As interest received is tax free,investors with higher tax brackets can benefited more.Partial liquidity is  available through annual interest income.Currently SBI is offering 9.25% interest rate.For 20% bracket imcome net returns get reduced upto 7.25%…as well in future tax bracket can also be changed to if anyone looking to lock some money for quite long term,then surely think of this issue.
We can do one assumption that anyone have invested Rs.1 lakh in this issue  for 10 yrs and reinvest the annual interest received in fixed deposits with average  post tax interest rate of 7%.Then overall he will collect Rs.1,14,300 + Initial invested principal (1 lakh) = 2,14,300 (7.95% CAGR) after 10 yrs and after tax is paid .
