Loan can be availed under this plan any time after completion of first policy year and subject to terms and conditions as the company may specify from time to time.

Buying a life insurance contract is a long term commitment. However, surrender value is available under the plan on earlier termination of the contract.

The Guaranteed Surrender Value allowable shall be as under:

  1. First year:  70% of the Single premium excluding service tax and extra premium, if any
  2. Thereafter: 90% of the Single premium excluding service tax and extra premium, if any.

In addition, the surrender value of vested simple reversionary bonuses, if any, shall also be payable, which is equal to vested bonuses multiplied by the surrender value factor applicable to vested bonuses. These factors will depend on the policy term and policy year in which the policy is surrendered and specified as below:

The Corporation may, however, pay Special Surrender Value as applicable as on date of surrender provided the same is higher than Guaranteed Surrender Value.

  1. TAXES:  

Taxes, if any, shall be as per the Tax laws and the rate of tax as applicable from time to time.

The amount of tax payable as per the prevailing rates shall be payable by the policyholder on premiums including extra premiums, if any. The amount of Tax paid shall not be considered for the calculation of benefits payable under the plan.

  1. COOLING-OFF PERIOD:

If the policyholder is not satisfied with the “Terms and Conditions” of the policy, the policy may be returned to the Corporation within 15 days from the date of receipt of the policy stating the reason of objections. On receipt of the same the Corporation shall cancel the policy and return the amount of single premium deposited after deducting the proportionate risk premium for the period on cover, charges for medical examination, special reports, if any, and stamp duty.

  1. EXCLUSIONS:

The policy shall be void if the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide at any time within 12 months from the date of commencement of risk and the Corporation will not entertain any claim under this policy except to the extent of 90% of the single premium paid excluding taxes and any extra premium paid.
