Government Insurance Schemes: The Central Government has increased the rates of annual insurance premium of Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY). Both these schemes are directly related to the welfare of the general public and they are operated through banks. In such a situation, the bank is now advising its customers to keep a minimum balance of Rs 456 by sending information about the increased premium rates.

Premium in PMJJBY increased to Rs 20

According to the report, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) provides financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh to the nominee in case of death due to any reason. In this, people of 18 to 50 years can apply. Till now the premium for this scheme was deducted at Rs 12 in a year but now it has been increased to Rs 20.

The annual premium of this plan was Rs 330 till now but it has been increased to Rs 436 now.
