  • The consideration under life insurance policy “X” will be exempt under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act for the previous year 2033-34 since the annual premium does not exceed Rs 5,00,000. 
  • The consideration received under life insurance policy “B” only will be exempt under clause (IOD) of section 10 of the Act during the previous year 2034-35 while consideration received under life insurance policies “A” and “C” will be taxable as per the provisions of seventh proviso.

  • Here instead of life insurance policy “B”, we could have taken life insurance policy “A” as the aggregate of annual premium payable for life insurance policies “X” and “A” is also less than Rs 5,00,000 during the term of these life insurance policies. However, since including life insurance policy “B” instead of life insurance policy

“A” is more beneficial to the assessee, life insurance policy “B” has been considered for exemption. 

Example 10:

Taxability as per seventh proviso to clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act:

• The consideration under life insurance policy “X” was not claimed to be exempt under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act by the assessee therefore it is not covered within the definition of old eligible life insurance policies. 

 • The consideration received under life insurance policies ” B ” and “e” will be exempt under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act. However, since aggregate of the annual premium payable for the life insurance policies “B” and “e” together did not exceed Rs 5,00,000 for any of the previous years during the term of any of these life insurance policies “B” or “e” and life insurance policy “X” was not claimed to be exempt under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act, the consideration received under life insurance policy “A” will be taxable as per the provisions of seventh proviso to the said clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act. It may again be stated that life insurance policies “B” and “e” are considered for exemption instead of combination of policies “A” and “B” or policies “A” and “C” as this combination (i.e. life insurance policies “B” and “C”) is more beneficial to the assessee. 

Example 11: 

The assessee has the following policies all of which satisfy all the conditions laid down in clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act (other than the conditions provided under the sixth and seventh proviso of the said clause, applicability whereof is being explained in the example).

 • The consideration received under life insurance policies “A”, “B” and “C” will be taxable under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act as per the provisions of seventh proviso to the said clause (I OD) since aggregate of the annual premium payable for the life insurance policies “X” and “Y” for the previous year 2023-24 to 2033-34 was Rs 4,00,000. If the annual premium of life insurance policies “A” or “B” or “C” is added then the aggregate of the premium will exceed Rs 5,00,000 for the previous year 2024-25 to 2033-34. 

• As per the provisions of seventh proviso, in case of mUltiple life insurance policies, the aggregate of the premium payable for all the policies which are claimed to be exempt under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act shall not exceed Rs 5,00,000 for any previous year during the term of any of those policies. 

Example 12:

 If in Example II, the assessee does not claim exemption with respect to the surrender value of life insurance policy “X”, then the consideration received under life insurance policy “Y” will be exempt for the previous year 2034-25 and the consideration received under life insurance policy “B” will be exempt for the previous year 2035-36 under clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act. The exemption is restricted to life insurance policy “B ” since the aggregate of the annual premium payable for the life insurance policies “Y” and “B” together did not exceed Rs 5,00,000 for any of the previous years during the term of life insurance policies “Y” or “B” and the assessee did not claim life insurance policy “X” as exempt. Life insurance policy “B” is preferred in place of life insurance policy “A” as it is more beneficial to the assessee. 

Example 13:

 The assessee has the following life insurance policies and unit linked insurance policies (ULIPs) all of which satisfY all the conditions laid down in clause (10D) of section 10 of the Act (other than the conditions provided under the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh provisos of the said clause, applicability whereof is being explained in the example).

• Further, the consideration received under the life insurance policy “A” during the previous year 2033-34 shall be exempt under clause (l0D) of section 10 of the Act and will become old eligible life insurance policy for which exemption has been claimed. Then, for the previous year 2034-35, the consideration for life insurance policy “C” only shall be exempt under clause (100) of section I a of the Act as the sum of premium of life insurance policies “A” and “C” does not exceed Rs 5,00,000 in any of the previous years during the term of these policies. The consideration for life insurance policy “B” is not exempt since sum of premium of life insurance policies “A”, “B ” and “C” exceeds Rs 5,00,000 during the term of these policies. Life insurance policy “C” is preferred over life insurance policy “B” being more beneficial to the assessee.

However, if the consideration from life insurance policy “A” was not claimed as exempt in previous year 2033-34, then the consideration from both the life insurance policies “B” and “e” shall be exempt under clause (IOD) of section 10 of the Act.
