However, As published by hindustantimes an article dated Oct 21, 2015 “Adani reps visited Pakistan to discuss 4000 MW power deal”.
Representatives of India’s Adani Enterprises visited Pakistan last year to discuss the sale of up to 4,000 MW of electricity but the proposal has stalled against the backdrop of heightened tensions between the two countries.
Pakistan’s power minister Khawaja Asif, a close aide of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, told the Senate or upper house of Parliament on October 13 that representatives of Adani Enterprises Ltd (AEL) visited the country in April 2014 to “discuss matters relating to export of power”.
In a written reply to a question, Asif said: “AEL submitted draft to Ministry of Water & Power proposing export of 500 – 800 MW power in 2-3 years as a starting, phase up to 3500 – 4000 MW capacity ultimately.
“No further progress is made in the regard.”. So currently y Adani is true they are not doing any export of poser supply to Pakistan.
