Power Finance Corporation (PFC) 80CCF Infrastructure Bonds

Power Finance Corporation (PFC) is the second company after IFCI to come out with their 80CCF infrastructure bonds.

These bonds help you get tax benefit over and above the Rs. 1,00,000 that you get by investing in Section 80C tax instruments.

The face value of each bond is Rs. 5,000 and PFC will come out with an issue size of Rs. 200 crores or Rs. 2 billion.

These bonds are secured, and rated AAA/Stable from CRISIL and AAA with stable outlook by ICRA.

The bonds will be available in both Demat and physical form, and these are the other terms of the PFC infrastructure bonds.

It’s a good thing that PFC infrastructure bonds have opened up so much ahead of time because it gives people enough time to subscribe to them and get the tax proofs well ahead of March 31st.

PFC is a good company, and the interest rates among these 80CCF bonds aren’t going to vary much as they are capped at the 10 year government bond yields, so I think people who are looking to invest in these bonds can give PFC a serious thought.

Last year, there were some news reports that LIC was going to offer these bonds with along with free life insurance and circumvent the cap on yields, but that never materialized.

I don’t know if any other company will try to pull something similar this year or not, but with just an investment of Rs. 20,000 in these – it will not make a lot of difference in absolute terms.

  12. i had subscribed to your Infrastructure Bonds Series 1 on 15.03.2005. i would like to know the status of the same and when can i encash it. what is the procedure to encash it. at present i am re3asiding in baroda.
    please guide.

  13. Whether PFC has paid interest for the investments into bonds for FY 2010-11? I have not received any payment. And I could not get any details online & whom to contact to know the date of interest payment.
    Please guide.

    1. Even I am struggling to find out more about the interest payment. There is no information available online that I could find. I haven’t even received the allotment letter/advice either.

      As per my understanding, the interest would be paid annually on the anniversary of the deemed date of allotment, which I think is 23rd November 2011 (the date on which the bonds were credited to my demat account) for this particular tranche.

      So I am expecting the interest to be credited to my bank account by the end of this month. If anyone has more info, please add.

      Thanks and regards,

        1. Thanks Shiv. I had read that post last month, but I was a bit unsure which PFC was mine since PFC was mentioned twice. (I assumed PFS was a typo and you meant PFC.) (And I should have mentioned this link in my above comment!)

          What confounds me is why does the PFC website not have any information?!! I had also bought into PFC’s 2010 bonds and they sent me a very helpful allotment letter/advice then, so there is no confusion there… but no such letter for the Nov 2011 tranche. I didn’t bother contacting them for the letter since my demat account showed all the bonds duly present, so I thought let’s wait and watch. 🙂


  14. Just in– NSDL sms about PFC allotment in my demat account.

    Checking the PFC site, I found list of bondholders of previous issues– fyi.

  15. Dear Manshu,
    Thank you so much for providing such valuable info on you website.

    I have few questions….would be great if you help-

    1. If I take any bond like PFC (which sharekhan was not offering on their website though they are offering IFCI infra bond online) by filling up the physical form and provide demat a/c no in tyhe form …then will it get credited to my demat a/c automatically on allotment of the bonds??

    2. When PFC infra bonds are getting alloted??

    3. IDFC is giving 9% rate of interest….should I wait till Mar-12 to get other infra bonds having higher rate of interest??? If so …then when it is expected ???


    1. Dear Subi,

      1. Yes, it will be credited to your Demat account.
      2. Austere just left a note about that so I think you might have seen that about getting the allotment done today.
      3. I don’t think the issues to come will have a much higher rate of interest maybe 0.25% – 0.50% higher and on 20k – that’s not much. I’ve seen that several people wait till very end and then find it difficult to get tax proofs and struggle with it. Ultimately it’s your decision if you want to wait or not but be cognizant of this factor.
