The Bima Sanchay Yojana is a micro variable life insurance plan offered by Bajaj Allianz focusing on providing financial protection in an event of unfortunate circumstances at reasonable prices. The premiums under this plan are as low as Rs.1,800 and policyholders will benefit with tax returns according to the income tax laws.
This plan is the combination of life insurance and savings plan with Guaranteed Investment Returns (GIR) as well as Additional Investment Returns (AIR). Policyholders will also have the option to partially withdraw from their policy in an event of financial emergency.
In order to apply for this life insurance policy, applicants have to meet certain eligibility criteria. The following criteria have to be met to apply for the Life Bima Sanchay Yojana policy:

Premium refers to the amount that needs to be paid in order to avail a certain policy. Under the Life Bima Sanchay Yojana, the following premiums are applicable:

For the Regular Term and Limited Term policies, the premiums shall be paid on a yearly basis.

This plan offers both Maturity Benefit as well as Death Benefit. If the life assured survives until the policy term ends, they will receive a Policy Account Value (PAV) when the policy matures.
Death Benefit is applicable in case the life assured passes away on account of an unfortunate circumstance before the policy term ends. A benefit higher than the Sum Assured + Policy Account Value will be paid after Bajaj Allianz has been intimated regarding the life assured’s death.

In an event of suicide of the life assured within a year from the commencement date of the policy or the most recent revival date of the policy, the PAV offered by Bajaj Allianz will be limited. Furthermore, the death benefit offered under the policy will also cover the GIR as well as the AIR that have been credited or any charges that have been recovered after the death of the life assured.
