Annexure ( Questionnaire For Comparision ) 29 exeCUTiVe SUMMARY Monopoly of LIC has been broken to make Indian Insurance to change its face and pace to tap the market and to make the new challenges in it. Insurance in India is not about India only; it is an open sector for the private players. The name which we would see in Indian insurance market is something like: - Bharti (Indian company) + AXA(foreign player), BAJAJ (Indian company) + Allianz (foreign player), TATA (Indian company) + AIG (foreign player) and so many like them. Companies now are tapping a lot of ways to capture the market and hence adopting different ways to hold the large portion of the market. Our project is to understand the different marketing strategies adopted by the companies to increase their market share and along with it meeting their own targets to achieve the position of no.1 in respective field or segment of the market. About Insurance:- Insurance may be defines as social device to protect the economic value of the Life and other assets. Under the plan of Insurance a group of people are brought together and their share of money is pooled to manage the loss suffered by any of them. Insurance is a contract whereby in return of the payment of the premium by the insured the insurers pay the financial loss suffered by the insured as a result of the loss by the unforeseen events. The term “risk” is used to define the probability of loss. Insurance is a pool where large number of people exposed to similar kind of risks makes contribution to the common fund out of which the losses suffered by the unfortunate few due to accidental events are made good.
  5. 5. The sharing of risk among large group of people is the basis of insurance. Characteristics of Insurance:- 1. Sharing of Risk 2. Cooperative device 3. Evaluation of Risk 4. Payment on event of happening of any special event 5. The amount of payment depends on the size and type of loss. 6. The success of Insurance business depends on the law of large number of people insured against similar risk. 7. Insurance is a business which spreads the loss and the risk of few people in the large number of people. 8. The insurance is a plan in which insured transfer his risk to insurer. Insurance is divided in two basic zones:- 1. General Insurance 2. Life Insurance About General Insurance:- Insurance of the non life assets are called general insurance, this includes loss of asset against water, fire, earthquake etc. With the desertification in the Indian Market in General Insurance the monopoly of the general Insurance public sector’s companies has been broken. With the entrance of the new private player market innovative technique has been introduced to capture the market. In general Insurance around 17% of the market has been captured by the private players. General Insurance is a sector which alone has many type of insurance coverage in it like Fire Insurance, Marine Insurance, motor Insurance, Liability Insurance, Engineering Insurance etc. The Non Life Insurers  National Insurance Co. Ltd  New Indian Assurance Co. Ltd  Oriental Insurance Co. Ltd  United India Insurance Co. Ltd
  6. 6.  Tata AIG General Insurance Co. Ltd  Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Co. Ltd  IFFCO Tokio General Insurance Co. Ltd  ICICI Lombard General Insurance Co. Ltd  Reliance General Insurance Co. Ltd  Royal Sundaram Alliance Insurance Co. Ltd  Bharti Axa General Insurance Ltd.  HDFC Chub Life Insurance and India:- Life Insurance in India existed from long time. The modern concept of Insurance was brought by Bruisers in India, and Oriental Insurance Company was the first Insurance Company who did Insurance for the Indian in 1818 and was established in Calcutta nowadays Kolkata. Then due to no interference of government in it, private market players ruled the market as they want to, that is why government intervened in between to protect the interest of the mass and to safeguard the money involved in it. All private companies were took over by Government and Insurance market was turned to Public sector and Life Insurance Corporation of India was formed in 1956 to make the Insurance reachable at remote areas and that even by low premiums or better said as affordable premium so as to secure their life. From the beginning of Insurance in India till now a lot of changes have been made but the most significant change was in 1999, when IRDA was formed. IRDA means Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority. This was formed to rethink upon opening the insurance sector for the Private players again but along with that to have a check upon those private players an IRDA has to act as a governing body to safeguard the interest of the public whose money is involved in it. From that time i.e. from the year 2001 insurance sector was opened for the private players too. Since then Insurance sector is on the boom and business is flourishing and a lot of private players are coming into business. Here the private players doesn’t indicate to Indian Private Companies but also foreign players are also involved in it, but to manage the money flow in and outside the country IRDA takes care of the contribution of the money by foreign partners of private insurance companies. To control that IRDA has set a limit of FDI i.e. 26%.

  8. 8. Indian Contract Act 1872 Life Insurance contracts are the one which has to fulfil the requirements of the Law of Contract as per the Indian Contract Act 1872. Indian Contract Act 1872 implies: A contract must have certain essential features in order to make it legally valid and enforceable. Essential Features:- 1. Offer and Acceptance: - There should be the offer by the customer in form of proposal form and Acceptance by the Insurance Company. 2. Consideration- There should be the valid consideration against the insured property in terms of the premium to b paid by the consumer. 3. Agreement between the parties: - There should be consensus on the both side of the parties. 4. Capacity to contract: - The Insured should have the capacity to perform the contract as that he a?) He should be of sound mind b) he should not be abided by law to go for any contract c) he should be major that he should have the age minimum to 18.
