Not many of us are aware of the fact that the life insurance industry of India is as old as
it is in any other part of the world. Oriental Life Insurance Company was the first Indian
life insurance company, which was started in 1818 at Kolkata. And within a span of 100
to 150 years, the number grew more than 350 (over 250 in life and about 100 in non-
life), mainly with regional focus, flourished all across the country. However, the
Government of India, concerned by the unethical standards adopted by some players
against the consumers, nationalized the industry in two phases in 1956 (life) and in 1972
(non-life). The insurance business of the country was then brought under two public
sector companies, Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and General Insurance
Corporation of India (GIC). Subsequently with the economic reforms that were ushered
in India in early nineties, the Government set up a Committee on Reforms (the Malhotra
Committee) in April 1993 to suggest reforms in the insurance sector. The Committee
recommended throwing open the sector to private players to usher in competition and
bring more choice to the consumer. The objective was to improve the penetration of
insurance as a percentage of GDP, which remains low in India even compared to some
developing countries in Asia.
Reforms were initiated with the passage of Insurance Regulatory and Development
Authority (IRDA) Bill in 1999. IRDA was set up as an independent regulatory authority,
which has put in place regulations in line with global norms. So far in the private sector,
12 life insurance companies and 9 general insurance companies have been registered.
Till then insurance was kind of privilege or necessity ought to be meant for the high
salaried and riches of this country. As also a necessity only for some in case they needed
to ensure tax savings, tax manipulations etc.
But with the coming of private players, rules of the game have changed. Never were
common men so rigorously targeted. It is today an industry which is growing at the rate
more than 25%. “In the last five years, the growth (of the Indian insurance industry) has
been of the order of 25% plus.” And the remarkable point yet is that the penetration
level is only 2%. “The Insurance penetration level (in India), which was always stuck near
an average of 1.5%, has today crossed the 2% mark and is likely to get perched at about
3%.” Imagine the kind of potential it has for the years to come! May be this is one of the
major reasons why almost all global players are too keen to be in India. Another could
be the saturation of insurance markets in many developed economies.
India has the low percentage and per capita penetration of Insurance Industry.
Moreover, with the kind of GDP growth rate which is expected to be in the range of 8 to
10% for the next decade and the increasing level of education among the general public
regarding insurance and related products, the insurance market can only head upwards.
The current market size of non-life insurance industry is US $ 2 billion and is expected to
reach US $ 10 billion. Similarly, in the life insurance sector, it is expected to grow from
nearly US $ 3 billion to US $ 15 billion.
The changes those have been bought in by privatization in the insurance sector can be
categorized into followings;
1. New Market Development
2. New Product Development
3. Customer Centric Approach
4. New Channel Development
New Market Development: It a logical step to look for new and newer markets when
competition grows. Naturally, with as many as 16 players, latest being Bharti-AXA and
six still in the offing, the competition has never been so intense. Advertising campaigns,
awareness campaigns and other promotional tools players are ensuring that they make
dent into right markets by educating prospects. The strategy to hunt for new markets
has been aptly supplemented by new product offerings.
New Product Development: There has been a plethora of new and innovative products
offered by the new players, mainly from the stable of their international partners. The
main concept underlying new product development has been of two kinds, Need-Based
positioning development and Variety –Based development. Now, the customers have
tremendous choice from a large variety of products from pure term (risk) insurance to
unit-linked investment products. Customers are offered unbundled products with a
variety of benefits as riders from which they can choose. More customers are buying
products and services based on their true needs and not just traditional money-back
policies, which is not considered very appropriate for long-term protection and savings.
Customer Centric Approach: CRM is a buzz word so is the customer satisfaction.
People are courteous, processes are being made simple. Customer is treated as king in
true sense. Service, be it pre-selling or be it post-selling, is readily available at a click
away! International best practices in service and operational efficiency has started to
make an inward way giving away the bureaucratic, cumbersome difficulties. Albeit, the
use of latest technologies have complimented the process even further. Trained and
technically qualified sales force and advisors are now concentrating on sound financial
consultancy and need based selling. Prompt and accurate response and turnaround
times in specific areas such as delivery of first policy receipt, policy document, premium
notice, final maturity payment, settlement of claims etc. are some of the sea changes
that this industry is experiencing.
New Channel Development: Sales and distributions channels also have gone a paradigm
shift. Till recently, Agents were the only mode of distribution of life insurance products.
But today a number of innovative alternative channels are being utilized by insurance
marketers such as bank assurance, brokers, the internet and direct marketing. It is
predicted that the wide spread of bank branch network in India could lead to Bank
assurance emerging as a significant distribution mechanism. However, as of today,
agents still continue to be the main distribution channel. Some life insurance companies
focusing on rural markets have gone one step further in adopting new innovative means
of distributions. “Instead of appointing agents as is done typically, they have used gram-
sevaks in different villages across the country to promote life insurance and act as their
As the days pass off, we are likely to see many more actions in this arena. The
Government is also keen to continue with its financial sector reforms. The insurance
Industry is now hot and happening! The marketing wizards are breaking their heads to
think for ideas to penetrate new markets, financial wiz-kids wracking their brains for
new product categories and lot more actions are taking place even behind the scene.
But whatever happens, one thing is for sure that the customers are going to be the
greatest beneficiary of this revolution.
TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT SCENARIO IN INSURANCE
Favorable economic climate and number of other factors such as, growing urbanization,
increasing consumerism, rise in the standard of living, increase in financial services for
people living in rural areas, etc has increased the demand for wide range of financial
products that has led to mutually beneficial growth to the banking sector and economic
growth process. This was coincided by technology development in the banking
operations. Today most of the Indian cities have networked banking facility as well as
Internet banking facility. Some of the major players in the banking sector are State Bank
of India, HDFC Bank, Citibank, ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank, etc.
In the Insurance sector also, rapid expansion has created about 5 lakh job opportunities
approximately in the past five years. These openings are mainly in the field of insurance
advisors or marketing agents. The eligibility criteria for these jobs is graduation with
some experience in marketing or become insurance agents after completing school but
this needs some relevant training. Earlier there were no training programs as such for
insurance agents but on-the-job training only that was given once the new agent was
appointed. But now the scenario has been changed, with the coming up of big players
like ICICI Life Insurance, ICICI Lombard, HDFC Life Insurance, Tata AIG General Insurance,
etc in this sector, people who've had some formal training are preferred while
recruitment because it can be helpful in the insurance field. However, only the
insurance degree in this field does not guarantee success. To be successful an agent
must have strong interpersonal, networking, and communication skills.
Number of opportunities in Banking and Insurance sector has increased than ever
before. With this rapid expansion and coming up of major players like ICICI, HDFC, UTI,
Bajaj Allianz, etc in the sector, the need of human resource development has increased

