As provided in this years budget, a provision has been made for claiming tax exemption in respect of investment in infrastructure bonds. Can some please tell me how can we invest in these bonds?

The sellers of the long term infrastructure bond is saying that DEEMAT ACCOUNT is compulsory to purchase long term infrastructure bond. I don't have the deemat account but I want to invest in the long term infrastructure bond? Is it possible? Please let me know. Thank you.

sir me and my wife both are government servants.she does not have a demat account. can one apply in spouse's demat account as second applicant and claim it rebate?

Same problem with me. I am not having Demat account whereas my wife is having. Since as per demat terms the investment can be made exactly in name as appear in demat account. Since your wife's name is not there in the demat account you can invest in your name only. To have joint application you should have joint demat account

sir the online application form on sharekhan my demat provider is allowing to fill one more applicant's name in the form. can you also enlighten us as to which series of bond we should apply(series 1 to 4 in idfc bonds).

if both husband and wife are income tax payers then i suggest open two dmat accts one with husband as first owner and wife as second owner open other dmat acct with wife as first and husband as second then invest 20000 each in each of the two accts and claim maximum rebate

dmat accounts with single owner create lot of problems in settlement to successors
in the unfortunate event of the death of the owner
