    1. You can buy NCD bonds either during the subscription period when these are issued (you can subscribe to our blog where we provide info in advance) or through stock exchange like you buy any stock

      1. Rajesh, Currently most of the banks / financial institution offers online FD. First you need to check where you want to invest and then check such bank / financial institution website and start investing

    1. Hello Rajesh, Based on guidelines from SEBI, IPO goes through ASBA. For NCDs, the process is little different. Also NCDs would be issued on first come first serve basis. During NCD issue, one can subscribe on day-1 to get immediate allotment.

        1. I repeat, ASBA is only for IPOs and not NCDs. If you want to invest in NCDs, keep checking our website for latest NCD offers and on day-1, you can subscribe as these offered under first come first serve basis. Once fully subscribed the NCD issue would be closed irrespective whether the last date has arrived or not

    1. Dinesh, It is easy to say this is not correct. What is not correct? These NCDs are rated by IND Ratings as BBB (Any bond below AAA are high risk) and this info is in the NCD prospectus filed with SEBI and Stock exchanges. Do you say information filed with Govt is wrong? Don’t support for any low rated bonds by putting such comments.
