Inflation Indexed National Saving Securities announced

Last week, RBI announced the details of the much-awaited Inflation Indexed National Saving Securities for the retail investors; to be launched in the 2nd half of this month. These would be cumulative in nature and hence are designated as Inflation Indexed National Saving Securities - Cumulative or IINSS-C. Non-cumulative securities would be introduced in due course of time.

While the issue dates would be announced shortly, here are the salient features of IINSS-C.

Availability: With the banks and Stock Holding Corporation of India Ltd (SHCIL)

Rate of interest: 1.5% + Inflation rate  [So if inflation is 10%, interest rate would be 11.5%]
Inflation rate: Final rural+urban combined CPI (applied with a lag of 3 months) [So interest for Jan 2014 would be based on inflation in Oct 2013]
Compounding: Half-yearly

Early redemption: Permitted after three years (one year for senior citizens above age 65)
Early redemption dates: Only on coupon dates
Early redemption penalty: 50% of the last coupon
