"The Power & Transmission sector has seen tremendous progress over the last two decades. Today, Government initiatives such as Saubhagya and the emphasis on renewables have significantly expanded electricity access.

"The next two decades promises to usher in new opportunities for the sector based on the resurgence of the economy post the pandemic and a positive investor outlook. ATL is fully equipped to co-create a future in line with the needs of a nation at the cusp of global renewable energy leadership," Gautam Adani, Chairman Adani Group, said in the statement.

ATL's two acquisitions (APTL and WKTL) during the year will bolster its pan-India presence, consolidating further its position as the largest private-sector transmission company in India and moving it closer to its goal of 20,000 ckt (circuit) km of transmission lines by 2022, Anil Sardana, MD & CEO, Adani Transmission said.
