Equity Linked Savings Schemes, ELSS

These are tax-saving equity funds that qualify for a deduction under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. The lock-in period is just 36 months, as against the much longer tenures of other tax-saving investments. However, do not be in a hurry to exit such an investment. If the market is low when the 3-year tenure is completed, hang on. Sell when the market is in your favour.
