Reliance life insurance

  1. 1. 1. INTRODUCTION TO LIFE INSURANCE MEANING ‘Life Insurance is a contract for payment of a sum of money to the person assured (or failing him/her, to the person entitled to receive the same) on the happening of the event insured against.’ Usually the insurance contract provides for the payment of an amount on the date of maturity or at specified dates at periodic intervals or at unfortunate death if it occurs earlier. Obviously, there is a price to be paid for this benefit. Among other things, the contract also provides for the payment of premiums by the assured. ‘Life Insurance’ is universally acknowledged as a tool to eliminate risk, substitute certainty for uncertainty and ensure timely aid for the family in the unfortunate event of the death of the breadwinner. In other words, it is the civilized world’s partial solution to the problems caused by death. In a nutshell, life insurance helps in two ways: dealing with premature death, which leaves dependent families to fend for themselves and old age without visible means of support. NEED FOR LIFE INSURANCE The need for life insurance comes from the need to safeguard our family. If you care for your family’s needs you will definitely consider insurance. Today insurance has become even more important due to the disintegration of the prevalent joint family system, a system in which a number of generations co-existed in harmony, and a system in which a sense of financial security was always there as there were more earning members. Factors such as fewer numbers of earning members, stress, pollution, increased competition, higher ambitions etc are some of the reasons why insurance has gained importance T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 1
  2. 2. and where insurance plays a successful role. Insurance provides a sense of security to the income earner as also to the family. Buying insurance frees the individual from unnecessary financial burden that can otherwise make him spend sleepless nights. The individual has a sense of consolation that he has something to fall back on. Insurance is a must also because of the uncertain future adversities of life. Accidents, illnesses, disability etc are facts of life, which can be extremely devastating. Other than the hospitalization, medication bills these may run up it’s the aftermath of the incident, the physical well being of the individual that has to be taken into consideration. Will the individual be in a position to earn as before? But what if he is not? Disability can be taken care of by insurance. Your family will not have to go through the grind due to your present inability. Insurance today has opened up new vistas for every section of society. Even for the village farmer insurance holds a lot of potential. Considering how dependent our agricultural system is on the monsoon, the farmer sees a dim future. The uncertainty of the monsoon too can be taken care of by insurance. Looking at the advantages of an insurance policy a number of farmers have gone in for insurance. Insurance has become a necessity today. It provides timely financial as also rewards with bonuses. LIFE INSURANCE PROVIDES: The proceeds accruing from Life Insurance policy can be utilized for:  Final expenses resulting from death  Guaranteed maintenance of lifestyle  Replacement of income  Mortgage or liquidation payments  Costs of education  Estate and other taxes T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 2
  3. 3.  Continuity & security of interests 2. LIFE INSURANCE MARKET PRESENT SCENARIO The Life Insurance market in India is an underdeveloped market that was only tapped by the state owned LIC till the entry of private insurers. The penetration of life insurance products was 19 percent of the total 400 million of the insurable population. The state owned LIC sold insurance as a tax instrument, not as a product giving protection. Most customers were under- insured with no flexibility or transparency in the products. With the entry of the private insurers the rules of the game have changed. The 12 private insurers in the life insurance market have already grabbed nearly 9 percent of the market in terms of premium income. The new business premiums of the 12 private players has tripled to Rs 1000 crore in 2002- 03 over last year. Meanwhile, state owned LIC's new premium business has fallen. Innovative products, smart marketing and aggressive distribution.That's the triple whammy combination that has enabled fledgling private insurance companies to sign up Indian customers faster than anyone ever expected. Indians, who have always seen life insurance as a tax saving device, are now suddenly turning to the private sector and snapping up the new innovative products on offer. The growing popularity of the private insurers shows in other ways. They are coining money in new niches that they have introduced. The state owned companies still dominate segments like endowments and money back policies. But in the annuity or pension products business, the T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 3
  4. 4. private insurers have already wrested over 33 percent of the market. And in the popular unit-linked insurance schemes they have a virtual monopoly, with over 90 percent of the customers.The private insurers also seem to be scoring big in other ways- they are persuading people to take out bigger policies. For instance, the average size of a life insurance policy before privatisation was around Rs 50,000. That has risen to about Rs 80,000. But the private insurers are ahead in this game and the average size of their policies is around Rs 1.1 lakh to Rs 1.2 lakh- way bigger than the industry average. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE The history of life insurance in India dates back to 1818 when it was conceived as a means to provide for English Widows. Interestingly in those days a higher premium was charged for Indian lives than the non-Indian lives as Indian lives were considered more riskier for coverage. The Bombay Mutual Life Insurance Society started its business in 1870. It was the first company to charge same premium for both Indian and non-Indian lives. The Oriental Assurance Company was established in 1880. The General insurance business in India, on the other hand, can trace its roots to the Triton (Tital) Insurance Company Limited, the first general insurance company established in the year 1850 in Calcutta by the British. Till the end of nineteenth century insurance business was almost entirely in the hands of overseas companies. Insurance regulation formally began in India with the passing of the Life Insurance Companies Act of 1912 and the provident fund Act of 1912. Several frauds during 20's and 30's sullied insurance business in India. By 1938 there were 176 insurance companies. The first comprehensive legislation was introduced with the Insurance Act of 1938 that provided strict State Control over insurance business. The insurance business grew at a faster pace after independence. Indian companies strengthened their hold on this business but despite the growth that was witnessed, insurance remained an urban phenomenon. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 4
