LIC Wealth Plus – Aapki ya Aapke Agent Ki

LIC Wealth Plus NAVLIC wealth Plus was grossly mis-sold to naive investors.  LIC wealth Plus NAV is Rs 14.44 means just a return of 6.27% since launch. It was launched on 9th Feb 2010 at that time sensex was 16000 & today it is approx 30000 that means a return of 11%. Now investors are feeling cheated. We already told investor this will happen – you can read the complete article, this will tell you what went wrong with this product.

If someone were to tell you that your money will grow @ 17% p.a. and your Rs. 1 lac investment will become Rs. 3.5 lacs in next 8 years, would not you get greedy? And what if it is told to you that such returns are guaranteed by one of the biggest financial institution LIC of India, it would be Icing on the Cake and a “Never Miss Opportunity”. But everything that sounds so good, if looked deeply may reveal something else. Someone rightly said “the big print give it and the fine print take it away”. Such is the case with LIC’s new insurance plan – Wealth Plus.

Game Started in 2007

Every year during the last quarter of Financial Year, insurance agent finds new ways to misguide people and make them invest in policies based on false assumptions and promises. Let us take example of year 2007 when LIC launched one of its most famous policy “Money Plus”.

During the launch, pamphlets were distributed in all the nook and corner of the country showing high returns. Eg., Invest Rs. 1 lac for next three years and get Rs.3.38 crores after 20 years at a return of 25% p.a. Based on such exuberant returns shown on a pamphlet and false promises made by agents, thousands and lakhs of investors all across India invested their money.Not only people invested their savings but there were many instances where smaller households sold their jeweleries and other personal belongings as they were told that LIC is guaranteeing such high returns.

What LIC have to say

Later when the news of wrong selling was brought to the notice of LIC management, LIC states that such assumptions are unrealistic and false. Investors should not be misguided in the name of LIC. On a letter dated February 12, 2007 to all the Zonal Manager and Sr. Divisional Managers, Managing Director of the LIC Mr. Mathur, himself writes that “The unethical practice of circulating such pamphlets to misguide the public and get business is betraying the trust we built-in the last 50 years.” .

LIC Zonal officer letter for misselling in LIC Wealth Plus ULIP Policy

Though efforts were made to stop agents to use such pamphlets but since the agent community is so big and scattered, not much could be done. It was quite amazing that all over India, similar pamphlets were distributed and hence it is clear that without the help of Development Officer of LIC, such work was not possible. D.O. of LIC also gets commission or incentive when his agent gives more business to LIC. See the pamphlets Below

Pamphlets showing returns with Term 3 yrs and investment 25,000

LIC Wealth Plus Misselling Pamphlets

Pamphlets showing returns with Term 1 yr and investment 1,00,000

LIC Wealth Plus ULIP policy misselling pamphlets

What other Govt bodies have to say

Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution through “Jago Grahak Jago” also acknowledged that such misleading things are taking place and hence warned investors to refrain themselves from such high return promises.

D Swaroop(PFRDA Chairman) committee on investor awareness & protection states that “The chief cause of mis-selling is the incentive structure that induces agents to look after their own interest rather than that of the customer. If that were not true, the average sum assured of the insured Indian would be higher than the current Rs 90,000.”

Now when a bread earner of an average Indian family dies untimely, do you think his family will survive for the rest of their life with less than Rs. 90,000 ? Insurance is meant to cover risk of untimely death first and investment & tax saving are secondary criteria. But we the Indians, have been taught Insurance as an investment first, tax savings second and then somewhere in the last we talk of insurance as well. Now again such practice of mis-selling has emerged and agents are targeting LIC’s new product Wealth Plus.

What is LIC Wealth Plus Product

This product of LIC which was launched on February 9, 2010 (Table 801) states that LIC will guarantee the highest NAV to the investor in the first 7 years and product will mature after 8 years. It nowhere guarantees the return. In its official web-site, LIC states that the minimum guarantee will be of Rs. 10 NAV as Rs. 10 will be the starting point. Actually that means that they are not even guaranteeing that you will get your entire money back as there will be certain charges in the policy itself. They have nowhere written that they will guarantee any amount of return to the investor. Nor they have mentioned that your money will be invested 100% into equity.

Now what Agents are telling

# LIC is giving guarantee on HIGHEST RETURN. (LIC is saying Highest NAV)

# Now what is highest return? Based on past performance of LIC’s ULIP policy (Bima Gold), you will get 17%-18% return on investment.

# Lumpsum Rs. 1 lac invested today will become Rs.3,45,693/- or give Rs 25000 for 3 years & get Rs.2,14,690/- after 8 years.

