It is a debt instrument which offers a fixed rate of interest for the fixed tenure like your Bank FDs. Usually, Companies or Governments use the tool of debentures to borrow or raise the money for their business expansion.

It is nothing but you are lending a loan to the company. In return, the company will give you an interest rate fixed for a fixed tenure.


There are two types of debentures. One is CONVERTIBLE and another is NON-CONVERTIBLE. The convertible debentures are the ones that can be converted into equity shares at a later time. This convertibility provides an attraction to the investor but yields lower interest rates. Non-convertible debentures does not convert into equity shares thus can yield a higher interest rate.

Convertible NCDs turning to shares means you will be the part of the owner of that company. NCDs or Non-Convertible Debentures are again two types. Once is SECURED and another is UNSECURED. Secured NCDs are backed by the issuer company’s assets to fulfil the debt obligation in case of bankruptcy of the company.

However, UNSECURED NCDs are not backed by any assets and in case the company goes bankrupt, there can be an issue in paying back the bondholders. Only after the payment is made to every entity which has some security, the unsecured NCD bondholders have any chance of getting back their money. Hence, these NCD’s have high-interest rates.


Before proceeding further to blindly invest, check the tax treatment of such NCDs. The taxability of interest on NCD will depend on the method of accounting you follow for recognizing your income.

If you are following the cash method of accounting, interest will be taxable as and when the interest is received (like in this case of NCDs).

However, under the mercantile method of accounting, interest income on NCD will be taxable as and when interest is accrued and due.

If you hold the listed NCD, (cumulative or annual interest payment), for a period of one year or more, and on selling such NCD if you earn the gain, then such gain will be long-term capital gains (LTCG) chargeable to tax at 10% without indexation benefit.

If you hold the listed NCD for less than one year and on selling of the said NCD and earn the profit then such gain will be short-term capital gains (LTCG) chargeable to tax at normal rates.

Hence, you have to consider the interest income taxation and also capital gain taxation (if you sell it before maturity).

9.1% Tata Capital Financial Services Limited NCD Sept 2018 – Should you invest?


If you consider the current Bank FD rates of some other debt fixed interest rates, then you notice that they are at a low end (slowly now inching up). Hence, if you are looking for some fixed return of interest on your capital, then definitely the best choice.


These NCDs are secured and unsecured also and hence take a call based on your requirement and risk. However, never rely on current rating. Because current credit rating may change in future based company’s financial condition.


This NCD offers only annual interest rate payment. Hence, those who looking for monthly or quarterly interest income may have to stay away from this NCD.


Do remember that you have to pay the tax on whatever the interest you receive from such NCDs. Hence, always consider the returns based on post-tax returns rather than EYE catching pre-tax returns.

The formula to calculate the same is as below.

Post-tax returns = Pre-Tax returns * { (100-Tax Rate) / 100 }

Hence, before proceeding further, you have to look for your NEED, RISKS and TAXATION.
