Insurance: Insurance means that the Probable loss occurring in future can be so shared that the overall impacted of total loss to any individual or section of the society is mitigated. Insurance can be of life for the compensation in case of normal or accidental death or of property like car, bus ship, airplane, etc. in case of loss caused by fire, floods, earth quakes etc. Insurance provides compensation for the loss to a maximum extent. The term insurance is sometimes also called assurance. Both terms are defined in the same way, as “It is a social device providing financial compensation for a fact of misfortune the payment being made from accumulated contribution of all participants in the scheme”. The other definition may be “Insurance is financial arrangement which distributes the cost of unexpected losses”. Technically, above-mentioned

2. UNDERWRITTING Underwriting is the process through which the underwriter assesses the risk associated with the Insurance proposal. Underwriter verifies the personal information provided in the proposal form. If he feels that client should have a medical checkup than SLIC has its own panel of doctors to provide medical assistance.

3. PREMIUM CALCULATION After underwriting, the premium of sum assured is calculated in accordance with the rate book provided by the SLIC.

4. POLICY ISSUE SECTION After premium calculation the insurance and revenue stamps are embossed on the policy bond and the policy document is sent to Client. One copy of policy document is sent to Policyholder Service Department for record purposes. New Business Department considers the risk associated with the proposal and estimates the premium for the client through a formal agreement between SLIC and the client.

5. AGENCY DEPARTMENT Services provided by the SLIC are intangible and are therefore are not acquired at the counter by the people who need it, so it must be sold to them by the persuasive method. In order to maintain the record of the field force this department was established. Here are some basic operations of this department. This department is involved in the recruitment, promotion, Selection and termination of the field force. The Principle office Karachi controls this department.

Audit is the official examination of the accounts of the organization to see whether the reported income is presented in real terms. Actually audit system removes the element of any type of cheating of fraud and taxes levied on actual income, all the unfair means of benefit are supposed to eliminate by the system. SLIC is having internal as well as external audit. So, in the same manner this department is some how like account section but instead of maintaining accounts, its work is just to check the work. The department provides assistance to external audit. It is compulsory for all registered companies to check their accounts by any of audit firm every year spent. No audit firm can audit any company for more than three years. As well as the working of this department is concerned their basic work is to reconcile each and every transaction among the departments and find the mistakes or errors.

The deduction income tax of services is also work of internal audit department which is 6%. When I work in this department I do audit of vouchers which include medical, general payment and death claim and maturity claim. One important thing is that the amount which is allocated for the expense is fixed. If vouchers are above that amount than the person or department pay it their own pockets. These all amounts are written on entitlement page from which we can check the amount and rectify it. In maximum 2 days the vouchers check and rectify. They have also record of receiving the vouchers so that the vouchers may not be lost.

SEGMENTATION/ PEST analysis Segment is the process of finding the segment that offers greatest potential for success in persuasive communication and to allocate resources efforts to those who are more promising. Markets consist of buyers, and buyers differ in one or more ways. They may differ in their wants, resources, locations, buying attitudes and buying practices, because buyers have unique needs and wants, each buyers potentially a separate market. Ideally, then, a seller might design a separate marketing program for each buyer. Segmentation means finding the segment that shows clear variations in market behavior when compared with other segments.


BASIS FOR SEGMENTATING CONSUMERS There is no single way to segment a market. A market has to try different segmentation variables, alone and in combination, to find the best way to view the market structure. The following table outlines the major variables that might be used in segmenting consumer markets. VARIABLES TYPICAL BREAKDOWNS Geographical/political Region, Country Size, Climate, political factors. Demographic economical Age, Gender, Family Size, Income, Occupation, Education, Religion , economical factors. Psycho graphic/ socials class, Lifestyle, Personality, Behavioral/ technological User status, Usage rate, Loyalty status, Benefits sought, modern technology usages.

