CHAPTER-1
INRODUCTION
INSURANCE COMPANIES IN INDIA

In India, Insurance is a national matter, in which life and general insurance is yet a
booming sector with huge possibilities for different global companies, as life
insurance premiums account to 2.5% and general insurance premiums account to
0.65% of India's GDP. The Indian Insurance sector has gone through several phases
and changes, especially after 1999, when the Govt. of India opened up the insurance
sector for private companies to solicit insurance by passing Insurance Regulatory and
Development Authority (IRDA) Bill, allowing FDI up to 26%. Since then, the
Insurance sector in India is considered as a flourishing market amongst global
insurance companies. However, the largest life insurance company in India is still
owned by the government.

The history of Insurance in India dates back to 1818, when Oriental Life Insurance
Company was established by Europeans in Kolkata to cater to their requirements.
Nevertheless, there was discrimination among the life of foreigners and Indians, as
higher premiums were charged from the latter. In 1870, Indians took a sigh of relief
when Bombay Mutual Life Assurance Society, the first Indian insurance company
covered Indian lives at normal rates. Onset of the 20th century brought a drastic
change in the Insurance sector.

In 1912, the Govt. of India passed two acts - the Life Insurance Companies Act, and
the Provident Fund Act - to regulate the insurance business. National Insurance
Company Ltd, founded in 1906, is the oldest existing insurance company in India.
Earlier, the Insurance sector had only two state insurers - Life Insurers i.e. Life
Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), and General Insurers i.e. General Insurance
Corporation of India (GIC). In December 2000, these subsidiaries were de-linked
from parent company and were declared independent insurance companies: Oriental
Insurance Company Limited, New India Assurance Company Limited, National
Insurance Company Limited and United India Insurance Company Limited.

With an annual growth rate of 15-20% and the largest number of life insurance
policies in force, the potential of the Indian insurance industry is huge. Total value of
the Indian insurance market (2004-05) is estimated at Rs. 450 billion (US$10 billion).
The life insurance industry in India grew by an impressive 36%, with premium
income from new business at Rs. 253.43 billion during the fiscal year 2004-2005,
braving stiff competition from private insurers. This report, "Indian Insurance
Industry: New Avenues for Growth 2012", finds that the market share of the state
behemoth, LIC, has clocked 21.87% growth in business at Rs.197.86 billion by
selling 2.4 billion new policies in 2004-05. But this was still not enough to arrest the
fall in its market share, as private players grew by 129% to mop up Rs. 55.57 billion
in 2004-05 from Rs. 24.29 billion in 2003-04.

Though the total volume of LIC's business increased in the fiscal year (2004-2005)
compared to the previous one, its market share came down from 87.04 to 78.07%.
The 14 private insurers increased their market share from about 13% to about 22% in
a year's time. The figures for the first two months of the fiscal year 2005-06 also
speak of the growing share of the private insurers. The share of LIC for this period
has further come down to 75 percent, while the private players have grabbed over 24
percent.

There are presently 12 general insurance companies with four public sector
companies and eight private insurers and private insurance companies collectively
have a 10% share of the non-life insurance market.
CHAPTER-2

COMPANY PROFILE
COMPANY PROFILE

The story of insurance is probably as old as the story of mankind. The same instinct
that prompts modern businessmen today to secure themselves against loss and
disaster existed in primitive men also. They too sought to avert the evil consequences
of fire and flood and loss of life and were willing to make some sort of sacrifice in
order to achieve security. Though the concept of insurance is largely a development
of the recent past, particularly after the industrial era – past few centuries – yet its
beginnings date back almost 6000 years.

