years.May be after 4 months i may be able to invest another 20000 agian.

Please help.


Dear Rakesh,
First of all, scale down your return expectation of 100% return within 3 years. It is too ambitious. For you age, you can think of Long Term and can go for Good Diversified Funds which would 9 out of 10 times give you best returns among all the other categories of funds.
But, since you have asked about Tax Funds, I will stick to it. Regarding SBI magnum Tax Gain 93, you can read my detailed analysis on my blog www.goodfundadvisor.blogspot.com. I still feel that the funds corpus is too bloated to give comfort. I feel you better split your 2000 into 4 funds of 500 each. And my shortlist is
Birla Sunlife Tax Saver 96
DWS Tax Saving Fund (additional benefit of Free Life Insurance)
Fidelity Tax Advantage Fund
Sundaram Tax Saver Fund

All the above funds have good track record, except for DWS which has been very volatile, but expectedly so because of its smaller corpus. If you want to stick to only two of the above, I recommend Sundaram and Birla.

Regarding stocks for 3-5 years, my picks would be
Fortis Healthcare
Opto Circuits
Tata Chemicals
BOC India
Indraprasta Gas

Split your investments into the above stocks and keep adding them at every fall. These stocks are not very sexy and exciting and hence you would find very few brokers recommending them, but I have not done quite a lengthy research and have no hesitation in recommending to you too.
Best of luck,
Srikanth Shankar Matrubai,