SWOT ANALYSIS SWOT is the abbreviation of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Strength of the organization can be measured from the activities and resources that give it a competitive edge over competitors. Weaknesses reflect areas where the organization lacks better performance. Threats are the environmental conditions that can affect the performance of organization in order to be more competitive. In light of the SWOT analysis, management also reevaluates its current mission and objectives. Are they realistic? Do they need modification? As we where we want to be right now? SWOT stands for Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats. The main aim of this analysis is to identify the extent to which the current strategy of the organization and its more specific changing taking place in the business environment. The idea of SWOT analysis is to undertake a more structured analysis so as to yield findings, which can contribute the formulation of strategy. SWOT analysis of SLIC is as follows:

STRENGTHS The following facts reflect the strengths of the State Life Insurance 1 MARKET SHARE


SLIC has 90% Market Share in life insurance business in Pakistan. It makes the corporation more reliable and profitable.

1 EXCELLENT SET UP SLIC is a large Life Insurance Corporation in Pakistan and have 26 Zonal Offices and 4 Regional Offices throughout the country.

1. INFRASTRUCTURE State Life Insurance Corporation is one of the oldest institutions of the country with a huge setup spread all over the country. The Corporation has four regions and twenty- six zones that provide basic facilities to the Corporation to penetrate deeply in the insurance market.

3. AUTHORISED CAPITAL State Life Insurance Corporation has got the highest paid up capital in the insurance sector. This fact makes the Corporation the richest Insurance Corporation of the country.

4. GOVERNMENT SECURITY State Life Insurance Corporation main strength is the security provided by the Government to the policyholders. It makes the Corporation more reliable and self-efficient for policyholders.


5. EXPEIRIENCE. State Life Insurance Corporation has got an experience of almost 27 years in the life insurance industry that makes it the more experienced Insurer in the country.

6. ADVERTISING &SALES PROMOTION During 1998, a new penal of four advertising agencies was selected. Outdoor advertising such as installation of Unicode Hoarding display of commercials in PTV is done and other publicity materials such as Calendars, Stickers, Eid Cards, and Posters are produced to boost business activities.

7. ORGANIZATION CULTURE State Life Insurance Corporation’s culture reflects devotion, motivation and cooperation that acts as an asset for the Corporation.

8. MARKETING DIVISION This division is backbone of SLIC. During 1998, 25486 young and educated people were inducted as SR in the sale force, this raising its strength to 256,814, inclusive of SO & SM.

9. SALES FORCE Stat Life Insurance Corporation has the biggest sales force in the Life Insurance industry. It helps the organization to push its policies down to the customers.

10. RATE OF RETURN State Life Insurance Corporation gives highest rate of return. It also provides bonuses to its policyholder i.e. Golden Jubilee Bonuses.



State Life Insurance Corporation is one the oldest Insurance Corporation in the country with a history to support its corporate image. The goodwill created by the Corporation acts as a barrier for the other to follow in the Insurance industry.

12. REAL ESTATE DIVISION (INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO) SLIC has well-equipped and computerized Real Estate Division in principal office (PO) Karachi supervised by highly qualified staff, engineers and investment analysts.

13. COMPUTERIZATION About 2/3 working is computerized in SLIC. The Plan to computerize total working is under review.


● PO conducts marketing survey to analyze environment and develop new plans. ● Employees are fully devoted and highly paid workers as compare to other organization. ● It has highest paid up capital. ● It is reinsured by Swiss Re (Insurance Company Switzerland).



We saw that in different departments that in some section employees are less to do the work at time. Because capacity of work is more than the employee’s capacity. Particularly in Policy Holder Services which deals with the policy Holders 2. LESS JOB ROTATION Job Rotation in state life is taking part in very rare cases. We saw that people working in the same department don’t know the work of other person. By increasing job rotation practice the skills of the employees can be sharpen. 3. INCOMPETENT FIELD FORCE In term of quantity, it is strength but in term of quality it is weakness. Most workers are not highly educated. They are promoted by fulfilling targets.

4. UNDERWRITING The under-writing process at initial level is based solely on judgmental methods. It should be based on practical methods. 5. CENTRALIZED DECISION MAKING Managerial decision-making is totally centralized in the PO Karachi, Zonal Offices follow the instruction and rules & regulations provided by PO. Sometimes decisions is taken by PO is not strategic and adjustable in the local environment. For prosperity & survival of the organization, decentralization (to some extent) is necessary. 6. SELECTION & RECRUITMENT SR are selected and recruited by SO & SM irrespective of their education and unique internal attributes.



