Positive factors to invest

  • Company is earning good profits in the last 5 years. However, its profits declined in the last 2 years.
  • It offers secure NCD’s where your money is safe. Means in case of any unforeseen thing happening to companies, investors of NCD would still receive the principal and interest. Hence it is safe to invest in such secured NCD’s.
  • Attractive interest rates between 11.50% to 12.25% per annum
  • You can double your money in 70 months (less than 6 years)

Negative factors

  • Capital adequacy ratio as per RBI limit should be 15% and actual as on 31-Mar-2013 is 22.67% which is the outside RBI limit.
  • Loans on gold ornaments are riskier. Decline in gold prices (which happened a few months back), can pose high risk to such business.
  • Increase in NPA’s for the year ending Mar-2013 is a major concern.

  • Sivaraman

    Hi Suresh,

    I saw that the Option 11 NCD's are available at 951 face value. My query even if I choose 5yrs option but I see good returns in the middle (If bond value increases) Can I withdraw my amount earlier? I'm little weak on subject related to Bond. Please explain

    • Sivaraman, You can sell or redeem at any time at stock exchange in case you see bond value increases. However, once you sell you would not get such high interest unless you invest in some other secured NCD offering similar returns.

  • Mohit

    Hi Suresh,

    I was not able to find out anything on TDS…I want to invest 1 lac in 36 month monthly interest..will they deduct tds.





    • Hi Mohit, If you invest through demat account, company would not deduct any TDS. If you do it manual process, company would deduct TDS. However whether company is deducting or not, you would be liable to pay income tax based on interest received during the year. You need to declare the same in your ITR and pay necessary tax based on your income tax slab.
