They have their difference and some might argue that we are comparing apples and oranges. My argument is, they are really not that different. Both invest in capital markets and both provide an insurance options. Reliance wanted to capture the ULIP market and is luring the investors with the insurance options. Except for the 80C option I really do not see a reason why investors would flock for ULIP’s.
