    A4.A policy that has lapsed may be revived within a period of 5 years from the date of the first unpaid premium and before the maturity date.  The revival of the policy will be effective as soon as all undue premiums along with interest are paid.  The revival of the rider benefits will be taken into account along with the revival of the base policy.

  • Q5. Is a loan facility available under LIC Micro Bachat Plan?

    A5.Once the policy has completed three full years, and all the premiums have been paid up, the policyholder is eligible to apply for a loan under the policy.  However, this is subject to change by the Corporation.

    For policies that are in force – up to 70%

    A6.
