ELSS -Good way to start

For salaried class who pay income tax and not investing in equity/ equity MF, ELSS fundwould be the best way to start investing in MFs.
This is because.
1) You start an investment for tax saving and straight away get a return equal to your income tax rate notionally. This takes you off the initial fear of investing in equity.
2) The Lock-in period of 3 years allows you to get a feel of equity market.both ups and downs.
3) The confidence you gain by investing in ELSS can then be extended to equity investing.
SIP should be the preferred way to invest in ELSS too. More on ELSS
ELSS= Equity Linked Savings Scheme. Investment in this fund upto Rs.100000 can be used for availing tax exemption.

Hi, i am a regular reader if ur blog. i wanted to bring out a point so to why is it that the govt body like sebi allow sharks like rpl to eat up the little fish like us.. for eg. RPL under SEBI Scanner.. the drop from 290 to 195 has been completely operated. thats the news all over.. check this link of financial express and live mint


Between November 1 and November 6, 2007, a particular group made short sales of 10crore shares of Reliance Petroleum in the futures segment of National Stock Exchange costing Rs.3,000 crores approximately. they made a cool Rs 1,000 crores in less than a month, because the Reliance Petroleum shares have now crashed from Rs.295 to Rs 195 per share!. These guys have made Rs.100 per share.

isnt it ironic that someone knew that RIL was going to sell a huge quantity of shares and the prices were bound to come down?

My 2nd question is Who financed these traders for their margins? Where has this profit gone? and who bore the loss???

Its innocent small investors who bought Reliance Petroleum shares at the high prices, not knowing that this unholy alliance was indulging in insider trading and making illegal profits while Mukesh Ambani's own company RIL was selling shares without disclosing this to investors!!
