Statutory warning:
“Some benefits are guaranteed and some benefits are variable with returns based on the future performance of your Insurer carrying on life insurance business.  If your policy offers guaranteed returns then these will be clearly marked “guaranteed” in the illustration table on this page.  If your policy offers variable returns then the illustrations on this page will show two different rates of assumed future investment returns.  These assumed rates of return are not guaranteed and they are not the upper or lower limits of what you might get back, as the value of your policy is dependent on a number of factors including future investment performance.”










Notes:
  1.  The Single Premium shown above is exclusive of tax.


  2. This illustration is applicable to a non-smoker male/female standard (from medical, life style and occupation point of view) life.


  3. The non-guaranteed benefits (1) and (2) in above illustration are calculated so that they are consistent with the Projected Investment Rate of Return assumption of 4% p.a.(Scenario 1) and 8% p.a. (Scenario 2) respectively. In other words, in preparing this benefit illustration, it is assumed that the Projected Investment Rate of Return that LICI will be able to earn throughout the term of the policy will be 4% p.a. or 8% p.a., as the case may be. The Projected Investment Rate of Return is not guaranteed.


  4. The main objective of the illustration is that the client is able to appreciate the features of the product and the flow of benefits in different circumstances with some level of quantification.

      1. Revival:
      If premiums are not paid within the grace period then the policy will lapse. A lapsed policy can be revived within a period of 2 consecutive years from the date of first unpaid premium but before the date of maturity by paying all the arrears of premium together with interest (compounding half-yearly) at such rate as fixed by the Corporation from time to time subject to submission of satisfactory evidence of continued insurability.
      The Corporation reserves the right to accept at original terms, accept at revised terms or decline the revival of a discontinued policy. The revival of discontinued policy shall take effect only after the same is approved by the Corporation and is specifically communicated to the Policyholder.
      Revival of rider(s), if opted for, will be considered along with revival of the Basic Policy and not in isolation.
      1. Paid-up Value:
      If at least three full years’ premiums have been paid and any subsequent premiums be not duly paid, this policy shall not be wholly void, but shall continue as a paid-up policy. The Basic Sum Assured under the policy shall be reduced to such a sum, called Paid-up Sum Assured and shall be equal to [(Number of premiums paid / Total Number of premiums payable) x Basic Sum Assured] less Total amount of survival benefits already paid under the policy.
      The policy so reduced shall thereafter be free from all liabilities for payment of the premiums, but shall not be entitled to participate in future profits. However, the vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses shall remain attached to the reduced paid-up policy.
      Notwithstanding the benefits available under a fully inforce policy, in the case of a reduced paid up policy, no survival benefits shall be payable and the paid-up value along with the vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses, if any, shall be payable only in lump-sum on the expiry of policy term or death of life assured, if earlier.
      Rider(s) shall not acquire any paid-up value and the rider benefits cease to apply, if policy is in lapsed condition.
      1. Surrender Value:
      The policy can surrendered for cash provided atleast three full years’ premiums have been paid. The Guaranteed Surrender value shall be percentage of total premiums paid (net of service tax) excluding extra premiums and premiums for riders, if opted for less any survival benefits already paid. This percentage will depend on the policy year in which the policy is surrendered and specified as below:
