NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be false.
We could not find any news report corroborating the above claim.
Most of the links given in the post were inaccessible. Some links even lead to a warning, stating that it is dangerous.
Social media handles of Gautam Adani and Adani Group have also not highlighted any such announcements.
