FOUNDER OF RELIANCE Few men in history have made as dramatic a contribution to their country‘s economic fortunes as did the founder of Reliance, Shri. Dhirubhai H Ambani. Fewer still have left behind a legacy that is more enduring and timeless. As with all great pioneers, there is more than one unique way of describing the true genius of Dhirubhai: The corporate visionary, the unmatched strategist, the proud patriot, the leader of men, the architect of India‘s capital markets, the champion of shareholder interest. But the role Dhirubhai cherished most was perhaps that of India‘s greatest wealth creator. In one lifetime, he built, starting from the proverbial scratch, India‘s largest private sector enterprise. When Dhirubhai embarked on his first business venture, he had a seed capital of barely US$ 300 (around ` 14,000). Over the next three and a half decades, he converted this fledgling enterprise into a ` 60,000 crore colossus—an achievement which earned Reliance a place on the global Fortune 500 list, the first ever Indian private company to do so. Dhirubhai is widely regarded as the father of India‘s capital markets. In 1977, when Reliance Textile Industries Limited first went public, the Indian stock market was a place patronised by a small club of elite investors which dabbled in a handful of stocks. Undaunted, Dhirubhai managed to convince a large number of first-time retail investors to participate in the unfolding Reliance story and put their hard-earned money in the Reliance Textile IPO, promising them, in exchange for their trust, substantial return on their investments. It was to be the start of one of great stories of mutual respect and reciprocal gain in the Indian markets. Under Dhirubhai‘s extraordinary vision and leadership, Reliance scripted one of the greatest growth stories in corporate history anywhere in the world, and went on to
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 19 | P a g e become India‘s largest private sector enterprise. Through out this amazing journey, Dhirubhai always kept the interests of the ordinary shareholder uppermost in mind, in the process making millionaires out of many of the initial investors in the Reliance stock, and creating one of the world‘s largest shareholder families. HISTORY Reliance Capital Limited announced the launch of its life insurance business on February 1, 2006.

Each premium paid by the insured person is split: a part is used to provide life assurance cover, while the balance (after the deduction of costs, expenses, etc.) is used to buy units in a unit trust. In this way, a small investor can benefit from investment in a managed fund without making a large financial commitment. As they are linked to the value of shares, unit linked policies can go up or down in value. Policyholders can surrender the policy at any time and the surrender value is the selling price of the units purchased by the date of cancellation 9less expense). A small part of the contribution is used for providing life cover and the balance is invested in unit. Legal heirs are entitled to the amount of insurance cover and entitled units in case of death of the insured.

