Hi Varun, the init_fundamentals method and get_fundamentals method were deprecated. The Quantopian Pipeline API is now the method for accessing fundamentals data. You can learn about Pipeline in the Getting Started tutorial and the Pipeline tutorial, in addition to the fundamental data overview referenced in the error.

Good luck,
