I think this is covered under 80CCC.

On maturity entire amount will be taxable.

The payment in  commutation of pension received is exempt u/s 10(10A). The pension received will however be taxable. In my view you should not opt premature closure as (a) you may lose on foreclosure penalty, if any and (b) you may lose tax saving on commutation of pension.

Dear Sir,

Yes, the amount withdrawn at the time of pre - closure is taxable. Plus penal charges may also be deducted by your Insurance Company.

So in my opinion it doesn't make sense going ahead with that option, unless you are in Urgent Need of Funds. 

Trust this clarifies your query.

Feel Free to get back for further clarifications.

Thanking You.
