LIC Jeevan Pragati Policy (Table no. 838) – Plan Details and Review


LIC has launched “Jeevan Pragati Policy” (Table Plan No. 838) in Feb 2016.   Unique Identification number of Jeevan Pragati Plan is 512N306V01. This policy is

  • with profit
  • endowment (savings-cum-protection) policy
  • non-linked (not linked to stock market)

This is the third policy launched by LIC in 2016 after LIC Jeevan Labh and Jeevan Shikhar

In this policy, the risk cover keeps on increasing every 5 year. This is an important feature as it provides adequate risk cover against inflation as the years passes.  You can also add accidental benefit rider.

Key Features

  • Increasing Life Cover every 5 years (25% risk cover increased every 5 years)
  • Option to add accidental rider
  • Premium paid is eligible for deduction under 80(C)
  • Maturity amount will be tax free under 10(10D)

Optional Rider

LIC’s Accidental Death and Disability Rider UIN (512B209V01) is available with this plan whereby an additional amount equal to the Accidental Benefit Sum Assured is payable on death due to accident, provided the rider is in full force at the time of the accident.

The only difference with Jeevan Pragati plan is that the risk cover increases every 5 years. 

I am not big fan of traditional LIC plans as I personally prefer to keep savings and insurance separate. I normally prefer to take Life Term insurance (for life insurance) and Mutual funds (for investment).
