Health Insurance: Aditi's employment benefit provides R5 lakh cover for her and Soham, Malav's employer benefit includes R5 lakh cover for him and his mother. For his mother a premium of R1,000 per annum is deducted by his employer from his salary. The health insurance is slightly on the lower side. With health expenses going up, the existing amount looks insufficient, especially for Malav's mother.
