  1. I already applied for NCD and that are deposited. I choose monthly interest but till date I never get any interest. Can anyone tell me when I will get interest?

    1. Sandip, Post closure of NCD subscription, you should start getting interest after completion of 1 month period. If you have not received the interest, you need to approach customer care of Indiabulls. May be the bank details are not updated.

  2. Hi,
    India Bulls Ncd still Available? Any other Ncd/Ocd in the Market? Any better product pays Monthly at all? I heard Hdfc product pays 1% Monthly? Is it True, any other Products pays above 1% Monthly? What Do you think of Adarsh credit co-op society? Any chance it will pay the investors? Please get back to me ASAP.

  3. Hi,

    IndiaBulls Consumer Fin NCD are mentioned to be listed on BSE, NSE. In this case how will it affect the maturity value for 26months period.

    Also upon listing, will the principal invested be affected or on maturity invested amount + interest will be paid?

    1. Trading of the NCD on secondary market is subject to market forces for demand and supply. For example, most people will want to buy it (secondary market) before its due date for interest payment, and dump it right after the interest is paid.
      Thus script value on NSE/BSE is independent of its inherent face value. Interest will come directly to bank based on who holds the script as on record date. If someone has bought the script the day after record date, he/she will not get the interest.
      On maturity, you get back the face value (Rs. 1000) + Interest due to be paid on maturity. Some NCDs also have a bonus offer for people who held on from issue to maturity. Some give an extra % interest for senior citizens, past NCD applicants and shareholders.
