LIFE INSURANCE IS THE BEST WAY TO SAVE TAX
For many, the primary motive for buying life insurance is tax savings. However not all insurance premiums are tax free. Tax deductions for life insurance is subjected to the upper limit under various sections of the Income Tax Act. You should also keep in mind that this exemption limit may not exclusively be for insurance products and may be clubbed with other savings such as PF Contributions, Housing loan interest, etc. Life insurance should only be treated as a risk coverage instrument.
