1. Yes - it will be perquisites for a director who gets remuneration. From other Directors , this LIP payment to be recovered immdly

2. No, it's not an allowable deduction for company

3. Yes, Director can claim LIP amount under 80C individually

4. Accounting entry will be that of payment and recovery of LIP amounts. (For Remuneration paid director, LIP payment will go to Salary A/c.)

If it is normal LIP,
1. It will be treated as perquisite in the hands of the employee and it will form part of employee salary and TDS will be deducted on the same. 
2. It will not be allowed as a deduction in the company's hands. 
3. Directors cannot claim the deduction as sec 80C specifically says "it should have paid by the assessee" 
4. Director's Perquisite ( as per convenient) A/c.......Dr 
To Bank A/s 
If it is in the nature of Keyman Insurance Policy, 
1. It will not be treated as a perquisite as no benefit is available to the employee in the above policy. 
2. Yes, the policy is directly in relation to the company's future and it will be allowed as deductions. 
3. Director cannot claim the deduction even in this case as it is a policy relating to the company and director have no relation to the same.
4. Keyman Insurance Premium A/c...... Dr
To Bank A/c 
Please correct me if the above solution has an alternative view.

In my opinion, In case of keyman insurance policy, The premium paid should be shown in asset side of the balance sheet and in case the maturity amount is received the same should be nullified by the reversal entry of premium paid and the excess of maturity above the premium amount should be considered as income of the company.
