    Tax Benefits – How you can save with the IndiaFirst Group Term Plan

    The IndiaFirst Group Term Plan provides tax benefits not just to the master policyholder, but also to the members of the group. In case the entire premium is paid by the master policyholder without any contribution from the members, he/she can avail benefits under Section 37(1) of the Income Tax Act. The entire amount paid by him/her qualifies for deduction.

    In case members of the group make a contribution to the premium, the master policyholder cannot avail any tax benefits. Members, however, are eligible for benefits under Section 80C of the Act.

    The amount received as a death benefit is free from tax, as per provisions under Section 10(10D) of the Act.

    Note that the tax laws can change from time to time. It is recommended to consult a tax expert in order to utilise all the benefits provided by the government.
