Few questions on Aadhaar Stambh Plan
What about Insurance and risk cover?
If you’re thinking about purchasing this LIC Stambh plan you should think twice because the maximum sum assured will be rupees 3,00,000 and in our opinion, the sum assured is not that something we appreciate really.
Even though after 20 years the policy term will not be enough. Therefore the premium paid for this policy is high enough in comparison to the typical LIC policy. In our opinion, you can get around rupees 50 lakh in this value which you are going to pay for LIC plan.
If you are one of those people seeking decent life cover you can go for Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana instead at an annual premium of rupees 330 at annual rate and with cover claim of 2 lakh which is a way much cheaper than LIC Aadhaar Stambh Plan policy.
What about the Investment?
All these years you are working and saving money but with an investment point of view, we straight away close here that do not go for this plan. Eventually, the plan will end up giving only 5 to 6% returns and loyalty addition after 5 years. Hence, there is no bonus payable on this plan.
The only benefit one can get from this plan is an auto cover option.
