RPLI Scheme – 10-year Rural PLI Scheme 

Rural Post Life Insurance, RPLI online schemes were introduced in March 1995, especially for the benefit of rural people. In 1993, this plan was started by the recommendation of the Malhotra committee which observed that only 22% of the insurable population in India has been insured and life insurance funds are accounted for only 10% of the gross household savings.

The government of India accepted the recommendations of the committee and allowed PLI to enhance its coverage to the rural areas to implement life insurance business. Post office Gram Priya Yojana (10-year Rural PLI Scheme) was introduced under the RPLI. The main objective of this plan is to provide life insurance coverage to the rural public and to benefit the weaker parts of rural areas. This scheme can also help in spreading insurance awareness among the rural population. Read on to know further about the 10-year RPLI Gram Priya scheme in detail:

This scheme is suitable for those individuals who need returns and benefits at periodic time periods. In case of an unforeseen demise during the policy tenure, the entire sum assured (SA) amount and accrued bonus till the death date will be paid to the legal heir or nominees.
