Since Shankar died within 5 years of buying the plan, the Death Benefit paid to the nominee would be the higher of the following:.
 
  • Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 1,00,000 = Rs. 1,00,000
  • 10 times the Annual Premium = 10 x Rs. 8,712 = Rs. 87,120

The policy terminates.
 
 
Scenario 2 - Shankar dies after paying premiums for 7 years.
 
Shankar would be eligible to receive the 1st tranche of Survival Benefit and nominee would receive the Death Benefit.
