Things to keep in mind while Buying A Health Insurance Plan

While claiming money from insurance companies during hospitalization, you’ll hear reasons like:

  • This is not covered
  • Or better still this is covered only after ‘x’ years
  • You have overspent; your eligibility was only this – so that’s all you’ll get. (Nobody in the world can understand that calculation)

Premium – This is what you pay
A premium is the “fee” you pay to remain covered in your insurance plan.
Normally, good things don’t come cheap. The cheapest available plan may not be the best one for you or your family. Always look at the premium in return for the benefits or the coverage you get.


Sum Assured – The max you can get
Sum Assured is a fairly simple concept, once understood. As the words suggest it means the maximum the insurance company will pay under all possible heads in case of hospitalization. The heads range from treatment, procedure, or surgery expenses, to room charges at the hospital, to
follow-up treatment after discharge from hospital, ambulance charges etc.


No Claim Bonus – Ensure you get your freebie
Think of no claim bonus as a gift for being a good kid. You don’t do anything bad and still, get a gift. So, you don’t get unwell and don’t claim, you get discounts on your premium or a free increase in cover. This is calculated every year. Every year that you don’t claim, you get a discount ranging from 5% to 50%. Some companies now double your cover in approximately 2-3 years. Medical inflation in India is about 15%. So roughly the cost doubles 4-5 years. A free increase in cover is priceless.


Waiting period & Exclusions – Insurance Company says ‘Don’t cheat us’.
Another important aspect to remember is that none of the health insurance plans ‘start immediately after’ you buy them. This means that all companies make you wait for a defined period of time before you are eligible to claim. This is called the “waiting period”. The waiting period is of various types-

  • In the initial waiting period, which is the first 30 days, you remain out of cover in spite of buying the policy, except in the case of hospitalization due to accidents. You can’t fall ill, then buy and then claim. This so that people don’t game the system.
  • Exclusion waiting period- Once your cover becomes active, certain procedures or disorders are not covered for a specified period of time- usually 2-3 years. A few of them are cataracts, fibroids, appendix removal, hernia removal, etc. This is for conditions that probably do not require immediate attention and can be lurking for years before you treat them. So, the waiting period clause is to defend the Insurance Company from fraudsters. This waiting period can be as high as 4 years for conditions that already exist (pre-existing conditions) before buying an insurance plan.

So, if you have suffered from any of these or have a family history – check what is not covered and for how long. Don’t assume or ignore, it might bite you.

What is Term Insurance?


Term insurance is a pure protection insurance plan which provides cover for a specified period of time. Term insurance plans are the least expensive of all the life insurance products when compared against the sum assured offered by them. It is advisable to evaluate your requirements before
selecting the right term insurance plan for yourself.


A term insurance plan is the best gift you can give to your loved ones. A term insurance plan will provide financial protection in case of your unfortunate demise. There are many insurance companies operating their business in India that offer different types of term plans.

Here are the 4 basic types of term insurance plans:

What you should know about Scams in Instant loan Apps?

Credits: witn

Recently RBI issued notice to some digital lending platforms for harassing borrowers for small loans that they availed through them which includes blackmailing by using their personal information that lenders collected while processing their loans and charging hidden cost which was not disclosed earlier.

Usually, these apps promise to provide instant funds without much due diligence and in hassle-free experience and individuals /businessmen fall prey to such offers owing to fact that the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted their businesses and most of them are in deep financial stress thus making them most vulnerable to these Scams which are floating around. In today article we’ll be talking about the Recent RBI action on these fishy loan apps and how you can protect yourself from these lenses whose sole objective is to defraud customers

What is going around?

Before discussing what exactly is happening nowadays we’ll understand how exactly an Instant loan app works.

Let’s say Mr. Rahul is in desperate need of Funds and due to a bad CIBIL score, no bank/Nbfc is ready to give him a loan considering this. So Rahul applies to a personal loan app that promises to give funds within 10 minutes by collecting very basic data like personal information, KYC documents like Aadhaar card, pan card and ask him to click a selfie for verification alongside they’ll take access of his gallery, contacts and certain apps. Now after giving all documents and giving access the app processes the loan and Rahul receives the funds and he’s a happy lad now. But unaware of high-interest charges, an additional cost that will be levied upon him, and mental stress that he’ll put through.

What the issue then?

