WHAT IS INSURANCE? Insurance is not necessarily an investment from which one expects to get ones back. Nor it is gambling a gambler takes risks. While insurance offers protection against risks that already exist “Insurance is a way to share risk with others”.

The Origin of Insurance Insurance has existed for thousand of years a form of credit insurance was included in the Code of Hammurabi, a collection of Babylonian laws said to predate the Law of mosses for finance their trading expeditions in ancient times. Ship owners obtained loans from investors, if a ship was lost the owners were not responsible for paying back the loans since many ship returned safely. The interest paid by numerous ship owners’ ship owners covered the risk to the lenders. It was likewise in a maritime setting that later one of the world’s most famous insurance providers. Lloyd’s of London was born By 1688, Edward famous insurance provider accepts in exchange for certain payment, to premium. These insurers came to be known as underwriters. Finally in 1769 Lloyd’s became a formal group of underwriters that in time grew into the foremost market for marine risks.

What if I already have Life Insurance ? As an individual for the extent of financial protection you need is from that a married man which in turn is different from that as a parent. At each life stage, it is necessary to re- evaluate the amount of protection and provision you require and adjust for the same. Below are some of the events in your life for which you should re-evaluate and plan your life insurance needs. 6

Life Stages Your insurance need will change as your life does, from starting to work to enjoying your golden years and all the stages in between. Each one of these stages may pose a different insurance need/cover for you. In this section, we have drawn up the basic life stages and help you analyze various insurance needs accordingly.

STAGE 1 Young and Single An important stage where one lays down the foundation of a successful life ahead. Take advantage of the time and power of compounding to ensure that you build up your dreams. Start saving early. Our needs Save for a home and wedding Tax Planning Save for Golden years


STAGE 2 Just Married Marriage brings about a significant change. New dreams and new opportunities also bring in additional responsibilities. While both of you look forward to a happy and secure life , it is equally important to ensure that eventualities don’t come in the way of shaping your dreams. Our needs Planning for home / securing your home loan liability Save for vacation Save for your first child STAGE 3 Proud Parents

Once you have children, your need for life insurance is even more. You need to protect your family from an untoward incident. Ensure your protection umbrella takes into account the future cost of securing your child’s dream. You will want life to go on for your loved ones, and having enough life insurance is a way to help ensure that. Our needs Provide for children’s education Safeguarding family against loan liabilities Savings for post-retirement


STAGE 4 Planning for Retirement While you are busy climbing the ladder of success today, it is important for you to take time and plan for your life after retirement. Having an early start for retirement planning can make a significant difference to your savings. Think about your golden years even before you have reached them. The key is to think ahead and plan well using your time and money. Our needs Provide for regular income post retirement Immediate Tax benefits Lead a secure, independent and comfortable life style in your retirement years

How much Insurance do I need ? The main purpose of life insurance is to provide a financial cushion to urn loved ones in the event that something unfortunate should happen to you. One must provide enough, so as to generate a future income stream that will take care of the financial needs of their dependants. How much insurance you need depends on your annual income, your expenses and your existing assets. Concept of Human life value Generally speaking, one can estimate the extent of life insurance by calculating one’s “human Life Value (HLV). This is the net present value of one’s future earnings. Put simply, it is the amount that a person’s family would permanently lose, should any thing unfortunate happen to that person. As a tomb rule, a 30 year old should insure oneself for about 8 times hrs or her 9

annual income. At 35, this is about 6 times. Of course the exact amount must be adjusted according to the number of dependents, existing investments and one’s life stage. For instance, if at 30 a person has two children and parents to provide for, the amount of insurance should also be higher. You can calculate your Human Life Value by multiplying your current annual income with the number of years remaining for your retirement. Let’s assume that you are 30 years old and you earn Rs.4, 00,000 per annum. Now if your retirement age in 55 you have 25 years to go before retirement. So your Human Life Value is (25 x 4, 00,000) = Rs. 100, 00,000 (One Crore rupees). So, your present Human life Value is one crore rupees, provided you stay healthy. You take factors like inflation and increase in income over a period of time to account your Human Life Value is a lot more. The History of Insurance in India : The India Insurance market has a grand history. The development of insurance states back of the 19th century when the Europeans started the Oriental Life Insurance Company, Calcutta in 1888. The first India Insurance Company Bombay Mutual life Insurance came into existing 1870 to cover India lives at normal rates. The year 1870 is also important in the sense at British government for the first time act that year. Four years later Firoz shah Mehta one of the doyens of India Financial Sector, Oriental Government established the Oriental Government Security Life Assurance Company and after that many Insurance companies in surfaced on Indian soil. However the first Indian insurance act was passed on 1912, again in 1938 an amendment in 1950 when it was nationalized however the sector was once again thrown open to the private sector in Dec 10

