Ease Your Tax Burden - Invest Now


An small investor (and tax payer) is one who manages his finances in such a way that the TDS is just equal to the tax he is supposed to pay for a particular year. You need to balance your needs based on need for liquidity in hand, investment returns and tax savings.

Every individual get more tensed in the month of February /March every year as in this month when they feels like they are being subject to extortion in form of Tax Deduction at Source or Advance Tax. And advised if not want to pay tax then go to invest in tax saving investments.
There could be moments when you feel that you have paid too much of taxes or too much of tax has been deducted from your salary. So to avoid such situation one should start planning their taxes from the beginning of the year itself so that you don’t end your year by paying more taxes.
When the employer deducts tax at source, more particularly, during last two months, as he would like to avoid defaults on his part, to save on interest and penalties, he shall consider all your investments which give you tax deductions or savings. While deducting tax at source, he shall consider investments such as in
Insurance premium,
Provident fund contributions,
National saving certificates,
Investment in pension plans,
ULIPs, Mediclaim etc.
Not only this, he shall also consider certain amounts spent by you on specified items and on your health such as 
Tuition fee of children (80C), 
Repayment of principal amount of home loan (80C),
Medical expenses (80D, 80DD), 
Expenses on specified illnesses (80DDB) (upto Rs. 40,000 and Rs. 60,000 for senior citizens (Rs 1,00,000 wef A.y 2019-20) and for super senior citizen Rs 80,000 from A.y 2016-17 to 2018-19 ( Rs 1,00,000 from A.y 2019-20)
Any amount of interest paid on educational loan (80E) etc.
Donations made to specified eligible funds etc are also eligible for allowance (100% or 50% depending upon type of donation.
Employer is also supposed to consider your house rent receipts but may ask for landlord’s PAN number also.
You can plan you taxes including TDS by integrating your tax planning and investment planning. The investments you make should also have a tax saving objective. If choosing between two options with similar returns and safety features, tax saving would play an important role. In such situations, investments like housing, provident funds, insurance, equity linked saving options etc. can give you some relax feeling.

However, if tax has been deducted in absence of investment or forget to inform the Deductor in time (like bank etc), and your tax liability does not arise as per your income details or tax deduction becomes more than actual tax liability, you should not worry much as it is now mandatory for tax payers to quote then bank account number and details in the return itself which makes refunds faster, safer and hassle free.

Term Insurance Plan - Pure Life Insurance

What is Pure Life Insurance Plan? Best answer is Term Insurance Plan. What is the right time to get Term Insurance Plan? The short answer would be, “as early as possible.” But that doesn’t mean a child should also buy a term plan. There are various term & conditions that define the right time for anyone to buy a term insurance life cover. First of all, it is important that you understand ‘what is term plan after all? And what makes it important enough for such consideration?’
What is Term Plan?
Term plan or term insurance plan is a pure life insurance cover. The name term insurance (or term plan) refers to an insurance contract where an insurer agrees to compensate your nominee(s) for a specific premium cost.
Why Term Plan?
The purpose of insurance is to minimize the financial stress on the family or insured in case a specific loss occurs. For example, in case of life insurance, the insurer pays the sum assured to the family of the insured, in the event of the untimely demise of the insured. Thus, the family is saved from the financial problem after the death of that insured person.
The term insurance cover sustains the family’s financial stability in the worst circumstances.

