Life insurance (Life Assurance in British English) is a type of insurance. As in
all insurance, the insured transfers a risk to the insurer. The insured pays a
premium and receives a policy in exchange. The risk assumed by the insurer is the
risk of death of the insured.
How life insurance works
There are three parties in a life insurance transaction; the insurer, the insured,
and the owner of the policy (policyholder), although the owner and the insured are
often the same person. For example, if John Smith buys a policy on his own life, he
is both the owner and the insured. But if Mary Smith, his wife, buys a policy on
John's life, she is the owner and he is the insured. The owner of the policy is called
the grantee (he or she will be the person who will pay for the policy). Another
important person involved is the beneficiary. The beneficiary is the person or
persons who will receive the policy proceeds upon the death of the insured. The
beneficiary is not a party to the policy, but is designated by the owner, who may
change the beneficiary unless the policy has an irrevocable beneficiary designation.
With an irrevocable beneficiary, that beneficiary must agree to changes in
beneficiary, policy assignment, or borrowing of cash value.
7 | P a g e
The policy, like all insurance policies, is a legal contract specifying the terms and
conditions of the risk assumed. Special provisions apply, including a suicide clause
wherein the policy becomes null if the insured commits suicide within a specified
time for the policy date (usually two years). Any misrepresentation by the owner or
insured on the application is also grounds for nullification. Most contracts have a
contestability period, also usually a two-year period; if the insured dies within this
period, the insurer has a legal right to contest the claim and request additional
information before deciding to pay or deny the claim.
The face amount of the policy is normally the amount paid when the policy
matures, although policies can provide for greater or lesser amounts. The policy
matures when the insured dies or reaches a specified age. The most common
reason to buy a life insurance policy is to protect the financial interests of the
owner of the policy in the event of the insured's demise. The insurance proceeds
would pay for funeral and other death costs or be invested to provide income
replacing the deceased's wages. Other reasons include estate planning and
retirement. The owner (if not the insured) must have an insurable interest in the
insured, i.e. a legitimate reason for insuring another person’s life. The insurer (the
life insurance company) calculates the policy prices with an intent to recover
claims to be paid and administrative costs, and to make a profit. The cost of
insurance is determined using mortality tables calculated by actuaries. Actuaries
are professionals who use actuarial science which is based in mathematics
(primarily probability and statistics). Mortality tables are statistically based tables
showing average life expectancies. The three main variables in a mortality table are
age, gender, and use of tobacco. The mortality tables provide a baseline for the cost
of insurance. In practice, these mortality tables are used in conjunction with the
health and family history of the individual applying for a policy in order to
8 | P a g e
determine premiums and insurability. The current mortality table being used by life
insurance companies in the United States and their regulators was calculated
during the 1980s. There is currently a measure being pushed to update the
mortality tables by 2008.
The current mortality table assumes that roughly 2 in 1,000 people aged 25
will die during the term of coverage. This number rises roughly quadratic ally to
about 25 in 1,000 people for those aged 65. So in a group of one thousand 25 year
old males with a $100,000 policy, a life insurance company would have to, at the
minimum, collect $200 a year from each of the thousand people to cover the
expected claims. The insurance company receives the premiums from the policy
owner and invests them to create a pool of money from which to pay claims, and
finance the insurance company's operations. Contrary to popular belief, the
majority of the money that insurance companies make comes directly from
premiums paid, as money gained through investment of premiums will never, in
even the most ideal market conditions, vest enough money per year to pay out
claims. Rates charged for life insurance increase with the insured's age because,
statistically, a people are more likely to die as they get older.

