  3.

The remaining policy benefits shall continue throughout the policy term. 
  4. Provides cover against pregnancy related complications and child birth related abnormalities for which sum assured is fixed at 20% of Basic Sum Assured. This benefit is payable only once during the term of the option or till age of 45 years whichever is earlier. The Premium payable for this option will also ceases.  
  5. Critical Illness benefit
