Section 71 (4) of the Companies Act, 2013 requires that an amount equal to at least 25% of the value of debentures is to be transferred to the Debenture Redemption Reserve Account. Accordingly, its Rs.50,000 is required to be transferred to DRR (i.e. 25% of Rs.2,00,000) before the actual date of redemption of debentures.