# You should switch all your earlier product (on which agents have already made huge commission) into this product as this is something which is as good as KOHINOOR DIAMOND.

To generate such high returns, the money has to remain but LIC nowhere states that. In almost all ULIPs it is clear how much money will go in equities and how much money will go in debt, but this olicy is silent on the allocation percentage and hence you may land up getting returns that of endowment or money back. (nearly 6%-7%).

Bima Gold of LIC was a ULIP where it was mandatory for the fund manager to remain invested in Equities in a pre-decided proportion. It was launched in 2001 when the markets were trading at 3000 sensex levels and later sensex touched even 21000. Is it a right approach to compare such high returns which were made during Bull Market and making investor believe that such returns will be now guaranteed by LIC. Now if you go to a small shopkeeper, a carpenter or a young executive and show them that you will get such high return, why he/she will not invest and that too if they are told that guarantee is done by the India’s biggest financial institution, LIC.

We feel sorry to say but such agents who are misleading people do not even think twice before selling such policies in a wrong approach. The fact of the matter is that the money is just not invested in policies but gets invested in someone’s kids higher education, someone’s retirement, some dreams which common man look to achieve. We believe that

Insurance agents have sold to Indian everything other than Insurance.

What is IRDA guidelines says

As per IRDA, agents and Insurance companies are mandated to show return either at 6% or 10%. But the pamphlet distributed have no regards for Regulatory guidelines. Let’s Compare return according to pamphlet & IRDA Guidelines:

# Figures are approx.

Innocent Investors ?

We believe even investor is at fault and not all the blame should be transferred to the Agents alone. It is always “Buyers Beware”. We take well thought decision before we buy even a fridge in our house. We do research which fridge is best for us and look at least 4-5 shops before we finalize. But when it comes to financial products, we don’t really do our home work and at times decision is taken not even going through the pros and cons of the policy.

Now what investors should do?

If you have already taken the policy

# Cancel the policy if bought under false promises and high projection. The policy can be returned within 15 days of the receipt of the document without any charges under ‘free-loo
k’ option.

# If 15 days are over, nothing much can be done.

If Not Taken

# Take your well thought decision before jumping on to this product.

# Tell your friends about the same.

  1. It is true that the agents are making guilible fools of uneducated persons. But I feel LIC is also knowingly supporting these adverts. You walk in at any of the LIC offices and you will find the leaflets strewn around. If LIC really wants to stop fooling clients then they should first remove these leaflets from their premises. And take some action against the erring agents (which I know is a pipe dream).

    • @ Ajeet

      We agree with you.

      But even investors are at mistake – they run 24*7 to earn money but not even give 24 minutes to learn how to manage it.

        • You must be having approx 3411 units. Multiply that by the highest NAV as of maturity of the policy (currently it’s 15.42) which means you will get somewhere around 52 to 54 thousand. Mind you, some tax (TDs) will be deducted at source. So this amount will go.down by few thousand bucks. So effectively you will get approx 50 to 53 thousand. Hope this answers

              • Sir, if you go to your account in licindia.in you can see the number of units you have.

                For example: I invested 2000 per month for 3 years from year 2010 totally 72000 Rs. Now, I have 6180 units and NAV is 15.32 so I will get Rs.94000 (after tax deduction I am not sure) next week March 2018.

                After seeing all comments, I think I am lucky to at least get my money back… when I took policy that agent said I will get minimum 2 lacs because market is growing strong.

            • Sachin,

              You can check it in licindia.in inside your account.

              I invested 2000 per month for 3 years from year 2010 totally 72000 Rs. Now, I have 6180 units and NAV is 15.32; so approx for 60000 you will get 5000 to 5250 units or something .. Sir I am not a consultant.. I am giving only approx value based on my account.

      • How you say investors mistake, these west LIC agents and LIC people how they are looted from innocent investors. Now peoples are aware and they are not trusting on LIC.

  2. hi didnt want to point out but u hv mentioned bima gold which is a money back policy instead of bima plus which is a pure ulip….no hard feelings pls..any admired article as usual…

  3. Sir, After got cheated by AGENTS of Insurance/Mutural fund, I wake up and acquired some knowledge on how to invest. Am investing in some schemes which i feel fit to my requirement and my monthly budget and earning 8 to 12% per annum. I feel this much return is sufficient. If the Governemnt removes AGENTS/PARACITES Sytem I can get 4% more extra on my investment.

    Now also 4% to 5% of my earnings are being transferred to the Agents pockets as commission. We are bound to buy the products through agents only in LIC and Mutual funds. In mutual fund offices if we go directly and apply for a product they should not charge initial charges. But they are receiveing money giving the receipt, after i receive the statement Agents name is appearing. Paracites never leave any opportunity, because they are shameless.

