Dear Senthil, Kindly note that LIC is a big player in Indian Insurance industry. Their reputation is good as a company. But, the important thing whether intermediaries (Agents) sell right products to their clients and/or whether the prospective investor/policy buyer buys right product as per his requirements... is a big question mark!! Unfortunately, there is a lot of mis-selling that happens in India. LIC New Jana Raksha plan is a traditional endowment insurance plan. The returns from these kind of plans can be in the range of 4 to 5%. May I know your age, salaried/self-employed, do you have dependents and/or have financial obligations? Do you have adequate life insurance cover through a Term life insurance plan?? Kindly read :

Dear Senthil, I believe that your utmost attention should now be given to your 'Insurance planning'. You are 'under-insured'. The investments can wait but you need to get adequate life insurance cover at the earliest. Do you and your family has adequate health insurance cover?? Suggest you to go through below articles which can give you some idea about the basic concepts of Financial planning;

Dear Senthil, I am not sure about Zerodha sub-broker model. If your objective is to buy investments (stocks etc) once in a while and hold for long-term, you may stick to big players like icicidirect, kotak securities, hdfc sec etc., the cost of brokerage can be high but their quality of service can be fantastic.
