Dear Sumit,
Mutual Funds are the best avenue for Tax Savings.
The Best ELSS/Tax Saving Fund is that which is not Baised towards any Sector or Theme and my Pick would be :
1. Birla Sunlife Tax Relief 96 Fund
2. DWS Tax Saving Fund
3. Fidelity Tax Advantage Fund
4. Franklin Tax Shield fund
5. Principal Personal Tax Saver
6. Sundaram Tax Saver
I am not in favour of SBI Magnum Tax Gain 93, which is everyone's favourite, mainly because of its bloated fund size.
My favourite in recent past has been DWS Tax Saving Fund, not only because of good performance since its inception but also because it offers Free Life Insurance upto 5 times your investment.

HDFC Tax Saver is also a good choice but keep in mind that it is a Mid-Cap Oriented Fund.
Franklin Tax Shield has not been performing very well since the last 2-3 years but due to its Focus on Large Caps, it should be a Good Performer going forward.

Best of luck,
Srikanth shankar matrubai,
