What Are Child Plans?

Child plans are savings and insurance schemes that help meet the financial requirements of the child even in case of a parent's death/ disability/ loss of income. Through this scheme, lump-sum financial coverage is offered to meet the child's future requirements like higher education, marriage, college fees, etc.
