    dear sir,

    without a demat account for investments, just like "d s kulkarni", are there any other good companies  that provide monthly or even quarterly interest payouts, without any lockin periods? if so, do provide me details, or atleast their websites, so that i can find out for myself. request you to please keep this communication as private as possible.

    thanks and regards


    leslie dsouza.

    • Leslie, No. These are NCD bonds where they would be paid at maturity. However you can sell them on stock exchange if there are buyers onthat day. You asked a general question and I don’t think there is any private communication required
