Tata Power eyeing InvIT route for monetising renewable energy assets

India’s largest private sector-integrated power company Tata Power, which is tackling a high debt burden, is in the fundraise mode and is exploring options to monetize its renewable energy assets through the infrastructure investment trust ( InvIT) route, multiple sources with knowledge of the matter told Moneycontrol.
