    Default BSLI Bachat Endowment Plan

    I accidentally fooled by Citibank & BSLI people for selling me this policy in 2010. Already 3 yrs have passed, now I don't understand what to do, as I find it quite unattractive to keep the policy going for so long of 20 yrs' term. I asked them for a short term plan say 5 yrs only but upon receiving the documents it was all opposite. I tried calling those two guys but their phones were not reachable or they didn't answer. In my busy schedule I couldn't file a formal complain. Paying Rs 24000 annually is big for me. Can I make it paid-up after 3 yrs & policy remain continue?

    Read policy documents first and call customer care of BSLI, if you are not happy with the policy.

    As per BSLI website -

    So you can surrender after paying three years premium and you will get only 30% of two years premium (first year premium will not be refunded). So -
    24,000 X 2 = 48,000
    Surrender Value after three years = 48000 x 30% = Rs. 14,000

    You can make this policy paid-up, only when the policy has acquired a surrender benefit (i.e. after three years).

    Thanks Master for this clarification. I was actually confused with this option since I read somewhere that BSLI Bachat Money Back can be made paid-up after 3 years, but I wasn't sure about this. Since I've completed 3 premiums then I feel making it paid-up now & surrender after 10 yrs would be better. But I read in policy papers that if you stop paying premiums, would cease all benefits! What do you say?

    Not much info about paid-up in the BSLI website online. If you have any info please post here, then only I can comment.
    In general in Paid-up they reduce the sum insured proportionately of the policy for rest of the policy term.

    Default Reply from BSLI

    Hi Master, I contacted BSLI for paid up benefits after 3 yrs. This is what they replied:
    "we wish to inform you that after the paying premium full 3 years if you unable to pay future premium you can continue you can continue the policy on paid up basis.

    On exercise this options:
    1) Guaranteed surrender benefit as on paid up date will be kept constant and paid to you if and when you decide to surrender the policy or on maturity date.
    2) Guaranteed death benefit will be reduced depending on surrender factor applicable when it becomes paid up.
    3) Accidental death benefit rider will cease.
    4) Bachat additions and loyalty addition will continue based on the sum of MBPs paid."

    Now my confusion is that on 1st point. Even if I surrender say after 10yrs then the surrender factor would remain 30% (as on paid up date). Whereas policy says after 10 yrs it is 100%. What's your opinion? I've again asked them to elaborate with illustration, what will I get. Waiting for next reply.

    Regards
    Mona