Life Insurance in its modern form came to India from England in the year 1818.
Oriental Life Insurance Company started by Europeans in Calcutta was the first life
insurance company on Indian Soil. All the insurance companies established during
that period were brought up with the purpose of looking after the needs of European
community and Indian natives were not being insured by these companies. However,
later with the efforts of eminent people like Babu Muttylal Seal, the foreign life
insurance companies started insuring Indian lives. But Indian lives were being treated
as sub-standard lives and heavy extra premiums were being charged on them.
Bombay Mutual Life Assurance Society heralded the birth of first Indian life
insurance company in the year 1870, and covered Indian lives at normal rates.
Starting as Indian enterprise with highly patriotic motives, insurance companies came
into existence to carry the message of insurance and social security through insurance
to various sectors of society. Bharat Insurance Company (1896) was also one of such
companies inspired by nationalism. The Swadeshi movement of 1905-1907 gave rise
to more insurance companies. The United India in Madras, National Indian and
National Insurance in Calcutta and the Co-operative Assurance at Lahore were
established in 1906. In 1907, Hindustan Co-operative Insurance Company took its
birth in one of the rooms of the Jorasanko, house of the great poet Rabindranath
Tagore, in Calcutta. The Indian Mercantile, General Assurance and Swadeshi Life
(later Bombay Life) were some of the companies established during the same period.
Prior to 1912 India had no legislation to regulate insurance business. In the year 1912,
the Life Insurance Companies Act, and the Provident Fund Act were passed. The Life
Insurance Companies Act, 1912 made it necessary that the premium rate tables and
periodical valuations of companies should be certified by an actuary. But the Act
discriminated between foreign and Indian companies on many accounts, putting the
Indian companies at a disadvantage.

The first two decades of the twentieth century saw lot of growth in insurance
business. From 44 companies with total business-in-force as Rs.22.44 crore, it rose to
176 companies with total business-in-force as Rs.298 crore in 1938. During the
mushrooming of insurance companies many financially unsound concerns were also
floated which failed miserably. The Insurance Act 1938 was the first legislation
governing not only life insurance but also non-life insurance to provide strict state
control over insurance business. The demand for nationalization of life insurance
industry was made repeatedly in the past but it gathered momentum in 1944 when a
bill to amend the Life Insurance Act 1938 was introduced in the Legislative
Assembly. However, it was much later on the 19th of January, 1956, that life
insurance in India was nationalized. About 154 Indian insurance companies, 16 non-
Indian companies and 75 provident were operating in India at the time of
nationalization. Nationalization was accomplished in two stages; initially the
management of the companies was taken over by means of an Ordinance, and later,
the ownership too by means of a comprehensive bill. The Parliament of India passed
the Life Insurance Corporation Act on the 19th of June 1956, and the Life Insurance
Corporation of India was created on 1st September, 1956, with the objective of
spreading life insurance much more widely and in particular to the rural areas with a
view to reach all insurable persons in the country, providing them adequate financial
cover at a reasonable cost.

LIC had 5 zonal offices, 33 divisional offices and 212 branch offices, apart from its
corporate office in the year 1956. Since life insurance contracts are long term
contracts and during the currency of the policy it requires a variety of services need
was felt in the later years to expand the operations and place a branch office at each
district headquarter. Re-organization of LIC took place and large numbers of new
branch offices were opened. As a result of re-organization servicing functions were
transferred to the branches, and branches were made accounting units. It worked
wonders with the performance of the corporation. It may be seen that from about
200.00 crores of New Business in 1957 the corporation crossed 1000.00 crores only
in the year 1969-70, and it took another 10 years for LIC to cross 2000.00 crore mark
of new business. But with re-organization happening in the early eighties, by 1985-86
LIC had already crossed 7000.00 crore Sum Assured on new policies.

Today LIC functions with 2048 fully computerized branch offices, 100 divisional
offices, 7 zonal offices and the corporate office. LIC’s Wide Area Network covers
100 divisional offices and connects all the branches through a Metro Area Network.
LIC has tied up with some Banks and Service providers to offer on-line premium
collection facility in selected cities. LIC’s ECS and ATM premium payment facility
is an addition to customer convenience. Apart from on-line Kiosks and IVRS, Info
Centers have been commissioned at Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai,
Hyderabad, Kolkata, New Delhi, Pune and many other cities. With a vision of
providing easy access to its policyholders, LIC has launched its SATELLITE
SAMPARK offices. The satellite offices are smaller, leaner and closer to the
customer. The digitalized records of the satellite offices will facilitate anywhere
servicing and many other conveniences in the future.

LIC continues to be the dominant life insurer even in the liberalized scenario of
Indian insurance and is moving fast on a new growth trajectory surpassing its own
past records. LIC has issued over one crore policies during the current year. It has
crossed the milestone of issuing 1,01,32,955 new policies by 15th Oct, 2005, posting
a healthy growth rate of 16.67% over the corresponding period of the previous year.

From then to now, LIC has crossed many milestones and has set unprecedented
performance records in various aspects of life insurance business. The same motives
which inspired our forefathers to bring insurance into existence in this country inspire
us at LIC to take this message of protection to light the lamps of security in as many
homes as possible and to help the people in providing security to their families.

