  1. I agree with Gaurav

    Infra bonds is not for people who can take moderate risk and invest in equity oriented schemes , Look more for infrastructure bonds at :

  2. Gaurav Malik says:

    I would not look at an INFRA Bond even though it saves an additional 20K on tax but investors should also know that money is locked in for 10 years. Would I want to lock in my money for tax benefits for 10 years when I know same amount invested in MF/stocks would give me higher returns.

    Infrastructure bonds are issued basically by the Government for the infrasturcture/devlopment of country.
    Yes its a good option, we can save additional tax.
    You can invest in any of the companies – IDFC, IFCI have already started, LIC will follow soon.
    You need to have a Demat account to buy them.
    There are no risks involved but the returns would be around 7-8% which will just manage to beat inflation.
    I am going to invest in these bonds.
