Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) offers various insurance policies to cater to the diverse needs of its customers. While the specific rules and terms may vary depending on the type of policy, there are some general rules that apply to most LIC policies. Please note that these rules are based on information available up to my last update in September 2021, and there might have been changes since then. It is essential to refer to the official LIC website or contact LIC directly for the most current and accurate information. Here are some common rules applicable to LIC policies:
