  1. Franklin Templeton High Growth Fund is good for risk takers. Birla Sun Life MF and Sundaram Paribas Funds are doing well. you may go for the funds managed by these houses.

  4. Hdfc top 200 is good for long term investment, but there also many more good mutual funds .
    Regarding ELSS Sundaram PNB paribas Tax saver, Hdfc tax saver and many more, are good for doing SIP.



  5. HDFC Equity is the best plan for SIP investment. HDFC tax saver plan also best in ELSS. reliance growth also best plan in equity SIP.
