About 1 Crore Term Life Insurance Plans:

Currently, there are several insurance companies that are offering online term insurance plans of Rs 1 crore or more.

Initially premiums of online term plans were not budget friendly. Then, the IRDA passed a new regulation vis-a-vis pricing of the online term life plans; forcing the insurers to reduce the premium rates for term insurance plans of Rs 1 crore or more.

Now, many insurers are offering Rs 1 crore basic term plans at a premium amount of Rs 450 a month to a 25 year old non smoker. The same term insurance with additional riders would cost anywhere between Rs 700 to 900 a month. This amounts to a much lower annual premium rate as compared to government-backed entities like LIC.

However, while purchasing the term insurance policy of Rs 1 crore, you must carefully go through the policy terms and check the underwriting norms as there are stringent rules.