I help people in analyzing their present financial
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 35 | P a g e condition and how they may further be benefited in building a financially secured future.  As discussed earlier with you, all we will need is half an hour of your valuable time. I assure you that you will not be under obligation to buy.  Let us consider a situation, where the client‘s age is 35 years, his spouse is aged 32 years and they have a child aged 2 Years.  With your kind permission, I will like to know about some of your details about you and your family members, which will help us to do the right analysis and find appropriate solution for you.  I assure you, these details will be kept strictly confidential and under no circumstances be shared with anyone else. And at the end of the discussion I will leave the paper with you.  Before I start, I just wanted to tell you that it would have been better if bhabhi ji also joins us in this discussion. Step 1: Seeking Information  Mr. Rakesh, I would like to know your current age.  35 Years  I would like to know whether you are married.  Yes  If Response if ‘Yes’: If you don‘t mind, may I know madam‘s Name and Age.  Sweta Sharma, 32 Years  (If Married), Do you have any children ?  Yes, I have a daughter  If Response if ‘Yes’: If you don‘t mind, I will also like to know the sweet little ones name and age.
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 36 | P a g e  Sanjana Sharma, 2 Years  Apart from this, do you have any other dependants?  Yes, my parents  If you don‘t mind, may I ask about your current occupation and for how long are you involved in it? Where did you start first?  At the Age of 25 years, in Delhi  How long do you intend to keep earning from your current occupation? In other words, by what age you plan to take off from your occupation and enjoy your life  Till 60 years  If I have understood you correctly, you are currently 35 years of age, with a family comprising of your wife, aged 32 years and a children aged 2 years respectively.  Name: Rakesh Sharma Age: 35 Years  Wife: Sweta Sharma Age: 32 Years  Daughter: Sanjana Sharma Age: 02 Years Step 2: Need Identification  As you have told me that you started your earning at the age of 25 years. And you wish to continue till the age of 60 years.  I would also like to inform you that As per World Health Organization (WHO) report, the current Average Indian Male will go on to live till 75 years and the Average Indian Female will live 5 years more than their male counterpart i.e. 80 years.  Though I wish that you live more than 100 years.  Sir, can you pls tell me what is your monthly expenses currently including house rent, food, child education, medical expenses, transportation, etc. i.e. the cost to
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 37 | P a g e maintain your family as of now?.  Approx. Rs. 20000  Consider if you maintain the same life style and family 25 years back say in late 80s or early 90s, your expense would have been same or different?  Different. Approx Rs. 2000  An increase of 10 Times. Am I correct sir?  Correct me if I am wrong, as you had shared with me earlier , that you intend to take off from your work at the age of 60 years.  Considering that inflation and other environmental factors etc. what would be your monthly expense when you attain the age of 60 i.e. 25 years from now to maintain your family? Will it increase @ 10 times or more?  I think it will go up to Rs. 100000 / month  So total expense for a year = 100000X12= 1200000 i.e. 12 Lacs  You will continue without income from 60 to 75 years i.e. around 15 years.  So you will require 1200000X15 = 18000000 i.e. 1.8 Cr  Since you have started earning very early, I am very sure that you would have saved for your old age. Can I know the approx value of your savings for old age as on date?  Rs. 1000000 i.e. 10 Lacs  As we have seen that your expense went up, in the same way value of your saving will also go up in next 25 years. Can I know the approx value of your saving at the age of 60.  Rs. 8000000 i.e. 80 lacs  So you will still require 18000000-8000000= 10000000 i.e. 1 Cr. for your old age.  Have you ever thought of it sir?
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 38 | P a g e Step 3: Creating Urgency  Let‘s assume that you are at the age 60 and I tell you about your requirement of Rs. 1 crore at that point.  Can you tell me about any investment avenue which can give you a return of Rs.1 crore in such a short span of time. I don‘t think there is any!  But if you start provisioning for it at the age of 55 years, will it be easier for you or not?  Sure  Same thing if you start at the age of 45 years, will it be little easier or not?  Yes, easier  Which one will be the most easiest for you? If you start at the age of 35 i.e. now or after it?  At the age of 35.  That is what I was trying to convey you.  There are so many ways in which you can provision for it. You can invest in
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 39 | P a g e Bank, Share Market, Real estate, Gold etc.  But I can tell you about an avenue of investment which will cover your risk, will be easier , will be cheap and is available for you if you wish to start provisioning now.  And that is INSURANCE  Once you start provisioning for it, the whole amount of 1 crore will be set aside by insurance company for your family.  You will be paying premium for it in bit and pieces and not at once, which will be easier for you.  If you start now, the premium will be the lowest otherwise as your age increases, premium will also increase.  Now because you are healthy, any insurance company will be willing to make provision for your corpus of Rs. 1 crore. And as you know any one can catch illness in this changing environment. Once anyone becomes ill, no insurance company would like to bear his / her risk.  In today‘s world where there is no certainty of life, only insurance ascertain you that the corpus which you wish to built will reach to you or your family whatever the circumstances may be.
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 40 | P a g e Step 4: Proposing a Solution  As per the risk appetite and saving capacity of the customer, a solution can be proposed.  If customer wants to take risk on his investment to create the corpus for his old age, then we can suggest him Unit Linked Insurance product.  In ULIPs, customer may get a return of 12-15% on his investment in long run (As per the past history of share market). Investment risk in market linked product is borne by the policyholder.  And if the customer does not want to take risk and wants guaranteed return on his investment, then Traditional insurance products can be offered.  In traditional products, customer will get a return in the range of 6-10% in long run. Investment risk in traditional product is borne by insurer.  It is very much possible that customer may not be able to pay the premium required for building a corpus of 1 crore at this point of time. His current income may not permit it.  But he can always start with a small corpus of let us say 10-20 lacs with his present disposable income. And as and when his income grows, rest of the corpus

