A division bench of the Gujarat High Court on Monday held that around 20-22 units at Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) were functioning illegally without any environmental clearance (EC).

The court ordered the Central government to decide on granting EC to the SEZ afresh within one month while taking in mind the latest judgment of the high court. With this, the court also ordered closure of all the units inside APSEZ.
