How to get 8% interest rates on your investment post demonetization?

Demonetization brought forth a challenge for all the investors. The share market went down drastically and the interest rates of banks are expected to go down due to the huge inflow of money into the banks. Is there any investment in the near by future where the interest rates are not volatile to the changing economy?

The investment plans like FD and RD gives us the opportunity for getting returns at the interest rates during the time of our deposit. Let’s look into the interest rates provided by the SBI on Term deposits.

In the year 2012 we can see the interest rates provided by SBI in the below table.

 Likewise we can see the rates for the year 2015. From these tables we can say that the interest rates are not constant and are liable to change at any period of a month.

Currently the interest rates provided by SBI are given in the above table. This was updated in November 2016. From these tables we can say that the rates are decreasing year by year. Is there a way to get interest rates above 8% by investing now? Yes.

LIC provides an investment plan where you can get higher returns. Hurry! Now is the time to apply or enquire about the NEW ENDOWMENT POLICY. Let’s see what is this Endowment policy? What are the benefits of the policy?

NEW ENDOWMENT PLAN is a pure investment plan with high bonus and liquidity facility incorporated. The Sum Assured along with accrued Bonus and Final Additional bonus (if any) will be paid at the end of the policy term. The policy term is from 12 years to 35 years. You can choose term for investment say 16 years or 20 years. The policy term depends on the age of the person taking the policy.

Let’s say you are planning an investment of Rs. 10,00,000 over a span of 16 years. For this plan, you will be required to pay a premium of approximately 65,000 (inclusive of tax) per year or a half yearly premium of Rs. 33,000 or you can pay quarterly or monthly payment also. Now at the end of 16 years you will be paid a lump sum of around 17,32,000 to 20,04,000.

The perks of this policy apart from yielding high interest are

1.     Tax exemption for the premium paid.

2.     Tax free Maturity benefit: Basic sum with bonus + Final addition bonus (for policies with term above 15)

3.     Loan facility

4.     Accidental death and disability benefit rider available.

Insurance for people in their early 40’s

            In this fast paced world, everything is being done either earlier or late. In 20th century, jobs were provided only by government sector by which all educated people struggled till late 30’s to get a government posting. This has changed and led by a mushroom growth of private sector jobs, and opening of markets to foreign investments. Graduates were settling in early 20’s itself. People who have invested in different financial products and failed to realize benefits from them, finally give a try with insurance products. It may take a little more time to realize the importance of insurance. But, if you reach 40’s and then realize that insurance is important, choices will be limited, but not exhausted.

Pension plans will provide optimum results for people who want to start investing in their 40’s. This pension funds will provide pension as monthly salary after the vesting date of the policy. Pension plans are necessary as they will keep life style intact even after retirement.

We will understand this by an example.
Mr. Gaurav Arora
Age: 42
Annual Income: Rs. 10 Lacs
Marital status: Married
Children: 2
Retirement age: 58 yrs

Based on his requirement he can invest only for 16 years and need monthly pension for his future needs.

Given below is the recommended plan for pension.

Plan: New endowment plan

Policy term: 16 years
Sum Assured: Rs.18 Lacs
Monthly premium: Rs. 10,035

This policy will provide a lump sum of Rs. 36 lacs after 16 years of policy completion. This amount can also be used to generate a monthly pension.

Monthly pension: Rs 21,240
Pension: Till death of policy holder

After the death of policy holder the whole lump sum amount of Rs. 36 lacs will be given to their nominee.

The above policy will have tax exemptions for the premiums being paid and also the lump sum being received. Pension received was not tax exempted and it will be added to the income of the policy holder.

Jeevan Nidhi was promoted as flagship pension plan by LIC. But, it has many cons compared to New endowment plan. The amount can’t be taken as lump sum, only pension option can be opted. Tax exemption is unavailable for pension which we receive, which will result in huge tax cuttings. The premiums paid and returns will be less compared to New endowment plan. Taking all the advantages into consideration, endowment plan is a breather for late enrollers of insurance, which can still provide great returns without huge investment and risk being involved.

Taking insurance in 40’s is not late, if sufficient funds are being allocated and right product was selected.

