  1. The additional incentive will be given maximum of 0.25% p.a. for Category III and IV Investors in the proposed Issue, only on the Indiabulls NCDs allotted in this Issue i.e. to the Primary Holder(s) on the deemed date of allotment. is it only for existing investor for Category III and IV or for new investors also?

  2. Dear Sureshji, Detailed analysis done by you for each & every post. Really appreciated your interest on money market securities. I would like to ask whether the interest accrued on NCDs are taxable, if so how it is calculated?

    1. Thanks Ragavan. Interest amount is taxable based on the individual tax slab applicable. One can follow based on actual receipt basis (if paid monthly or yearly, they can show in the financial year return, however if it is paid ony on maturity, one can show as and when it is received). These are generally treated like any other bank FD interest taxation principles

  3. Suresh,

    These rates are quite good. How do you compare these NCDs with corporate FDs like Shriram City in terms of Safety and Security?


  4. Good and detailed analysis. Simple thing of life is that if you want better rated NCDs (means more security), then you will get less interest rate and vice versa. Safety scores better than returns. Because if there is no safety (means principal is liquidated), there is no return at all. Safety hai to return hai.
