Equity Linked Savings Schemes (ELSS) are tax saving mutual funds. ELSS funds provide dual benefits for its investors of capital appreciation and tax saving. ELSS mutual funds come with a lock in period of three years. Investors are allowed to claim tax deductions under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961 up to Rs. 1.5 lakh in a financial year.
