Investments in Equity Linked Saving Schemes or ELSSs qualify for tax deduction under Section 80C of the the Income Tax Act. You can invest in these tax saving or tax planning schemes and claim tax deductions of up to Rs 1.5 lakh in a financial year. ELSS funds come with a mandatory lock-in period of three years. However, you should invest in equity mutual fund schemes, including ELSS funds, only if you have a minimum investment horizon of five to seven years. This is extremely important in the current market scenario.

Here are our recommended tax saving mutual fund schemes:
  • Motilal Oswal Long Term Equity Fund
  • Aditya Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96
  • Invesco India Tax Plan
  • Axis Long Term Equity Fund
  • Mirae Asset Tax Saver Fund
  • DSP Tax Saver Fund
