      This is regular premium policy. You need to pay premium for 9 years. You can pay monthly, half yearly or yearly.

      Return depends on your sum assured.

      If you go for 1lakh sum assured for 9 yrs term
      you will get money back on every 3 yrs:
      3rd year 15k
      6th year 25k
      and finally on 9th year 60k +G.A + L.A