A.4> ABOUT PROJECT The project deals with the topic ULIP(Reliance classic plan-II):Breaking the myth and repositioning as a product of choice. The project would also help in understanding preference of people regarding private and public insurance companies. The entry of foreign MNC‘s and the conductive business environment fostered by the government, it is no wonder that the re-entry of private insurance has marked a second coming for the sector. In just five years, the sector has undergone a makeover, offering more choice, better services, quicker settlement, tighter regulation and greater awareness ‗s the environment become more and more competitive and services and products become alike, creating a differentiation is becoming extremely tough. Thus, the main objective of my project was to find out the preference of people regarding insurance companies, which would help R.L.I. employees to market their product. The study then goes on to evaluate and analyze the findings so as to present a clear picture of recent trends in the Insurance sector.

If you are unable to pay due regular premiums within the grace period:
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 56 | P a g e A revival notice will be sent to the policyholder within fifteen days from the date of expiry of the grace period. The policyholder shall be entitled to 1. revive the policy, or 2. to withdraw completely from the policy without any insurance benefit, accidental death benefit and rider benefits. The policyholder has to exercise any one of the options within 30days from the date of receipt of the revival notice. During this period, the policy will be treated as in-force with insurance and accidental death benefits but the rider benefits will cease immediately. The policy will participate in the performance of fund. Mortality charges, Accidental Death Benefit charges and Policy Administration Charges will be deducted from the fund value by cancellation of units. The Fund Management Charge will be priced in the unit value. 1. Revival: If the policyholder opts to revive the policy, the policy continues with all the benefits. 2. Complete withdrawal from the policy without any insurance benefit and rider benefits: In case the policyholder chooses to withdraw the policy or does not exercise any option, then the policy treatment would vary depending on the number of completed policy years. Discontinuance of premium within five years of inception of the policy: On discontinuance of premium, the fund value under the base plan (including top-ups) less applicable discontinuance charges less the outstanding loans along with interest will be switched to Discontinued Policy Fund. The insurance benefit, accidental death benefit and rider benefits ceases immediately. The income earned on the fund shall be apportioned to the discontinued policy fund. The proceeds of the discontinued policies shall be payable only on completion of five policy anniversaries. Discontinuance of premium after five years of inception of the policy: On discontinuance of premium, the fund value under the base plan (including top-ups) less applicable discontinuance charges less the outstanding loans with the interest, if any will be paid to the policyholder. Revival of policy after non-payment of due premiums If the due premiums are not paid within the grace period, a revival notice will be sent to the policyholder within fifteen days from the date of expiry of the grace period. The
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 57 | P a g e policyholder may revive a policy by the payment of the due premium(s) at any time within a period of 30 days from the date of receipt of the revival notice but before the maturity date of the policy subject to satisfactory medical and financial underwriting. In case the policyholder chooses to withdraw the policy or does not exercise any option and if the policy has not completed five years from the date of inception, the policy shall be treated as discontinued. Policyholder can revive the discontinued policy within two years from the date of discontinuance or expiry date of policy term, whichever is earlier, by paying all the outstanding premiums to the company If the basic plan is revived, the riders can be revived by paying the arrears of premiums with interest at the prevailing rate of interest. The current rate of interest is 9.0% p.a. This will be subject to satisfactory medical and financial underwriting. What if I want to discontinue/surrender the Policy? Surrender Value under the regular premium policy: The surrender Value under the single premium policy will be the fund value. Surrender value is acquired immediately on payment of the single premium. However, the surrender value will be payable after the completion of five policy anniversaries. There is no discontinuance charge under single premium policy. If the policyholder has availed loan under single premium policy, the loan outstanding and the interest on loan outstanding will be recovered first from the surrender value and the balance if any will be paid to the policyholder. Whenever full surrender value of basic plan is paid, the surrender value of any attaching top ups will also be paid. Once a policy is surrendered in full, it cannot be reinstated. Surrender Value under the top-up: The surrender Value under the top up will be the fund value. Surrender value is acquired immediately on payment of the top up premium. However, Surrender value of top up can be paid after the completion of five years from the date of payment of top up. There is no discontinuance charge on the top ups. The surrender value is therefore equal
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 58 | P a g e to the fund value under the top ups. Whenever full surrender value of basic plan is paid, the surrender value of any attaching top ups will also be paid. Foreclosure of the Policies in-force: For the policies in force, if anytime during the tenure of the policy but after five policy anniversaries, the fund value is less than the charges for the next month, the policy will be foreclosed by paying the fund value. Can I avail loan under this policy? Not Applicable Can I change the mode of premium payment? The mode of premium payment can be changed on the policy anniversary. Grace Period for payment of premiums There is a grace period of 30 days from the due date for payment of regular premiums. In case of monthly mode, the grace period is of 15 days. A policy lapses if premiums are not paid within the days of grace. C.4>ULIP {FLEXIBILITY.

