Investing in Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme

POSTED BY Ram ON June 8, 2012 4:38 pm COMMENTS (3)

Dear All,

I found this forum is useful to clear many doubts. I understood as this is a good forum.

I too have one query. This is regarding IT benefits on Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme.

I understood, anybody who invests Rs 50,000 in equities stands to get income tax deduction on Rs 25000, if annual income is below Rs 10 lakh. Also I understood there is a lock in period of 3 years.

Pl. help me in understanding, Is this 10 lakh is GROSS income or Taxable Gross income?

Also, can you suggest any good fund for investing?

  3. Dear Ram, the RGESS is yet to see the day of light for the exact T & C of the scheme & how to provide the benefits. Jury is not yet out on the same. Let those wise man decide.

    It’s too early to ask for RGESS.