Assuming he repaid the full loan that too with interest things are good but problems start when Rahul defaults on his repayment and harassment starts from here onwards. The lenders start sending fake and morphed notices to the borrowers and blackmail them. In some cases, WhatsApp groups were created along with contacts of the borrower and they started abusive behaviour, labelling them as “fraudsters”.

 The lenders make sure that the defaulter is pressurized and stressed at that level where he has no option but to pay the whole loan amount along with the interest rate determined by them. Since most of these digital lenders are working outside the regulator’s ambit thus Rahul cannot seek any legal help thus resorting him the only option to repay the amount. We’ve seen cases where the borrowers have committed suicide due to constant blackmailing and threat. Most of these entities have an only online presence are mostly operated from China, Indonesia, and Singapore.

How you can protect yourself from these cybercriminals and fake loan apps?

I’m pretty much sure that now you’ll are aware of how these apps are defrauding customers and what is their modus operandi. So to make sure you do not fall prey to these apps I’ve jotted down few points

  1. Never avail loan from any app which does not scrutiny your financial background and credit history

In this entire business model, the entire risk is borne by lenders since he’s giving funds from his own end so in cases where lenders aren’t concerned about your credit score and financial status is a red flag and you should immediately report this app.

  • Where interest charges are not disclosed

In cases where the app does not disclose the full cost and interest charges levied on your loan amount then you should Never opt for such a facility since you can be charged with a floating rate of interest and you probably can’t do anything later on.

  • When the App sources cannot be determined and are operating outside Indian Jurisdiction

Imagine getting a facility from a business that cannot be sued and has no physical presence in your country. This deprives you of any rights if you want to go for a legal route in case you want to file a case against them.

  • Online Reviews

While buying anything online we start reading online reviews for it one month prior to the ordering date since we’ve to pay our hard-earned money for purchasing it on the other hand if we talk about loan app we are very careless and opt for anything that we come across since we’re getting money but we forgot that this has to be repaid that too with interest. So make sure whenever you start applying through loan apps for personal loans you are well aware of it.

Conclusion

With loans available faster than Maggi one should be very careful and proactive while taking personal loans from online apps and incase you’re defrauded by such cyber criminals you should report them to your nearest cyber cell.

“A Credit card is nothing but a little plastic card having a magnetic strip, issued by a bank or business authorizing the holder to buy goods or services on credit. It gives customers a pre-set credit limit which he can use to pay for their purchases without having to pay in cash or issuing a cheque. Instead of giving you the full loan in cash, the bank lets you take as much of the credit limit as you want at a given time. This limit varies from borrower to borrower and is influenced by financial status”

Now to decide which credit card is best for you we’ll look on to different parameters so as to come to a decision.

  1. Your spending habits and lifestyle

In order to attract more customers banks usually offer zero processing charges, joining fees . But keep in mind the more luxury and benefits the card offers the more charges you need to incur.

  • Credit limit

The credit limit is nothing but the amount that your banks allow you to withdraw as a loan or this is the amount of money that the credit card issuer is willing to let you borrow. Depending on your credit history and credit score this can vary a lot. But make sure you never over withdraw the prescribed limit since it attracts penalty and can have a bad effect on your credit score.

Loan products for Gig-workers in India

Source: Personnel Today

Post the digital revolution in India back in 2016 the Indian economy witnessed several unicorn digital startups flooding the market of over 1.3 billion people. Every business whether Ed-tech, personal Lending, transportation, food delivery has seen startups taking unprecedented growth and thus providing good traction to India’s gig Economy.

The platform economy has particularly attracted a high number of unskilled and less-educated workers as it provides them with a good source of earning their livelihoods or maybe provide them ease in accessing part-time services to fulfil essential needs by doing tasks that don’t require much qualification. Riding on two-wheelers delivering your favorite cuisines without any delay or working tirelessly to make sure you get the delivery of latest smartphone that you ordered from E-commerce platform these young people make sure wheels of growth are never off track but are gig workers saving enough so that during the times like these they are managing two meals a day or if not are they able to take a loan from Banks without any delay as banks might be not ready to lend to them very easily owing to the fact that the income in freelancing is inconsistent.

In today’s article, we’ll be talking about gig workers and how they can apply for a personal loan. So let’s begin

Who are the Gig-workers?

Source Medium

In India, there are about 3 million gig workers — temporary workers including independent contractors, online platform workers, contract firm workers, and on-call workers. With rising unemployment in the Organized sector, it’s good to see that more than 56% of new jobs are created by the gig ecosystem.

