Adani Power Ltd (APL), a part of the diversified Adani Group, is the leading private-sector thermal power producer in India.

The proposed transaction involves the acquisition of 100 per cent equity share capital of Coastal Energen Pvt Ltd (CEPL) by the acquirers (Dickey Alternative Investment Trust (DAIT) and APL), according to a release by fair trade regulator CCI.