  5. 5. The Government of India in 1956, brought together over 240 private life insurers and provident societies under one nationalized monopoly corporation and Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) was born. Nationalization was justified on the grounds that it would create much needed funds for rapid industrialization. This was in conformity with the Government's chosen path of State lead planning and development. The insurance business continued to thrive with the private sector till 1972. Their operations were restricted to organized trade and industry in large cities. The general insurance industry was nationalized in 1972. IMPORTANT MILESTONES IN THE LIFE INSURANCE BUSINESS IN INDIA: 1912: The Indian Life Assurance Companies Act enacted as the first statute to regulate the life insurance business. 1928: The Indian Insurance Companies Act enacted to enable the government to collect statistical information about both life and non-life insurance businesses. 1938: Earlier legislation consolidated and amended to by the Insurance Act with the objective of protecting the interests of the insuring public. 1956: 245 Indian and foreign insurers and provident societies taken over by the central government and nationalized. LIC formed by an Act of Parliament- LIC Act 1956- with a capital contribution of Rs. 5 crore from the Government of India. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 5
  6. 6. 3. INSURANCE SECTOR REFORMS In 1993, Malhotra Committee- headed by former Finance Secretary and RBI Governor R.N. Malhotra- was formed to evaluate the Indian insurance industry and recommend its future direction. The Malhotra committee was set up with the objective of complementing the reforms initiated in the financial sector. The reforms were aimed at creating a more efficient and competitive financial system suitable for the requirements of the economy keeping in mind the structural changes currently underway and recognizing that insurance is an important part of the overall financial system where it was necessary to address the need for similar reforms. In 1994, the committee submitted the report and some of the key recommendations included: i) Structure Government stake in the insurance Companies to be brought down to 50%. Government should take over the holdings of GIC and its subsidiaries so that these subsidiaries can act as independent corporations. All the insurance companies should be given greater freedom to operate. ii) Competition Private Companies with a minimum paid up capital of Rs.1bn should be allowed to enter the sector. No Company should deal in both Life and General Insurance through a single entity. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 6
  7. 7. Foreign companies may be allowed to enter the industry in collaboration with the domestic companies. Postal Life Insurance should be allowed to operate in the rural market. Only one State Level Life Insurance Company should be allowed to operate in each state. iii) Regulatory Body The Insurance Act should be changed. An Insurance Regulatory body should be set up. Controller of Insurance- a part of the Finance Ministry- should be made independent iv) Investments Mandatory Investments of LIC Life Fund in government securities to be reduced from 75% to 50%. GIC and its subsidiaries are not to hold more than 5% in any company (there current holdings to be brought down to this level over a period of time) v) Customer Service LIC should pay interest on delays in payments beyond 30 days. Insurance companies must be encouraged to set up unit linked pension plans. Computerization of operations and updating of technology to be carried out in the insurance industry. The committee emphasized that in order to improve the customer services and increase the coverage of insurance policies, industry should be opened up to competition. But at the same time, the committee felt the need to exercise caution as any failure on the part of new players could ruin the public confidence in the industry. Hence, it was decided to allow competition in a limited way by stipulating the minimum capital requirement of Rs.100 crores. The committee felt the need to provide greater autonomy to insurance companies in order to improve their performance and enable them to act as independent companies with economic motives. For this purpose, it had proposed setting up an independent regulatory body- The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 7
  8. 8. Reforms in the Insurance sector were initiated with the passage of the IRDA Bill in Parliament in December 1999. The IRDA since its incorporation as a statutory body in April 2000 has fastidiously stuck to its schedule of framing regulations and registering the private sector insurance companies. Since being set up as an independent statutory body the IRDA has put in a framework of globally compatible regulations. The other decision taken simultaneously to provide the supporting systems to the insurance sector and in particular the life insurance companies was the launch of the IRDA online service for issue and renewal of licenses to agents. The approval of institutions for imparting training to agents has also ensured that the insurance companies would have a trained workforce of insurance agents in place to sell their products. 4. RELIANCE LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY Founder of Reliance Corporation SH. DHIRUBHAI H AMBANI Few men in history have made as dramatic a contribution to their countrys economic fortunes as did the founder of Reliance, Sh. 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 Rs 14,000). Over the next three and a half decades, he converted this fledgling enterprise into a Rs 60,000 crore colossus—an achievement which earned Reliance a place on T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 8
  9. 9. 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 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.

