  10. 10. Conclusion<br /> HDFC Standard Life insurance is the oldest life insurance company in the world. It has businesses spread out across the globe. It was registered on 23rd December2000. It currently ranks number 4 amongst the insurers in India (Source: annual premium provided by the company)<br /> The company faces a large amount of competition. To sustain itself it must promote its products through advertising and improve its selling techniques. Consumers must be aware of the new plans available at HDFC SLIC. The medium of advertising used could be television since most of its competitors use this tool to promote their products<br /> The unit linked concept must be specifically promoted. The general perception of life insurance has to change in India before progress is made in this field. People should not be afraid to invest money in insurance and must use it as an effective tool for tax planning and long term savings.<br /> HDFC SLIC could tap the rural markets with cheaper products and smaller policy terms. There are individuals who are willing to pay small amounts as premium but the plans do not accept premiums below a certain amount. It was usually found that a large number of males were insured compared to females. Individuals below the age of 30 (mostly male) were interested in investment plans. This was a general conclusion drawn during prospecting clients.<br />
