Zero Coupon Bond: Think of investing in Zero Coupon Bond in the year 2013 and it should be taken as a preferred tool of instrument of investment specially by persons not interested in regular income. Generally the maturity time of Zero Coupon Bond is ten years. Also look into the tax planning aspect at the time of maturity. Because of the benefit of Cost Inflation Index tax will be virtually nil on your income from Zero Coupon Bond at the time of maturity. It is also good to gift Zero Coupon Bonds to your  minor children aged eight years and above.

Tax free bonds: If you are coming in the highest income bracket, namely if you are having income exceeding Rs.10 lakhs in a year, then surely it is worthwhile for you to make your investment in tax free bonds specially if you calculate the impact of income-tax savings on the same. The investment in the year 2013 in tax free bonds would be better than Bank Fixed Deposits.
