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.

Eg. b) Deposit Rs. 200,000
For 1st 50000 - 50000, Next 150,000 - 60000
Total - Rs. 110000 (will get Rs.100,000 only as it ecxeeds 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.
Accordingly the difference cited above may be , in EDLI it depends on deposit; but in Insurance it is not linked with deposit.
