The LIC of India’s Dhan Varsha Policy combines the benefits of a life cover and long-term savings. It can be bought by paying a single lump sum premium amount which will protect policyholders and their families in case of any eventuality. Further, the guaranteed additions made by LIC every year can significantly increase the final payouts at death or maturity.
The plan is a single premium plan which means the plan can be bought through a lump sum amount only.
The policyholder can choose to remain covered under a policy term or 10 years or 15 years.
The policy offers guaranteed additions ranging from Rs. 25 to Rs. 75 per thousand of the Basic Sum Assured at the end of each policy year.
After completeing 3 months of the policy, one can avail of the loan facility to finance any urgent capital needs.
Policyholders can choose to receive the maturity or death benefit in instalments over 5 years through the Settlement option.
Buyers can enjoy a 2% rebate on the premium if the policy is bought online.
Death Benefits: In case the life assured dies within the policy term, the nominee will receive the Sum assured on Death along with guaranteed additions. This Sum Assured on Death depends on the option chosen by the policyholder:
Option 1: 1.25 times the premium amount charged against the basic sum assured
Option 2: 10 times the premium amount charged against the basic sum assured
Maturity Benefits: The policyholder shall receive the Basic Sum Assured along with the accumulated guaranteed additions as maturity benefit on outliving the policy term.
Guaranteed Additions: Depending on the option and the policy term chosen, a certain amount will accumulate at the end of each policy year. The total sum will be added to the maturity or death benefit. The guaranteed amount per Rs. 1000 of the Basic Sum Assured will be as follows:
|Basic Sum Assured||Policy term of 10 years||Policy term of 15 years|
|Option 1||Option 2||Option 1||Option 2|
|Rs. 1,25,000 to Rs. 2,45,000||Rs. 60||Rs. 25||Rs. 65||Rs. 30|
|Rs. 2,50,000 to Rs. 6,95,000||Rs. 65||Rs. 30||Rs. 70||Rs. 35|
|Rs. 7,00,000 and above||Rs. 70||Rs. 35||Rs. 75||Rs. 40|
Here’s how one can calculate the total guaranteed additions for their policy. Let’s take the following example for Option 2 of LIC Dhan Varsha:
Sum Assured - Rs 5 Lakhs
Policy Term - 15 years
Rate of Guaranteed Addition - Rs 35 per Rs 1000 Basic Sum Assured (as per the table above)
Therefore, total Guaranteed Addition at the end of 15 years will be Rs (35 x 5,00,000/1,000) x 15 = Rs 2,62,500.
Tax Benefits: The policyholder will receive tax benefits under Section 80C and Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act.
Let’s understand the plan with the help of an example:
Age at the time of policy purchase = 35 years
Basic Sum Assured = Rs 10 Lakhs
Policy Term = 15 years
Policy Option = Option 2
Single premium payable (excluding taxes) = Rs 8,74,950
Guaranteed Additions = Rs 40 per Rs 1000 Basic Sum Assured
Here’s a look at different scenarios:
The nominee will receive a total of the following amounts:
Sum Assured on Death for Option 2: Single Premium paid x 10 = Rs 87,49,500
Guaranteed Additions for 10 years: Rs (40 x 10,00,000/1,000) x 10 = Rs 4,00,000
This brings the final death benefit to Rs 91,49,500.
The nominee will receive the sum assured on death (Rs 87,49,500) plus Guaranteed Additions for 15 years (Rs 6,00,000), which brings the total to Rs 93,49,500.
He/she will receive a total of the following amounts:
Basic Sum Assured: Rs 10,00,000
Guaranteed Benefits for 15 years: Rs (40 x 10,00,000/1,000) x 15 = Rs 6,00,000
This brings the final maturity benefit to Rs 16,00,000.
