Today, you can obtain exemption from RPFC for maintaining the EDLI scheme instead with an insurance company.
In this case only the administration charges towards EDLI need to be paid to RPFC whereas the EDLI policy can be maintained as any insurance policy with the insurance company. The exemption requires that the EDLI policy so obtained be able to provide better benefits to the employees than is available under the EDLI scheme of RPFC.
Currently insurance companies like LIC, Met Life etc provide scheme of up to Rs.1 lakh with the additional provision of a Double Death Benefit rider which gives double coverage in the case of an accidental death.
EDLI maximum benefit Rs.60000/- in case of death then what will be the limit in case of Permanent disablement and with what amount because that employee is not covered under ESI as his salary is more than 10000/- and he wants to take benefit under PF.
If we have LIC group insurance than how much amount in case of death or disablement.
EDLI is the abbreviation of Employees' Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme. Here deposit means average deposit in EPF. When an employee dies while in service, family will get some compensation based on his/her deposit. To get the claim, the employer has to pay 0.5% as its premium.
1. Determination of Deposit.
Average of deposit of last twelve months as well as total service, will be calculated and whichever is less being taken for the calculation.
2. Determination of Compensation.
Upto Rs. 50,000/- he will get actual. Beyond first 50,000/- he will get 40% of the rest; subject to ceiling of Rs. 100,000/-.

But there is better Insurance schemes with the same premium, even without cosidering the deposits. With this type of better benefits, some of the organisations are exempted from EDLI. Instead they are providing in lieu of EDLI. There are schemes which specifies more than 100,000/- for natuaral death and double benefits for accidental death.
