LIC Childern?s Money Back Plan (Table 832) ? Should I buy?
As per my opinion, this plan will not suffice?the purpose of buying it i.e. securing your child’s future. With the return of 5% to 6% ?(maximum of 7%), this plan does not even beat the inflation. Although there is a benefit of insurance coverage but these types of plan are not bought considering the child may die in policy term.
Instead of buying this?Children?s Money Back Plan, you should invest in other debt instruments like Mutual Funds, Bank Fixed Deposits, Public Provident Fund, Sukanya Samriddhi Account etc. which gives better return of 9%, higher than this plan and also gives a tax-free return with 80C deduction on the contribution.
