All the policies have a grace period. For the e-Term policy, the company has provided a grace period of 30 days.

Suppose a policyholder does not pay a premium for e-term policy subscribed by him/her on the due date then the policy will still remain in force for the grace period that is 30 days in this case.

The policyholder can make a premium payment any time during this grace period even after the due date. If the policyholder does not pay due premium amount even within this time then after the grace period is over the policy lapses and can be only revived as per the rules and regulations and on the grounds of genuine reasons within two years of a policy lapse.

3. Can the premium for the e-Term policy change?

The premiums of the policies remain the same throughout the tenure of the policy, once the policy has been issued to the proposer, and this includes the e-Term policy as well. The premium amounts can only change due to the service tax regulation that is only the service tax component of the premium amount can change as per government rules and regulations regarding the same.

4. Is the e-Term Policy valid across the globe?

Once the company issues the e-Term policy to a subscriber, then the subscriber becomes the policyholder, and the company provides him/her cover in any part of the world where the policyholder may have to go for work and other reasons.

5. Is It necessary to undergo medical tests to purchase the e-Term plan?

Medical tests may or may not be necessary. It depends on the information furnished by the proposer regarding his/her health status and also on the underwriting requirements for the particular policy.

Proposers who propose policies under the non-smoking category and the medical categories need to undergo the prescribed medical tests.

The company mostly prescribe only basic medical tests like blood and urine tests. Proposers should truthfully disclose all required information including information related to health status as if found to be deliberately hiding information or giving false information at any stage; then policy benefits can get canceled.