1.FEED BACK The Corporation does not have any effective and efficient feed back channel to disseminate sales force suggestions to upper management. Further, organization has no well organize system for feedback between office employees and manager, managers and Board of Directors. 2. PER - CAPITA PREMIUM In Pakistan per capita premium payment is $1.5 and $1.7 only for life & general insurance respectively. There is an opportunity to enhance this nominal rate. In Japan per capita premium for life insurance is $3810.

3. POPULATION GROWTH RATE In Pakistan, population growth rate is approximately 3%. It is a great opportunity for insurance sector.

4. INUSRED POPULATION In Pakistan 2% to 3% population is insured while rest of the population provides opportunity to life insurers to enhance their business. 5. GOVERNMENT REGULATION Section 10-B of Pakistan Commercial and Industrial Standing Ordinance 1968 provides the compulsory insurance of all the employees of the organization (whether private or govt. ). So it is a great opportunity to SLIC. 6. ENTRY BARRIERS To enter in the insurance business huge investment is required. Further 40% of premium are compulsory for the private insurers, to cede to Government of Pakistan security purpose is creating the entry barrier.


STATE LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF PAKISTAN The existence of local and government insures such as EFU, CU and Metropolitan. ALICO etc. is threat to the survival of SLIC.

2. POLITICAL INSTABILITY Political instability looses the confidence of the policyholders. Further rules and regulations of government are subject to change creating threat to insurance business. 3. FEAR OF WAR The relationships of Pakistan with India are not satisfactory due to Kashmir dispute. There is always a fear of war creating the threat to corporation and policyholders.

4. INVESTMENT CLIMATE Due to the political instability and government changeover the investment climates are not satisfactory in the country. So the return from real estates and other activities is deteriorated.

SUGGESTIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS Suggestions are the keys to success, proper working and prosperity of the corporation. During our internship-training period we conducted some interviews from the policyholders and has taken their suggestions.

Recommendation from the interviews of policyholders 1. In PHS department different section should be properly separated, so that it will be easy for customer to reach their concerned section.

2. There should be proper sitting arrangement. Particularly in PHS and NEW BUSINESS department, no of chairs should be increased.

3. There should be a “General Information Cell” on the ground floor, because when most of the policyholder are illiterate and can’t understand the map given at ground floor.

4. The reception should be attractive, and must bear all the relevant information’s which ever the policy holder requires 5. Sales Rap should properly guide to the policyholder.

6. In some departments policyholders are not kindly being served. So this thing should be removed, because if they don’t behave well with the policyholders then they may lose their existing and potential customers.

SOME OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS 1. There should be a complaint cell in the building of state life insurance corporation. This will enhance the credibility of the company. This will lead them towards customer satisfaction.

2. There should be “Job Rotation” for the employees working in the state life either in the same department or in some other departments.


3. All the working of SLIC should be fully computerized. All the zonal Offices should be interconnected.

4. State Life Insurance Corporation should arrange some documentary program on TV order to create awareness in the potential customers.

5. There should be an educational program for field members as they promote from SR TO SO, SO TO SM and so on. Because the people on the higher post should be at least graduate. 6. Behavioral training should be given to field force and they should be motivated not to deceive the innocent policyholder.

7. There is a need of more and extensive training program for office workers.

8. Flexible pay system should be introduced in the corporation to motivate the workers to do more work.

9. The labor union of SLIC should be more competitive for the betterment of their workers.

10. Quick service should be provided to policyholders in case of underwriting.

11. Two-way feedback is compulsory between corporation and employees.

12. Proper concentration should be given to the inputs of the field force. All the requirements and rules & regulations should be critically met before selection and recruitment of field force.

13. Field force and office workers should be strictly asked to wear the proper uniform developed by SLIC while they are on the job.

14. The employees should be rotated from one job setting to another. So that in case of emergency there should not be a working problem.


CONCLUSION At the end of this report I conclude with these words that State Life Insurance Corporation has excellent setup in Pakistan and provide valuable services to its policy holders and also a big custodian of their money. This is the only organization in which employees are very loyal to this corporation and no corruption exists in this corporation.
