What are Government Bonds?

Government bond in India is essentially a contract between the issuer and the investor, in which the Government (issuer) guarantees repayment of principal along with interest-earning at the maturity date.

Government bonds, known for their stable nature and guaranteed by the issuing government, are considered low-risk investments. With fixed interest rates, they serve as a funding tool for governments to support initiatives like infrastructure development, social programs, and various expenses.

Types of Government Bonds

You might be wondering, “How many types of bonds are available in India” in which you can invest?

There are many types of bonds in India depending on the issuer, coupon rates and tenure. Depending on the bond issued, bonds come with varying interest rates and risks.

Fixed-rate bonds are financial instruments that guarantee investors a set interest rate throughout the bond's duration, resulting in regular interest payments until the bond matures.

Sovereign Gold Bonds (SGBs) are investment options offered by the Government of India, allowing individuals to invest in gold without the need for physical ownership or storage. These bonds provide a convenient paper-based form of gold investment.

Inflation-indexed bonds, referred to as inflation-linked bonds, are investment vehicles where the principal and interest payments adapt according to fluctuations in the inflation rate. These bonds safeguard against inflation by preserving the investment's value in line with increasing prices.

The RBI 7.75% Savings Bonds are a secure investment option suitable for both new and risk-averse investors who seek consistent and reliable returns while avoiding significant risks.

Government Bonds with call or put options are financial instruments that offer the issuer or investor the ability to exercise certain rights pertaining to the bond before it reaches its maturity date.

A bond with a call option provides the issuer with the privilege to repay or "call back" the bond before its designated maturity, while a bond with a put option allows the investor to sell the bond back to the issuer prior to its maturity.

Zero coupon bonds, also called discount bonds, are financial assets that do not offer regular interest payments to bondholders. Rather, they are issued below their face value and generate returns for investors as their value appreciates over time.
