Market Plus 1 NAV:

The Net Asset Value (NAV) changes daily. You should check the number of units you have in your market plus 1 policy and convert that unit with the current NAV to get the total value of your Market Plus 1 fund. For example, if you have 600 units of MP1 and the current NAV is Rs.29.5367 then your total value would be 600×29.5367= 17,722. The value of your policy will be Rs.17,722/-. You can check the current NAV on LIC’s website.

Top-Up (Additional Premium)
The policyholder can pay an additional premium in multiples of Rs.1,000/- without any limit at any time during the term of the policy.

Revival:
An attractive feature of the plan is that provided the premiums have been paid for a minimum period of three years, all the riders under the policy will continue for a period of two years from the due date of the first unpaid premium by deduction of relevant charges from the policy fund. This period of two years is called the “Revival Period”. Further, if premiums have been paid for a minimum period of three years, revival can be effected merely by paying the arrears of premium, within the Revival Period.