1999 followed by the establishment of IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority in April 2000. The Indian Insurance Industry was dominated by two states Insures the Life Insurance Corporation in Life Insurance and The General Insurance Nationalization of the Life and non Life sector in 1956 and 1972 respectively. In dec 99 the IRDA act was passed which limited foreign investors to a 26% cap on equity participation, and minimum capital requirement of $20 million. At present, more than 20 private players are in the market and some are in the pipeline. The advent of the new kids poses to LIC to some what extent, door which LIC will have to change its current polices regarding marketing and product management.

The Life Insurance Scenario in India : Since 1956, with the nationalization if insurance Industry, the states run Life Insurance Corporation of India has held the monopoly in country’s life insurance sector. General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC), with its four subsidiaries, was its counterpart in the casualty sector. Over the time, taking advantages of its monopoly and virtual prerogative in establishing the premiums, LIC has evolved in to a monolith. With around 60000 agents in ever nook and corner of the vast country, it has created an enviable brand name. Particularly among the rural population of the country. It has around $40 billion as its financial sector. However, on the qualitative side, it has every little pride in, and there lies the potential for players to challenge this behemoth. As typical with monopolies, the premiums rates charged LIC are among the highest in the world, and its track record in customer service can at best be called shabby. With a huge unionized, rigid workforce mostly in clerical category. LIC run the risk of high fixed cost, which will be the deciding factor productivity in the competitive scenario. While boasting full scale automations 11

of its operation, the truth is that its technology outdated. The new players. With the state of the art technology under the belt, will be in advantageous position . 80% of LIC’s business is procured by 20% of its ill trained agent force. The foreign player with the domestic partner’s string brand value, can test the unconventional distribution channels like brokers, the Internet the banking distribution system etc., although foreign players may be tempted to keep their operations in big cities for the ‘cream layer’ of the society, the real market lies in rural India, which accounts for the lions share of LIC‘s present business. The foreign players must adapt to Indian realities, the well published failures of the world famous consumer goods companies like Electrolux, whirlpool, Reebok, and Nike etc. to gauge the Indian Psyche and sentiments demonstrate the concept. They failed in the area of realistic pricing, product promotion and reaching to the consumer. The foreign companies know the ground realities to the details.

Endowment Policy, India An endowment policy covers risk for a specified period, at the end of which the sum assured is paid back to the policyholder, along with the bonus accumulated during the term of the policy. An endowment life insurance policy is designed primarily to provide a living benefit and only secondarily to provide life insurance protection. Therefore, it is more of an investment than a whole life policy.Endowment life insurance pays the face value of the policy either at the insured's death or at a certain age or after a number of years of premium payment. Endowment policy is an instrument of accumulating capital for a specific purpose and protecting this savings program against the saver's premature death.


GROUP INSURANCE, INDIA roup insurance offers life insurance protection under group policies to various groups such as employers-employees, professionals, co-operatives, weaker sections of society, etc. It also provides insurance coverage for people in certain approved occupations at the lowest possible premium cost. Group insurance plans have low premiums. Such plans are particularly beneficial to those for whom other regular policies are a costlier proposition. Group insurance plans extend cover to large segments of the population including those who cannot afford individual insurance. A number of group insurance schemes have been designed for various groups. These include employer-employee groups, associations of professionals (such as doctors, lawyers, chartered accountants etc.), and members of cooperative banks, welfare funds, credit societies and weaker sections of society.

JOINT LIFE INSURANCE POLICY, INDIA Joint life insurance policies are similar to endowment policies as they too offer maturity benefits to the policyholders, apart form covering risks like all life insurance policies. But joint life policies are categorized separately as they cover two lives simultaneously, thus offering a unique advantage in some cases, notably, for a married couple or for partners in a business firm. Under a joint life policy the sum assured is payable on the first death and again on the death of the survivor during the term of the policy. Vested bonuses would also be paid besides the sum assured after the death of the survivor. If one or both the lives survive to the maturity date, the sum assured as well as the vested bonuses are payable on the maturity date.


