Saving Tax must be up high on priority now for you. Here are 5 reasons why you should invest in an Equity Linked Saving Scheme(ELSS):

  • Tax Benefit under Section 80C
    Investments in ELSS are eligible for a tax deduction of up to Rs 1.5 lakhs under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Because ELSS is linked to Equity, it also provides reasonable returns. So feel free to invest beyond Rs. 1.5 lacs if you want.

  • Lowest Lock-in Period
    Tax saving investments typically come with a mandatory lock-in period. In case of ELSS, there is a lock-in period of 3 years.

  • Option for Equity Beginners
    ELSS could be considered as a good optionfor first-time investors to enter the stock market. The mandatory lock-in period would help investors to weather the volatility typically associated with the stock market.

  • Tax Efficiency
    Even after the new 10 per cent LTCG tax, ELSS would provide better post-tax returns than other traditional tax-saving investments over a long period.

  • Maturity deadline
    Most tax saving investments come with maturity. You can hold on or liquidate ELSS Fund (post completion of lock-in period) after realizing returns as per goals.
