Cum-Interest Price : When the interest accrued from the last due date of interest to the date of transaction is included in the price quoted, it is called Cum-Interest price which is the total amount paid for the purchase of debentures.

Thus, Cum-Interest Price = Payment towards Capital Portion + Payment towards Interest accrued from the last due date of interest to the date of transaction.

Ex-Interest .Price : When the interest accrued from the last due date of interest to the date of transaction is not included in the price quoted, it is called Ex-interest price or Real Price.