As per the latest survey conducted by economic times over 40% of the respondents have only studied till 10th grade and did not attend college which largely makes them unemployable for a white-collar job. The work is job-specific and they are expected to perform a fixed task and they’re paid accordingly, workers have the flexibility to work for more than one contractor and choose the hours of work.

The survey reveals that a good majority of 40% earn above Rs 10,000 and 35% of respondents earn close to Rs 10,000 per week to earn their living. Post pandemic more than a third of gig workers were making about Rs 173.5 per day or less which quite less compared to the task they perform on daily basis.

From where do Gig workers borrow?

As I earlier mentioned most Financial institutions are not willing to lend to gig workers due to various reasons like inconsistent income, low CIBIL score, and a lot more. As per the survey, about 40% of customers have a CIBIL Score between 300 and 400, and among them, nearly 20% are not aware of what a CIBIL score is.

An article by Economic times reveals that “Thirty per cent of respondents have taken a loan before and 30% had not taken a loan, almost 20% relied on friends and family for credit and close to 8% have used money lenders in the past. Survey highlights 10% respondents asked their current employer for a loan”

While most of the borrowers do not have earlier access to credit and good credit-worthiness the role of new Emerging digital lending platforms comes into play which usually involves small ticket size loans ranging from ₹10000-₹200000. The new-age lenders usually operate in the unsecured lending space, where lenders give loans to borrowers without any security. These models, which use statistical data and ML-based technology are based on various parameters like past credit history, recent Emi, and credit defaults which helps in increasing the accuracy in predicting the future behaviour of the borrowers.

But the harsh reality less than 10% of the total workforce is updated in regards to the existence of these platforms and are mostly dependent on informal and unorganized sources of Financing. Since commercial banks and NBFCs do not lend as they are not recognized as full-time and formal employees also do not have fixed salaries they get in real trouble in times of emergency.

To Make availing credit a hassle-free and smooth experience MoneyLoji provides the platform from where they can borrow funds for a short period of time and that too with the lowest interest charges in the whole market. The workers need to download the android application and fill in the basic details like name, Address proof, current employment status, amount of funds required, duration them and within 5 minutes the funds get transferred to workers’ bank Account.

Not only does MoneyLoji make it possible for gig workers to access fund easily without the need for documentation like bank account details CIBIL score but they also do so at rates lower than market alternatives and offers assistance in maintaining good credit score.

Conclusion India’s e-commerce market is expected to grow to $200 billion by 2026 and gig workers play an important role in sustaining the growth. More than 70% of them have shown interest in Personal loans and to make sure the life of workers which makes our life convenient  MoneyLoji has made the process of availing credit affordable and accessible.

Can Investing make you a millionaire?

“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die”

Remember in childhood we wondered like “Does money grows on a Money plant”? Well I’m pretty much sure this sounds stupid but fairly speaking we all believed in this and then we grew up and realized it was complete foolishness. But wait there’s another fortune and trust me it’s practical and not some fantasy magic wand and most of us probably don’t know much about it.

No I’m not saying that’s bad idea but I they are illiquid Assets i.e you can’t encash them in need and requires a huge Investment to earn decent returns.

  1. Compounding

Everyone has Heard a golden statement from a genius Mind Albert Einstein “Compounding is the Eighth Wonder of the World One who knows it Earns it and who doesn’t pay it”. It’s very well true earning money on the money already earned and creating wealth over time.


Do you want to be Ajay or Vijay? Well, you’re guessing right my friend!!

  • Beat Inflation

Year 2019 1 litre full Cream Milk =₹50.          Year 2020 1 litre full Cream Milk =₹52.

You see the difference in the price of the same items changed over a course of 1 year it’s due to inflation. Generally, the inflation rate in the Indian Economy is 5%. So you would lose 4 to5% of our money every year if kept as cash. Returns from investing help you to maintain the purchasing power at a constant level. If you don’t beat the inflation rate you’d be losing money, not making money.

You see that if you had ₹100 bucks in 2010 the things that you can buy in 2021.

Okay I understand it didn’t make much sense so let me make you clear this way

“Instead of giving you the full loan in cash, the bank lets you take as much of the credit limit as you want at a given time. This limit vary borrower to borrower and influenced by financial status. Now As you pay off what you’ve borrowed, you can borrow again”
