What are ELSS funds?

They are open-ended equity mutual funds that are eligible for tax deductions under Section 80C of the Indian Income Tax Act. They have the dual advantage of growing your wealth in addition to saving tax.

ELSS funds provide the best combination of

  • Potential for long-term inflation-beating returns (14-16%)
  • Lowest lock in period (only 3 years) among all tax saving under 80C investments and
  • Zero tax on your income from investment

Like all equity funds, the returns on ELSS funds are not guaranteed but this is the historical average for long-term investments in ELSS funds.
