Positive Points

  • High Coupon rate of 11.75 % as compared to Bank FD rates of 9%
  • If you fall in the lower tax bracket, post-tax returns for some options in this NCD are superior to that of tax-free bonds.

Negative factors

  • For an investor in the highest tax bracket, it doesn’t make sense to invest in these as the net returns are comparable with that of the tax-free bonds.
  • NCDs are illiquid. If the interest rates fall, it may be difficult for investors to capitalise on falling interest rates. If you invest in govt bonds / short medium term debt funds, and if the interest fall in 2-3 years time frame, they may give you better returns than these NCD offering 12.5%.

Taxation Aspects
