     There are many tax saving plans available in the market which you can opt. I personally have opted for Birla Sun Life tax saving plan which allows reducing taxable income by up to Rs. 1 Lakh. Here are some details about the tax reckoner for the year 2012-13. Have a look at it and decide yourself which suits you the best.

     Elss invest primarily in equities. Investment in ELSS mutual funds can be done up to the limit of 1 lakh under section 80C. Consider investing in ELSS funds for a longer duration since equities deliver only in the  long run. You can consider Canara robecco equity tax saver or ICICI pru tax plan considering their performance in the past 5 years.

    You can invest in Canara Robeco Equity Taxsaver. In case you prefer a fund with lower volatility and tilt towards large cap, Franklin India Tax shield can also be a good choice. Abhinav Gulechha CFP
