Tax saving MF 3 years locking period

If i invest in tax saving MF with 3 years lock in period in year 2018. Do i still need to do tax saving investment in 2019 & 2020.
Or can i show the same saving as done in 2018 as tax saving proof for 2019 & 2020.

Please help

Invested amount in ELSS fund is applicable only for that particular Financial Year. Next FY you need to invest again for availing tax exemption.

@TUSHAR_DHOTE The 3 year lock in period is to encourage long term investments and prevent investors from pre mature withdrawal of their mutual fund investments.It doesn’t mean you can show the same proof for the subsequent years.From the point of view of tax exemption, the investments done in a year are only valid for that particular financial year.
