    Hello Amit,
    Firstly, i hope you are aware that 80C deduction is maximum Rs 150000 permissible. And your investments which are LIC, PPF and expenditure such as tuition fees sums up more than Rs 150000.
    Hence investing in NSC is not agood idea because NSC will not bear any fruits for you in matter of tax savings.Your 80C deduction is already fully utilised.
    My suggestion is invest in NPS,where you can get extra deduction of Rs 50,000 apart from from 80C deduction, this way you dont have to invest in mutual funds.
    For more investment advice on tax savings and queries on any other matters, you may reach me at [email protected]

    Thanks sir for your quick answer which is very valuable for me. Thanks a lot.
    But PPF as 40000 I have shown in my company. I have actually not invested in it. So what would be your sugestion here. Shall I go with NSC or NPS?
