As this is a money back plan, returns are very low in such schemes. This insurance is for child as child is not a income generator, this plan cannot be of much help.
The returns expected from such schemes varies from 5-7 per cent and at this rate it will not help the kid in higher education or marriage plans when considered practical inflation rate.
If you are looking at a more long term option to meet your child's education need you could consider some large cap equity mutual funds. The reason for this option is that as the tenure for investment is high like 10-20 years, equity mutual funds tend to generate superior returns.
Having said so, we must caution that equity mutual funds also have an element of risk attached to them.