    In post offices if we buy 6 years national savings certificate, or 5 year RD, or PPF any thing, if we buy directly the Staff of that Post office giving so many troubles, which means they are forcing us indirectly to come through agents.

    Why our hard earned money go to the pockets of Agents. If that 4% to 5% commision not given to agents then we can get more returns. Why governmet allowing/ encouraging AGENTS and commission business.

    Why Government making AGENTS as PARACITES like Cycle/Scooter/Car parking contracters. Why it is allowing them to loot our pockets??

    • Hi Shiva,

      It looks that you have faced some severe mis-selling by insurance agent – can you please share some instance so others can be get some benifit by reading your practical experience.

      I agree with your points that if someone don’t need an intermediary the benefit should be transferred to investor. Hopefully you may something like this in 2012 🙂

      • for your kind information now lic agents are become more shameless.they collect cash from uneducated person specially from housewife those are gather money from their daily bazar and agents are investing that money at local market at high interest for 2-3months then they submit to lic.
        By this they also earned commission from lic and interest.
        IS THIS THE REAL PICTURE OF LIC?????ARE THEY TRAINED LIKE THIS TO LOOT THE INNOCENT PEOPLE????

      • કોઈ પણ સ્કીમની લોવર લિમિટ હોવી જોઈએ એનાથી વધુ નુકશાન કમ્પની બેર કરે.LIC ટોટલી ઉલ્લુ બનાવી ગયા.મારો સદાને માટે વિશ્વાસ ઉઠી ગયો. Jivan ke sath bhi jivan ke bad bhi.ઉલ્લુ બનાવવાની સ્કીમ

    • Cheated more than “Saroda” and “Rose Valley” in Kolkata. LIC lost trust of people by any means. People should not trust any agents in financial, insurance and banking market. Just look for savings account and fixed deposit, do not jump for high return which has no trust. Otherwise, just buy assets that can give good return, like buy land.

  4. Hemant,

    With SBI , last september 2010 i started smart performer ulip paying 1lac ( supposed to pay 1lac for next two premiums more years) , they write similar to LIC ones mentioned by you, Highest NAV guaranteed.
    Could you pls check if this is same case

  5. I feel the LIC agents should not be be there. If some are from ur well known circle or family its a pain in throat. I was given policies by agent only after a month and never got a chance to have free look, when I wanted to cancel Wealth Plus. We investors now know of these misguidance, should beware and be cautious ourselves and not repeat the mistake of making money from LIC. LIC should only be for “life insurance” — thats the lesson I learnt.

    • Hi Amit,

      You rightly said “If some are from ur well known circle or family its a pain in throat.” & this brigade is made by all insurance cos. And relative & friends of insurance are called “natural market”.

    • Absolutely true. LIC should not be taken granted for making good money. It is purely for “LIFE INSURANCE”
      I too feel cheated today when got SMS that an amount of 1.01 Lac only credited to my account as against investment of 80K in LIC Wealth Policy 8 years back.
      I have decided that from now onwards, not to believe in Agent words who is well known to me since last 18 years.

  6. When buying term insurance, which is better option? Single premium or regular premium. Isn’t Single premium better as you pay only once when you have cash in hand and do not bother for the term of the policy. With regular premiums, the advantage is that you can simply stop payment and ensure the policy lapses, if you feel there’s no need for cover. The difference in single and regular premiums is almost 50%. What is your advice?

    • Hi Brett,

      Don’t go for single premium – if you compare premiums by time value of money you will find that single premium is damn expensive. (With inflation value of Rupee decreases.) Other reason you have stated is very valid “the advantage is that you can simply stop payment and ensure the policy lapses, if you feel there’s no need for cover. ”

      One more point if something happens to insured in initial year of term – I hope you have understood what I am hinting.

  7. please advise me whether I should continue with the policy or not. I have taken policy in three installments of 1.5 lacs each. I have only paid 1.5 lacs as first premium. My second installment of premium is due in May 2011. Please guide me if I discontinue the policy how much I would loose or is it worth it now to discontinue the policy.

    • Hi Raghava,

      Better don’t pay 2nd premium – your policy will be lapsed & after completion of 3 years you will get the surrender value.
      Talk to your agent – check your policy documents & share updates on ASK US. (don’t allow your agent to trick you again)

    • Hi Raghava,

      Read this:
      Surrender:

      The policy can be surrendered only during the policy term. The surrender value, if any, is payable only after the completion of the third policy anniversary both under Single and 3 years Premium Paying Term contract. The surrender value will be the Policyholder’s Fund Value at the date of surrender. There will be no Surrender charge. The policy can not be surrendered during the extended life cover period.

