Sir, I purchased on line E TERM from LIC in Jul 2017, my premium was 23850 annually, this year they added GST @18% which is around 4300 more . I have GST number on my PAN , since I am running a proprietorship firm, can I claim this GST as input Credit in any form. I would also like to know if other private Insurance company also charge 18% GST on Term Plan? Please reply....

We don't have much information in this case, please consult some tax consultant. But, paid GST does not come under input tax credit, so it is not a case of refund. It will be something like your proprietary firm orders burger from McDonalds and pays bills along with GST and you want that paid GST to be return. Anyways please visit your tax consultant.
GST is levied by Government of India, so both private and government insurer (more broadly all service providers) charge GST to be deposited to GOI.

GST portion is not part of life insurance premium. For your reference, you may download consolidated premium payment receipt form your customer account, it indicates total premium .

Small savings and security insurace through LIC is for most of the common citizen of India, whereby they are not getting more profit than other small investments. GST Charges on premium is injustice against the policy holders It is discouraging the citizen for making their life insured. Why not every policy holders raise their voice against this tax.

You can simply add 4.5% for first policy year and 2.25% for subsequent years, for example, of you have already paid 12 monthly premiums then rate will be 2.25%.
