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. So, its Rs.2,50,000 is required to be transferred to DRR (i.e. 25% of Rs.10,00,000). Further, Rule 18 (7) requires every company that is required to create DRR to invest an amount at least equal to 15% of the value of debentures in specified securities. So, Its Rs.1,50,000 is to be invested in specified securities (i.e. 15% of Rs.10,00,000).