      If you apply for surrender of the policy within 3 years from the date of commencement of policy, then the Policyholder’s fund value of units shall be converted into monetary terms. No charges shall be deducted thereafter and this monetary value shall be paid on completion of 3 years from the date of commencement of policy.

      In case of death of life assured after the date of surrender but before the completion of 3 years from the date of commencement of policy the monetary value payable on the completion of 3 years shall be payable to the nominee/ legal heir immediately on death.

      Compulsory Surrender:
      The policy shall be surrendered compulsorily in following cases:
      i) where the policy is not revived during the period of revival, the policy shall be terminated after completion of 3 years from the date of commencement of the policy or on expiry of revival period, whichever is later.
      ii) where single premium has been paid or premiums have been paid for less than 3 years and the policy is in force and the balance in policyholder’s fund value is not sufficient to recover the relevant charges;
      iii) where 3 full years’ premium are paid and the balance in policyholder’s fund value falls below 50% of one annualized premium.

      The conversion in monetary value shall be as under:
      The NAV on the date of application for surrender or on the date when revival period is over (in case of compulsory surrender), as the case may be, multiplied by the number of units in the Policyholder’s Fund as on that date.

  34. So, now all of us are sure that LIC (controlled by GOI) is no better than SARADHA & other Chit ( or Cheating ? ) Funds operating in West Bengal. LIC’s agents are misleading commoners the same way SARADHA’s agents have operated; the only difference being LIC’s agents get 4-5% as commission whereas SARADHA’s agents got 25-40%. Poor fellas !!!!!!!!!
    It is reliably learnt that these CHEATING MASTERS of the CHIT FUNDS took a leaf of the books of LIC; most of the guys were LIC agents before joining the bandwagon of PONZI schemes.

  35. Dear Investors,
    We are talking about only LIC but the same condition prevails with all insurance companies. ULIP introdued by all the Public as well as Private Insurance company is only useful for the growth of their insurane companies and not for the investors. IRDA is closing its eyes on ULIP plans of the insurance companies. I was betrayed by the agents of atlest 5 insurance companies including LIC. I have been paying continuous premium for the past 5 years and still none of Policies could fetch me even the principle amount which I have paid to the insurance companies. I am not able to surrender because I have to pay surrender charges if I surrender beore 7 years. I am actually trapped. IRDA is not bothered about common man. No common guidelines for the charges charged by the insuance companies from the common man.

  36. dear sir
    i’ve already invested in this policy and now feel cheated from the side of agent and want to complaint against him…is anything can be done regarding this matter,
    secondly i paid my last installment in 2013 and i’ve invested totally 75,000 in it…how will i come to know when is good time to take my money back…..and what will i’ll get now if i’ll submit my papers…

    please help

  37. I feel we should not invest in LIC at all. If at all we want to invest then only term plan will be better Jeevan Amulya or Jeevan Amogh. Though premium will be high you will have peace of mind because its with one and only LIC 🙂

  38. Sir,

    If it is of urgency and we have to break or surrender the wealth plus policy after 3 years, is there a deduction or we atleast get back the sum we eventually invest??

  39. Sir,

    If it is of urgency and we have to break or surrender the wealth plus policy after 3 years, is there a deduction or we atleast get back the sum we eventually invest??

    I feel like i have been cheated by my agent.

  40. Dear sir,
    I have purchased lic welth plus policy and Rs 50.000.00 paid as one time.
    Now three years passed Lic promised to pay hightest nav value in seven years.
    Please let me know What is the hightest NAV value go after three years passed and
    if I have surrender the policy what amount I have receive from LIC.

  41. Oh! LIC’s wealth plus product is nothing but a big trap for the people who invested in it. It is more than three years since its launch,but still the nav remains at the level from where it started or less. Neither one can withdraw or surrender,lest there will be huge loss. People joined this product thinking that it is launched by LIC and at least one can get the base value. Everybody has burnt his finger by investing in such a unproductive venture. Disgraceful!!

  42. hello sir
    I have a wealth plus investment policy. recently I checked the NAV ,the increasing rate is very low comparing to other policies.if the situation continues, what amount I will get last time? or is it advisable to that surrender my policy?and what amount will get if surrender

  45. Sir,
    I have invested Rs. 25000/- per year ( 3 Years) i.e. Rs. 75000/- in welth plus Plan (LIC), and the LIC has sent to me statment. In that statement it is found that the amount calculted by me only Rs. 69000/-.

  46. hello sir
    we ordinary peoples getting information form LIC agents and their sub agents regarding new policies and other investment schemes. when hearing their words we are interested to invest our all money and we believes their words also, and it is leading to misunderstandings. so when launching new policies or other schemes publish all policy related clause in news papers in local languages LIC directly.

