Tata Capital Ltd has announced public issue of Secured Non-Convertible Debentures (“NCDs”) aggregating to Rs. 50,000 lakhs with an option to retain over-subscription of Rs. 1,00,000 lakhs for issuance of additional NCDs.
There are four options to choose from
1. NCD of face value Rs.1,00,000 (min 1 NCD) with interest rate of 11.5% paid monthly.
2. NCD of face value Rs.1,000 (min 10 NCDs) with interest rate of 11.25% per annum paid quarterly.
3. NCD of face value Rs.1,000 (min 10 NCDs) with interest rate of 12% per annum paid annually.
3. NCD of face value Rs.1,000 (min 10 NCDs) with interest rate of 12% per annum paid cumulative.
So what is this NCD and what an investor should do?

As indicated above there 2 NCDs of different face value.In the first case you have to invest minimum Rs.1 lakh with face value of Rs.1 lakh and you will get interest rate of 11.5% monthly.
In the second case minimum investment is Rs.10,000 but 10 NCDs of Rs.1,000each.
The interest will be paid at the end of the quarter/year or cumulative after 5 years - depending on the options 2,3 and 4.

What are advantages and disadvantages?

Advantages:
As indicated the NCDs are secured, 11.5% and 12% are slightly better interest rates than Bank Fds.
Every month/quarter/year you will be getting the interest as mentioned above.
No TDS on interest.

Disadvantages:
The NCDs have lock-in period of 5 years.
They are listed in National Stock Exchange (NSE), they may or may not be actively traded. So liquidity might be a problem - that is one cannot sell the debentures as and when required.


Currently bank deposits offer anywhere between 10 to 11% p.a. which are better. But going forward interest rates might drift lower. But Bank FDs offer easy liquidity, that is an advantage.

So, know your requirements and risk profile before investing in this NCD.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.