In case the valuation day falls on a holiday, then the exercise will be done on the following working day. We reserve the right to value less frequently than daily in extreme circumstances, where the value of the assets may be too uncertain. In such circumstances we may defer valuation of assets until normality returns. Examples of such circumstances are: A.

  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 77 | P a g e ** ULIP vs Mutual Fund – Where should I invest? A very common question among investors which instrument is better – Ulips or Mutual Funds. Before you start thinking which instrument to invest, let‘s first understand these two financial instruments. What are ULIPs – Unit Linked Insurance Plans Popularly known as ―ULIPs‖, it is an investment option provided by Insurance Compa- nies. It is a single contract comprising of insurance cover with an investment benefit. The insurance company allots units to the ULIP investors and the net asset value (NAV) is calculated and declared on a daily basis. An investment in ULIP is divided into two parts – a) Life Cover Premium b) Investment. Premium paid in ULIP, certain portion goes for life cover and the remaining portion goes for investment. What is a Mutual Fund? Mutual Fund is an investment instrument which pools money from many investors and invest in (stocks, bonds, money market instruments). The mutual fund company allots units to the mutual fund investors and the current value of such investments is calcu- lated on a daily basis and the same is declared through the Net Asset Value. ULIP versus Mutual Fund. The basic difference between ULIP and Mutual fund is in terms of insurance cover. A ULIP provides a insurance component whereas a mutual fund is a pure investment product. Generally speaking, ULIPs are mutual funds with an insurance cover. ULIP = Mutual fund + Insurance cover Now after understanding the difference between ULIP and Mutual funds, let‘s under- stand in detail which is better investment option – ULIP or Mutual Funds. Parameters for comparison — ULIPs versus Mutual Funds a) ULIP versus Mutual Fund — Expenses Expenses incurred in a Mutual Fund is lesser than the expenses of ULIPs. The reason is expenses in a mutual fund is capped, there is a pre-set upper limit, whereas for ULIPs
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 78 | P a g e no upper limit in terms of controlling the expenses is set by the insurance company. b) ULIP versus Mutual Fund — Tax benefits Any investment made in ULIP qualifies under section 80C of income tax act, where an investor can save tax on Rs 1,00, 000. In case of mutual funds, only investment in ELSS (equity linked tax savings scheme) a specific type of mutual fund scheme qual- ifies for tax benefits under section 80 C. c) ULIP versus Mutual Fund — Portfolio disclosure Mutual fund houses are required to statutorily declare their portfolios on a quarterly basis, however there is no such statutory requirements for ULIPs. d) ULIP versus Mutual Fund — Return on investment As both the products are long term investment products, these products have given good returns to its investors. Many analysts‘ feels, from a long term view ULIP pro- vides better return than mutual funds. However this is not true in all cases, it all depends on the type of investment and the fund manager‘s skills in managing the funds. Considering all the above factors, a mutual fund investment is better than ULIPs. Insurance is meant for your future protection and it takes care of uncertainties in the future. However a mutual fund is meant for only investment. As we investors do not have the expertise to invest in the stock market and other financial instruments, through mutual funds it is possible. What is the best investment option? — ULIP vs Mutual Fund The best investment option available for anyone is — A low-cost term insurance (Insur- ance) and the remaining amount should be invested in a diversified equity mutual fund.
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 79 | P a g e **Debt ULIP versus Debt Mutual Funds, WHICH one is better? With the RBI cutting rates in response to positive news on the inflation front, debt markets have been witnessing a strong rally. Investors in long-term debt funds have been the biggest beneficiaries as NAVs of bond funds have appreciated significantly in response to the RBI‘s rate cuts. The yield on the benchmark 10-Yr government bond (gsec) fell to 7.11% levels by May-end from 7.99% levels at April-beginning. The rally tapered off once the rate cuts stopped and concerns escalated over the rupee and capital flight from Indian markets. Investors keen on making the most out of the bond rally have been partial to long-term debt funds. As the name suggests, such funds invest primarily in long-term bonds. When there is a rally in bond markets, long-term bonds witness the biggest decline in yields. Consequently, bond prices witness a surge. This is due to the inverse relationship between bond yields and prices. Another option available to debt investors is ULIPs. ULIPs or unit-linked insurance plans are launched by life insurance companies to give individuals an opportunity to invest in equity and debt markets. The plans are market- linked and an NAV is declared which captures the investment value of the portfolio net

