There is a lock-in period of 5 years from the date of allotment. Earlier, IFCI raised about Rs 100 crore, including a greenshoe option of Rs 50 crore. Power Finance Corporation has filed a draft prospectus with the SEBI to float long term infrastructure bonds.

The funds raised through this issue will be utilised towards “infrastructure lending” as defined by the RBI in the regulations issued by it from time to time, after meeting the expenditures of, and related to the issue.

The maximum amount of income not chargeable to tax in case of individuals (other than women assesses and senior citizens) and HUFs is Rs 1,60,000. In the case of women, the limit is Rs 1,90, 000 and in the case of senior citizens, it is Rs 2,40,000 for FY10.Hence those guys whose income exceeds these slabs can go for these bonds.

PFC Infra Bonds & L&T Infra Bonds are offering the highest interest rates (@8.3%) till date by any “Infrastructure Finance Status” company. I think a person in the 30.9% or 20.6% tax bracket should go for these bonds as they are going to save Rs. 6,180/- & Rs. 4,120/- tax on the income. The additional tax deduction of Rs. 20,000/- u/s. 80CCF is over & above Rs. 1,00,000/- deduction u/s. 80C.

To invest in PFC Infrastructure Bonds, L&T Infrastructure Bonds, IDFC Infrastructure Bonds or for any info on Tax Savings u/s. 80C / 80CCF Call/SMS 9811797407 (Delhi, Gurgaon & Noida).
