Dear Abhay, why did you purchase this policy in 2008 itself? What was the primary reason to purchase this policy?
Your monthly premium is only Rs. 2500.

Typically this will be about 8000 -10,000 each month. So the sum that goes towards the ULIP is quite small.
If I am not wrong 80% of premium is invested in equity. Equity has not performed well since 2008. Hence the poor return. All administrative and allocations charges would have decreased now. So it is like a equity oriented mutual fund with reasonably low expense ratio. Since the premium is likely to be quite small comp to how much you need to save, you could stay invested in the ULIP.
If you want you can switch (if possible) to Flex-Balanced option with 60% equity and 40% debt.
Just make sure you invest the necessary sum each month for your goal. By choosing good equity and debt mutual funds according to your risk appetite
