  1. Hello suresh
    Can you suggest me i want invest 5000 per month but not understanding where to invest .

    1. Hello Hari, Are you sure that have read the risk factors and still willing to invest in these NCDs? If yes, you can apply these bonds by logging to your demat account and visiting section like IPO/FPO/Bonds.

  2. Care BB+ rating with a 8% NPA is definitely a no-no for any investor, particularly when the economy is in bad shape due to pandemic and otherwise also. Defaults will increase as we ahead and low rated NBFCs will be the hardest hit.

  3. With NPA of 8 percent in near past what will be fate in corona 19 infected year think before you jump at 12 percent return ?
