Grace Period: Since it is a single payment plan, there is no Grace Period under the policy.
Surrender or Termination of Policy: The policyholder can surrender the plan after the completion of first five policy years. The policy terminates right after the fund value is paid out the policyholder. If the policyholder surrenders before the end of the initial five years, life coverage ceases, and the Fund Value is sent to the Discontinued Policy Fund. The policy will be terminated if it is not revived within the period allotted for revival. Moreover, as soon as the final benefits are paid out, the policy gets terminated.
