Tata Sons Chairman N Chandrasekaran will head the Maharashtra State Economic Advisory Council (EAC), which also includes Karan Adani and Anant Ambani.
Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd CEO Karan Adani, son of Gautam Adani, is battling stock manipulation and fraud charges at Adani Group raised by Hindenburg Research. The Adani Group has denied the allegations, which have created a political storm and eroded its net worth.
Karan Adani has been designated as the expert on ports and SEZ sector in the 21-member body. “The Economic Advisory Council is an independent body to advise the state government on economic and other related issues,” the GR said.
The council has domain experts from sectors including textiles, pharma, ports, special economic zones, banking, agriculture, industry, engineering and manufacturing.
