Difference between bonds on NSE

Hi guys, I have some questions regarding Bonds on NSE. It would be helpful if anyone can answer.

Reg NSE N series, https://www1.nseindia.com/live_market/dynaContent/live_watch/equities_stock_watch.htm?cat=SEC4

  1. Whats the difference between ‘regular’ and ‘taxable’ in bond types column
  2. I see some having ‘%chng’ as “-100%” despite having valid maturity date. Why is that ?

3. Is there any preference for a number in N series (i.e N3 > N9, ND > N9) apart from the fact each are issued at different times with varying coupons ? Also, in case of liquidation of the company, which bond would be given higher preference? I guess some ECL bonds should be riskier than other.

This is with respect to the coupon payments in case of a coupon bearing bond or the final payout of a zero coupon bond. It can be tax free or taxable. Most of the Govt of India issues enjoys a taxfree status

The % change is wrt to previous day close. Not sure why and how you see a 100% change.

  1. They are issued at different times and the most importantly, they differ in the structure of a the issue.

Thanks for your response.

  1. Can you explain/elaborate more on point 1. There are three. Tax-free, Taxable, Regular.
    I understand Tax-free. But I want differenciation between Taxable and Regular.

  2. SREINFRA NI Regular Rating: AA-; AA, Rating Agency :CARE;BRICKWORK 10.94 - 1,000 - 1,000.00 -100.00 - - - - - 11-FEB-19 ----------> I see “-100%” here.

  3. Does N1, N2 … ND signifies only difference in coupon and issue period only ? I would like to know other major differences between them if any.
