    I presume this applies to partial withdrawals also. Please correct me if it is not so.

    Thanks, Manish for that detailed answer. I never thought that the tax benefits would also be reversed.

    thanks for asking wonderful questions ..

    LIC policies or any other companies Endowment and moneyback , as well as ULIPs have common rule on this.

    If you get your money after 5 yrs : NO TAX

    If you get your money before 5 yrs : then that money gets added to your income and taxed as per your slab , also the tax beneits you have got in earliar years are REVERSED
