I pay yearly premium of 30,864 and the policy will be matured on 2033.Plus I have 22 LIC “Endowment assurance with profit with DAB” Policy which will mature from 2033 up-to 2054 Actually when i took the policy i didn’t know anything about it.

          Dear Ashal,
          Sorry its 15lac, monthly 1.25lac. Sorry 4 the mistake.


          1. Dear Ahmed, you are paying too much prem. In my opinion, whenever you visit next time in India, please purchase LIC’s Term cover Amulya Jeevan for 50L Rs. The prem. for 28Y policy, i.e. till your age 60, is 17900 Rs. only. It means you ‘ll have around 1.29L Rs. in your hand for investment purpose. As you are an NRI, the NRE FD ‘ll yield you a far better return than these LIC policies can provide combined.



  3. 1.47 lakh premium for Insurance? Friend, honestly i re-read your premium figures.

    Here is what i would have done. Visit the LIC office, ask how much would you get back if you surrender the policies. Before surrendering these polices go for pure term plan.

    Invest 1.25 Lakh per year i good mutual funds for next 10 years via SIP, there is good amount of chances you would make decent money.

    The surrendered money, can be invested as per your risk apetite.
