It has the ability to fulfill a father's dream in terms of her daughter's education and marriage.\r\n\r\nThough this policy is famous among the agents as LIC Kanyadan Policy, its original name LIC Jeevan Lakshya policy indicates that with this policy an investor can fulfill his dreams or the lakshya\u00a0of his life.

The Sum Assured of this policy is \u20b95 Lakh only. He will have to pay a premium of \u20b98173\/- plus GST@4.50% annually.\r\n\r\nMaturity year will be 2033. and his age will be 44 years\r\nWhat will be maturity proceeds if he survives the entire policy term?\r\nMaturity year will be 2033 and his age will be 44 years. If Mr. Vivekananda Dutta survives till maturity after 15 years, he will receive \u20b98,17,500 at maturity.\r\nWhat will be the maturity proceeds if he dies after 10 years of policy continuation?\r\nFrom 2029 to 2032 his family will receive \u20b950,000 every year i.e. 10% of Sum Assured. On maturity, in 2033 his family will receive \u20b95 Lakh as the Sum Assured and Revisionary bonus and Final Additional Bonus altogether. Thus total maturity proceeds will be \u20b98,67,500.\r\n\r\nYou may want to read the following:\r\n\r\n \tBest Liquid Funds-5 Best Liquid Funds for 2019\r\n \tBest ELSS Funds 2019-Top 3 Tax Saving Mutual Funds\r\n \tHow to calculate mutual fund returns in excel\r\n \tWhat is BSBD account? Basic Savings Bank Deposit account\r\n\r\nWhat is the exclusion of this policy?\r\nThis is a very crucial point to know that if an insured person commits suicide within 12 months from the date of the commencement of the policy, no risk coverage would be provided in that case.\r\nIs there any Free Look Period under LIC Kanyadan Policy?\r\nThis policy allows a period of 15 days from the date of receipt of the policy document to review the terms or conditions of this policy and where the policyholder disagrees to any of those terms and conditions, he has the option to return this policy.\r\nIs there any Grace Period under LIC Kanyadan Policy?\r\nUnder this policy, the insurer allows a grace period of time from the due date for the payment of premium, without any penalty\/ late fee, during which time the policy is considered to be\u00a0in force\u00a0with the risk cover without any interruption as per the terms of the policy.\r\n\r\nA grace period of one month but not less than 30 days shall be allowed for payment of yearly or half-yearly or quarterly premiums and 15 days for monthly premiums. If the premium is not paid before the expiry of the days of grace, the Policy lapses without any further questions.\r\nIs there any surrender value under LIC Kanyadan Policy?\r\nThe policy can be surrendered at any time during the policy term provided at least 3\u00a0full years\u2019 premiums have been paid. The Guaranteed Surrender Value shall be the sum of the following :\r\n\r\n (a). Percentage of total premiums paid (net of GST) excluding any extra premiums and premiums for the rider(s), if opted for. This percentage will depend on the policy term and policy year in which the policy is surrendered.\r\n\r\n(b).The surrender value of vested simple reversionary bonuses, if any, which is equal to vested bonuses multiplied by the surrender value factors applicable to vested bonuses. These surrender value factors, which are guaranteed, will depend on the policy term and the policy year in which the policy is surrendered.\r\n\r\nJust go through the below chart for getting Guaranteed surrender value against the premiums paid.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAlso, see the below chart for getting vested bonus calculation.\r\n\r\n\r\nFinal words on LIC Kanyadan Policy\r\nThis policy is purely an endowment plan that provides risk coverage along with savings options till policy payment term. However, it is always better to see insurance as purely an insurance product. Insurance never should be compared with the investment product. If an investor does not have trust in equity or equity-related products, this policy is suitable for him.\r\n\r\nThis policy is an ideal investment cum insurance product for low-risk appetite investors. But there are a plethora of pure plain vanilla term insurance products which meets one's insurance needs with low cost and high sum assured options.\r\n\r\n\u00a0Thus, finally, I can say that LIC Kanyadan Policy alias LIC Jeevan Lakshya plan is ideal insurance and savings product for the conservative investors only.
