Disclaimer:
i) This illustration is applicable to a standard (from medical, life style and
occupation point of view) life wherein any riders are not opted.
ii) Some benefits are guaranteed and some benefits which are Non
Guaranteed benefits with returns based on the future performance are
shown for two different rates of assumed future investment returns.
iii) The Non Guaranteed benefits in above illustration are calculated so
that they are consistent with the Projected Investment Rate of Return
assumption of 4% p.a. (Scenario 1) and 8% p.a. (Scenario 2). In
other words, in preparing this benefit illustration, it is assumed that
the Projected Investment Rate of Return that LICI will be able to
earn throughout the term of the policy will be 4% p.a. or 8% p.a.,
as the case may be. The Projected Investment Rate of Return is not
guaranteed and they are not the upper or lower limits of what you might
get back, as the value of your policy is dependent on a number of factors
including actual future investment performance.
iv) The main objective of the illustration is that the client is able to
appreciate the features of the product and the flow of benefits in
different circumstances with some level of quantification.
SECTION 45 OF INSURANCE ACT, 1938:
The provision of Section 45of the Insurance Act 1938 shall be as amended
from time to time. The simplified version of this provision is as under:
Provisions regarding policy not being called into question in terms of
Section 45 of the Insurance Act, 1938are as follows:
1. No Policy of Life Insurance shall be called in question on any
ground whatsoever after expiry of 3 yrs from
a. the date of issuance of policy or
b. the date of commencement of risk or
c. the date of revival of policy or
d. the date of rider to the policy whichever is later.
2. On the ground of fraud, a policy of Life Insurance may be called in
question within 3 years from
a. the date of issuance of policy or
b. the date of commencement of risk or
c. the date of revival of policy or
d. the date of rider to the policy whichever is later.
For this, the insurer should communicate in writing to the insured
or legal representative or nominee or assignees of insured, as
applicable, mentioning the ground and materials on which such
decision is based.
3. Fraud means any of the following acts committed by insured or by
his agent, with the intent to deceive the insurer or to induce the
insurer to issue a life insurance policy:
a. The suggestion, as a fact of that which is not true and which
13
the insured does not believe to be true;
b. The active concealment of a fact by the insured having
knowledge or belief of the fact;
c. Any other act fitted to deceive; and
d. Any such act or omission as the law specifically declares to be
fraudulent.
4. Mere silence is not fraud unless, depending on circumstances of
the case, it is the duty of the insured or his agent keeping silence
to speak or silence is in itself equivalent to speak.
5. No Insurer shall repudiate a life insurance Policy on the ground
of Fraud, if the Insured / beneficiary can prove that the
misstatement was true to the best of his knowledge and there
was no deliberate intention to suppress the fact or that such
mis-statement of or suppression of material fact are within
the knowledge of the insurer. Onus of disproving is upon the
policyholder, if alive, or beneficiaries.
6. Life insurance Policy can be called in question within 3 years on
the ground that any statement of or suppression of a fact material
to expectancy of life of the insured was incorrectly made in the
proposal or other document basis which policy was issued or
revived or rider issued. For this, the insurer should communicate
in writing to the insured or legal representative or nominee
or assignees of insured, as applicable, mentioning the ground
and materials on which decision to repudiate the policy of life
insurance is based.
7. In case repudiation is on ground of mis-statement and not on
fraud, the premium collected on policy till the date of repudiation
shall be paid to the insured or legal representative or nominee or
assignees of insured, within a period of 90 days from the date of
repudiation.
8. Fact shall not be considered material unless it has a direct bearing
on the risk undertaken by the insurer. The onus is on insurer to
show that if the insurer had been aware of the said fact, no life
insurance policy would have been issued to the insured.
9. The insurer can call for proof of age at any time if he is entitled
to do so and no policy shall be deemed to be called in question
merely because the terms of the policy are adjusted on subsequent
proof of age of life insured. So, this Section will not be applicable
for questioning age or adjustment based on proof of age submitted
subsequently.

Insurance Act, 1938 and only a simplified version prepared for
general information. Policyholders are advised to refer to Section
45 of the Insurance Act, 1938, for complete and accurate details.]