Some of the important milestones in the life insurance business in India are:

1818: Oriental Life Insurance Company, the first life insurance company on Indian
soil started functioning.

1870: Bombay Mutual Life Assurance Society, the first Indian life insurance
company started its business.
1912: The Indian Life Assurance Companies Act enacted as the first statute to
regulate the life insurance business.

1928: The Indian Insurance Companies Act enacted to enable the government to
collect statistical information about both life and non-life insurance businesses.

1938: Earlier legislation consolidated and amended to by the Insurance Act with the
objective of protecting the interests of the insuring public.

1956: 245 Indian and foreign insurers and provident societies are taken over by the
central government and nationalized. LIC formed by an Act of Parliament, viz. LIC
Act, 1956, with a capital contribution of Rs. 5 crore from the Government of India.

The General insurance business in India, on the other hand, can trace its roots to the
Triton Insurance Company Ltd., the first general insurance company established in
the year 1850 in Calcutta by the British.

Some of the important milestones in the general insurance business in India are:

1907: The Indian Mercantile Insurance Ltd. set up, the first company to transact all
classes of general insurance business.

1957: General Insurance Council, a wing of the Insurance Association of India,


frames a code of conduct for ensuring fair conduct and sound business practices.

1968: The Insurance Act amended to regulate investments and set minimum solvency
margins and the Tariff Advisory Committee set up.

1972: The General Insurance Business (Nationalization) Act, 1972 nationalized the
general insurance business in India with effect from 1st January 1973.

107 insurers amalgamated and grouped into four companies’ viz. the National
Insurance Company Ltd., the New India Assurance Company Ltd., the Oriental
Insurance Company Ltd. and the United India Insurance Company Ltd. GIC
incorporated as a company.

WHAT IS LIFE INSURANCE?

Life insurance is a contract that pledges payment of an amount to the person assured
(or his nominee) on the happening of the event insured against.
The contract is valid for payment of the insured amount during:

• The date of maturity, or


• Specified dates at periodic intervals, or
• Unfortunate death, if it occurs earlier.

Among other things, the contract also provides for the payment of premium
periodically to the Corporation by the policyholder. Life insurance is universally
acknowledged to be an institution, which eliminates 'risk', substituting certainty for
uncertainty and comes to the timely aid of the family in the unfortunate event of death
of the breadwinner.
By and large, life insurance is civilization’s partial solution to the problems caused by
death. Life insurance, in short, is concerned with two hazards that stand across the
life-path of every person:

1. That of dying prematurely leaves a dependent family to fend for itself.


2. That of living till old age without visible means of support.

Life Insurance Vs. Other Savings

Contract of Insurance:
A contract of insurance is a contract of utmost good faith technically known as
uberrima fides. The doctrine of disclosing all material facts is embodied in this
important principle, which applies to all forms of insurance.
At the time of taking a policy, policyholder should ensure that all questions in the
proposal form are correctly answered. Any misrepresentation, non-disclosure or fraud
in any document leading to the acceptance of the risk would render the insurance
contract null and void.
Protection:
Savings through life insurance guarantee full protection against risk of death of the
saver. Also, in case of demise, life insurance assures payment of the entire amount
assured (with bonuses wherever applicable) whereas in other savings schemes, only
the amount saved (with interest) is payable.

Aid to Thrift:
Life insurance encourages 'thrift'. It allows long-term savings since payments can be
made effortlessly because of the 'easy installment' facility built into the scheme.
(Premium payment for insurance is either monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly).
For example: The Salary Saving Scheme popularly known as SSS provides a
convenient method of paying premium each month by deduction from one's salary. In
this case the employer directly pays the deducted premium to LIC. The Salary Saving
Scheme is ideal for any institution or establishment subject to specified terms and
conditions.
Liquidity:
In case of insurance, it is easy to acquire loans on the sole security of any policy that
has acquired loan value. Besides, a life insurance policy is also generally accepted as
security, even for a commercial loan.

Tax Relief:
Life Insurance is the best way to enjoy tax deductions on income tax and wealth tax.
This is available for amounts paid by way of premium for life insurance subject to
income tax rates in force.
Assesses can also avail of provisions in the law for tax relief. In such cases the
assured in effect pays a lower premium for insurance than otherwise.

Money When You Need It:


A policy that has a suitable insurance plan or a combination of different plans can be
effectively used to meet certain monetary needs that may arise from time-to-time.
Children's education, start-in-life or marriage provision or even periodical needs for
cash over a stretch of time can be less stressful with the help of these policies.
Alternatively, policy money can be made available at the time of one's retirement
from service and used for any specific purpose, such as, purchase of a house or for
other investments. Also, loans are granted to policyholders for house building or for
purchase of flats (subject to certain conditions).