  47. I have received the unit/NAV statement from LIC for the current year for the wealth plus 2010.I have invested 50000 each for three years trusting the LIC and the agent aiming at fair returns.But LIC is deducting charges approximately Rs 3000 per year.The current statement says that amount available is only Rs 128000(deducting charges) which means I have lost 22000 in three years from my principle itself.Needless to say no interest on amount invested.If it continues for another 5 years imagine what will happen.I will be getting back 113000, a loss of 37000 for investing in premium institute for NAV of 10.Meaning LIC is taking Rs 37000 from me for keeping my money of 1.5 Lacs for 8 years.Even a bank interest we will fetch 1.5+1.5 lacs for this period.

  48. In view of the above commenst of the investors, what is the opinion of LIC regarding wealth plus plan as the NAV of wealth plus plan is down is compare to the sensex

  49. Respected Sir,

    I have by chance come accross your site and believe me your explanations are wonderful as I am also one of the foolish/layman investor who wanted to become rich in a short period. Can you kindly sujjest me some place where I can invest money and get a return of 12%. My top priority is safety as I am a salaried person and if I loose money now I may not be able to earn it again. My age is 48 yrs.

    Thanks

  53. PLZ HELP AND GUIDE

    i have invested Rs. 100000.00 in wealth plus 801 on 20.03.2010..
    as on date bse sensex is approx 67 percent up..
    if i keep ma money in debt/FDR in 4 full year.. i assume ma money wud have been atleast 40 percent up..
    where the fund manager have invested the money i don know.. as on date my NAV is 11.89 only .. its means only 19 percent up..

    i wanna ask fundmanger where they have invested ma hard earning.. surely not in stock market.. not in debt..
    plz help and guide me can i sue fund manager for dis.. i m feeling cheated by heart..
    plz help me

  54. I have invested Rs. 1 Lac in year 2010 in Wealth plus. I would like toknow how to check NAV so that whenever there is little hight that return little more than lac I can surrender the policy. But want to know the calculation and what the no. of units.

  55. I invested Rs 95000/= in LIC wealth type in March 2010. My agent advised me to surrender this policy in Nov 2014. The surrender value was just Rs 1,03,237/= i.e hardly 5% gain over a period of 4 years and 8 months. Further TDS @25 was deducted on the total fund value i.e.Rs 1,03,237/= . With deduction of TDS, I need to include the entire fund value in my taxable income for the FY 2014-15. That means I need to pay Income tax @20% on the entire fund vaue of Rs 1,03,237/= . Thus the amount I receive after paying IT @20 % would become less than Rs 85000/= That means against investment of Rs 95000/= , I am receiving an amount of Rs 85000/= after 4 years 8 months. LIC and its agents are great. I did not expect such a cheating from a reputed Govt of India Company , LIC. Can we believe our Govt to help small investors against such cheating.

  56. sir my wealth plus L I C policy three year premium amount 20000.00 per year start policy month/ year 20/4/2010 date of expiry of the policy 20/4/2018 want to surrender my policy/ partial withdraw can I know what amount will return my policy no 766505761

  57. LIC WELTHPLUS is a robbing scheme they have cheated public royally, they are great Mismanagers that’s why they are working for LIC apart from wrongly investing they are also charging Admin charges for the bad work being done by them. I will never invest in LIC market linked schemes.

  58. Sir, i took one policy of lic wealthplus plan no. 801 in 2010.now i want to know my policy status .can you send on my email id.

  59. I am also cheated by LIC agent by selling LIC Market plus (wealth plus) plan 801 with single premium Rs 100000.00 on 22.03.2010 maturing on 22.03.2018 further extended 2 yrs to 23.03.2020 and misleading me giving wrong information. Please give me best advice what should I do? 12.07.2016

  60. dear sir, many thanks for your article. but according to me whatever may be the reason, we have done this policy. now what should we do? will sell it at present NAV or hold it because as per my knowledge LIC may go for a IPO and it happens then certainly NAV will go up beyond our expectations.

