Tips to Invest in Best Tax Saving ELSS Funds

  • Invest in best ELSS Funds via a SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) in the beginning of the financial year (i.e. in April) and not when the financial year is ending.

  • Choose an ELSS Mutual Fund carefully among the list of best ELSS Funds, and invest in the same for a year instead of jumping to other tax saving ELSS funds every year.

  • Good ELSS returns can be achieved when invested for 5-7 years, so it is suggested not to pull out money once your lock-in ends after 3 years. Try holding it for a longer duration to earn better returns.

  • If you are a risk-averse investor and want a less-volatile fund, consider investing in a large-cap Mutual Fund.
