The story evolves around Port and it became one of the largest Ports in the world.

Mr. Gautam Adani saw the opportunity and the inefficiency of the government ports with long waiting of ships, he decided to go all alone not only to construct the work-class port but also to operate the port and the world-class Mundra port was born.

The first birth was ready for the operation on 7th of October 1998 when the first ship carrying Edible oil called m.t. Alpha 2 arrived from Singapore and berthed at Mundra.

India was growing and there was a huge requirement of infrastructure Mundra Port on the other hand was adding jettys and construction of world-class infrastructure. By 2001, the Adani Group had signed a concession agreement with the government of Gujarat to Develop Mundra Port as one of the best and international-class ports in Gujarat.

The rail connectivity was established with Mundra Port and it was connected to the National Railway Grid of the country. From here there was no looking back. Mundra port was blessed with a natural draught of 15 Mtrs which allowed large-size vessels with 75,000 MT of cargo on board the ship to start coming into India. No other Ports in India could berth such huge ships and it was only Mundra Port who not only could berth such huge ships.

Mundra Port started initially with Agri products but once connected with railways it started handling all the major commodities. By that time it also constructed the special facilities for Handling containers at Mundra.

Container handling was done in India but the country was not equipped with suitable machinery to handle containers correctly. Mundra Port for the first time in the History of India imported Container quay cranes which were super Post Panamax Galaxy cranes from Noel Germany. Special economic zones play a pivotal role in the country’s economy and Mudra Port established the country’s largest special economic zone with direct Port connectivity.

Mundra has emerged as a shining example of a city with a port-driven economy in India: Adani Foundation played a pivotal role in developing small towns and villages nearby with the construction of schools, medical dispensaries, providing ambulances, giving support to the local arts and crafts, sponsoring students for higher studies and developing scholarships for the students who could excel in their lives with better education.

Ever since the Adani Group set foot in Mundra, the group has not only transformed the region by establishing a world-class port but has also made significant contributions in terms of employment, education, and social infrastructure for the benefit of Mundra and its surrounding villages. This concerted effort has resulted in a multitude of positive outcomes for the local community.

CSR investments in educational institutions and programs have improved the overall educational landscape in Mundra, enabling residents to acquire quality education and enhancing their long-term prospects.

In parallel, the Adani Foundation’s dedication to developing social infrastructure has had a profound impact on the quality of life in Mundra and its nearby communities.
