    When you want to invest your hard earned money for a longer period of time and get a regular income, Fixed Deposit Scheme is ideal. It is SAFE, LIQUID and FETCHES HIGH RETURNS.
    Loan / Overdraft facility is available against bank fixed deposits. Now many banks don’t charges for premature withdrawal.

    Is interest derived on deposits or debentures with Non banking finance Companies (N.B.F.Cs) engaged in loan givin g operations, registered under R.B.I act covered under 80C of the Act ?

    • Vivek Says:

      Interest received from any source (other than interest accured and reinvested on NCS VIII issue) is taxable under the Act.
      But interest received from certain exempted securities are exempted u/s 10(15) of the ACT that too does not include interest derived on deposits or debentures with Non banking finance Companies (N.B.F.Cs) engaged in loan giving operations. Only interest on notified debentures of public sector companies are exempt under the ACT.
