More About This Fund

About Axis Long Term Equity Fund

The fund is an open-ended equity linked savings scheme (ELSS) and comes with a lock-in period of three years. It is one of the most popular schemes for retail investors in this category.

The scheme is a large cap fund in terms of its portfolio as it majorly holds shares of large cap companies. Creating a diversified portfolio of predominantly equity and equity-related securities, the fund aims to generate income and also beat inflation. Any investments made in the fund are free of entry and exit load.

Who Should Invest?

  • Since this is an ELSS, you will be eligible to declare investments in it under Section 80 C of the Income Tax Act amounting to Rs 1.5 lakh in a financial year. As an investor you are tapping into equity as well as saving tax
  • Investing via the SIP mode into the fund could shelter you from market risks and provide you with the dual advantage of power of compounding and rupee cost averaging
  • Since this is an equity-focused fund, it is particularly suitable for you if you seek long term capital growth. The ideal investment horizon should be a minimum of 3 years
  • You should be able to tolerate some amount of risk when investing in the fund. If not, you may consider investing in funds like SBI Bluechip Fund, Axis Bluechip Fund, ICICI Prudential Bluechip Fund that involve lesser risk
  • Being an Equity Linked Savings Scheme, the Axis Long Term Equity Fund has a lock-in period of 3 years, which is considered the lowest among all the tax saving alternatives in the country
  • Nonetheless, if your maximum tax saving investments are exceeding Rs 1.5 lakh, you could at other equity schemes/hybrid schemes or short term debt scheme for wealth creation
  • It is also suggested that you take a look at the CRISIL rating of the fund while making your investment decision, in order to get an idea about the overall performance of the fund over the years, based on its historical return data and portfolio attributes

Will You Pay Tax?

Although investment in the scheme is tax deductible, the returns generated invite levis. The Union Budget of 2018-19 introduced a Long Term Capital Gains tax of 10% on returns exceeding Rs 1 lakh.

For an example –

An individual has ₹2 lakh disposable taxable income in a given financial year, and s/he decides to invest the amount in ELSS. ₹1.5 lakh out of this amount would be exempted from any taxation.₹50,000 would be taxed as per the income tax slab of the investor.

It should be noted that the investment in ELSS remains locked-in for 3 years.

The returns from ELSS are taxed like that from any other equity mutual fund scheme. However, since the units can’t be redeemed before 3 years of investment, only Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% above ₹1 lakh will be levied.

Suppose an investor has made a capital gain of ₹1.5 lakh on investment in this scheme, and withdraws the amount after 1 year of investment, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% would be levied on ₹50000. ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. Hence, the payable tax would be ₹5000.
