Rupee Denominated Bonds

A bond that is issued by an Indian entity but in foreign markets and the interest earned on principal and principal also reimbursements are denominated in rupees is called ‘Rupee Denominated Bond’.

It was introduced first by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) when it had issued rupee-denominated bonds in the name of ‘masala bonds’. Thus Rupee Denominated Bonds are also described as Masala Bonds. RBI framed detailed regulatory guidelines for the issue of rupee-denominated bonds in September 2015. In 2016 RBI permitted banks to issue masala bonds to raise funds to meet their capital needs and to collect funds to finance infrastructure projects.

The specialty of rupee-denominated bonds is that buying bonds, interest payments, and repayment all these three are expressed in rupees. All payments are converted into corresponding dollar values at the rate at the time of payment. According to RBI, The maturity period for bonds equivalent to 50 million dollars is 3 years and the maturity period for bonds issued above 50 million dollars in a financial year is 5 years.
