Post office Gram Sumangal Rural Postal Scheme is a Money Back Policy with maximum sum assured of Rs 10 lakh, according to the India Post website

Post Office Savings Scheme: Savings schemes from the government-backed post office has always remained popular among middle class and lower middle class citizens in India. The India Post often comes up with schemes targetted at the low income categories, especially the rural population. Post office savings policies mostly cater to those who want to put their money in a government-run scheme, which will guarantee fixed returns. For the average middle class citizen in India, investing in good schemes with fixed and good rates of interest remains among the topmost priorities. Therefore, the post office has come up with its policy — the Gram Sumangal Rural Postal Life Insurance Scheme.

According to a report by India.com, investors through this scheme can get up to Rs 14 lakh at the time of maturity if he or she invests Rs 95 daily to the Gram Sumangal Account. “It (Gram Sumangal Rural Postal Life Insurance Scheme) is a Money Back Policy with maximum sum assured of Rs 10 lacs, best suited to those who need periodical returns. Survival benefits are paid to the insurant periodically,” says the India Post on its website while describing the policy.

“Such payments will not be taken into consideration in the event of unexpected death of the insurant. In such cases, full sum assured with accrued bonus is payable to the assignee, nominee of legal heir,” adds the India Post in a note describing the scheme.

The Gram Sumangal scheme is a unique policy in its own way. Rather than getting the maturity amount all at once, beneficiaries who sign up for this scheme can get periodical returns.

Also, as mentioned earlier, the nominee or legal heir gets the full amount in case of death of the insurer.
