Narendra Modi’s moment. Gautam Adani made it important. Modi was attempting to make a political statement biennially at the ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ summit.
He didn’t wish to be identified.” He did not want to be identified.”Companies were being invited to announce large investments in state.Everyone expected Reliance and the Ruias to announce large investments, but Adani surprised everyone with an announcement of a Rs 15,000 crore investment.
Adani Group, Gujarat-based, was able again to make another Modi moment matter a decade later.
Gautam Adani, the man who may become India’s prime minister in 2014, is often mentioned alongside his alleged closeness and business empire. Adani’s firm was handed a Rs 200 crore penalty by the Central ministry. The incident was covered in the mass media.
Both share many similarities.
There’s also a “then”.The rapid rise in Gautam Adani’s turnover, which rose from Rs 3.300 crore in 2000, to Rs 47,000 crore by 2013, has led to parallels with Dhirubhai Amani, a Gujarati who redefined entrepreneurship within a semi-open, government-controlled economy.Dwijendra Tripathi (retired professor of business history at IIM Ahmedabad) says that Adani can only be compared to Reliance. Adani is also known as “the other Big A”, according to an infrastructure advisory firm official. Gautam Adani wasn’t able to complete the detailed ET questionnaire he sent on July 22, however.
Adani, just like Ambani and a school dropout is an entrepreneur who has been in business for a long time.
Gujarat: Adani has built one of India’s largest infrastructure firms since post-liberalization. This feat was possible in 25 years. Adani Enterprises from Gujarat is India’s largest coal importer.
Adani relied solely on debt for capital spending. Ambani supported and fed this equity cult, and even though he was smart and intelligent, Adani’s rise coincided with a period of rising politicians’ spending in elections,” said Michael Walton (a Harvard lecturer of Government). He is currently studying the simultaneous growth of infrastructure firms in Andhra Pradesh and systemic corruption.
Modi and Adani have a long history of Gujarati business roots. Adani is now an important player in the political economic calculus. He wants to keep his Rs 47,000 Crore infrastructure empire intact.
Adani rose to prominence in Gandhidham. The Gandhidham port is six hours away from Ahmedabad. Adani made this India’s largest port. However, it was closed three months ago. Adani’s neighbor, Mundra became India’s largest port. Adani called Adani from Mumbai in order to help him establish a new manufacturing company. Adani needed 20 tonnes of plastic-film per month. India’s main producer, IPCL at the time could only supply two tonnes.
Adani saw a potential opportunity and started to import plastic granules from Kandla.
Adani also collected LoAs (letters d’autorisation) from small plastic manufacturers and ordered in bulk.Adani also partnered with the Gujarat State Export Corporation (a state PSU that supplies inputs to small businesses).Adani would consolidate the requests and place an order under GSEC’s name,” says Virendra Subtaria, a former employee at GSEC who was close to him at that time.GSEC was a government entity and therefore did not require LoAs.Adani’s business grew at an incredible rate.According to the agent, Adani’s orders increased from 100 MTs (metric tons) to a total of 40,000 MT shiploads between 1988 and 1992.He started to import chemicals and petroleum products.He began to export and was a well-known trading house, which helped reduce the need for bank guarantee.The young entrepreneur was noticed by politicians as well in the early 1990s.Ahmedabad-based sociologist, who spoke on the topic t.
Ahmedabad-based social scientist, who spoke anonymously, stated that Adani was close politicians like the late Chimanbhai (and Keshubhai) Ptel in mid-nineties.
Gujarat: Adani made the choice to expand beyond trading in 1997-1998, and invest in infrastructure like power plants and ports. Adani began his first project with Mundra port. The land was donated to Adani by the Chimanbhai Panel government from 1991-92. Adani built it on the Kutch land.
Liberalisation was underway. PN Roh Chowdhury (ex-head of Gujarat Maritime Board), who now works for Adani Gujarat Enterprises as an environmental advisor, says that Gujarat had opened more ports to capitalise.
These are the parallels to Ambani. Tripathi relates that Dhirubhai first worked in Aden (Yemen), which was in 1958. Then he entered the importexport business. He built a (textile factory). This was his core for future expansion. It was the only way to power, petrochemicals, gas, and then on to Adicorp Enterprises.
With the 1999 mineral landing at Mundra, Adani tried his hand in coal trade. The port was also home the special economic zones (SEZ) which were established nearby in 2003-04. The SEZ allowed companies to set up shop there and ship via Mundra. Adani began to explore the possibility of using thermal power generated by industrial and coal customers.
Gujarat: Mundra Adani Thermal Energy Project
The total capacity of the plant is 4620 MW. It comprises 4 subcritical units of each 330 MW and 5 supracritical units of each 660 MW.
Adani Power, located in Gujarat, proposed to triple the plant’s capacity to 1,000 MW. In May 2016, the union minister’s expert advisory panel (EAC) rejected this proposal. It was close to an ecologically sensitive creek, estuary, and nine villages, which also have schools, hospitals, and reserves forests. EAC suggested Adani as an alternative site.
Adani Power Mundra likely to seek bankruptcy protection
Adani claims it is unable or unwilling to pay the power purchase agreement (PPA) for the plant, due to rising prices of coal. Adani Power of Gujarat attempted selling a 51-percent stake in the facility to Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam.GUVNL is a government-owned utility that holds power purchase contracts worth 2000 MW. Lenders to Mundra stopped the sale. Adani Power Mundra stated, that it will likely apply for bankruptcy protection if Mundra is not sold by GUVNL. The plant could not service its debts at 37% of its plant load factor during the first quarter 2018. Adani Mining claimed that Adani Mining was reliant on its Carmichael mining operation in Australia.
Adani suggested Gujarat renegotiate it’s agreement to allow Adani to sell its power at a higher cost because the Indonesian coke price, which Adani used, had increased. Adani Enterprises possessed 74% of Indonesia’s coal import company shares in 2013. This meant that the company was making profits from high coal price.
Avoid bankruptcy by passing the cost to power users
Adani’s request in April 2017 to have a new price argument for power was turned down by the Supreme Court. Adani was given permission by Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam to sell power at increased prices to Adani, which allowed Adani then to increase the tariffs to consumers. Scroll.in explains that the Gujarat government issued an order that effectively relieved Mundra’s power plant of insolvency proceedings.
Project gets CDM certification
Unit 5 in the Phase III Mundra project used supercritical technology. This technology is more efficient due to higher boiler pressures. The Clean Development Mechanism was established to grant certification for Phase III under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This makes it the first supercritical plant in India to use the a href=”https://www.gem.wiki/Supercritical” title=”Supercritical”>supercritical technology. The technology achieves greater efficiency via higher boiler pressures, temperatures, and temperatures. According to Stockholm Environmental Institute CDM Credits can only be used to support more efficient power technology if they have not been developed. Although the transition to supercritical technology from subcritical is not yet complete, it’s being made. ”
Adani or the Great Barrier Reef can’t be trusted
Since 2011, Mundra has had 70% of its coal import requirements met.
Adani is proposing the Carmichael Coal Project to Australia, to export coal for plants in India. It would include an open-cut as well as underground coal mine. A rail link of 189km would transport the coal between Abbot Point and the Galilee basin. This area is near the Great Barrier Reef.
