This could be a good option for those who are looking to pay Fees for Higher Education for their children.

There is an option to invest in Physical form as well as Demat form.
However, note that the Interest on investment via Demat Form will not attract any TDS while the Interest income on investment via Physical mode would be taxable

The issue is rated as BBB+ by CARE. The rating is not great, but for a Real Estate company is good. The rating indicates Moderate Degree of Safety regarding timely servicing of Financial Obligations. Such instruments carry moderate credit risk.
In the recent downturn faced by Real Estate Sector, D.S.Kulkarni showed good resilience to come out unscathed.
The issue is very small and should easily get subscribed within a week of its launch.
The biggest thing going for the issue is it is SECURED and its relatively Interest Rates. The Trustee for the NCDs are GDA Trusteeship Limited who also are trustees for L&T Bonds, Shriram NCDs and hava a Asset Under Management of over Rs.1 lakh crores. The Issue is Secured with the Cover of Land placed with 1.5 times the Issue Size.
D.S.Kulkarni is the 1st Real Estate Company to come out with NCD. We have seen a deluge of NCDs from NBFCs and this certainly gives a diversification to investors who are primarily interested in Fixed Income Instruments.

Go for it, but in moderation. But do keep in mind that the NCD should only form a part of your overall Debt allocation and should not cross 5% of your Debt portfolio.
