LIC Dhan Varsha

Dhan Varsha (Plan No. 866, UIN No. 512N349V01) plan from LIC is a newly launched, non-participating, non-linked, savings, individual life insurance plan that provides an opportunity for the policyholder to combine protection with savings.

Key Attributes Of LIC Dhan Varsha Plan

Some of the key features of the plan are as follows:

  • Loan Facility: After three months from the policy’s completion (i.e., three months from the date of issuance of the policy), or after the expiration of the free-look period, whichever comes later, a loan may be obtained under this plan at any time during the policy term, subject to the terms and conditions that the corporation may from time to time specify.
  • Free Look Period: The policy may be returned to the company within 30 days of the date of receipt of the electronic or physical mode of the Policy Document, whichever is sooner if the policyholder is dissatisfied with the “Terms and Conditions” of the policy.

The plan offers the following benefits to the policyholder:

Working On LIC Dhan Varsha Plan

Let’s understand the working of the plan with a suitable example.

Mr. Kumar, a 30 years old healthy male, purchases the Option 2 variant of the LIC Dhan Varsha plan. Other details of the plan are as follows:

  • Policy Term: 15 Years
  • Basic Sum Assured: Rs. 10,00,000
  • Sum Assured On Death: Rs. 79,87,000
  • GST Rate: 4.50%
  • Single Premium (Without GST): Rs. 7,98,700
  • Single Premium (With GST): Rs. 8,34,642

Now, let’s take a look at different scenarios!

If Mr. Kumar dies in the 10th policy year.

The nominee will get the following amounts:

Sum Assured On Death: Single Premium Paid X 10: Rs. 83,46,420

Guaranteed Additions: Rs. (40 X 10,00,000/1,000) X 10: Rs. 4,00,000

If Mr. Kumar survives the policy term of 15 years.

He will get the following amounts:

Basic Sum Assured: Rs. 10,00,000

Guaranteed Benefits For 15 Years: Rs. (40 X 10,00,000/1,000) X 15: Rs. 6,00,000

Therefore, the final maturity benefit will be Rs. 16,00,000.

Exclusion Under LIC Dhan Varsha Plan

If the policyholder dies by suicide during the first year after purchasing the insurance, the nominee will be entitled to receive 80% of the single premium paid. Only policyholders who are older than 8 may make this claim.
