Sadabahar Plan

Sadabahar Plan

Sadabahar is an anticipated endowment type with-profit plan that provides lump sum benefit at certain stages during the premium-paying term or on earlier death. In addition, this plan has a built-in Accidental Death Benefit (ADB) rider so that the policyholder gets an additional sum assured in case of death due to an accident.

This plan is a safe instrument for cash provision at the time of need. With this plan, the policyholder can secure greater protection and continued prosperity for the family at an affordable cost.