LOAN COVER TERM ASSURANCE POLICY, INDIA Loan cover term assurance policy is an insurance policy, which covers a home loan. Such a policy covers the individual's home loan amount in case of an eventuality. The cover on such a policy keeps reducing with the passage of time as individuals keep paying their EMIs (equated monthly installments) regularly, which reduces the loan amount. This plan provides a lump sum in case of death of the life assured during the term of the plan. The lump sum will be a decreasing percentage of the initial sum assured as per the policy schedule. Since this is a non-participating (without profits) pure risk cover plan, no benefits are payable on survival to the end of the term of the policy. Various insurance companies offering loan repayment protection insurance policy are 

HDFC Standard Life Insurance

Tata AIG

ING Vysya



MONEY BACK POLICY, INDIA Money back policy provides for periodic payments of partial survival benefits during the term of the policy, as long as the policyholder is alive. They differ from endowment policy in the sense that in endowment policy survival benefits are payable only at the end of the endowment period. An important feature of money back policies is that in the event of death at any time within the policy term, the death claim comprises full sum assured without deducting any of the survival benefit amounts, which may have already been paid as money-back components. The bonus is also calculated on the full sum assured.

PENSION PLAN, INDIA A pension plan or an annuity is an investment that is made either in a single lump sum payment or through installments paid over a certain number of years, in return for a specific sum that is received every year, every half-year or every month, either for life or for a fixed number of years. Annuities differ from all the other forms of life insurance in that an annuity does not provide any life insurance cover but, instead, offers a guaranteed income either for life or a certain period. Typically annuities are bought to generate income during one's retired life, which is why they are also called pension plans. By buying an annuity or a pension plan the annuitant receives guaranteed income throughout his life. 15

TERM LIFE INSURANCE POLICY, INDIA Term life insurance policy covers risk only during the selected term period. If the policyholder survives the term, the risk cover comes to an end. Term life policies are primarily designed to meet the needs of those people who are initially unable to pay the larger premium required for a whole life or an endowment assurance policy. No surrender, loan or paid-up values are granted under term life policies because reserves are not accumulated. If the premium is not paid within the grace period, the policy lapses without acquiring any paid-up value.

UNIT LINKED INSURANCE PLANS (ULIP) Unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) is life insurance solution that provides for the benefits of protection and flexibility in investment. The investment is denoted as units and is represented by the value that it has attained called as Net Asset Value (NAV). The policy value at any time varies according to the value of the underlying assets at the time. ULIP provides multiple benefits to the consumer. The benefits include: 

Life protection

Investment and Savings


Adjustable Life Cover

Investment Options



Options to take additional cover against

Death due to accident


Critical Illness



Tax planning

WHOLE LIFE INSURANCE POLICY, INDIA A whole life policy runs as long as the policyholder is alive. As risk is covered for the entire life of the policyholder, therefore, such policies are known as whole life policies. A simple whole life policy requires the insurer to pay regular premiums throughout the life. In a whole life policy, the insured amount and the bonus is payable only to the nominee of the beneficiary upon the death of the policyholder. There is no survival benefit as the policyholder is not entitled to any money during his / her own lifetime.


WHY LIFE INSURANCE Life Insurance has come a long way from the earlier days when it was originally conceived medium for short periods of to me. Covering temporary risk situation, such as sea voyages. As life Insurance became more established, it was realized what a useful tool it was for a number of including.

Temporary need / threats : The original purpose of the life Insurance remains an important elements, namely for replacement of income on death etc.

Regular Saving: Providing for one’s family and oneself, as a medium to long term exercise (through a series of regular payment or premiums) This has become more relevant in recent times as people sect financial independence for their family.

Investment: Put simply the building up of saving while safeguarding it forms the ravages of inflation. Unlike regular saving products, investment products are traidanailly lump sum investment, where the individual likes a one off payment.

Retirement Provisions for later years become increasingly necessary, especially in cultural and social environment. One can buy a suitable insurance policy, which will provide periodical payments in one’s old age.


REVIEW OF INSURANCE SECTOR India is having population of 1 Billion with a middle class population estimated up to 300 million. It being the 5th largest economy in the world in terms of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) has a GDP growth rate of over 6%per year on an average for the last decades. The saving rate is estimated to be about 26% of the GDP. In the total population, the insured the population is estimated to be about 70 million.

