      Hi Prasad,
      I am getting large number of queries from existing policyholders regarding the plans taken by them. You cannot find authenticate information in the net about withdrawn plans. The intention is to help policyholders who have already taken the plan.

    I have a New Bima Gold policy for 20 years. Is the amount paid by LIC once in 4 years (10% of Sum Assured) taxable ?

      Survival benefit (10% of SA) is not taxable.
