  3. I took a policy for Rs.50,000, under this 12 year plan (table 196) i am investing Rs.4087.00 half yearly, which will become an amount of Rs.73,566.00 after 9 years of regular premium payment.

    Rs.73,566.00 – Rs.50,000.00= Rs.23,566.00

    Now my question is, if i get total money back after 12 years (i.e 100% of sum assured=Rs.50,000.00), what about the remaining amount of Rs.23,566.00 ??
    How could i become benefited at the time of maturity??

    waiting for a quick reply.
