Best way to invest in the stock market is to either invest through SIP(systematic investment plan) or invest when the markets are down. It’s not easy to find the bottom of the market. So it is advisable to follow the route of SIP while investing in mutual funds.
For the salaried class people, investment in ELSS mutual fund is one of the best option. we can invest as low as 500/- per investment through SIP and also claim IT deduction upto Rs 150000/- under section 80 C. ELSS schemes have a lock in period of three years, which happens to be lowest lock in period among all the options available under section 80 C. If you are planning investment through SIP, you can start any time as it averages out the purchase price over a period of time.
