Pension plans also known as annuity plans are similar to life insurance policies.  However, unlike a life insurance policy, which is a protection plan and is aimed to take care of your family following your death, a pension plan looks to ensure a financially sound future for yourself and your family with a steady stream of incomewhen you survive and live through your retirement years. 

The maximum limit of deduction under the sub-sections of Section 80C cannot be in excess of Rs 1.5 lakhs. Also, upon maturity, tax is charged on 2/3rd of the amount at a marginal rate while the remaining part of the total pension amount is tax free.