Insurance for new parents

With the entry of a new born in the family, the responsibilities will also increase for the entire family members especially for the parents of the new kid. This will burden the bread winner financially in future. Planning beforehand will ease the financial burden. LIC has introduced children’s plan taking into consideration of children’s education and wedding requirements. Plans can be taken when the kid is just 10 days old, and maturity benefits will start from 18th age of the child.

Academic fees have sky rocketed by 500% in the last decade. Higher education has became a high income class affair. To counter this financial backlog, early insurance on children will provide relief.
Everyone wants their children to be well educated .Parents want their children to be engineers, doctors or CA’s. These are professional studies which need huge amounts. The fee will at least   triple in next 18 years based on inflation and country’s economic growth rate.

We will try to understand the costs involved in pursuing Engineering after 18 years.
Year: 2016
Engineering college fee: Rs.8 Lacs (IIT’s)

Considering inflation prices would raise minimum 3 times, which would result in hike of academic fees.
Based on these situations, it would as below.

Year : 2034
Engineering college fee: Rs.24 Lacs (IIT’s)
So, Rs. 24 Lacs needs to fulfill his dreams to study at premier institute like IIT or NIT.

To make it up for this situation, Sum assured of Rs.12 lacs need to be taken under children’s plans which will give returns in regular intervals from 18th year and maturity benefits will be provided at the end of policy term.

Children’s policies had an exceptional feature, “Premium waiver raider” by which premium payments will be waived off in case of parent’s demise. Policy benefits will be provided as usually to the child.

Premiums paid will be exempted under 80C, which can save you Rs.45,000 per year and the returns are exempted under 10(10(D)) which can save you minimum Rs. 2,50,000 at the maturity period.

Children’s plans will not only provide financial cushion for higher education, but also will help in tax savings at the same time. Returns from LIC policies are better than bank deposits taking tax into consideration .LIC products will have insurance as default, which will secure families from financial instabilities.

If you are in your 20's, have a glance !

Many youngsters after settling down in their late 20's or early 30's, start thinking over investment options. With increase in the upper middle class, the investment segment got a huge push in the last decade. This segment is set to grow multifold in the next 2 decades with India’s GDP growth rate expected to be at 8% for a minimum of atleast next 5 years. Our previous generation started evaluating their investment options only in late 40's because of their settlement age being the late 30's. But with raise in service sector, the settlement age of individuals got pushed down to late 20's or early 30’s. This early settlement gave extra buffer to carefully evaluate various available options before investing.

Buffer time gave raise to investing in riskier segments like stock markets which were handled only by full time investors earlier. Banking and Financial sector which used to be a rich class affair, now has become a middle class part time job due to hybrid financial products like mutual funds and ULIPs. The wider financial portfolio to park their income has led them to greater confusion. This needs to be solved by carefully examining the available funds, risk, target of investment and available opportunities in investment.  All the earning class need to invest in plans not only to secure their family from financial instabilities but also to gain better returns based on their risk appetite. For a low risk taking customer, fixed deposits and recurring deposits would be luring. But insurance can provide them better returns with assured financial security for family. In a developing country like India, the GDP growth rate should be constantly clocking 7% plus to make it a developed nation. To attain this status, RBI needs to cut bank rate constantly so that economic activity gradually improves. To keep the growth rate intact, base rates will be reduced and Fixed Deposit (FD) rate may reach as low as 4% within 5 years. From January 2016 to October 2016, base rate of banks were down from 7.75% to 6.25%. This will be directly reflecting in banks’ lending and borrowing interest rates. This will also impact the FD and RD rates of customers who are opening new FD & RD accounts. Though the FD and RD rates won’t be changed for the existing customers, customers will face the heat during renewal. The reduction of interest rate by 1.5% within 10 months is just a starting point for rate cuts and it would continue. The customers who think of investing in FD’s or RD’s which are poised to provide you only 5.5% to 6.0% will be a concern even for the low risk customer segment. But most of the insurance products deliver 7% interest rate along with life cover. People who invest in FD’s have the money locked in it only for 5 years. Those who open new FD accounts in future would get less than 4%. This is only half of the returns provided by most of the traditional insurance products. Insurance has become a smarter choice over banking to investment due to base rate cuts which is being done every quarter since 2014.

