(i) The Policy is arranged to provide Assurance benefits to the employees with a minimum of Rs. 1,32,000 as.the product minimum is Rs. 1,32,000.
(ii) All members of the Employees' Provident Funds Scheme, 1952 in the company will be eligible to be members of the policy. The member becomes eligible for the coverage as soon as he/she becomes the member of the Employees' Provident Funds Scheme, 1952.
(iii) No member shall withdraw from the Scheme as long as he satisfies the conditions of eligibility described above.
(iv) The employer (policy holder) will give an undertaking to the effect that all new members have been included from the date of their joining.

(b) That the employer has enrolled all eligible members and has also given an undertaking to that effect.
