The issue will run from 23rd December to 15th Jan 2021, with an option of early closure. Care Ratings has rated the offering CARE A+; with stable outlook and Brickwork Ratings India Private has rated it as BWR AA-/Stable.

However experts have taken a cautious stance. "Though the outlook is stable, an A rating means there is credit risk. Refinancing loans is common currently because of the reduced interest rates but there is no advantage for 10 year investing over 3 years.
