A bond is a debt-security in which the authorised issuer
owes the holders a debt and depending on the terms of bond
is obliged to pay interest or to repay the principal at a
later date termed as maturity. It can also be called as a
formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at
fixed intervals.

the basic difference between bonds & debentures is that bonds are issued by goverment (central, state, recently some muncipal corporations also)and debentures are issued by private companies. both are issued to collect the loan (fund)from public in small amounts for specific period of time & pre-determine interest.

wat ammet mentioned above is right,, adding to that an
SECURITY. ex: M&M issued debenture for raising a loan of
6000 cr. so it will issue debentures with a option of
convertable i.e, CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES,.after certain
period that debentures can be converted to M&M shares which
u can sell them at that time price..
Bonds are not coverted into shares or securities.. almost
risk free..
