  1. My recommendation is to invest some part of your Fixed Income investment in this NCD Issue
  2. You should always have diversified portfolio be it fixed deposit, NCD or equity investment
  3. Its good idea to remain invested till maturity because liquidity on exchanges are low and hence you would get lower than market value.

If you plan to invest in this issue, do it early as most good NCD issues are over-subscribed before the end date.
