      Dear Asal,
      I am not going to invest in 3 tax saving funds. I will invest in only one. I have asked for 3 top mfs because out of these 3, I will decide to invest in one.
      So far as break up of my 1L investment in various tax saving instruments is concerned, it is as follows:

      1. Life Insurance : Rs. 25000
      2. Mutual Funds : Rs. 20000
      3. EPF : Rs. 45000
      4. Fixed deposit : Rs. 10000

      Thanks

      1. Dear Amit, please invest in HDFC Tax saver with 2K SIP.

        Thanks

    Why 3?

    And no, you need not put your money for 10 years in ELSS.

      I know that locking period is 3 years only. But I will remain invested if there will be better return in long term.

      1. Ramesh says:

        Why don’t you choose one, and ask us, if that is good or not?

        I will go for Franklin’s tax saver fund.
