Management's comment on quarter four results

The company said that there has been no material impact on the operations or profitability of the group during the financial year due to the pandemic, except a consolidated one-time rebate of Rs 10.8 bn.

The rebate was given to electricity distribution companies and power departments of states and union territories for passing on to end-consumers against the billing of April 2020 and May 2020.

Due to this, there was a reduction in the profit for the year and the same was disclosed under 'exceptional items' in the statement of profit and loss.

First InvIT IPO by a PSU

Last month, Power Grid launched its infrastructure investment trust (InvIT) IPO to monetise its infrastructure assets.

This move by Power Grid came at a time when the government announced that it has set a disinvestment target of Rs 1.8 tn for the financial year 2022.

The offer comprised a fresh issue of Rs 49.9 bn and an offer for sale of Rs 27.4 bn by the selling unitholder.

The net proceeds raised by the company from the fresh issue offer will be utilised for providing loans to the initial portfolio assets for repayment or pre-payment of debt, including any accrued interest, availed by the initial portfolio assets, and for general corporate purposes.
