    About Postal Life Insurance

    The facility of Postal Life Insurance (PLI) has been in existence in India since the pre-Independence era, specifically 1884. The scheme, which was introduced to Her Majesty, the Queen Empress of India following approval from the Secretary of State (for India), was initially a state-run welfare scheme provided to benefit Postal employees, but by 1888, was also offered to those employed with the Telegraph department. By 1894, the Postal Insurance Scheme began providing cover to women employed with the Postal and Telegraph department. This was especially significant as at that time, there were no insurance schemes in existence which offered to provide insurance cover to lives of women. Postal Life Insurance is, hence, the oldest life insurance provider in India.

    Since its inception back in 1884 when it started with only a handful of policies, Postal Life Insurance currently has over 6.4 million policies which provide cover to individuals and their families. As of now, PLI covers a wide range of people, including those employed with the Central and State Government, government-financed educational institutions, Central and State Public Sector Undertakings, government-run universities, local government bodies, joint ventures with a min. 10% Govt./PSU stake, autonomous bodies, nationalized banks, credit co-operative societies etc. the scheme also provides coverage to the staff and officers employed with the Defence and Paramilitary forces.

      I have a very less idea of Insurance sector, on my friends recommendation I ended up buying the ULIP Plan from Bajaj Allianz (https://www.bajajallianzlife.com/ulip/ulip.jsp.) The policy is great and personally I think it is one of the best investment plan with high returns. Service is fast and on time which is well facilitated from the customer services team.
