  1. In India Maximum Tax Expemtion is Rs.1,00,000/-
    if you take Housing Loan means That principal amount Max: Rs. 1,50,000 DIrectly deducted from your Gross Amount that is the best option for exemption for incometax. If your investment purpose means any mutual funds is better

  2. In India the maximum possible tax exemption u/s 80C is Rs.1,00,000/- . You can invest in ELSS of mutual funds. e.g SBI Magnum Tax Gain 93. Most fund houses have a tax saver fund. (For performance of tax saver funds refer to the answer below). There is a lock-in period of three years for the amount you invest in ELSS.

  4. Invest the surplus in SBI Magnum Tax Gain.

    The lockin period would be 3 Years.
    SBI is a trusted name and a professionaly managed company, hence from a brand confidence point of view, I would suggets that you go ahead with SBI.

    Another option is Bank Fixed Deposit in any nationalized bank, wherein the lockin period would be 5 years.

  5. Maximum deduction allowable u/s 80C is Rs. 1 lac & you have already invested close to Rs. 50k (30+20)(lic+ppf)
    So to save tax you need to invest Rs.50k
    Invest in LIC Ulip plans to diversify your investment and get good returns plus tax saving.
    Also you can withdraw them just one year from investing.
    This is practical approach.
