Bonds are to be issued both in physical and dematerialized form, hence a demat account is not necessary to buy these bonds. Also, the bonds do not have any lock-in period.

 

The Series 2 bonds are comparable to 11.10% pre-tax return earned on other fixed income instruments, assuming the highest tax bracket of 30.9% for retail individuals, which are comparable to HUDCO bonds which are currently open for subscription and offering among the highest returns in form of interest rate. No bank fixed deposits are offering such rates, and that too for such long durations.

 

To conclude, Ennore Port issue is suitable for those looking to park funds in fixed income assets when interest rates are expected to head south, in the coming months.