How Will Term Cover Work?
Nowadays, insurers offer multiple pay-out options to make dependents life easier after the claim. Following are the most prominently offered pay-out options:
·         Lump-sum
·         Regular Income
·         Growing Regular Income
·         Lump-sum with regular income (fixed or growing)
The fourth option is quite useful if you think from your dependents’ perspective who may not want to manage a large investment. The lump-sum amount is useful in meeting the immediate financial needs, liabilities, etc. and regular income for future.
What is the Ideal Age to Buy Term Plan?
Most term plans consider 18 years of age as the minimum eligible age for availing a term cover. However, the ideal age for a term cover is defined by the income earning potential of the individual. For example, a 40 years old person who is not employed and financially dependent on another may not be eligible for a term cover, though at 20-year-old person earning Rs. 300,000 p.a. would be eligible.
Thus, whether your age is ideal for a term cover or not will depend on:
·         If you are above 18 years of age
·         Your annual income
Benefits of Buying Term Cover Early
The premium on term insurance cover is quite affordable, especially for younger buyers, since age is one of the major factors in premium estimates. Also, since the premiums will remain the same, early buyers may enjoy a very low term premium later in life.
How Much Life Cover You Need?
Since the purpose of term insurance is to meet your dependents financial needs, it is better that you choose a sum assured that is large enough for that. Usually, you can avail approximately 20 to 25 times of your annual income as maximum sum assured.
Example: Suppose Pradip had the annual income of Rs. 500,000 p.a. at the age of 30, thus maximum sum assured he could choose was about Rs. 25 to 30 Lakh. He can, however, increase the sum assured as his income increases or based on certain life events.
Term Insurance and Life Events
The life insurance need is not static throughout your life. It changes with your income, lifestyle, the number of dependents and other factors. After retirement, when you start earning out of your own savings from your working years, and your liabilities are over, your life insurance need could be zero.
Following life stages should make you revisit your term life cover:
·         Marriage
·         Addition of a life (Child birth)
·         Lifestyle changes/upgrades
·         Income increase/Job changes
Whatever your age at this moment, if you have not considered a term insurance so far, perhaps it is the right time to start.

LIC Maturity Claim Process

Mostly person before taking life insurance they think that how to claim maturity benefits from life insurance policies? Or What are the maturity claim procedure? How in my absence my dependents or spouse or nominee can take maturity claim?

Every insured person is entitled to claim the maturity benefits only when the policy is in force and all premiums have been duly paid. In life insurance policy with maturity benefits, the insured person will be entitled to claim maturity benefits if they have fulfill the term of the policy. A maturity claim is one of the simplest claim procedures with minimal paperwork require.



Normally the insurance company sends a Policy Discharge form about ninety days (3 month) before the maturity date of the insurance policy along with maturity intimation at insured persons address mentioned in policy. All instructions regarding the documents & procedures are advised their.

First of all, insured person should visit nearest LIC branch and understand the procedures.  Following list of documents require in Maturity claim process:

* Original Policy Bond
* Copy of Identity Proof
* Copy of Address Proof
* Bank Mandate Form with bank details
* A Cancelled Cheque leaf

Arrange all documents require to take maturity claim. The Policy Discharge Form (LIC Maturity Form No.3825) must be duly filed by the policyholder. The Maturity form needs to be signed by Policy holder along with two witness. 
The duly completed form with required documents must reach the insurance company at least one week before the maturity date of the policy for a seamless maturity claim settlement.

The maturity amount will be credited directly to the bank accounts of the policy holder after the policy maturity date.

How to Avoid Insurance Claim Rejection ?

