Why we invest?

  • High interest rates of 11.5% to 12.5% p.a. and annualised yield upto 14.89% p.a.

Why not to invest?

  • These company fixed deposit schemes are unsecured, hence they are high risk.
  • These company fixed deposit schemes are illiquid. Unlike any other bank FD, you cannot withdraw as and when you need money
  • Interest income is taxable and the returns would be low in case of investors who are in high tax bracket. For such investors, the returns would be 8% to 8.64% p.a.
  • Promoter’s shareholding pledged for 30% as on 30-Dec-2012.

Conclusion: These company fixed deposits are high risk investments. There are better company fixed deposits in case an investor wants to invest in company FD to get higher returns. We would not recommend investors to invest in such scheme.

  2. I invested nearly Rs 2 lakhs in Omnitech FD. They neither pay the quarterly interest nor refund principal amounts and upon calling each time they tell a postponed date for payment by 2 to 4 weeks which afterwards is again postponed. The company appears to be a total fraud. Anybody knows what legal recourses can be taken from outside Maharashtra.

    1. Hi Dasgupta, You can complaint at Company Law Board or at customer grievance cell at SEBI. Here is the address for Maharastra region: Company Law Board, Southern Region Bench, Block 1, Shastri Bhawan, 26,Haddows Road, Chennai 600 001. Also here is the link for registering complaint at SEBI. For registering a complaint, access and click on the ‘complaint registration’ tab under ‘Investor Corner’.

  3. Omnitech infosolutions is defaulting their FD payments. My brother made an FD with them for Rs.2 Lakhs. They have not paid him till now. They are not taking any phone calls. Linkintime who are their registrars are not saying when the payment will be made. Stay away from omnitech infosolutions fixed deposits.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Mohan. Have you approached their customer care numbers. What is the response from them. This would help other readers to know the risks involved.