Privatization of Insurance: The Indian insurance Sector has finally opened up and it is with much anticipation that new players are awaiting their share of market. License have been issued to both Indian and foreign Players reliance , HDFC standard –life , Max India – Network , Royal Sundaram Alliance, ICICI prudential , IFFCO Tokyo Marine, Bajaj Allianz , Birla Sun life, Tata AIG, AVIVA life Insurance , SBI life , Om Kotak Mahindra are some of the entrants into the newly liberalized Indian insurance market. ICICI Prudential and HDFC Standard life have issued their life policies from the private sector after 45 years. The first move for the liberalization came with the Malhotra Committee Report in 1993 which recommended the privatization of Insurance, setting of an insurance regulatory authority and restructuring the government monopoly LIC and GIC and its subsidiaries IRDA Act passed in November 1999 had set ball rolling for the entry of Private Players in domestic sector.


LIBERALIZATION OF INSURANCE SECTOR: Liberalization commitment of the country to help in disciplining future economic policies will include the insurance reforms. When world over insurance market has been opened up. India cannot remain in isolation. History has shown that it is very difficult to proper in isolation. Globalization is the new economic reality, which is here to stay, heralding a new era of Insurance in India. With the opening of the insurance industry, Indian stands to gain with the following major advantages.  Globalization will provide opportunities to the consumer for the better production. With more reasonable and affordable pricing.  The customer will get quicker service.  It will enhance the saving rate.  Long term funds for infrastructure development will be available to the country.  It will secure for India larger inflow of foreign capital need to sustain our GDP growth.


Advantages of Liberalization:  The opening up will enable the country to save more and invest more for the development in infrastructure.  With new insurance intermediaries and more distribution channels the market is bound to develop by leaps and bounds.  In the next few years it is established that the Indian insurance sector will developed a better understanding of consumer requirement leading to more satisfaction of consumers.  Lead to increase in employment.  Social and rural obligations will also be served as IRDA has come out with clear regulation in this regard which makes the development in this area mandatory.  Global competition will help in building expertise with their global practice.


IRDA The Insurance sector has been opened up in India, as there was an urgent need. The international experience indicates those country with a liberalized insurance sector have witnessed a rapid growth in premium volumes enhancing the domestic saving rate. This happened in China, Malaysia and Singapore where a competitive market has led to improvement in Services and Quicker settlement of claims. It is also important to note that competition will bring about advancement in information, communication and technology. And rightly there force a decision was taken by the Government of India to open up Insurance sector. The establishment of IRDA in the month of April 2000 has been important development in this direction, making the end of monopoly in the insurance sector.

Why Insurance in India  Only 22% of the insurance population has been extended cover. Market penetration is low and the potential to exploit is high.  Insurance premium per capital is very low.  Lack of comprehensive social system benefit and welfare means that demand for pension products is high.  Huge middle class of approximately 300 million.  Existing insurance company score low on customer service front.


Need of brand name in Insurance: Branding is the new key challenge in the financial services industry. Life in the 21st century will be longer with more choice in more field of activity. The financial consequence of the increased life span is particularly likely to be tough. Inevitably, this will lead to more complexity, which in turn necessities greater clarity and appeal from the service providers. Branding is more important in the financial services market which not only faces the problem of securing and retaining customers in an increasing competitive market place but also experience the need for heightened relevance of the brand positioning in world where brand has been termed as new religion.

Focus and strategies are essential for development of brand in any sector but the less tangible world of financial products historically has escaped the branding issues that have governed development and culture in other industries. If there was an industry, which is least, considered as an essentiality it would be the insurance industry. It was always felt as abstract services or a fall back, more likely a safety net. But it is more of shifting through competitive products to select most appropriate one, but with liberalization of the industry, players have to realize the need for branding in competitive environment. Insurance companies need to strive for a greater


customer focus regardless the customer is the end or the intermediary.

Social Product Development Insurance Plan Development Insurance plan is an insurance plan which provides life cover to members of a Development Agency for a term of one year. On the death of any member of the group insured during the year of cover, a lump sum is paid to that member beneficiary to help meet some of the immediate financial needs following their loss.


Eligibility Members of the development agency and their spouses with: - Minimum age at the start of the policy 18 years last birthday - Maximum age at the start of policy 50 years last birthday Employees of the Development Agency are not eligible to join the group. The group to be covered is only eligible if it contains more than 500 members.