From the graph we conclude that employees at aviva were had a very good experience
of training & development programme organised in their organisation. Most of the
employees are haapy attending such training sessions because they get extra perks also
for the same. The employees told that the company provides them free refreshments
during the training and development programme.
TIMINGS OF THE TRAINING:
Timing was somewhat a issue in these training programmes. These sessions were
organised in after job period therefore the schedule of the employees become hectic.
Alnd for married female employees it becomes more difficult. The employees gave
feedback that the timings of the programme should be flexible and moreover these
programmes should be held on weekends.
AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT:
Technique is the factor of training programme on which the company should
focus more for improvement. The employees gave feedback that to enhance the
efficiency of this programme the training should be related to real life events rather
than working in a closed classroom. The second issue for improvement was Mentors.
The employees reported that some mentors in the training programme were too
relaxed that they hardly bothered about the results of the programme.
SATISFACTION AND PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL:
The above graph showed that these programmes hardly show any effect on the
satisfaction and performance of the employees. They attend these programmes just to
have more perks. As we analyzed and talked with employees we found that they were
very relaxed about these programmes.

satisfied by attending it. Also, there learning and experience in the same was above
TIMINGS OF THE TRAINING
The timings of the training mostly for female employees were not convinient. As
training was conducted after the job hours therefore Most of the employees reported
there hectic schedule after training. Many employees said that the company never takes
comfortability of employees in consideration while organizing training sessions.
AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT:
The employees experienced that in such training programmes culture is the area
which needs improvement for greater partcipation and satisfaction. Female employees
reported that due to these training programmes they had to work late shifts and
therefore some of them faced cases of unnecessary harassement.

