Should you subscribe in Indiabulls Commercial Credit NCD of 2018?

Indiabulls Commercial Credit Limited is offering secured redeemable NCDs now in 2018. Several times, I advise investors to park money in securing NCD’s as they are safer compared to unsecured NCD’s. While banks are showing some signs of interest rates increase, the interest rates are still between 6% to 7.5% per annum, which are low compared to interest rates offered by these NCDs. Considering high interest rates and secured NCD’s in nature, one can consider investing in these NCD’s after assessing risk factors indicated above.  However, one should invest in them only for short to medium term of 2 to 5 years. Don’t go for long term NCDs of 10 years as we do not know how the company would perform in the long run.

Indiabulls Commercial Credit NCD Sep 2018 Review

Suresh KP


  1. Hello Sureshji
    I am your long follower since 2013. I need ur help in taking decisions in some of my investment
    1. I had taken Indiabulls 1000 in series 4 (monthly payout for 5 yrs) commercial secured non convertible NCD by investing 1 lac on 25.09.2018. Although, it is giving monthly payout uninterruptedly but pretty much concerned seeing its value is crashing everyday. Recently it crashed from 831 per NCD to 750 per NCD. Should I hold on or sell out these NCD, considering I will incur 25k loss.

    1. Very difficult question. Currently Indiabulls 3 subsidiaries are being probed for various allegations by Ministry of Finance. NCD value is already eroded to 25% if you sell them in open market. If you want to protect 75%, you can sell them in open market. However if you still want to take risk and recover whatever 25k loss you can wait for some more time.

  2. In case if I wish to withdraw before the scheduled completion of the term, will I be able to and if yes, what rate of interest would I get on withdrawal.

  3. In case if I wish to withdraw before the scheduled comletion of the term, will I be able to and if yes, what rate of interest would I get on withdrawal.