    • 14.65 is the max till now i have invested 3lac now after 8 years getting 3.8lac only how sham on lic bloddy bugger agents

  61. i have invested in wealth plus, i got wrong feed back from agent, and also blindly trusting lic, but today my fund value is notthing, fund mangement are more knowledgeble, but today I am looser , my investment is Rs.200000/ who is responsible ? for misguiding us, if we are making any single mistake, then same lic is ready to punish us with high penalty, now who will solve my problem

  62. Sir I have by lic wealth plus in April 2010 and paid 40000/year for 3year and paid all three primium total 120000 and my policy matured in April 2018 how many return I got sir

  63. Note we cannot clap with one hands. Similarly LIC and agents are working hand in gloves to fool customers and the blame is pushed on agents alone. If you are aggrieved by agent not giving service and wish to change agent , LIC will straight away not cooperate you and that agent will appear life long in the policy. If agent is not giving service for non earning and you ask LIC the amount of commission paid in your policy , LIC will reply that you( the customer ) is a third party in his own policy and hence LIC cannot share information. Lic is working hand in gloves with agents to fool customers.
    LIC think that they are above law and dictate their own terms. Each branch has its own decisions in issuing a policy though it is a central act. I have vey bad experience with LIC and hence forth I will never invest any money with lic. I gave tough fight to LIC in rti and thus saved my one policy and saved my 1,75,000 rupees. I gave another chance to LIC again they cheated and closed my 6 polices only because I threatened to go to court. I somehow again under rti revived my polices but LIC extorted money from me and the matter is in court own for refund of excess premium. All those who are reading this please note lic high level officers as well as senior agents are not aware of many facts or they are fooling customers. Recently LIC published PM Modijis photo in their pension plan. In pension plan there is no insurance still signature is taken on section 45 of insurance act which should never be signed in pension plan . The senior Crm have admitted their mistakes orally but still have failed to remove the same from the form of pension plans. Please friends do not sign blindly on insurance forms . While filling forms be very cautious regarding your health. Even if your health is good write I don’t know I don’t remember and insist LIC to do medical otherwise they have very good reason to reject claim. Somebody mistake or weak point is taken as opportunity by insurance companies to fulfill some another claims and also to earn profits. LIC has harts passed me from pillar to post and they are white collar criminals. But LIC don’t know that people are not educatednow .There is technology.
    ,rti,consumer protection act etc.mi have read thousands of judgements of ombudsman maximum are in favor of LIC . Consumer protection act though a consumer may succeed at district or state level but very less people succeed at national level. Consumers have only 15 days to cancel policy but insurance companies have two years and now it appears that same has increased. Also LIC does not provide copy proposal form to its customers . Also as per terms and conditions of LIC , LIC is not bound to give reminders for renewal of premium and In that case agents do it apprroach and consumers forget ,lots of hardship is caused to consumers. Thus my request is to invest very small amount which even one can forget and if one wants to really put big money consult a good consumer lawyer who is well versed with insurance policies and the
    Invest money.

  64. Sir,
    My Policy No. is 494504783. Paid @Rs. 50000 for three years. 7th year completed.
    Please inform about the amount of fund / surrendered value now.
    Regards.

  65. shame on lic and there agents. they play game for his benefit from hardearn money from investors like me. my family hope collapse due 2 this policy. TRUST ON LIC IS REDUSED . I CONSIDER ON MY ANOTHER LIC POLICY TO BE CONTINUED OR NOT.

  66. The best way to remedy the fiasco of Wealth plus plan’s investment and lowest returns is to waive the entire Allocation charges and Admn. charges levied so far by LIC and settle the Fund Value along with the waived charges to investors on the maturity date.

  67. all the lnsurance company are giving only 4 to 5.5℅ pa avg. IRDA was unknown .now they are wakeup but now investors are going to sleep

  68. LIC is the biggest fraud company of India. It has cheated mainly Middle class and poor people of our country. But all our Governments including the current of Mr. Modi, has given licence to cheat and loot the people of India. Not only that, this is nothing bit a corruption. If you collect crores of rupees from people on false promises under full knowledge of Higher Management and Top Official and Ministers of Government, How can you you say that, we are not responsible and only people who has taken policy are responsible. Because Government whenever wants money for disinvestment, they force LIC, at the cost of People. Look at any policy of LIC, have you ever got return above 6 %. At least I have not got. I have maximum exposure to LIC. I am ashamed. What can be done. That is why we say , India is Great.

  69. I never imagined that LIC can be a master of cheaters. I invested 120000 in wealth plus and got 125000 only after 7 years. What a joke?. I can never recomend LIC to any body.
    Earlier the same thing happened with master plus. I had to take money back after 3 yrs.

  78. Lic wealth plus policy is only for their mutual ( LIC , LIC Agent’s & Govt. Of india ) benefit , it is not for policy holders benefits , mostly LIC & LIC Agent’s are cheated of their customers.
    I was also invested 40k in single premium & got only 50998 on maturity.

  79. I have cheated by LIC. I have invested 3,00,000.00 in wealth plus plan my agents said that in 8 year LIC will give me 9,44,000 Rupees all time highest NAV, but after 8 year you can’t imagine what I got from LIC 4,17,940 only. I highly recommend that don’t invest in LIC and don’t trust any LIC agents.