Individuals who want to evaluate the available debt fund options must consider the following factors while making an investment decision: 1. Expenses - Margins in debt investments are thin, when compared to equities. So selecting a low cost debt investment is important. If two debt investments have comparable returns, then the one with the lower cost is preferable. The amount you will save in cost will eventually reflect in returns. Debt offerings of mutual funds are cost-effective relatively. Expense ratios of debt funds are capped at 2.25% by the regulator. It can go higher by 3.0% if the fund is being sold in Tier II and Tier III cities as required by the regulator. Although ULIP expenses were higher earlier on, they are competitive under the revised expense structure proposed by IRDA the insurance regulator. Now insurance companies can charge a maximum of 3% for a 10-year ULIP and 2.5% for a 15-year ULIP. However, debt funds do not have an entry load and there is an exit load only on premature redemptions. In effect, there is no commission paid out to mutual fund agents by the investor. With ULIPs there is a commission paid out to the insurance agent, which can be quite high. Investors looking at mutual funds have the option of buying a mutual fund scheme directly without the intervention of a advisor. There are direct plans for such investors. These plans have a different NAV from the regular plans. Direct plans can prove to be cheaper than regular plans by upwards of 50 basis points. The downside is they will have to make do without the assistance of a financial planner. 2. Insurance - Mutual funds are pure investment plans and do not have a life insurance element.
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 81 | P a g e ULIPs have an insurance element. It is not as high as a pure insurance cover (term plan). While some may find the insurance cover of a ULIP as an add-on, it may prove quite unnecessary for individuals who prefer to keep their investment and insurance portfolios separate. Also the insurance element has a cost associated with it. So individuals who do not want the insurance will nonetheless have to pay for it while buying a ULIP. 3. Tax benefit - Debt funds do not offer any tax benefit. Short-term gains on debt funds are added to income. Long-term gains are taxed at lower of 10% without indexation benefit and 20% with indexation benefit. ULIPs offer tax benefit at all three stages at the time of entry, income/appreciation in NAV and at the time of exit/redemption. This is known as the E-E-E tax advantage. This is the most significant manner in which ULIPs score over mutual funds. 4. Lock-in - Long-term debt funds do not have a lock-in. There may be an exit load on premature withdrawals within say 12 months of investment. ULIPs have a lock-in of 5 years over which period the individual must continue to pay his premiums. While a lock-in does have its benefits in terms of enforcing investor discipline, it is more useful in an equity-linked investment. By its nature, debt is volatile and a beyond a point a lock-in serves no real benefit and may even prove counterproductive. In our view, investor interests are best served by separating investment from insurance. An investment like a debt fund is more suitable vis-à-vis a debt ULIP. For insurance, individuals are better off seeking a pure insurance option - a term plan.

I have asked personal questions at last so that they do not become defensive. I have tried to know their performance i.e. whether they want to invest, where they want to invest, up to what amount and since when. D.3>SAMPLING METHOD AND SAMPLE SIZE �Introduction:- Any organization whether big or small, private or public need different types of information are to know its popularity. I have gathered secondary data and primary data and collected information from the combination of these two data. �Secondary data: - Secondary data consist of information that already exists somewhere, having been collected for another purpose.

