I had bought some NCDs (non convertible debentures) of FV 1000 @ 12% p.a.
The interest was credited every six months.
i.e., Rs. 60 every 6 months for each NCD.
I then again bought the same NCD from stock exchange.
In this case even though the FV remained 1000, I bought it at Market price of 1020.
On this also I got 60 Rs. as interest when it was due.
There is no TDS when the interest is credited.
Now, when I file the returns, how do I calculate the income in the second instance.
Is the income Rs. 60 Or is it Rs. 40 (1000-1020+60)?
The NCDs have not matured. But I have been getting this interest every 6 months.
I have not sold these & plan to hold till maturity.
