    Hi Ramesh,

    Can you please elaborate more on “Your husband NEEDS a proper life insurance cover, which I do not think is being provided by all those plans.”

    What do you mean by proper life insurance?

    I am asking because I also have LIC policies like Jeevan Mitra, Jeevan Bima Gold.

    1. Proper Life Insurance – If you keep digging these 3 words , you will get the answer yourself .

      What is proper life insurance – A life insurance which can help my family provide all that I always wanted to give them and might be able to provide them if I am alive in my life. It should make sure that they have a house , they should reach all their fianncial goals like children education , marriage, car , a good life style – which would cost Rs 50,000 per month increasing by 8-10% each year.

      How much money can provide this ? – Rs 1-1.5 crore atleast in today’s value

      Now go back and ask – “If I die today , will my insurance policies give that much to my family ?” – Answer is NO for 99% people who have taken life insurance in India. It adds up only anything between 5 lacs to 20 lacs , Or to put it in a better way 2X of their annual income , a person earning 5 lacs in all probability does not have life insurance of more than 10 lacs , thats average !