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
therefore 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
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 capita 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.
The insurance market registered growth in the Asian region even though
India’s share in global insurance is less than 0.5% (1988) as compared to USA
23 | P a g e
(24.2%) and Japan (21%). Studies have reveled that in an emerging market, as
disposable income rises, Insurance premiums as a ratio of GDP shoots up. The
confederation of Indian Industry projected a growth of Life Insurance premiums
from Rs. 350 Billion at present to Rs.140 Billion. The growth of non-life
insurance premium is expected to increase from 75 billion to 375 billion. Out of
which, only 10% is tapped by the existing insurer.
Insurance even more than banking is a volume game. A very exclusive
approach in view is unlikely to provide meaningful numbers. Currently, insurance
is bought for the purpose of tax-benefits. A higher percentage of business is in
the rural market. The share of rural new business insurance total new business is
55% in terms of policies and 47% in terms of sum assured. However, this needs
to be viewed in the light of some recent issues that have been raised regarding as
to what constitutes the rural market. Therefore, private insurers will be best
served by middle market approach, targeting the customer segments that are
How many Indians are aware that LIC has more than 60Products and GIC
has more than 180Products? Not only there is a reduction in the premiums of
Life Insurance products have long overdue since Indian morality rate has
decreased three folds in the last 50years. There is also scope to increase the yield
on life insurance policies (presently 6%) with proper risk management in place.
It is been debated that insurance business does not produce profit in the
first five years cross subsidization is a feature of Indian market. Even the first
portfolio vote that is considered profitable, cross subsidizes other departments.
24 | P a g e
Tariffs reduction is likely to reduce profits; further insurers have to institute
proper claims management progress in order to extract efficiencies. At present
life insurance business in the country is taxed at 12.5% of the profit in financial
year. The government is soon to present a new model of taxing life insurance
companies at international rates.
New entrants should be well advised to look ahead to the stage where
brand strength will be a competitive advantage and sketch their alliances
accordingly. In fact, we believe that alliance related to distribution rather than to
produce or technology will prove most valuable in the long run.
Banks and financial companies will emerge, as attractive distribution
channel for this insurance trend will be led by two factors, which already apply in
other world market. First Banking food insurance, fund management and other
financial services companies are being to increase their profitability and provide
maximum value to their customers. Therefore, they are themselves looking for
a range of products to distribute.
In other market notably Europe; this has resulted in bank assurance. Bank
entering into the insurance business in India to bank hope to maximize expensive
existing network by selling a range of products more of a loss alliance between
insurance and bank than a formal ownership. Some Indian entrants like ICICI,
HDFC and Reliance hope to ride their existing network and customer bases.

While making a study we very often look for what type of research
methodology is to be used in this type of study. For implementation of a proper
research methodology we have to first understand the meaning of research.
Research is a process with the help of which new concepts arises. It is the
increase in the actual knowledge stock. It can be called as movement from
known to unknown and vice-versa. It is also a continuous process. It is a scientific
as well as systematic process, which includes defining and redefining the
problem to develop hypothesis, to collect and define the information/data, to
analysis the information and bring out the mother of Discovery. An individual
makes the effort in research and society or public takes its benefits because the
results are usually generalized.
The word data means any raw information, which is either quantitative
or qualitative in nature, which is of practical or theoretical use. The task of data
collection begins after a research problem has been defined and research design
chalked out. While deciding about the method of data collection, the researcher
should keep in mind that there are two types of data primary and secondary.
Primary data: -
This is those, which are collected afresh and for the first Time, and thus
happen to be original in character. There are many ways of data collection of
primary data like observation method, interview method, through schedules,
pantry Reports, distributors audit, consumer panel etc. The Team Managers and
27 | P a g e
employees of both the Department were consulted to get information about
procedure of both the online and off line share trading. But the method used by
us for the primary data collection was through questionnaires.
For the collection of primary data I used questionnaire method. A formal list of
questions, which are to be asked, is prepared in a questionnaire and questions
are asked on those bases. There are some merits and demerits of this method.
These as under: -
1. Low cost even when universe is large.
2. It is free from bias of interviewer.
3. Respondents have proper time to answer.
4. Respondents who are not easily approachable can also be reachable.
5. Large samples can be made.
2. Secondary data: -
These are those data, which are not collected afresh and are used earlier also
and thus they cannot be considered as original in character. There are many
ways of data collection of secondary data like publications of the state and
central govt., reports prepared by researchers, reports of various associations
connected with business, Industries, banks etc. And the method, which was used
by us, was with the help of reports of the company.

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 term Investment'. They can also
focus on an insurance amount of Rs. 1 – 2 lakhs with 'money back
policies'. Hence, the market has potential. The private and foreign
insurance companies that are taking immediate steps can tap it easily
