Opinion : In my opinion one time plan for Insurance never be a good idea for investment. This is nothing but as like Bank’s fixed deposit with locking period. This policy is beneficial to individual under 20% Tax bracket and for saving Tax they are looking for some alternate option of Tax shield FD’s