I invested 60000 and and got back 79000 after 8 years. This is gross bull shit, what kind of stupid policy is this? Can you please explain how and at what percentage the return was calculated?

  85. I Have Paid Rs 20000 per year x 3 year = Total Rs 60,000 in 2010-2011.
    Now I got 75,992/- ( after 7-8 year ).
    It is like Joke by LIC.

  86. I Have Paid Rs 20000 per year x 3 year = Total Rs 60,000 in 2010-2011.
    Now I got 75,992/- ( after 7-8 year i.e. 26% return in 7-8 year, i.e. 4% return in the year which is less than saving acount ).
    I feel that LIC has made Joke.

    • Yes Ashvin. Even I got the similar amount. LIC has cheated in this case. They have wrong promise. They should be sued in the consumer court which I am planning to

    • I Have Paid Rs 20000 per year x 3 year = Total Rs 60,000 in 2010-2011.
      I got now 59112 rupees only…..
      I feel that LIC has made Joke…

  87. I paid Rs.20000 for 3 years ( wealth plus) =Rs. 60000 on 20/03/2010 , Policy no 498134074
    Please send me policy status ( NAV units, NAV) or Maturity Value

  89. The money of Wealth Plus was invested in the company of Kirti Chidambaram during the Congress government period. Now, during the BJP government, some scams of Kirti Chidambaram came out, among them LIC is a scam. But it did not disclose as LIC should not cause damage. That company met less of the closure of the shutdown … make sure …

  90. very ashmed to write here that LIC cheated they have taken Rs.100000/- in 2010 wealth plus and
    after 8 years they paid Rs.132491 after deducting tds 1325/- means we are assuming it will be Rs2lacs and above, but this is shameful, those LIC agents and ULIP holders mangers should see the jail , I want to make a court case against this cheating with LIC India Pls suggest any good advocate or legal action against LIC so that in near future they should not loot the general public with bloody dog agents, Today I have decided that if any LIC agent will approach to me I will shoot only gaaali and he will not get any respect from my side.

  91. I Urmila Ashish Bansal taken policy of Wealth plus on recommendation of mr Jayprakash of Rs. 40000/-after waiting for 8 years i.e on maturity i received Rs.39861/-its a bonus they have given principle amt has been eaten upby LIC i feel cheated by LIC and its shear nonsense on their part. begining they were claiming amount would get doubled but this way bank also does not do.POLICY should be”” Wealth minus””

  92. I Urmila Ashish Bansal taken policy of Wealth plus on recommendation of agent mr Jayprakash of Rs. 40000/-after waiting for 8 years i.e on maturity i received Rs.39861/-its a bonus they have given principle amt has been eaten upby LIC i feel cheated by LIC and its shear nonsense on their part. begining they were claiming amount would get doubled but this way bank also does not do.POLICY should be”” Wealth minus””

  93. lic welth policy is fraud policy .it represted by lic officer to earn for own not for policy holder . they are at the of paid premiem invest one lach you get 4 lakh after 8 year. but they gave only 1.35 lakh.this is fasvnuk policy .agent and lic officer is also froad .only collect the from the genral poor public. only show high return but not given

  94. I purchased wealth plus with rs 100000 single premium in 2010. After 8 years I sent for redemption. I was shocked when I received just rs 105853. When I contacted LIC they told that I was lucky to get 5853 profit after 8 years because my age at entry was 57.

  95. LIC is good for reach people. Your principal will be safe for sure.. Most of the our hard earned money are taken by the agents. My wealth plus investment of 1 lakh after 8 years is just 1,34,000 on feb 2018. A saving account is far respectable. LIC sucks. I will make sure that my children never opt for LIC. Had my father lived today, he would repent for the decision he made for us for our future. And mostly in India business based on lie. If not, why LIC does not place strict rules for the agents(trained shameless lairs?) so that the customers are not duped. It is not always possible to read and understand everything between the lines. People invests in faith.

  96. This is with referance to your artical, about LIC agent and tag line AAP KI YAA AAP KE AGENT KI

    This refers to whole community of Insurance advisory.

    Before writing this article Do you know ?
    1. What is the standard division of this product.
    2. what Is mean ?
    3. What is HPR

    Is that anything declare by any Insurance company or any Mutual fund company that what will be Future value of the equity base product?
    there are so many mutual fund and ULIP product, they had performed below benchmark returns.

    so understand everything before writing wrong comment to any professional community.

    • Hi Jignesh,

      I understand all these points that you have mentioned & you will be surprised I have written 2 posts on these topics. Not sure how you are justifying mis-selling of this product.

