Shares of Adani Enterprises rose by nearly five per cent after an Australian court on Tuesday rejected a bid by environmentalists to stop Adani Group's $16.5 billion controversy-hit coal mine project. The stock gained 4.53 per cent to end at Rs 78.50 on BSE.
During the day, it surged 6.99 per cent to Rs 80.35. At NSE, shares of the company climbed 4.66 per cent to settle at Rs 78.55. Buying was also seen in Adani Power and Adani Transmission that gained 1.50 per cent and 1.06 per cent, respectively on BSE.
The mega project in Queensland's Galilee Basin, which would become Australia's largest coal mine, was challenged by Conservation group Coast and Country in Brisbane Land Court on the ground that it would affect groundwater, climate change and biodiversity, including black-throated finches, an endangered species.
