exercise the option for withdrawal; The Fund Value shall be payable to you. In
case, the option for withdrawal is exercised after five years from
commencement, there shall be no discontinuance charge because of such
withdrawal. However, if the withdrawal option is exercised before completion of
5 years from commencement, the Monetary Value (Fund Value less
discontinuance charges) will be kept in Discontinued Policy Fund. This amount
shall earn a minimum interest of 3.5% pa and will be payable only on
completion of 5 years from date of commencement.