  9. 9. 5. Legality: - there should be the legality of contract as it should be legal in nature and must be brought for the lawful consideration. Above details have some technical words like Insured, Insurer, and Premium etc. Let’s make a brief note on that for a better understanding:- Policyholder: - The one who pays the premium against policy Insured: - The one who is insured against risk by insurance company. Insurer: - The one gives the insurance i.e. Insurance Company. Premium: - The amount against continuance of the insurance P.S.:- Policyholder and Insured can be same person and can be two individuals even. Apart from the Legal Structure of the Insurance Contract there are some principles in Insurance Industry on which every company works on. These principles are:- Utmost Good Faith: - It is also termed as Uberrima Fides. It is applicable on the proposer that all the contents which are filled and signed by him on the proposal form are true as per his knowledge. Insurable Interest: - It means that the property or life which is to be insured the proposer has the legal rights upon that. Without insurable interest no insurance can be provided. In life insurance term legal rights on life means to prove the blood relation. A husband can take policy for his wife. Indemnity:- The prinviple of indemnity is an insurance principle stating that an insured may not be compensated be the insurance company in an amount exceeding the insured's economic loss. Contribution:- Where there are two or more insurance on one risk, the principle of contribution comes into play. The aim of contribution is to distribute the actual amount of loss among the different insurers who are liable for the same risk under different policies in respect of the same subject matter. Any one insurer may pay to the insured the full amount of the loss covered by the policy and then become
  10. 10. entitled to contribution from his co-insurers in proportion to the amount which each has undertaken to pay in case of loss of the same subject-matter. Subrogation:- The doctrine of subrogation is a corollary to the principle of indemnity and applies only to fire and marine insurance. According to it, when an insured has received full indemnity in respect of his loss, all rights and remedies which he has against third person will pass on to the insurer and will be exercised for his benefit until he (the insurer) recoups the amount he has paid under the policy. Causa Proxima:- The rule of causa proxima means that the cause of the loss must be proximate or immediate and not remote. If the proximate cause of the loss is a peril insured against, the insured can recover. Mitigation of Loss - In the event of some mishap to the insured property, the insured must take all necessary steps to mitigate or minimize the loss, just as any prudent person would do in those circumstances. If asked we should know the benefits of the insurance and that can be known by knowing the function of the insurance. PRIMARY FUNCTION:- 1. Provide protection: - As risks controlling is not in the hands of anyone completely that is why Insurance Company provides the risk protection. 2. Collective bearing of loss: - Insurance Company would have to accept the loss and give respective claims as for the sake of contract that has been done between the company and the insured. 3. Assessment of Risk: - There should be the proper assessment of the risk so as to charge the correct and legible premium to insure the subject matter of insurance. 4. Provide the certainty: - As the losses appear from the uncertainty so Insurance Company would have to provide the certainty of
  11. 11. absorbing the loss so as to protect the insured under the risk in which he has been insured. SECONDARY FUNCTION:- 1. Prevent Loss: - Insurance cautious businessman and individuals to adopt suitable device to prevent unfortunate consequences of risk by observing safety instructions. 2. Small capital to large risk: - Small capital is demanded to cover the risk of the large capital. OTHER FUNCTION:- It is a means of savings and investment apart from it its share in the GDP counts very important. In India it is in a growing stage in compare of the other countries lets’ have a look on it:- United Kingdom 8.9% Japan 8.3% Korea 7.3% United States 4.1% Malaysia 3.6% India 3.0% China 1.8% Brazil 1.3% If we talk in terms of India only then the result will be something like this:-
  12. 12. Working of Life Insurance: Risk has to be assessed in order to decide tithe premium or to decide that subject is insurable or not.
  13. 13. Pure Risk vs. Speculative Risk:- Event representing there will be possibility of loss or no loss is called pure risk. These risks are insurable in nature. Speculative risk is the one which truly resembles gamble. There is the possibility of loss or gain and wherever there is a chance of making profit there insurance cannot exist. Therefore these risks are not insurable in nature. Approaches to Risk Management:- Risk Management is the process of minimising the risk due to unforeseen events. Steps involved in selecting the Risk Management are:- • To identify all the things that can be possibly wrong. • To consider possibility that an event can occur. Techniques toward the Risk Management;- 1. Avoiding the Risk: - Risk can be managed by avoiding it as when the perils will come then it will be managed. 2. Eliminate the Risk: - Risk can be managed by eliminating the cause of the loss. 3. Reducing the Risk: - Risk can be reduced by handling them in a systematic manner. 4. Transfer of Risk: - Risk can be minimized by transferring the risk of loss to any other person which is a true form of the INSURANCE. About Bharti AXA Insurance Ltd.:-

  26. 26. According to Kotler,” Marketing is a social and managerial process by which individuals and groups obtain what they need; want through creating, offering and exchanging of products of value through other.

