I mostly purchase two denominations 750 & 1500 , right now I have about 400 plus 750RS-Bonds & about 300 plus 1500Rs bonds .
I do have other denominations as well but not in significant number i.e about 15 of 7500Rs bonds , 5 of 4000Rs bonds etc
each year I win couple of 3rd prizes moslty of 750 & 1500 Rs bonds but never happend to be lucky for 1st or 2nd prizes of any denomination ....
and what makes me more doubtful is , during Bonds encashment in statebank I never came across any 1st or 2nd prize winner , after having been in the same business for 6 to 7 years I have come to conclusion that 1st & 2nd prizes dont really exist ... thats just the part of marketing policy .
thats what I have come to believe now .... I may or may not be wrong !
