Save Tax with ELSS

ELSS or Equity Linked Savings Scheme, a type of mutual fund scheme, is a very popular tax saving product eligible for deduction from u/s 80C of the IT Act.

Under section 80C, ELSS is the only product that offers equity exposure with potential for attractive long term returns and with the least lock-in period of only 3 years. Further more, there is no long term (>1 year) capital gains in all mutual fund equity schemes making ELSS more attractive. You can either make a lumpsum investment or do a monthly SIP or do both in an ELSS.
