Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) launched a plan last month called LIC BACHAT PLUS. It is a non-linked (not linked to the stock market), Individual Life Assurance Saving Plan. According to this policy, if the policy holder dies before maturity, the nominee gets a hefty amount. If he stays alive then the policy holder gets the benefit of maturity in which there is also a loyalty edition. It is issued every year by LIC.
