Stability in terms of exit of funds
Due to lock in period of 3 years, the fund manager has the opportunity to invest for long term as he does not have to worry about sudden redemption pressure.
Compared to other tax savings avenues under Section 80C of the Income Tax, ELSS has the shortest lock-in period of 3 years.