showed a positive response while telling about these programmes. All were very
exciting when we asked about these initiatives taken by the company. TATA-AIG also
invited family members of the employees on these tarining programmes for common
lunch and dinner.
The employees were neutral talking about the timings of these training prgrammes.
Some employees were having issues with the timings but that were because of their
family problems. The female employees gave feedback just opposite from what we got
from other companies i.e. they were purely satisfied with the timings and schedule of
Areas of Improvement:
Again, Technique and Mentors were the two areas which need improvement in
these training programmes. The employees stated that the mentors were not prepared
well while imparting them training that caused a technique mismatch in the training
Satisfaction and Performance Appraisal:
The above graph is self explanatory. It shows that these training
programmes have little or no impact on performance of the employees. As in all other
organisations people join these programmes to have more perks.
NATIONAL INSURANCE CORPORATION
National Insurance Company Limited was incorporated in 1906 with its Registered office
in Kolkata. Consequent to passing of the General Insurance Business Nationalisation Act
in 1972, 21 Foreign and 11 Indian Companies were amalgamated with it and National
became a subsidiary of General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC) which is fully
owned by the Government of India. After the notification of the General Insurance
Business (Nationalisation) Amendment Act, on 7th
August 2002, National has been de-
linked from its holding company GIC and presently operating as a Government of India
National Insurance Company Ltd (NIC) is one of the leading public sector insurance
companies of India, carrying out non life insurance business. Headquartered in Kolkata,
NIC's network of about 1000 offices, manned by more than 16,000 skilled personnel, is
spread over the length and breadth of the country covering remote rural areas,
townships and metropolitan cities. NIC's foreign operations are carried out from its
branch offices in Nepal and Hong Kong.
Befittingly, the product ranges, of more than 180 policies offered by NIC cater to the
diverse insurance requirements of its 10 million policyholders. Innovative and
customized policies ensure that even specialized insurance requirements are fully taken
The paid-up share capital of National is Rs.100 crores. Starting off with a premium base
of 500 million rupees (50 crores rupees) in 1974, NIC's gross direct premium income has
steadily grown to 35236.7 million rupees (3523.67 crores rupees ) in the financial year
National transacts general insurance business of Fire, Marine and Miscellaneous
insurance. The Company offers protection against a wide range of risks to its customers.
The Company is privileged to cater its services to almost every sector or industry in the
Indian Economy viz.
Banking, Telecom, Aviation, Shipping, Information Technology, Power, Oil & Energy,
Agronomy, Plantations, Foreign Trade, Healthcare, Tea, Automobile, Education,
Environment, Space Research etc.
While NIC has a significant market share in the non life insurance business all over the
country, NIC has a large market presence in Northern and Eastern India making it the
market leader in these two zones.
The steady growth in premium income has been commensurately matched by profits
over the years. As of March 2006, NIC's general reserve stood at 11085.8 million rupees
(1108.58 crores rupees) with an asset value of 138064.4 million rupees (13806.44 crores
rupees) signaling strong financial fundamentals. No wonder than that NIC has been
accorded “AAA/STABLE” financial strength rating by CRISIL rating agency, which reflects
the highest financial strength to meet policyholders’ obligations.
Two set of questionnaires designed for the same. One would be for the employees per
se to understand their perceptions regarding the training and development practices of
their organization in terms of relevance, regularity, effectiveness, adequacy of T & D etc.
The other would be a list of open ended questions which would be addressing to the HR
managers (in an interview) to understand the T & D initiatives taken by the organization
and the kind of career progression which can happen in the finance function.
The overall experience of employees at NIC in T&D Sessions as represented by
the above graph is above average. Most of the employees marked either Excellent or
very good. There were some employees also who were not satisfied with the T&D
Programmes and said that it is only a Time and Energy Waste. One of the employee
quoted “We gain nothing from it”.
The Timings of the Training at NIC are a bit cumbersome. The company calls
employees on their vacations for these T&D Sessions which make them incomfortable.
Most of the employees disagree when asked about the convinience of the timings.
Areas of Improvement:
In NIC Technique is in the main focus of Area for Improvement. The employees
reported that during classroom training Audio-Visual aids should also be provided for
better learning and understanding.
Satisafaction and Performance Appraisal:
As represented by the above graph the employees at NIC also have the same
opinion as in every other organization that these T&D sessions have no impact on their
performance. They all say but even then they attend it because sometime it is
mandatory and sometimes for better perks
1. Training and development is mostly periodically and sometimes depend upon need of

10. Training is now the important tool of Human Resource Management to control the
attrition rate because it helps in motivating employees, achieving their professional and
personal goals, increasing the level of job satisfaction, etc.
11. Rewards for improvement in performance.
1. The training and development should be more employee oriented that ultimately
leads to organization enrichment.
2. Organization should consider time according to employees suitability.
3. Organization should go for finance domain trainings especially due to present
1. It was not easy to get appointments as executives were not spared for such
2. We were not allowed to interact with the employees by the HR & Senior
Managers in all the organizations and that is reflected in the number of filled
3. We could interact only with a few managers and tried to extract as much as
information as possible.
4. Time was also a constraint.
5. Due to non-availability of appointments we have to analyze on the basis of

our identity to interview.
9. We could not do quantitative analysis as we could not interact with many
