Government likely to sell 25% stake in LIC

September 09, 2020

The Modi government is planning to sell a 25% stake in LIC (Life Corporation Of India) in one or more tranches. Retail investors have much to cheer, thanks to IPO discount and bonus planned by the government. The Department of Financial Services (under the Finance Ministry) has released a draft cabinet note to the concerned ministries (like IRDA, NITI and SEBI) for the stake sale in LIC.

With this sale, the government is hoping to fill the huge budget gap, which has grown in the last few months because of the lockdown. The market borrowings will control the sink in revenues (due to lockdown) that has destroyed several businesses. LIC stake sale is expected to play a crucial role in the success of this strategy.

Life Insurance Corporation of India has announced the launch of the modified Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (PMVVY) for senior citizens. LIC has the sole privilege to operate this scheme. It has come out with the details of the Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (Modified 2020). Earlier, the government of India closed the sales of PMVVY in March 2020 and now they have decided to restart the sale of the same for another three financial years.

The customer can directly invest in PMVVY through the official website of the LIC. The extension has provided a big relief to senior citizens of the country as the interest rate on bank fixed deposits is falling rapidly.

PMVVY– New Rules

The biggest change in the new avatar of PMVVY is the reduced pension rate. It will carry a lesser interest rate as compared to before. Unlike the older version of PMVVY, the interest rate of the modified PMVVY will keep varying, which depends on the chosen financial year.

The government has announced the revised interest rate of 7.4% payable monthly i.e. 7.66% per annum for the entire 10 years of the plan. The government will keep on sharing the revised interest rate at the start of each financial year. For the Modified PMVVY, the maximum rate of interest is capped at 7.75% at any point.