I have taken a sample of 50 people. I have visited them personally to get data. �Sample size: - I have taken sample size of 50 respondents. Because the population is too large so it is difficult to survey. D.4>LIMITATIONS I am a human hang, so there is some limitation of the human hangs which is reflected in this research. The following are the limitation of this research study. 1) The sample size of 50 might not represent the perception of whole population, as the sample size is too small for total population of Ahmedabad city. 2) The opinion expressed by the respondents may be biased.
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 85 | P a g e 3) The attitude of the research might be biased. 4) One of the most influencing and most critical limitations is that I am not trained for the research study and this is my first study.

There are some limitations of this study. But in spite of their limitation I worked with the enthusiasm. And I tried to give the best results to the research of this report D.5> SWOT ANALYSIS SWOT analysis is the analysis of the internal and external factors, which have impact on the survival of any organization. Now let‘s make SWOT analysis for reliance Life Insurance Company Limited. ☻STRENGTHS: 1) Reliance Life Insurance Company Limited is the part of the Reliance Capital. 2) The brand name is enough to sell the products easily. 3) Private placement of Rs. 10,000 crs worth of securities with RBI by the government. Led to an improvement in market securities. 4) Strong liquidity from FII was the major reason for the up move. 5) Range of products 6) Reliance has a long and strong history of solvency, financial stability. ▼WEAKNESSES: 1) Newly established company, so people seems it risky. 2) Lack of staff. 3) Lack of advertisement, so most of the customers are not aware of the Reliance Life Insurance. ☼ OPPORTUNITY: 1) There is a vast untapped market in India. The life insurance penetration in India is approximately 2.5%.

  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 86 | P a g e 1) The main threat is from the other players who have grabbed approximately 15% of the market share. 2) As the government has scrapped the rebate on the life insurance premium, the people who used to invest in life insurance for the sole motive of tax benefit may turn to other instruments
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 87 | P a g e SECTION:E CONCLUSION E.1> EXPERIENCE My experience with reliance life insurance will always be grateful for me. I learned many things in RLI. The first thing I learned is to handle objections from the customers. Different type of scripts of RLI helps in this. Working on deadline for achieving target is most crucial process in this sector and I am thankful to my sales manager who were always behind me to support during initial call and helps me to complete my traninig. The go meet to reward successful AA and SM for the month is another example which clearly emphasizes that RLI has strong belief in maintaining a healthy relationship with their stakeholders. Overall ―Swot Analysis‖ was a fair attempt from me. During the project I was able to
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 88 | P a g e make 100 names. My telephonic conversation with the prospect always gave me positive direction to build my confidence and even in bad phase of response I learnt the art of making calmness. I shared a lot of activities with my colleagues. All the trainees from different background also remained a source of energy for my daily activities E.2>SUMMARY Life insurance business in terms of first year premium has shown a growth of more than 97% over the previous year and non life, or general insurance, is not far behind either, growing at 21% during 2011-12. In this market, competitive edge provided by product innovation can sustain only for a couple of months, since products can easily be cloned. Hence ―Swot Analysis‖ is the only process through which an insurer can have SCA over other competitor. Strategic approach for calling Nominators/Col/ prospect has several advantages through which company maintains integration of system. E.3>RECOMMENDATION RELIANCE LIFE INSURANCE as an insurance firm has very strong presence in india and is rapidly expanding its operations in india. After working on this project I feel that following are some of the ways in which the company can improve the current market base and selection procedure for AAs, the key revenue generating resource for the company: Increase awareness among the general public
  • Reliance Life Insurance A Reliance Capital Company 89 | P a g e  In survey I came to know only 23% people are heared about this company.  Only 10% people known about this company. It shows less brand image of company.  30% people experienced this company by taking policy.  But 37% people are unware about this company. It is because of lack of advertisement. Highlight the core strengths of the company like oldest firm in insurance sector, highest paid up capital, etc. Very less people know about highlights of the company. Firm is not well known though it is oldest firm. No one knows positive points of the company, like registered under companies act, six sigma and so on. Have a re-look at the existing product range and design products which can attract masses rather than just serving only classes.
