LIC Bima Jyoti is one of the best insurance plans from LIC. I bought this plan last year in January. I am paying a monthly premium of Rs. 7,000 for my policy of Rs. 10,00,000. After buying this policy I had a sense of satisfaction that even if something happens to me, my family’s financial stability would not be compromised.
