There’s a lot of interest in government bonds (G-Secs) and treasury bills (T-bills) given that the yields are higher than fixed deposits. These bonds also look more attractive given that debt funds will no longer be eligible for long term capital gains (LTCG) and indexation.
If you have any questions about investing in government bonds, post them below.
Here are the yields on various maturities of G-secs, T-bills and SDLs
Is it possible to transfer Govt Bonds purchased on RBI RDG Platform to Demat Account?
I know the reverse is possible and RBI allows it i.e. Transfer of Bonds from Demat to RBI Retail Direct Gilt Account.
Okay… The transfer of G-secs from the RBI direct account to the demat account is not allowed.
You could have just said that…
Thanks… Anyway by reading it, I was able to learn about the exact procedure for doing the reverse transfer i.e. from Zerodha to RBI RDG
Yes theoretically it is possible but you will have to go through the pain of identifying 12 different GOI bonds that mature in various different months from Jan to Dec and purchase them at the right prices to create a monthly pay out ladder with your desired yield…

Hi, I am entirely new to to T-bill investing. Want to understand how this works. I purchased a 91 day T-bill on 28th march, and 10 days later I received the invested amount at a discounted rate. Why did I receive this amount? Was my bid rejected?
