    It depends on the objectives on the buyer. If you are starting your career, you buy term plan as per the need of that day. Later on your life insurance need change and you got married and bought home, so again you go and buy another life insurance. You can buy from the same insurer or from another one. (based on various factors - like coverage, price, term, availability in your city etc.).

    So there are no hard and fast rule for this.

    5 different policies from different insurers would be costly than one single policy from one insurer.
    Everyone has a scheme of getting rich.. Which never works.

    More plans more costly for you -
    Bharti Axa eProtect Rs. 4,607 per annum for SI 50 lakh
    IndiaFirst Anytime Plan Rs. 1,708 for SI 10 Lakh

    @ for 30 year old Non Smoker, 20 year term.
    You will pick up maximum wrong numbers when on roaming.

    Why you need 5 insurance plans, that would be too expensive.
    When ever you will buy new policy than you will have to give details of your old policy. Its not advisable. I think no company gives term insurance for 10 lakhs only.
