Don't we all like making money? Especially if our money grows in value even as we save tax?
Interested? Well, it's not too difficult. One of your options is investing in tax saving mutual funds (ELSS). Those of you who invested in ELSS funds last year must be pretty happy.
According to Value Research, a premier mutual fund research company, investing in certain ELSS funds would have seen the value of your money grow by more than 50 per cent in the last one year.
Simply put, if you had invested Rs 10,000 on June 21, 2006, it would have multiplied to more than Rs 15,000 by June 22, 2007.
What's more, an investment of Rs 1,00,000 in these funds under Section 80C would have been exempt from tax. This would have helped you save on your taxes as well as earn good returns on your investments.
