    The Kerala High Court on Tuesday declined to stay the further proceedings in leasing out Thiruvananthapuram international airport to Adani Enterprises.

    The Kerala High Court on Tuesday declined to stay the further proceedings in leasing out Thiruvananthapuram international airport to Adani Enterprises.
    Considering an application by the Kerala government seeking the stay, the court adjourned the case for detailed hearing.
    Directing the government to produce the documents before September 9, the bench said a detailed hearing in the matter
    will be held on September 15.
    In its application, the state government said unless the stay is granted, it will be put to irreparable injury and hardship.
    The state government filed the application in the court,
    after an all-party-meeting in the state demanded withdrawal of
    the Union Cabinet's decision last week to lease out the
    airport to Adani Enterprises.
    Last year, the high court had dismissed the petition challenging the decision, terming it as not maintainable under Article 226 of the Constitution.
    The state government then filed an appeal before the Supreme Court against the high court order.
    The apex court set aside the judgement of the high court
    and the matter was remanded back to it for a decision on
    merit.
    Referring to the top court directive, the state government said, "all further proceedings in relation to grant of lease with regard to operation, management and development of Thiruvananthapuram international airport to Adani Enterprises Ltd, is to be stayed pending disposal of the aforementioned writ petition."
