LIC’s New Bima Bachat Plan is a saving cum protection plan. The plan gives regular money back income in every third year of policy term, that takes care of availability of liquidity to policyholder. It can be closely compared with Bank fix deposit scheme with added features of money back, life risk cover and income tax rebate. Premium is paid as lump sum ( one time only ) when one buys the policy. Even after money back, this plan also takes care of liquidity needs before maturity, through its loan facility. This is an endowment or traditional plan- which means it is not linked to stock market. The return on investment will be based on the profit of LIC and thereafter the declaration of loyalty addition rate for the particular product, if applicable.
