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.

India Infrastructure Finance Company Ltd (IIFCL) and Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) have drawn up plans to invest Rs 10,000 crore during 2011-12 in the infrastructure sector, through the take-out financing route.
They have agreed to jointly buy out up to 40 per cent of infrastructure loan portfolios of banks, each having 20 per cent exposure.
“IIFCL will take all the initiatives with the banks regarding the portfolios. We have earmarked a total of Rs 10,000 crore, each investing Rs 5,000 crore, for the current financial year,” S K Goel, chairman IIFCL told Business Standard.
Under the scheme, IIFCL is allowed to take up to 75 per cent of bank loans for an infrastructure project on to its books, thereby freeing banks’ capital and enabling them to lend in new projects.
Since IIFCL has inherent expertise in infrastructure financing, it will carry out all the due diligence of the projects, Goel added.
A senior LIC official said there are some issues that need to be addressed.
“The main issue is the sharing of the liabilities. We are yet to take a call on the extent of liability which LIC can bear in case an asset becomes non-performing. We need to understand the risk carefully before entering into a particular project. Then we also need to understand to what extent we can invest under the sector investment norms,” the official added.
According to the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (Irda) guidelines, LIC’s exposure in a single project is capped at 10 per cent of the total investiable fund. The insurance regulator also mandates life insurers to invest at least 15 per cent of their controlled funds in infrastructure and social sectors.
According to sources, the idea of roping in LIC to partner IIFCL in the take-out financing scheme was mooted by the finance ministry in the wake of the lukewarm response of the take-out financing scheme floated by the infrastructure financier. So far, IIFCL has been able to disburse only Rs 90 crore of the total sanctioned amount of Rs 3,000 crore under the take-out financing scheme.
The government-owned Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) has registered a six per cent increase in market share to 78 per cent of all new life insurance policies bought by customers since April 1 during the current financial year. LIC’s market share at the end of March 31, 2011, had stood at 72 per cent of all new policies sold during the last financial year (2010-11) with the 23 rival life insurance companies, most of which are tied up with international giants, holding 28 per cent share. The combined market share of these companies has now fallen to 22 per cent during the current fiscal, according to the latest figures.
LIC‘s north zone chief Nilesh Sathe said the share of the private sector companies has come down as customers are turning away from the unit-linked life insurance products (ULIPs) offered mainly by the private sector companies as these have become risky because of the volatility in the stock market. Investments in LIC‘s conventional life insurance products that are not linked to the stock market are considered much safer.
However, though in terms of the number of policies LIC has a 78 per cent share, in terms of the percentage of first time premium income the company’s share is at 72.43 per cent. This is because the private sector companies focus more on big ticket premiums, which has given them a larger average income per policy.
The average ticket size of the first premium income of private sector companies works out to Rs 23,293 while the corresponding figure for LIC is Rs 12,806. The average ticket size for the insurance industry as a whole is Rs 15,070. Sathe explained that LIC offers a much wider range of policies, starting at a minimum premium of Rs 250 with life insurance value of Rs 30,000. This enables the public sector company to achieve the social objective of taking its insurance cover to a wider range of the country’s population.
LIC also has the lowest outstanding claims ratio of a mere 0.37 per cent. The figures also show that during 2009-10 while LIC had settled 99.8 per cent of death claims, the private sector companies had settled 96.8 per cent of such claims. There were also variations among the private sector companies with some doing better than others.
Sathe said the LIC claims that have not been settled were mainly due to family disputes with one member moving court against another. “There have been instances where the mother was named the beneficiary of the policy in the case of death but the wife has moved court to assert her claim,” he said. Some claims have also come in the doubtful category as the insured person has died shortly after buying the policy. In such cases, it often turns out that the person had some illness that he had concealed from the company at the time of insurance.
After a gap of two years, Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) has raised bonus by up to 15 per cent for 2010-11.
The country’s largest life insurer, which reported a 10.3 per cent rise in net actuarial surplus at Rs 22,716 crore for 2010-11, compared to Rs 20,586 crore in the previous year, allocated Rs 21,580 crore for paying annual bonus to policyholders.
“The bonus rates have gone up after a gap of two years. We will be providing higher bonus rates under seven plans like Jeevan Anand, Jeevan Tarang, Jeevan Madhur, Child Future Plan, Jeevan Shree I, Jeevan Bharti I and Jeevan Pramukh. This apart, we have also brought in seven other plans under loyalty additions,” a LIC spokesperson told reporters.
In the traditional plans category, which accounts for more than 60 per cent of its incremental sales, the insurer will launch cheaper products, in line with the rates offered by private insurance companies. “Currently, our traditional plans are costlier than offered by the competition. So, we will come out with plans with competitive rates,” he said.
In 2010-11, LIC collected Rs 86,444.7 crore by selling new policies, 22 per cent more than Rs 70,891.5 crore garnered in the previous corresponding period. Total investment in debt and equities stood at Rs 2,00,000 crore and the solvency margins improved to 154.07 per cent from 153.96 per cent.
