Bima Bachat Examples:
Let me give you an example to understand this policy. Mr. Dilip aged 30 years takes a Bima Bachat Policy for 15 years term for Rs 2 lakhs SA. He pays a single premium of Rs. 1,48,322. He receives Survival Benefit of rs 30,000 each at the end of 3rd, 6th, 9th & 12th year respectively. On Maturity, he will receive Rs 1,48,322 being the single Premium paid by Dilip. Thus total amount received by him will be Rs 2,68,322 (Rs 1,20,000 as Survival Benefits + 1,48,322 as single Premium paid) + LA if any. If Mr. Dilip dies during the 13th policy year, his nominee will get Rs 2 lakh as SA as a death benefit (Survival benefit of Rs 30000 each received during 3rd, 6th, 9th & 12th year will not be deducted from the SA). hence the total amount received would be Rs. 3,20,000.
Tax benefit (Updated)
Any life insurance policy except pension plan issued after April 1, 2012, should have risk cover of at least 10 times the annual premium to be eligible for the tax benefit under section 80C and section 10(10D) of income tax act 1961. For example: if your annual premium is Rs.10,000/- then your basic sum assured should be min. Rs.1 lac to be eligible for tax benefit.
Cooling off period:
If you are not satisfied with the “Terms and Conditions” of the policy, you may return the policy to Life Insurance Corporation Of India within 15 days.

i stumbled upon this site while searching for tax benefit under S 80 C for bima bachat policy. already saw my question answered. thank you and keep up the good work.
I am glad I could be of Help! 🙂
Thanks Tabrej for instant rply
From FY 2003-2004 premiums paid in excess of 20% of the Sum Assured will not be eligible for Tax free returns under section 10(10D) except in the case of death.
Also what does this line mean…can you kindly clarify
That means if you invest one lac and your SA is also 1 lakh then you will get 20% tax benefit.
If you invest one lac and SA is 5 lacs then you will get 100% tax benefit.
Wanted to ask that whether I can invest Rs 1 lakh in Bima Bachat and claim full Rs 1 lakh deduction u/s 80 C
My agent told me that 80/c benefit not available in this policy ????
Also this website is very informative…keep it up….
Looking for an early reply
Tax benefit is available on all policies u/s 80C but your yearly premium should not be more than 20% of sum assured.
For premium deposit there is any option to pay online premium of my client to pay his/her premium in my account
They can register an account on LIC’s website and pay premium using Credit card or net banking.
Thank you policy for the mailing however this is not being beneficial to the policy holder the amount that is paid is nothing but Bankrate however the policy holder is to wait for the period of 3 years to get the payment.
