LIC OF INDIA has launched another new product LIC JEEVAN VRIDDHI. It is a single premium non-market linked plan which provides for payment of Guaranteed Maturity Sum Assured along with Loyalty Addition, on maturity. Under this plan death benefit is the Basic Sum Assured. The benefits and other details of this plan are given below.
At the end of the policy term, maturity benefit equal to the Guaranteed Maturity Sum Assured along with Loyalty Addition, shall be payable. Guaranteed Maturity Sum Assured will depend on the entry age of the Policyholder and the single premium excluding extra premium, if any.
Case 1: If someone who is in 30% tax slab invest Rs 1,00,000/- in it he will save Rs30,000/- as tax benefit so his net investment becomes Rs 70,000/- and on which he is getting Rs 2,21,651 which is 100% tax free so the net yield in this plan is more than 12%.
Case 2: If the investor is in 30% tax slab and his 1lac limit of secton 80 C already used, even it is great investment for him as if he had invested in banks he has to pay the taxes on maturity @30% (Rs 121651 @ 30% = 36495 goes in taxes ) but here in LIC JEEVAN VRIDDHI he is not taxed at all so still it is a good investment.
On death of the life assured during the policy term, Basic Sum Assured i.e. 5 times of single premium excluding extra premium, if any, shall be payable.