How to take loan on LIC policy

Loan can be availed on LIC products after completion of 3 years policy term. This feature is available with New endowment plan, New Jeevan Anand, Single Premium Endowment Plan, New Bima Bachat, New money back plan, Jeevan Labh, Jeevan Lakshya and New Bima Diamond. Loans won’t be given on children’s plans, pension plans, ULIP plans and terms plans.

For policies with 10 or more than 10 years of premium payment term, 3 full year premium should have been paid for the policy to be eligible to take a loan. For policies with less than 10 years premium payment term, 2 full year premium should have been paid.

Loan calculation:

Loan limit can be checked in the below link.

This amount has arrived by taking the last 15 years bonus history of LIC and this is just a approximate value.

Surrender value can be calculated from below link.

As a standard rate 80% of the surrender value can be taken as loan.

Interest rate:
Interest charged on loan against policy was pegged flat 9.5% per annum which would be compounded annually.

Loan re-payment:

The borrower will be given two options for loan re-payment.

1. He/she can repay loan with his own funds and continue the policy. This has to be paid before the policy term ends.
2. He/she can complete the premium payments and maturity amount will be given after loan deductions.

The loan value arrived would be too low if the sum assured is less or if  loan was taken as early as 3rd year because the surrender value would be very less and loan value will be still lower .So, taking loan when policy nearing maturity or taking higher sum assured will get you higher loan value.

Application Process:
Policyholder needs to submit a letter requesting for loan in home branch LIC, along with bank details to which the loan amount would be transferred through NEFT. This usually takes 7-10 days to release loan amount.

What to do if my LIC policy ECS fails

If you had activated the ECS or direct debit payment mode on your LIC policy, the premium will be debited from your bank account on a specified ECS date. But unfortunately, the ECS for your policy may fail due to reasons like insufficient funds in your bank account. If your ECS has failed, your next ECS due will not also be debited from your bank account until you pay your pending due to the current ECS failure.

                For paying the due amount of your failed ECS, you shall pay the outstanding due with any late fees and bank charges by visiting any of the LIC’s branch offices. It’s not necessary that you have to go to your home branch office. You shall pay it as Cash or Cheque towards – Life Insurance Corporation of India. Once you had paid the pending due at any of the counters, your next due ECS would go normal.

                Consider if you are paying premium for your LIC policy on monthly premium payment mode through ECS from your bank account and your policy premium due date is 13th of every month. In this case, your monthly ECS date would be 15th of every month. So, your policy premium would be deducted from your bank account on 15th of every month or if 15th is a bank holiday, then premium would be deducted on the next working day. If the ECS has failed for a particular month, then you shall pay your pending dues within 28th of the same month without any late, since 15 days of late fee free grace period are given for all the LIC policies with monthly premium payment mode. Still, you will have to pay the bank charges of Rs.125 for the ECS failure. If you are paying the pending due post 28th of the month, you will have to pay the next month due in addition with the current month due. So totally, you have to pay 2 month due at once along with the late fee for the current month due and the bank charges.


Insurance for Children

“Better late than never” suits perfectly for policies on children. Child policies have an entry age limit of 13 – 14 yrs based on company or policy. Child policies are targeted at providing funds for the higher education or marriage needs of the child. Life Insurance Corporation of India was the only insurance company till the year 2000, before the Indian government had opened insurance market for private players. This move has revolutionized the insurance industry, leading to the creation of customized child insurance products based on customer specific needs. FDI has opened the gates for innovation in insurance products which were successful in western countries. Most of the western world’s players had entered the local Indian market in collaboration with local players. These players introduced new products in the Indian insurance market.

                LIC had a standard format of paying premium for their products in tranches for 15+ years and the policy holder used to receive the lump sum maturity amount only at the time of policy maturity. These products have only life cover as their default feature. This structure has changed with the entry of private players.

                LIC has 2 products in its portfolio customized for child’s future needs. Jeevan Tarun and New Children Money Back plan are children specific plans with different premium payment periods and maturity periods. Jeevan Tarun has four different sub-options with in it and has a 5 year reduced premium payment term. In New Children Money Back policy, premium needs to be paid till the maturity period. Purchasing child policies at an earlier stage would help in accumulating a larger chunk of money with minimal spend from your budget every month.

