Notably, in the rising interest rate regime, when banks have started to increase interest rate on bank FDs it will not be a good idea to invest in the instrument for long term i.e. 10 years. Plus, unsecured nature of the instrument available for 10 years, makes it a rather riskier bet with just 0.2% higher interest in comparison to other Tata Capital NCDs of lower tenure.
