The story of India’s growth and the story of capital market accretion in the last 1 year has been the story of what Adani group is all about. In a short span of time, Adani group has emerged as the most valuable business group in India in terms of market cap. In the process, it also pushed the Tata group and Reliance behind. However, it is not just random gains, but gains to a plan. For instance, Adani targets $1 trillion in market cap at a group level. However, this will also entail the company investing close to $150 billion into its various businesses to create tremendous value at a company level.
