Nice post!
Well I recently heard that even Air India is planing to come up with an infra bond issue, which provides benefit u/s 80CCF..
Is that true?

Rajendra on November 27, 2011 at 8:11 PM said...

No 80CCF Tax Saving Benefit allow..

Long Term Funds may be allowed to be raised through Non Taxable Infrastructure Bonds by the financial institutions for funding in the airport sector.
There may be certain period of lock in for the invested amount.
