Also, these funds have a lock-in period of 3 years, which is lower than most other tax saving instruments. Why these funds are preferred by investors is because they provide good returns because they invest in equities. However, they are risky instruments and can be considered at par any normal equity fund, when it comes to the risk-reward structure.

  • Fully Transparent: If you have invested in any of the conventional tax saving instruments, then you must have noticed that they don’t show the securities in which they have invested in. But, this is not the case with ELSS mutual funds. You can easily check the stocks and sectors in which they have invested in and can guide your investments according to that. 
  • Lower Lock-in Period: Lock-in period of a scheme is the time for which you will not be able to redeem your investments. ELSS funds have a lock-in period of just 3 years, which is the lowest among all the tax saving instruments under section 80C. This is one of the major reasons behind the increasing popularity of these schemes.
