    I am planing to go with IDFC infra bonds by tomorrow(12/15/2011) through any one of the broker in Bangalore.Please let me know the HR letter from a MNC is considered for the current address proof or online HDFC bank statements is considered as current address proof?
    If there is any change in current address , then how can we update it in that band? is there is there any risk to give temporary address(at least i will be in this address next half year)?

      Hello,You can provide your bank account statement updated within last 3 months.
      There will not be any harm if anyone give temporary address.Just do not forget to attch cancelled copy of that maturity amount can be credited directly to your bank account through ECS.Also if there is any change in address,you can communicate to registrar with new address proof,,for detailed procedure take help of your broker.

    Hi ,
    Great effort indeed . Really thanks for the information .
    Need few points to be cleared ASAP:
    1. What would be the risk involved in buying the bonds.Looking at the portfolio how much loss we will have to sustain just in case we drop off the interest rate ?
    2. As you have mentioned , is the money invested only in infra projects or even in market .Does the current sensex /nav going to affect the returns .
    3. max 20, 000 per annum for min of 5 yrs . so that would make 1Laks as actual principal invested amount .Considering say 9 % compound interest rate how much amount would be gained ?
    4. Plus any specific recommendations for infra bonds other IDFC or is the best ?
    Sorry fairly new to the investment world and need to invest so your quick answer would be really appreciated .

      Dear sir,thanks for your comments.
      1.First of all,interest rate is fixed at 9%,interet rate risk is for them who trades these bonds on nse or bse.Bonds are apparently secured and carries highest AAA rating from rating agencies.
      2.Capital raised through these issues are used for infrastructure finance only,,not invested in stock market.So no share market risk.
      3. Its only one time investment of Rs.20,000/-.You can decide for next year depending upon taxation rules.Its not like that you need to pay for 5 yrs.
      4.One can invest in this issue,,no problem even if invested in other issues like PFC,REC,L&T etc.

    The Tax for interest earned will be deducted at Source for this Infra Bonds?
    If yes what will be the percentage.

  11. bnr says:

    is there any proposal by LIC to issue infra bonds in this year 2011-12. can you confirm so that if no issue i can invest in present bonds

    • admin says:

      Govt have permitted LIC to launch infra bonds.But still there is no news about it.
      I think that one can think of LIC for insurance purpose only,not as infrastructure finance company.

  12. MFB says:


    Thank you very much for your effort. Very informative for beginners.

    Would request you to please clarify the following:
    1. If four bonds (each Rs. 5000/-) is bought then the total amount of Rs. 20,000/- can be exempted from tax (Over and above 1lac of 80c). Please confirm.

    2. In case of investment for tax benefit, which is the best option – Interest paid annually of cumulative? Whether such interest is taxable?

    3. Is the amount on maturity taxable?

    Appreciate your early response.

    Thanks Much!

      Sir,Thanks for appreciation.
      1.Tax benefit is for Rs.20000/- ,,above Rs. 1 Lakh.
      2.I would prefer cumulative option as capital invested is not big enough.and I will not able to do anything enough from interest earned annually.
      3.Interest earned is taxable.Then also it is beneficial in comparison with other debt products like fixed deposits.Currently SBI offers 9.25% rate of interest.After tax ,,returns comes to be 6.25% for 30% tax bracket.
      While for infra bonds,even if we cancel out tax saved for tax paid,we are getting a tax free.returns.

  13. Rohit Ray says:

    When will the application form be made available for download online? (As done by IFCI). Are there any links? Or forms are available only hard copy format from dealers.

  14. VC says:

    hi, So in comparison to IFCI and PFC, IDFC has a better Credit rating. Will you recommend IDFC in comparison to IFCI and PFC ? Its another 5 days for a new IDFC issue…

    • admin says:

      In my opinion,tax saving is a sole purpose of investing in theses bonds.Half percent higher or lower interest rates do not create much difference for Rs.20,000/-.So whether its IDFC,PFC,IFCI or LIC it will not have a much difference.