Premium Payments The premium to be paid will be quoted per member in the group and will be the same for all members of the group. The premium can only be paid by the Development Agency as a single lump sum that includes all premiums for the group to be covered. Cover will not start until the premium and all the member information in our specified format has been received. The premium rate is Rs. 25 per Rs. 10,000 of lump sum, per member. Benefits On the death of each member covered by the policy during the year of cover a lump sum equal to the sum assured will be paid to their beneficiaries or legal heirs. Where the death is as a result of an accident, an additional lump sum will be paid equal to half the sum assured. There are no benefits paid at the end of the year of cover and there is no surrender value available at any time.

The role of the Development Agency Due to the nature of the groups covered, HDFC Standard Life will be passing certain administrative tasks onto the 36

Development Agency. By passing on these tasks the premium charged can be lower. These tasks would include: Submission of member data in a specified computer format Collection of premiums from group members Recording changes in the details of group members Disbursement of claim payments and the mortality rebate (if any) to group members These tasks would be in addition to the usual duties of a policyholder such as: Payment of premiums Reporting of claims Keeping policy holder information up to date

Training and support will be available to give guidance on how to complete the tasks appropriately. Since these additional tasks will impose a burden on the Development Agency, the Development Agency may charge a Rs. 10 administration fee to their members. Prohibition of rebates Section 41 of the Insurance Act, 1938 states No person shall allow or offer to allow, either directly or indirectly, as an inducement to any person to take out or renew or continue an insurance in respect of any kind of risk relating to lives or property in India, any rebate of the whole or part of the commission payable or any rebate of the premium shown on the policy, nor shall any person taking out or renewing or continuing a policy accept any rebate, except such rebate as may be allowed in accordance with the published prospectus or tables of the insurer

Plans for all income groups are not available which can create adverse effect later on the market share of the company.

CONCLUSION: The market potential for private insurance companies is found to be greater in the long run as most of the Indians are of the opinion that, private insurance companies would be able to perform well in the future. The private and foreign insurance companies have to take immediate steps in appointing more number of agents and / or advisors in addition to the employees as it has been found out that agents are the best channel to reach the general public regarding selling of insurance products. The private and foreign insurance companies have to concentrate on the factors like ‘Prevention of Loss’. ‘Assured Returns’ and ‘Long tern Investment’ they can also focus on an insurance amount of Rest 1- 2lakh with money back policies’ Hence the market has potential. The private and foreign insurance companies that are taking immediate steps can tap it easily and rapidly.




My suggested recommendation for this project are as follows: •

Increasing awareness:-

One of the major problems in recruiting FCs was that they were not aware of the prospects and profit of becoming an FC. So, it was really hard to convince them which could have been easier if they had been aware. •

Increment of target areas:-

The potential areas which are generally targeted by the company should be increased. This will give the opportunity to many people of society those who want to work in the insurance sector & they also have the zeal to achieve something, can proved themselves in this field. And these areas include government employees etc. •

Providing incentives to hard working FCs:-

The extra incentives in the form of additional rewards should be provided to the hard working FCs. This will increase their will power to achieve highest target & this will also boost-up their morale & loyalty towards company. And because of this strategy of company many people will be attracted towards us. •

Promotion areas should be extended:-

Advertisement plays a very important role in promoting something in the market. So major emphasis should be laid on the advertisement, strategy. Today, net advertisements also have a very strong approach in the general public. So there are many methods which can help achieve our target


CONCLUSION Today marketing must be understand not in the old sense of making a sale “telling and selling”-but in the new sense of satisfying customer needs. While selling life insurance one does not sell any tangible product That’s why it becomes very essential to understand customer needs, which will help to distribute and promote the product effectively and it will be easy to sell the products. Life Insurance is all about selling life, for which one should be very realistic and practical because it’s a matter of a person’s life. Selling of insurance policies is not an easy job it is all about convincing people, winning their confidence and assuring them for a safe future. HDFC Standard life Insurance is most respected private life insurance company. In very short time it has won the confidence of people because of its unique features like good services and promising future in insurance sector. While working on this project I came to know facts about insurance business, that there is a cutthroat competition and every company is trying its best to sell the products. Hence it is required to strengthen the selling chain so as to compete in the market, as a part of my project I have tried to strengthen the chain by employing few people for the company with a desired profile. I have discussed various issues in the project, which should be taken care of while recruiting the financial consultants for the company. Lastly I would like to conclude by saying quoting the following quote, which signifies the importance of Life insurance in ones, Life.
