InvITs is a novel product for the Indian equity investors – a hybrid instrument which is neither pure equity nor pure debt. While it will be listed on the equity exchanges it isn’t pure equity (the scope for capital appreciation is negligible). InvITs cannot be called debt instrument because there is no assurance of payment of interest and principal.

According to SEBI guidelines on the issuance of InvITs, the Trust needs to distribute at least 90 percent of this distributable cash to the unit holders in the form of dividend, which will be tax free. The Trust anyways is exempted from dividend distribution tax.
