After 1st April, 2012, when Direct tax code will be applicable, income tax deduction will be available for only those premium paid towards insurance policies where sum assured is at-least 20 times the annual premium paid.

The policy taken by you which has premium of 1 lakh and assured sum of 5 lakhs won't be beneficial for tax saving purposes.

Tax exemption will be there for insurance policies upto max Rs 50,000 (this has been added just for pure insurances)