Life insurance is not just a tax saving tool, it is a serious financial product which if used correctly can be a bless for your family and dependents. We people take life insurance to safe our future from any mishappen.      
How-to-Avoid-Insurance-Claim-Rejection ?
But it will be only if it get paid to our nominee on time without hassle. There are so many clauses, conditions and exceptions in insurance policies. Failure to meet any of these conditions would result in no insurance benefit being pay out. Most often, insurers rely on legal loopholes and clauses in their policy documents to avoid making payments of sums assured, but surprisingly a large number of times, the fault and blame belongs to the customers themselves.
Here are some points to ensure yourself as a customer that you always get paid.
1. Don't Conceal Information:- While taking a life insurance policy any information pertaining to your health/habits which can put an impact should disclose. Any pre-existing disease or condition or smoking/drinking habits or anything that can be linked as being as cause to your hospitalization or death will be investigated and if you have not disclosed to the company about it then sum assured & other benefits will not be given to you or your dependents/nominee. Remember your premiums are decided on this information. If there is nothing that can be held against you then the insurer will have to honor the insurance claim.
2. Accept Medical Examination: After certain age, life insurer ask for sponsored medical examination and test to get better understanding of your medical condition. These test may also help you detect diseases early, and treat them accordingly. These test will decide acceptance/rejection of policy or clear your doubts about any future rejection of claims due to concealing health information. 
3. Pay Insurance Premium On-Time: Remember Insurance company only settle claims on Active Insurance Policies. But there are number of people who do not understand that delaying premium payments result in lapsed policies. Once your policy get lapse, you are no longer covered and all your premiums paid that far will be rendered useless. Your nominee may lost their legal validity to get sum assured on death from the company. In some cases delaying your insurance premium payments lead to Late Payment Surcharge for re-reinstatement of the policy.
4. Nominee Information: Nominee is the person who will receive any and all benefits that come out of your insurance policy in your absence. Nominee should be generally that person whose livelihoods are directly depends on you being alive and well. So nominate some one is more important. If you are single than nominate your parents, if married then spouse or children. Whatever your present relationship status is, always keep nominee name update so that some benefits will to some dependents of yours. If there is no nominee then death benefits may be freeze/rejected.
5. Scrutinize the Policy Documents: Merely telling the insurance agent everything about your medical history will not qualify him to understand and explain all on the form about your medical history. Insurers decide your premium payment amount, overall coverage, and even some exclusions based on whats' filled out in your forms. No one knows better that you, and you need to make sure the insurance provider knows too. You need to take the time out of your busy schedule and check the form that all details are filled in order and truthfully. Check Clauses such as the exception list that indemnifies the insurer from any kind of liability towards you exist all over your policy documents. 

Keep  yourself informed about all developments with your insurer. Keep yourself informed about the details in your policy documents. Stay well informed about the conditions under which you will be eligible for a claim.

Life After Life With Life Insurance

Life-After-Life-With-Life-Insurance
One of my client asked me "why every alternate day an LIC Agent came to me and asked to buy an insurance policy? How I can buy if not able save to afford premium amount? I ask him just to imagine "you are the head of the family and only earning member. You have a good job, own flat, kids taking education in good school. But suppose unfortunately you are no more or no-more earning as now, then............. " that person silence for some time. Again I asked can you again imagine that your family can live without you as comfortable as now. They need money to fulfill their needs even in your absence... so we people come and tell you to do some for future cash requirement.
Always remember loss of an income always creates a dent in the financial plans of any family, and if that income is the only income, the damages can be very severe.
Nothing can be done to compensate for the emotional loss of the family. But we do something to take care of them financially when we are not there.
Therefore we can secure our family's financial future by buying a life insurance policy. Besides do not overlook benefits of a life insurance during your lifetime, especially if you are young. Here  I am listing some reasons for buying Life Insurance Policy.
1. Life After Life : As I illustrated above there are life after your life who need money to survive and fulfill their requirements. They are your dependent spouse, your child, your mother-father whom you love so much.
2. Supplements for your Retirement Goals: With a life insurance plan, you can ensure you have a regular stream of income every month till you survive. So, invest some money in  Pension Fund scheme.
3. Tax Saving Purpose: The premium you pay on an insurance policy is eligible for maximum tax benefit upto Rs.1.50 Lakh under section 80C. And give you a tax free return at the time of Maturity or death under section 10(D) of IT Act, 1961. So, you can save tax with insurance policies irrespective of what plan you buy. 
4. Peace of Mind: We all knows death is unavoidable. Atleast you can do this for your family to secure their financial future. Even if it is a small policy, you know that you have done all you can.
5. Forced Saving Tools: If you are not able to invest thou this investment forcefully ask you to save some money for future. If you choose a traditional or ULIP policy, you pay a premium each month, means each month savings.
6. Delay Cost More: Life insurance policy run on uncertainties. Now you are healthy so you can buy a life insurance but if you are ill your policy may be rejected. Buying life insurance early is cheaper than buying later. 
7. Helpful in Debt-dealing: If you have any home loan or car loan, you must not want your family to deal with financial liabilities during a crisis. Any outstanding debt either home loan, auto loan, personal loan or credit card outstanding will be taken care of if you have right (amount) insurance policies.
8. Fulfill Long-Term Goal: Life insurance a tool for long-term investment. It may help you to achieve your future goals such as buying home, fund for higher education of your child.

