    Hi Mukesh,

    If you have online trading account with ICICIDirect then you can buy online in DEMAT form.

    There is also option to personally visit designated bank branches and submit the application and cheque.

    Hope this answers your query.

      Hello Atul ji

      Thanks for your reply. But sir, i don’t have ICICI Demat Account but have Demat account in Acist C. Meheta & India Bulls . Can i purchase from these Account.
      Is there any other way to buy these Infra Structure Bonds Please give your valuable suggestion.

    How does one compare between the various Infrastructure bonds offered (example – LIC, IFCI, and IDFC)? All these bonds offer the same rate of interest and are tradeable on the exchange. So the confusion is how to choose one over the other.

  3. Santosh says:

    Currently IFCI infrastructure bond series II is going on and you can invest in that which is giving better interest than the L&T and IDFC infra bonds. The last date for the same is 31/12/2010.