OVERVIEW OF SURVEY As per survey conducted by me followings are the findings: 1. Do you have life insurance plan of any company? T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 49
  50. 50. 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% 50% Reliance Aviva ICICI Any Other Series1 As Reliance Life Insurance Company is a very new private company in insurance industry. Therefore, it has hardly 5% of customers as far as my survey is concerned. But the policies of the reliance life insurance company are very good. Thus in future it will grow at a faster rate. Aviva life insurance company is also a private company & new in insurance sector. From the survey that I had conducted it has 14% of customers. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 50
  51. 51. As far as ICICI Prudential is concerned, it is very popular company & many people have it’s plans. It is also very familiar to the general public. It’s a one of the leading private sector company in insurance sector. 2. Which type of Company do you prefer? Private Co. Public Co. In 21st century there is a tremendous increase in private sector companies in any field. Private companies have been trying their best from head to feet to expand their activities and business. However they still have to keep patient as till they do not get public confidence even though they are providing better return and services. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 51
  52. 52. This is because that Public sector Companies have already captured the market & people have more trust on public sector companies. It is difficult for a private sector companies to capture the market. 3. Which type of policy you have taken? As the Reliance Life Insurance is a new company very few people have yet taken a policy from it. But whoever taken among them most people have taken a endowment plan of Reliance. 4.

  54. 54. RELIANCE LIFE TO TARGET RELIANCE COMMUNICATIONS SUBSCRIBER BASE Mumbai, Aug. 17 Reliance Life Insurance plans to tap Reliance Communications' 2.5-crore telephony subscriber base to market its products. The company is considering a series of options to leverage its relationship with Reliance Communications. "We could have a joint marketing campaign, a joint product offering, or we may simply mine the data base to send mailers or make calls to Reliance mobile customers," said Mr K.V. Srinivasan, Chief Operating Officer, Reliance Life Insurance. However, a joint product or a co-branded solution would require approval from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority, he added. Customers of RWorld, the information and entertainment portal of Reliance Communications, would also be able to pay premiums through a bank account, provided the bank is listed on the network. Reliance Life Insurance officials, however, offered no comment when asked whether there would be an arrangement for payment of commission to Reliance Communications. As an alternative channel for distribution, insurance companies usually tie up with banks. In the case of bancassurance, where there is a corporate agency tie-up, the commission could range from 5 per cent to 40 per cent of first-year premium depending on the commission loaded on to the product at the time of registration with IRDA. Mr. P. Nandagopal, CEO, Reliance Life, said that the company hoped to break even by 2009-2010. It registered a growth of 627 per cent in Q1 of the current fiscal, its new business premium touching Rs 132 crores. MULTI-PRONGED NETWORK T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 54
  55. 55. "We would like to keep our portfolio balanced with 50 per cent from Unit linked plans and the rest from traditional products," said Mr. Nandakumar. The company would follow a multi-pronged distribution network. "We have an agency force of 30,000; and we are in talks with banks for bancassurance as a distribution channel," he said. Reliance Life Insurance on Thursday launched an endowment plan with a 15-year term and a maximum sum-assured of up to Rs 10 lakhs. Called `Connected to Life', the policy does not require customers to undergo a medical check. 7. CONCLUSION I hope that this project has stipulated the reader’s interest in the term of reliance life insurance company and their products. I have certainly found the task of organizing my knowledge of the subject and more of the information from the primary and secondary sources to make this project report, a rewarding one. T.Y.B COM (BANKING & INSURANCE) 55
  56. 56. New instruments are being developed at an emerging pace. There can be little doubt the important new ideas and new results will continue to emerge. From this project I had come to know about insurance products and how they work in life. Insurance companies are growing at a faster pace. There is an immense competition in insurance market. To survive in the competitive market one have to bring new products, services, plans & policies to attract customers and to satisfy their needs & wants. At last I want to say, Reliance Life Insurance Company is a new company and any new company will take a time to popular in the market. So, Reliance will also take a time to number one in the insurance industry. 8.
