Should you Buy Jeevan Lakshya Plan 833?
Jeevan Lakshya is just like any other Endowment Plan, but LIC made it look different by garnishing it with a unique death benefit. Even after that the policy does not serve the purpose. With a return of approx. 6% to 7 %, it will not even beat the inflation, although it gives you a life cover but mixing insurance with investment is never a worthy decision.
Instead of buying Endowment Plans, it is always better to take sufficient term plan for life cover and invest surplus money in equity if you are not risk averse or debt instruments like PPF, Bank FDs etc. which gives decent return of around 9% to 10% annually.