Using life insurance as an investment tool might make sense for some people in some situations - usually high net-worth individuals looking for a way to minimize income taxes. For the average person, it may fulfill their future financial needs.

Do You Know Why LIC is Safe !!!

Call-LIC-Agent-Pradip-9958781151In 1956, when the life insurance industry was nationalized, Parliament directed the LIC to take the message of life insurance to every part of the country. It also directed the Government to guarantee the sums assured (including any bonuses declared) under all policies issued by, as well as those taken over by, the corporation (Sec.37 of the LIC Act).

In the Symbol of LIC Logo, there are two words.."Yogakshemam Vahamyaham" writtern in Sanskrit. This was said by Lord Shri Krishna to Arjun in Kurukshetra. It means" Your Security is My Responsibility."


Here is the proof that investment in LIC is fully secure by Central Government of India. As per Section 37 of LIC Act, "The Sum Assured by all Policies issued by the Corporation including any bonuses declared in respect thereof and, subject to he provisions contained in Section 14 the amount assured by all policies issued by an insurer the liabilities under which have vested in the Corporation under this Act, and all bonuses declared in respect thereof, whether before or after the appointed, day shall be guaranteed as to payment in cash by the Central Government" 

This is the proof why LIC is the king in insurance market. Why people of India trust more on it  than any other insurance company. You can compare here Monthly Business Report of IRDA. 


This is Trust by the People, for the People because in every PUBLIC there is LIC. No other company can guarantee you about your invested money. Can any ??


Can any company guarantee you if they become failure in insurance business that company or any other agency/governement on behalf of that company will return your all investment along with accrued bonuses.


In service of last 61 years LIC has given security to your love one in your absence about taking care by returning all investment along with accrued bonuses and other loyalty addition (if offered) or by insurance amount to the right nominee/heir. 


Over the last 60 years, the corporation has not only carried out this directive in both letter and spirit but also paid to the Government thousands of crores in the form of tax and dividend.

Effect of GST on Insurance Premium

With  a hike in GST rates to 18% from the current 15%, the insurance sector are poised to get more expensive after July 1, 2017. The immediate effect will be the increase in premiums especially for families that own Life Insurance, Health Insurance and Car Insurance.

The existing and new insurance buyers would have to bear the updated prices. The Policy holders stand a chance to be benefited if the insurance providers get a green signal on the input tax credit benefit. Unfortunately, as of yet, it is still unclear since he Center/State GST  structure is very complex. It might create confusions and conformity for the insurance buyers and increase the administrative expenses for the insurance providers. If the insurance buyers remain confused about the GST updates, then irrespective of the increase or decrease in the prices the financial strength will adversely affected. The general insurance sector will be equally impacted. The overall outgo for health, car, and various non-life plans would be increased by 3 percent.

The Insurance policies premium represents two components - Savings and Risk Coverage. The service tax is levied specified only on the premium component. 

What GST (Goods And Service Tax) Rules says, the value of service on which the GST is levied regarding the life insurance sector shall be accordingly;
(i) The gross premium would be reduced by the amount allocated for or savings or investment on policyholders behalf.
(ii) When it comes to the single premium annual policies, ten percent of the single premium would be charged from the policy holder.
(iii) In other cases, 25 percent of the premium for the first year and 12.5% of the premium in the upcoming years will be charged.
(iv) In case the total premium paid by the policy holder is towards the life insurance's risk cover, oly the 18% GST would be levied on the total premium.

There are three types of life insurance;
* Term Insurance Plans - Basic life insurance policy
** ULIP Plans - Insurance and investment under a single integrated plan
*** Endowments Plans (including money back plan) - Life insurance policies that pay a lump sum on maturity/death or a fixed sum every month (like pension)
