The main purpose of investing for most investors is tax saving. Equity linked saving schemes (ELSS) are those mutual fund schemes that help you save taxes as well as generate decent returns. But, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? Here is a list of few ELSS schemes that you should consider for investing.

The main purpose of investing for most investors is tax saving. Equity linked saving schemes (ELSS) are those mutual fund schemes that help you save taxes as well as generate decent returns. But, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? Here is a list of few ELSS schemes that you should consider for investing.

The true measure of ELSS scheme’s worth is consistency. Following four ELSS schemes make the cut based on their 5 years, 3 years and 1 year performance put together (see tables). These schemes have remained in the Top 10 ELSS schemes for all these durations :

  • Canara Robeco Equity Tax Saver
  • HDFC Taxsaver
  • Sahara Tax Gain
  • Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96

Investment in ELSS schemes qualify for deductions under section 80C. So, you could max your returns by investing the entire Rs 1 lakh limit of your Section 80C deductions through ELSS investments alone. However, be cautious as ELSS schemes have a risk grade higher than other investments that qualify under section 80C such as life insurance, PPF, NSC, etc.

Another important factor to consider is the lock-in period. ELSS schemes have a 3 year lock-in, that means you can not sell the investment before this period.

The following 3 tables lists the Top 10 ELSS Schemes in descending order of their 5 years, 3 years and 1 year returns. This may help you in selecting the best ELSS scheme for your needs.
