The flight 6E-361, operated with an A320 aircraft, was coming from Mumbai.
The plane landed safely at 1921 hours and all passengers are safe, Ahmedabad Airport Director Manoj Gangal said in a statement.
However, an IndiGo spokesperson said there was no tyre burst and the aircraft did not make an emergency landing.

According to him, the pilot had requested emergency landing at Ahmedabad which was immediately approved by the ATC.
Emergency procedures were initiated at Ahmedabad Airport. The aircraft was accorded full priority and all the 185 passengers were safe.
The aircraft is currently parked at Ahmedabad airport for a detailed inspection, he said.
