However, the vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses shall remain attached to the reduced paid up policy. In case of a paid up policy, no future survival benefits shall be payable.

This percentage will depend on the policy term and policy year in which the policy is surrendered
and specified as below:
In addition, the surrender value of any 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 policy is
surrendered and specified as below:
Corporation may, however, pay Special Surrender value, if it is more favorable to the Policyholder.
In addition to the payable Surrender Value, if the option to defer the Survival Benefit(s) has been

these increased Survival Benefit(s) (as specified in para 2a above) shall also be paid.

subject to the terms and conditions as the Corporation may specify from time to time.
Taxes including Service Tax, if any, shall be as per the Tax laws and the rate of tax shall be as
applicable from time to time.
The amount of tax 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

12. Cooling-off period:

objections. On receipt of the same the Corporation shall cancel the policy and return the amount of
premium deposited after deducting the proportionate risk premium (for basic plan and rider, if

i. If the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide at any time within 12 months
from the date of commencement of risk, the Corporation will not entertain any claim under
this policy except for 80% of the premiums paid excluding any taxes and extra premium, if
any, provided the policy is inforce. This clause shall not be applicable in case age at entry of
the Life Assured is below 8 years.
ii. If the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide within 12 months from date of
revival, an amount which is higher of 80% of the premiums paid till the date of death
(excluding any taxes and extra premium, if any,) or the surrender value shall be payable. The
Corporation will not entertain any other claim under this policy. This clause shall not be
a) in case the age of the Life Assured is below 8 years at the time of revival; or
b) for a policy lapsed without acquiring paid-up value and nothing shall be payable
under such policies.
“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.”
i) This illustration is applicable to a standard (from medical) life.
ii) 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.
iii) 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.

decision is based.

deceive the insurer or to induce the insurer to issue a life insurance policy:
a. The suggestion, as a fact of that which is not true and which the insured does not believe to be
b. The active concealment of a fact by the insured having knowledge or belief of the fact;
c. Any other act fitted to deceive; and
d. Any such act or omission as the law specifically declares to be fraudulent.
4. Mere silence is not fraud unless, depending on circumstances of the case, it is the duty of the
insured or his agent keeping silence to speak or silence is in itself equivalent to speak.
5.No Insurer shall repudiate a life insurance Policy on the ground of Fraud, if the Insured /
beneficiary can prove that the misstatement was true to the best of his knowledge and there was no
deliberate intention to suppress the fact or that such mis-statement of or
suppression of material fact are within the knowledge of the insurer. Onus of disproving is upon the
policyholder, if alive, or beneficiaries.
6. Life insurance Policy can be called in question within 3 years on the ground that any statement of or
suppression of a fact material to expectancy of life of the insured was incorrectly made in the
proposal or other document basis which policy was issued or revived or rider issued. For this, the
insurer should communicate in writing to the insured or legal representative or nominee or
assignees of insured, as applicable, mentioning the ground and materials on which decision to
repudiate the policy of life insurance is based.
7. In case repudiation is on ground of mis-statement and not on fraud, the premium collected on
policy till the date of repudiation shall be paid to the insured or legal representative or nominee or
assignees of insured, within a period of 90 days from the date of repudiation.
8. Fact shall not be considered material unless it has a direct bearing on the risk undertaken by the
insurer. The onus is on insurer to show that if the insurer had been aware of the said fact, no life
insurance policy would have been issued to the insured.
9. The insurer can call for proof of age at any time if he is entitled to do so and no policy shall be
deemed to be called in question merely because the terms of the policy are adjusted on subsequent
proof of age of life insured. So, this Section will not be applicable for questioning age or adjustment
based on proof of age submitted subsequently.
