Prime Minister Insurance Insurance Scheme: The Prime Minister’s Protection Bami Yojana provides accident insurance to the poorer sections of the society. In this scheme, you have to deposit only Rs. 12 per month and in case of an accident you get a claim of up to Rs. 200,000. Under this government scheme, in case of death or disability of the insured in an accident, the sum insured is charged. However, this plan is for one year only. We have to register again in the new year.

Anyone between the ages of 18 and 70 who has a savings account in any bank can apply under this scheme. In the event of death or disability due to an accident, a claim may be sought under this scheme. Also, in case of suicide, no money is given to the family. At the same time, the sum insured is charged even if the insured dies, but there is no claim of partial disability due to the accident.