  27. 27. TELE MARKETING: It is a kind of Direct selling, which makes the LEAD GENERATION for the BUSINESS, or it turned into the SALES that are again building BUSINESS for the company. Tele Marketing is marketing the product through telephone. The most important aspect of Tele Marketing is COLD CALLING, HOT CALLING, and OBJECTION HANDLING. Cold Calling means Calling to the unknown telephone number for the first time and that even without knowing the respondent. Hot Calling means Calling to already approached person for the further response Objection Handling means to handle the type of objection that may arise while calling. By different type of calling we used to generate the LEAD for the further business. Result from Calling:- Appointment: - Calling used to turn into the appointment to generate the lead for the business depending upon the motto to call, which was sometimes for the appointment of the Life Advisors and sometimes for selling the policies. Mail Brochure: - Sometimes responses were that the respondent is not able to talk due to some reasons and they ask to mail the details via e mail. Call Later: - Responses used to come as to call later because of their busy schedules, incorrect time to call as the persons busy in meeting or having lunch, or driving or is in roaming area.
  28. 28. Already a customer of Bharti AXA: - little response came as the person is already a customer of the Bharti AXA Insurance. Not Interested: - Most of the responses turned to not interest the basic reason for that is, in India Insurance are much about telling then asking. Database Problem: - If we got the database then problem like wrong number was frequent to observe. CHANNEL MARKETING Distribution Network of Individual Life Insurance Business in India
  29. 29. Direct selling part includes Tele marketing through advertisements etc. Brokers are the one who can sell the insurance product of a lot of company and is appointed by the company but works for the individual and earn brokerage through company. Life Advisors is the name given to the traditional “Agent” which we often hear. Life Advisor is the one who can sell the insurance product of only one company and commission is what he earns in reference to the business provided by him. Other channel here means the Corporate Agents, banks, selling through Franchisee etc. are the parts of the channels which create business for the company. Channel development’s most important aspect is Life advisor so we should know the process of recruiting the life advisor. Procedure of Getting Insurance :- First of all PHF form has to be filled along with it necessary document has to be attached:- PHF means Personal History Form in which NAME, ADDRESS, MOBILE NO., Type of Training Required etc has to be mentioned. Simply all those information has to be there which are necessary to be known to the company so as to decide the potential of the Proposer to bring the business to the company. Then basic requirements as per the rule of the Insurance Act, 1938 has to be fulfilled. 1. Person has to be major 2. Should be of sound mind 3. Should work for only one company
  30. 30. 4. Should be 10th if going for rural area, and should be 12th passed if going for the urban area. Urban area means the area having the population above 5000 persons. 5. Should have residential proof 6. Should have identity proof. 7. Copy of PAN Card has to be attached. And then the most important aspect that person will have to go for the 50 hours training and will have to secure 50% marks to pass the examination conducted by III (Insurance Institute of India) in behalf of IRDA to get the licence to do the policy and earn the commission out of the work done. Bharti AXA life is the theme that is opted by the Bharti for its employee CPI = FOS*% active * Average case size * Average case rate CPI: Cash Premium Income FYP i.e. First Year Premium excluding the renewal premium is CPI of the company. FOS: Feet on Street. Sales are source of it and source of sales is Life Advisors. Percentage active: It is that how many policies the life Advisors have sold or in a better manner we can say that active is the one who sells at least one policy in a year. Average Case Size = TOTAL PREMIUM / no. of policies Average Case Rate = Total policies/ No. of Active Life Advisor In it different training modules is designed at different levels of life advisors. Rewards and recognition has 5 levels in it:-
  31. 31. RECOMMENDATIONS:- • Some more motivation to the employees over there is needed. • Infrastructure has to be built properly because an office is the face of the company. • Tele marketing need to be focussed much. • Networking is needed to be made broad as the number of branches with KotakLife is only 75 and the 7 states has been touched by the company so there is a huge untapped market available for the Kotak. • Marketing in terms of the media via advertisements on Televisions to small commercials on FM has to be made because there were respondents in our survey who even haven’t heard the name of KOTAK Life Insurance. FM is suggested here because the people who can drive the private life insurance is the youth, and FM is something on which youngsters look upon too. • Awareness Camp to the sub urban area should be focussed by kotak.
  32. 32. • Apart from the Brand Positioning in urban area, a strategy should be adopted by Kotak to make its brand also near to middle level, or high aspirant people because they are the main source of the business in India. 1.
