Lic not giving amulaya jeena term plan

I had applied for Amulaya Jeevan (25 Lakhs, 35 years) for myself. It has been over 2 months since I approached the LIC agent for the submitting my application for the plan.

The medical tests (by LIC appointed hospital) are done and the reports are also fine. Initially one cheque (1000 was submitted to LIC before medical test). Later on after the medical reports came I was asked to submit the remaining Rs 7600 for my policy. Both cheques have been credited to the LIC account. I was told that I would be getting the policy document within two days.

But after waiting for the policy bond for a month I was told that the LIC can only provide cover of 10 lakhs for me under a different plan called Anmol Jeevan whose term is only 25 years. And the excuse they are giving is that they are getting many death claims so the LIC SDM is not approving any new Amulaya Jeevan term plans.

But they are not responding to my emails.They Only replied telephonically.

Is LIC bound to give me the reason for not giving the Amulaya Jeevan Plan. Is LIC justified to change their decision of not giving me the Amulaya jeevan plan even when I am eligible for it.
