ELSS are to be perceived as an instrument different from a Non-ELSS Fund. If compared, ELSS will have lower yield. Look at ELSS as an investment bridging the gap to reach the 1.5 lac limit and giving you flexibility and returns a little better than the PPF or Term Insurance.

Tax-saving is a crucial element in every salaried person’s life so, plan carefully your investment. Some of the investment that not only gives your growth and return of the stock market but also an exemption in your tax liability. Section 80C and 80D of Income Tax laws give a detailed information about tax-saving. Some of these are as follows:

Investment

Under Income tax law Section 80C

All these investment should be upto Rs.1.5 lakhs to get a claim a deduction of Rs. 1.5 lakhs

1

Investment in Public Provident Fund (PPF) with lock-in period of 5 years

2

ELSS Funds with lock-in period 3 years

3

Investment in National Savings Certificate with lock-in period of 5 years

4

5-Year Bank Fixed Deposit

5

National Pension System (NPS) lock-in period is till retirement.

6

Life Insurance Premium

7

Home loan

Medical Insurance

Under Income tax law Section 80C

Can claim a deduction up to Rs. 25,000. Senior Citizens can can claim deduction upto Rs 50,000

1

Premium of Medical Insurance

As per the above segregation you can save upto Rs. 1.5 lakhs + Rs. 25000

You have already invested in ELSS funds and that’s a good option. Don’t panic at the current market scenario. It is a bearish market and so your both investment is not looking lucrative. I would suggest you to hold patience on these two funds till 1 or two years as 1.5 years is very less time, plus the bearish market will go and you might then your funds might perform well and then you can sell or redeem them.