                Child insurance has a value added, unique feature called the Premium waiver Benefit rider. This rider would be optional and can be opted by paying some additional premium in some of the products and it would be available by default in some of the policies. This rider would waive off the future premiums to be paid for the policy, in case the proposer (parent) expires before the policy gets matured. This would not be applicable to the other parent if the other parent is not the proposer.

                LIC’s Jeevan Tarun and New Children money back policy will provide financial security to children in case of parent’s death. The financial benefits will be provided when the children complete their 18th age. These benefits will be provided at regular intervals till they complete 25 years, so that their higher education and marriage needs are fulfilled. Considering the merits of child policies, these have an edge over the bank deposits, as these child insurance products provide almost equal returns compared to other investments and also provide secured career to the child even if the parent expires.

Why should I get insured ?

The question that arises, when anyone hears the word “INSURANCE” or “POLICY” is “Why should I take insurance?”. This article is an introduction to series of blogs which will educate an insurance naive. The next articles will focus up on suitable plans for appropriate age groups.

Insurance is unlike, any other financial instrument that provides short term returns. Many people compare insurance as their investment option. The comparison finally leads to loss of insurance and wining of Mutual funds in this unequal chase.  This comparison is like a running race between fish and a fox, which is completely irrelevant.

Insurance is a financial instrument that safeguards the financial interests of the family in the absence of the sole bread winner. People consider insurance as unnecessary money sucker as they are unaware of the benefits or they are mis-educated about the products. This stereo typing happened due to term plans, which won’t return any benefits if policyholder survives.

Scenario in insurance market has changed with the entry of endowment plans, which will provide maturity benefits if the policyholder survives. These policies paved path for many hybrid policies, which were now being targeted based on the age groups and their requirement.

Insurance which was born with an aim of providing financial security is now equipped with an investment feature with new age structured policies. As they were basically targeted for insurance the returns provided on survival will be little less compared to investment options like MF’s, stocks and Bank FD’s. This is negated by the life cover that no other financial instrument is providing.

Considering insurance as an investment option is a right move for low risk profile individuals. Tax benefits provided under 80 ( C ) and 10(D) are unique to insurance, which will provide an edge over low risk financial products like Bank recurring deposits.

For people who are interested in taking risk were also accommodated in insurance segment with the help of ULIP’s (Unit Linked Investment Plans). These plans will allocated 1/8th of premium to insurance and rest in stock markets. Variety of funds were available for selection and can be chosen by policyholder himself. In case policyholder faces confusion, fund managers will guide based on their risk profile. Risk profile is being determined by giving questionnaire to customer. Funds are allocated based on customers preference and can be swapped if needed. This instrument gives an option to invest in insurance and stocks   at the same time.

Insurance has became a wholesome financial instrument, which can cater to the requirement of all segments of individuals. Besides reducing the risk of financial liability in case of risk, insurance also provides a chance to raise funds for future needs. These options make insurance a mandatory item in every individual’s portfolio.

LIC Bima Diamond, the best LIC policy ever

LIC has been reinventing itself and offering a variety of products to cater multiple sections of customers. In their effort to boast the portfolio, LIC has already introduced three policies in this calendar year 2016. 

Bima Diamond was the fourth plan launched this year on 01st September. This is named as Diamond on the occasion of LIC’s Diamond jubilee .The product is available for sale only till August 31st 2017, only in its Diamond jubilee year. LIC created this product to make its Diamond Jubilee year a revamp for their success story and the response was huge as expected.

What so special?
LIC creates policies based on target segments like Jeevan Tarun for children, Jeevan Akshay for pension seekers and Money back plan for immediate payment seekers. But, for the first time in LIC history, they have introduced a plan which can cater all section of customers.

A Plan which gives extended life cover, limited payment period, money back and extended lapse period.

Extended life cover:
No other policy except Jeevan Anand has extended life cover in LIC. Jeevan Anand’s only USP is it’s extended life cover and has de-merits with low return as premium payment cover 125% of sum assured ,while other plans will have 85-100% based on policyholders age.