  97. HOW PITTY, JUST TO GAIN SOME PROFIT LIC OF INDIA BEHAVED WORST THAN LIKE LIC OF PAKISTAN. WHILE ASKING MY AGENT, HE TOLD AT THAT TIME MANAGERS GUIDED 3 -3.5 TIMES OF INVESTED AMOUNT WILL BE THE MATURED AMOUNT. WE COMPLAINED. DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH FACT IS IT. LIC LOST ITS CREDIBILITY AS WELL AS THE AGENTS TOO , AGENTS ARE ALWAYS AGENT THEY WILL NEVER BE MORE THAN THAT.

  98. Dear All,

    LIC is really Bull Shit.

    My Parents invested their Hard working Money 1 Lacs Rs in LIC’s Welth Plus Policy in year March 2010.
    In April 2018 after 8 Years they received 1 Lacs 4 thousand Rs.

    this is really Joke by LIC, they really Cheating with their Loyal customers.

    I feel very Angry and helpless for my parents and can not do anything now.

    BEWARE FROM SUCH FALSE COMMITMENTS FROM LIC

  99. I invest 50000 in march 2010 in lic wealth plus
    can you please tell me how much amount i will get in the end of march-2018
    please reply

  100. LIC has cheated me by their policy Wealth Plus. Bcoz LIC agent told me that if i pay Rs. 40,000/- once for purchasing wealth plus policy, after 8 years i will get minimum Rs. 1,50,000/-. Hence, i had purchased wealth plus policy for Rs. 40000/-

    Now the policy has expired and when i submitted to LIC office , i only got Rs. 52,000/-.

    So i request everyone to check & think twice before purchasing any LIC policy.

  101. Kindly advise tax treatment on the Maturity, Will Indexation shall be applicable to calculate CAPITAL LOSS?

  102. Big Cheating !!!! Cheating !!! Cheating!!! Is there any group where we can file a case against LIC ??? i invested my hard earned money 40k in 3 policy in 2010 and after 8 years what i am getting now is 46k ….. i will never trust on LIC any more .. LIC is Big cheater .. We all should unite and take action against LIC
    Reply

  103. Dear Sir,
    I have cheated by LIC I have invested RS 50000/- in wealth plus table no 108, my agents said that in 8 year LIC will give you highest NAV.but after 8 year you can’t imagine what l got from LIC that is RS 64000/- only.I highly recommend that don’t invest in LIC, it is better to invest our money in bank,Post Office,and private coy like Baja alliance ect because pvt coy gave better return than LIC,LIC is very bakwas coy don’t trust it.

  104. Sir I invested 12500×6=150000 in 8-05-2010 to 8-5-2011 after maturity2-7-2018 LIC gave me only 110000 why less money gave me. Policy no. 236794617

  105. i have invested rs. 7 lakh in wealth plus over a period of three years during 2010, 2011 and 2012, LIC is paying me only Rs. 764000/- due to agents and premium collectors.
    I shall not advise anybody to invest in LIC because of the experience.

  106. Hi Hemant,

    Where to check number of units in my account? I checked online for my wealth plus policy, but not sure where to find that in site on my lic page. Need your urgent help. As already late in retrieving my money 🙁
    Can we fill some online form for redeeming policy money by giving account number?
    Please help with the info. Thanks in advance!
    Kritika

  107. Hi Hemant,

    Can you please advise me as to where to find my total number of units in my lic page. Cant find it 🙁
    Also how to redeem policy money back without visiting LIC office. Is there any form which can be filled online where we provide the bank details?

    Thanks,
    Kritika

  108. Its cheating LIC doing.. I just received rs 43200 for rs 40,000 invested in 2010. Its gross misappropriation of funds and LIC should reimburse. I think we all should make a group and file a case against LIC. Also thrash some LIC agents who come to you with any stupid plans and thrash some LIC ppl. then they will know for sure what they are doing.

  109. Hello,

    I think the whole purpose of this Policy is Death Cover i.e. 50 L at the most.
    Disputed Points:
    1. Accident Cover is between 50,000 – 50,00,000/-
    2. The policy is for 8 years + 2 years extended.
    3. Accident Cover cannot be claimed in an extended period.
    4. The policy starts with 10 FAV i.e. the time one has invested he/she is in negative on the first day.
    5. The policyholder is entitled to get the report of NAV every year.

    Solution: One can file a case in consumer forum taking appropriate grounds.

    Thanks a ton to Mr. Hemant Beniwal for posting Circular of LIC.

  110. Yes it is complete cheating. Innocent public are taken for ride. In spite of extremely very low return, they deducted a TDS of 1% of maturity money, and declared to IT dept that the total maturity money is my income for this year. That meansi i have to pay 30% of my maturity value as tax. Mismanagement of weath plus fund totally, and with a defectful clause in terms of tax on the maturity. Some one has to take up this seriously.
