  1. hey please help me i dont ahve a demat account i am 20 years old tybcom student and want to invest in ths ncd for 3years monthly scheme in physicl form will ill need to pay tds or something like that?

    1. Yes Vivek, If you are applying in physical form, company would deduct TDS every year. You can consider taking demat account. It would charge you small fees per annum, nothing more.

    1. Hi Shiv, Yes you can apply in physical form. There are 2 disadvantages for physical form 1) TDS would be deducted as per company norms. If you are in low tax bracket or your income is not taxable, you need to claim this money back when you file IT return 2) You cannot dispose it off when you want any urgent money. There is huge process for that. But I am wondering that there are still investors who do not have demat account 🙂 You should open one. It costs you small charges of less than Rs 1,000 per year as maintenance. Otherwise only transaction charges for any transaction applies, there is nothing more.

  2. Dear Sir,

    I would like to know if there is TDS. As per the prospectus:

    I. To the Resident Debenture Holder
    1. Interest on NCD received by Debenture Holders would be subject to tax at the normal rates of tax in accordance with and subject to the provisions of the I.T. Act and such tax would need to be withheld at the time of credit/payment as per the provisions of Section 193 of the I.T. Act. However, no income tax is deductible at source in respect of the following:
    a. In case the payment of interest on debentures to a resident individual or a Hindu Undivided Family (‘HUF’) Debenture Holder does not or is not likely to exceed ` 5,000 in the aggregate during the financial year and the interest is paid by an account payee cheque.
    b. On any security issued by a company in a dematerialized form and is listed on recognized stock exchange in India in accordance with the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956 and the rules made thereunder. (w.e.f.01.06.2008).

    Since these NCDs are issued in DEMAT form, there should not be any TDS, right?




    1. Krishna, If taken on demat form, there is no TDS. However it is immaterial about TDS. You need to declare this in your IT form and pay income tax based on your income tax slab.

  3. Hi Suresh,

    Are these NCD's taxable? IF yes, then i believe the tax will be charged on the interest earned. How will the tax deduction take place in the 70 months scheme? As the table suggests the interest to be cumulative. Hence at the end of 70th month one is bound to recieve double the investment. But if the same is taxable then how the company state that the value of the bondholders will be doubled?




    1. Hi Anil, These are pre-tax returns. Generally companies would deduct TDS @ 10%. However tax payers need to declare the interest income every year in their income tax returns and pay tax according to their tax slabs. Yes this is natural advertisement like any other investment option. None of the taxable investment options indicate post tax returns as the tax would depend on individual income tax slab. 

  4. Hi Suresh,

    I regularly follow your posts and they are certainly of great help.

    My first question is about their liquidity,is demat the only way to sell of such ncd's,I read somwhere that some ncd's offer "put option" to exit the ncd

    secondly I wanted to ask what is a good period to invest in such instruments since manapurram has tenure from 400 days to 70 months

    1. Bhavesh, Thanks for your message. Demat is the only way to sell NCD’s. As per my knowledge there is no put option for such investments. 2) Generally these options should be invested for shorter period of less than 5 years. However since these are secured investments, you can still invest for 70 months.
