No lock-in period obligation

These funds have a lock-in period but the speciality is that even after that they can continue to invest in it. A scheme with a lock-in period of 3 years or 5 years can also be held for a long time. Keeping it for a longer period increases the chance of increasing returns. The advantage of having a lock-in period is, it holds the investor for a long period, which also increases the scope of increasing returns.

Redemption Amount Tax-Free

The return on investment in ELSS and the amount of redemption is also completely tax free. ELSS gives better post-tax returns, as LTCG is exempted from income tax up to Rs 1 lakh a year from ELSS mutual funds. Taxes at the rate of 10 per cent have to be paid for profits exceeding this limit. Talking about investing in ELSS, at least 80 percent of this exposure is in equity. It can technically be up to 100 percent. It also has the flexibility to invest in all market caps.

Good option in inflationary times

ELSS usually gives high returns. Investing in equity effectively provides better returns that are higher than the regular inflation rate. On the other hand, most tax-saving options with fixed returns such as PPF, 5-year FD, NSC, etc. are hardly able to give higher returns than inflation. At the same time, the interest rates on options like FD, NSC are continuously decreasing.