Bima Diamond gives 50% Extra life cover on policy term. It provides 36 years life cover for 24 year policy term (24 years* 1.5 times= 36 years). Similarly 20 years policy will have 30 years life cover and 16 year policy will have 24 years life cover.

Limited payment period:
Most of the people want to invest for few years and get the benefits later, Bima Diamond is perfect fit for people like them. In this plan payment term is only 60% of the policy term.


Policy Term (Years)

Premium payment term (Years)

Life Cover (Years)














Money Backs:

This policy provides money back for every 4 years till policy term ends. Given below the tabular representation of money backs for different policy terms with money back.


Policy term (Years)

Money Back years

% of Sum Assured to be paid







4th,8th,12th ,16th




4th,8th,12th ,16th,20th



Extended Lapse period:

All the LIC policies have a default lapse period of 6 months. Let us understand with an example. Consider Ram’s payment is due for 30th October 2016.If Ram didn’t pay his premium in the next 6 months ie., before April 30th his policy will get lapsed and his life cover ceases. If he wants to revive the policy he need to provide fresh set of documents and undergo whole process again to continue the policy.

But in Bima Diamond lapse period is for 2 years. So, taking the above example, Ram can get life cover till 30th October 2018, even when his due date is 30th October 2016.

All these features make Bima diamond one of the best policies ever launched by LIC.

When is the right time to take LIC New Jeevan Anand and LIC Term Insurance?

LIC New Jeevan Anand is one of the utmost sold endowment plans of LIC, which offers Risk Cover even after the maturity up to 100 years of age. But, is it really nice because your insurance agent tried to sell it for you, or your co-worker suggested you to go for it, or just because you want to take an insurance policy? Whom is this policy actually for? When is the right time to purchase it?

Insurance is for everyone who earns. But, it is not something which is to be purchased thoughtlessly without any preceding research. People always get mixed up with which insurance they must  go for when they compare between Term Insurance & other insurance products. It is at all times suggested to go for Term Insurance as it is the “real form” of insurance.

People buy Money Back plans and other savings plans to multiply their money with the time. But, in case the bread winner of the family expires, there would be a huge financial burden on the family. So a term insurance is the only insurance which is intended to give that vital “emergency fund” to that family.

In case you already hold a term insurance plan, and planning to take another insurance plan, then you can go for Money Back plans.

In majority of the cases, policy holders do have those policies which are intended for investment purposes like LIC New Money Back Policy, LIC New Jeevan Anand Policy, etc. If you are one of those who already hold policies taken for savings and investment purposes, now is the time for you take a Term Insurance too. How much cover should I take when planning to take a term insurance? The estimated life cover can be calculated by multiplying your annual salary with 15 times.

After having such a “well planned” term insurance, you can take LIC Jeevan Anand plan now. The main advantage of taking LIC New Jeevan Anand policy is that it is a with-profits plan and it provides life insurance cover till you become 100 years old. When LIC makes profits, it announces bonuses for certain policies and LIC Jeevan Anand policy is one of those policies on which LIC declares the bonuses. LIC Jeevan Anand is a good returns policy.

Do I really need a Term Insurance

From long since, Indians see term insurance plan as a waste of money, as they dont receive any returns back from the term insurance plan if they survive till the end of the policy term. Ideally, the insured person  never receives back the returns in his hands in any case. If at all the coverage of the person expires during the policy term, its the nominee of the insured person who is going to get back the returns. The joint family system in the Indian culture never brought any requirement for insurance with Indians. But now, India and Indians are not the same as it was a few decades ago. The family systems got disintegrated and the savings with Indians got considerably reduced with increase in Loans, debt and credit cards. So, its time now for us to think about insurance so that our family is not being left with burden of loans and debts in case any unfortunate incident.

What is Term Insurance

Term insurance is the purest form of insurance, in which the insured person will not get any maturity benefits if he/she survives the policy term. Consider if a person takes a term insurance plan for a period of 20 years. He has to pay the premium for the 20 years based on the premium payment mode chosen. If the person survives till the end of the 20 years, he would not get any money back. Else if the person expires before the completion of that 20 years, then the insurer would provide the sum insured to the nominee and the policy would be closed.
