ELSS vs Tax Saving FD

Updated on July 7, 2020 , 448 views

Equity Linked Savings Scheme or ELSS

Equity linked savings scheme or ELSS is the only Mutual Fund eligible for 80C deductions. ELSS is a diversified equity mutual fund that offers tax deductions up to Rs. 1.5 lakhs annually under Section 80C of Income Tax Act (IT Act 1961).

ELSS

Prior to the introduction of Feburary Budget 2018, its returns were completely tax-free. However, now it is subject to 10% long-term capital gains tax if your capital gains exceed Rs. 1 lakh after one year. Even after the 10% tax cut, ELSS has the potential to deliver superior returns compared to other tax-saving instruments. The perks of ELSS investments are not limited to the taxes saved. The Power of Compounding ensures that your investment is doubled if you invest for, say, 5 years (tenure of tax-saving FD). To add to that, the minimum lock-in period is only 3 years.

Tax Saving Fixed Deposits

Investing money in Fixed Deposits with banks allows individuals and HUFs to claim a tax deduction of up to ₹1,50,000 in a financial year. These deposits have a lock-in period of 5 years. You, however, cannot withdraw this deposit prematurely. But you can avail loans against your FDs at competitive rates. The interest earned on these deposits, however, is taxable marginal rate of tax (as per the tax bracket) of the individual.

Should you invest in ELSS or Tax saving FDs?

Before getting into new investment ventures, people consider a lot of things. Age, investment horizon and risk appetite are a few of the important factors. People who want dual benefits of wealth growth and tax benefits prefer ELSS. For instance, new investors with a long investment horizon and higher risk appetite find ELSS a sensible option. People nearing retirement can invest in tax saving FDs as they tend to have low risks and guaranteed returns over long term (5 year or above atleast).
