    The reply is requested, please.

  3. Can BSNL executives be allowed quarterly / half yearly premium payments instead of yearly at a time for our group term insurance of LIC.

    • LIC of India has allowed the facility of quarterly payment of premiums for BSNL Group term insurance of 20 lakhs policy.

  4. Sir, one of our officer T.vasudevan opted for GTI and paid insurance premium, Now he expired, how to claim? where the documents available? kindly guide.

  5. Plz suggest how can I get the return of Group term policy premium, One month not yet completed, There should be free look period.

  6. I have opted initially in Jan.19 and later I have asked the concerned AO Pay before 31.01.2019 to cancel my option and not to recover the premium from my salary, But the same was not effected, Please stop the recovery and refund if any amount is recovered to that effect I have represented through proper channel.

    • Once you have been cheated, there is no way to get your refund back, They won’t enroll you for the BSNL GTI Policy nor will they refund anything, There are better Group Term Insurance Plans available for as low as Rs 11771 per annum for a risk coverage of Rs 50 Lakh till the age of 60 with an additional benefit of coverage of your spouse in the same amount of premium, GTI Scheme is more of a scam, Here with LIC, they have considered anyone above 50 but less than 51 to be of 51 and have deducted a premium of Rs 45340.00, whereas for all other companies available in market including PSU Banks, you are considered to be 51 on the next birthday after you have attained the age of 51.
      So even if you have been cheated once, spread the message and to go for better options with other companies other than LIC & this bogus GTI Scheme.

    • After the completion of entire process with LIC, long waited Group Term Insurance GTI got implemented with effect from 02.03.2019 for the BSNL direct recruitees, and the cheque is issued by BSNL on 2nd March and handed over to Life Insurance Corporation.
