A policy lapses when premium is not paid even after the grace period. Generally the grace period is thirty days from the first unpaid premium. A lapsed policy generally ceases to get the insurance coverage. Policy can be brought back to live condition by paying the premium along with the interest.
But if the policy remains lapsed for more than six months from the due date, it has to be revived. Revival requires submission of Declaration of Good Health (DGH) along with premium and interest.
A lapsed policy will not help the unfortunate family to tide over the difficult situation. Hence all efforts should be taken to see that all your insurance policies are fully in force all the time.

Let us see the revival methods available to revive a lapsed policy in LIC
All the premium dues and the interest accrued on the unpaid premium till the date of revival has to be paid as a single lump sum payment. A Declaration of Good Health and Identity proof has to be submitted along with the revival application.
This is a special type of revival method applicable to policies with premium paid period less than three years and where lapsation period is not more than two years. Date of commencement is shifted in such a manner that premium dues need not be paid. The Maturity date of the policy also will be shifted accordingly. This method of revival is suitable for customers who are unable to pay the dues and interest but want to continue the policy.
Under Instalment Revival the premium dues are paid as equal instalments along with the interest as if we are paying Equated Monthly Instalments (EMI)
SB Cum Revival(Survival Benefit Cum revival)
This type of revival method is applicable to money back policies where survival benefit payable is adjusted towards the premium dues and interest to be paid.
Loan Cum Revival
Here a loan is raised from the policy after considering that all the premium is paid up to date and available loan after this consideration is used to pay the premium and interest dues.
