  • The road ahead for infrastructure financing in India looks promising despite the macroeconomic headwinds. A number of alternative and long-term funding avenues are being explored in addition to the traditional sources. However, with the second wave of the pandemic significantly impacting the growth prospects in 2021-22, lenders and investors continue to remain cautious.
  • Credit growth to infrastructure showed some improvement in 2020-21, but the operating environment for banks remained challenging. Infrastructure credit grew marginally by 3.6 per cent in 2020-21, primarily driven by the road sector.
  • The bond market saw some positive developments backed by policy changes. In March 2020, the RBI had long-term repo operations (LTRO) and targeted LTRO facilities, under which banks can access three-year funds up to Rs 1 trillion to invest in corporate bonds. A number of corporates and NBFCs including Reliance Industries, the Tata Group, Larsen & Toubro, the Power Finance Corporation and the Indian Railway Finance Corporation were among the big issuers of debt papers in 2020-21.
  • Meanwhile, disinvestment and public asset recycling have emerged as important alternative fundraising routes. The government has approved a policy of strategic disinvestment of public sector enterprises and aims to generate receipts of Rs 1,750 billion from disinvestments in 2021-22. Potential brownfield infrastructure assets including roads, airports, electricity transmission, oil and gas pipelines, and telecom towers have been identified under the National Monetisation Pipeline.
  • Despite a cautious stance, foreign investors continue to assume a prominent role, especially in the road, power, renewable and telecom sectors. Investments in these sectors have come through private equity (PE) funds, pension funds and sovereign wealth funds (SWFs), strategic investors, infrastructure bonds, IDFs, etc. Greenfield and brownfield projects, operational assets, developer firms, supplier businesses, etc. have all attracted investor interest.
  • A lot of this institutional interest has come through InvITs and the toll-operate-transfer (TOT) model. While three TOT bundles have been awarded, more than half a dozen InvITs have been launched and many more are in the offing. Road is the most popular sector with three InvITs, followed by one each in power transmission, gas and telecom. The National Highways Authority of India and Power Grid Corporation of India are in the process of listing their assets under InvITs.
  • In 2020-21 PE activity also continued to grow, dominated by investments in Jio Platforms, which constituted around 71 per cent of the total PE investments. Some of the other key deals include Global Infrastructure Partners acquiring 306 MW of solar assets from the RattanIndia Group, Cube Highways acquiring Chenani Nashri Tunnelway Limited, Qatar Investment Authority acquiring Adani Electricity Mumbai, and Orix Corporation acquiring a stake in Greenko Energy Holdings.
  • IPO activity in the infrastructure sector has been driven by the government’s intent to meet its disinvestment target. IRCTC emerged as one of the most sought after IPOs ever among public sector undertaking IPOs, being oversubscribed by nearly 112 times. RailTel’s IPO was subscribed 42 times on the final day of subscription.
  • Among multilateral development banks, new generation banks such as Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the New Development Bank (NDB) have built up a sizeable infrastructure investment portfolio in the past few years.
  • Going forward, new and alternate funding sources have to be developed and tapped to meet the massive infrastructure requirements of Rs 111 trillion under the National Infrastructure Pipeline. The creation of a development finance institution (DFI) with a capital base of Rs 200 billion will facilitate long-term funding to infrastructure projects. That said, the economic fallout of the pandemic will have a lingering effect on the financial system in the current fiscal. The disruptions caused by the pandemic will lead to a slow recovery in investor confidence, and will also increase the need for debt restructuring and refinancing.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the current stance of investors and financiers in light of the pandemic, identify the potential funding sources to tap long-term financing for projects, and assess the short-term and long-term outlook for infrastructure financing in India.
