FD from JP Associates

POSTED BY SK ON October 17, 2011 1:41 am COMMENTS (5)

Hi,

JP Associated is running an FD ( http://www.jalindia.com/FD/FDScheme.pdf ). The interest rates offered look quite impressive. I have two questions ..

a. It has been offering FDs for a while, how reliable has this company been in promising and delivering on the interest rates publicized?

b. Is this a good investment?

Thanks.

        Hi Sheetal,

        Jaiprakash Associates is not rated.. Since the rate of return, there is a higher risk on investment. High Risk High Return..There have been cases where the company has delayed the FD reciept by 6 months.

        Go for a Bank Fixed Deposit or a AAA Rated Corporate fixed deposit instead of Jaiprakash associates. Go for a 3 year or more fixed deposit to lock in higher rates.

        Regards
        Abhishek
