Frequently Asked Questions

What is ELSS?

How much tax can be saved by investing in ELSS?

It depends upon the tax bracket an investor falls in. In the highest tax bracket of 30%, if the investment in ELSS is Rs. 1,50,000 , investor can save upto 46,350*. Given the investments in ELSS are made in the equity markets, the returns are much higher than most investment options with tax saving benefits in the longer run.

Should my first mutual fund investment be in ELSS?

Yes, until you consume your saving limit of upto Rs. 1.5 Lac Rupees under section 80C, your investments in mutual funds must go in a ELSS fund through SIP mode.

Is there an exit load on ELSS?

ELSS as an investment option has a lock in period of 3 years and the investor is not allowed to redeem his/her investment. After the lock in period, there is no exit load but the investor can choose to stay invested.

How long should I stay Invested?

When you want to plan for long term goals, you should also stay invested for a longer period of time. The minimum period is 3 years. However, based on the different life goals you have in mind, investment for a span of 5-10 years is advisable.

In ELSS, do SIPs give better returns than lump sum investments?

It depends on the market conditions. If the volatility is high in the market, SIP will give better return than lump sum because you can buy units at a lower cost. On the other hand, if volatility is low in the market, SIPs will give lower returns than lump sum investments, because you will be buying units at a higher price.

Are returns on ELSS taxed?

After 3 years returns from ELSS will be taxed under Long term capital gain (LTCG).