Who Can Buy A Policy?


Any person who has attained majority and is eligible to enter into a valid contract can
insure himself/herself and those in whom he/she has insurable interest.
Policies can also be taken, subject to certain conditions, on the life of one's spouse or
children. While underwriting proposals, certain factors such as the policyholder’s
state of health, the proponent's income and other relevant factors are considered by
the Corporation.

Insurance For Women


Prior to nationalization (1956), many private insurance companies would offer
insurance to female lives with some extra premium or on restrictive conditions.
However, after nationalization of life insurance, the terms under which life insurance
is granted to female lives have been reviewed from time-to-time.
At present, women who work and earn an income are treated at par with men. In
other cases, a restrictive clause is imposed, only if the age of the female is up to 30
years and if she does not have an income attracting Income Tax.

Medical And Non-Medical Schemes


Life insurance is normally offered after a medical examination of the life to be
assured. However, to facilitate greater spread of insurance and also to avoid
inconvenience, LIC has been extending insurance cover without any medical
examination, subject to certain conditions.

With Profit And Without Profit Plans


An insurance policy can be 'with' or 'without' profit. In the former, bonuses disclosed,
if any, after periodical valuations are allotted to the policy and are payable along with
the contracted amount.
In 'without' profit plan the contracted amount is paid without any addition. The
premium rate charged for a 'with' profit policy is therefore higher than for a 'without'
profit policy.

Keyman Insurance
Keyman insurance is taken by a business firm on the life of key employee(s) to
protect the firm against financial losses, which may occur due to the premature
demise of the Keyman.
OBJECTIVES OF LIC

• Spread Life Insurance widely and in particular to the rural areas and to the
socially and economically backward classes with a view to reaching all insurable
persons in the country and providing them adequate financial cover against death at a
reasonable cost.

• Maximize mobilization of people's savings by making insurance-linked


savings adequately attractive.

obligations of attractive return.

• Conduct business with utmost economy and with the full realization that the
moneys belong to the policyholders.

• Act as trustees of the insured public in their individual and collective


capacities.

on death due to accident up to age 70 of life assured. In case of permanent disability
of the life assured due to accident this additional Sum assured is payable in
installments.
Supplementary/Extra Benefits:
These are the optional benefits that can be added to your basic plan for extra
protection/option. An additional premium is required to be paid for these benefits.
Surrender Value:
Buying a life insurance contract is a long-term commitment. However, surrender
values are available on the plan on earlier termination of the contract.
Guaranteed Surrender Value:
The policy may be surrendered after it has been in force for 3 years or more. The
guaranteed surrender value is 30% of the basic premiums paid excluding the first
year’s premium. Any extra premium(s) paid and premium(s) towards Accident
Benefit are also excluded.
Corporation’s policy on surrenders:
In practice, the Corporation will pay a Special Surrender Value – which is either
equal to or more than the Guaranteed Surrender Value. The benefit payable on
surrender reflects the discounted value of the reduced claim amount that would be
payable on death or at maturity. This value will depend on the duration for which
premiums have been paid and the policy duration at the date of surrender. In some
circumstances, in case of early termination of the policy, the surrender value payable
may be less than the total premium paid.

The guaranteed surrender value is available only after completion of at least one
policy year. This value is equal to 90 % of the single premium paid (excluding extra
premium).
What other benefits does this insurance cover offer?
Bima Bachat is the only money-back policy that offers a loan facility. The rate of
interest for this will be determined from time to time by the corporation. Presently the
rate of interest is 9% p.a. payable half-yearly.

What incentives do I get for a higher sum assured?


Let’s take an example of a 30 year old with a Bima Bachat policy for 12 years. If the
sum assured is Rs 45,000 then he has to pay a premium of Rs 34800.75. But for a
sum assured amount of Rs 50,000 he will have to pay a premium of Rs 36734.13
only, thus getting a 5% rebate in premium.

UNIT PLANS-I

1. Market plus-I

This is a unit linked pension plan wherein the pension is payable after a specified
period. Four types of investment Funds namely Bond, Secured, Balanced and
Growth Fund are offered. Though primarily a Pension product, the plan has many
attractive features and options which make it an ideal Retirement solution for the
future.

BENEFITS
