CPI(M) to protest against Swarup Committee report

LIC agents to oppose move to hike FDI in insurance sector
‘Policies of Union Government pose a threat to LIC’
Proposal to scrap promotional activities termed ‘ridiculous’

MANGALORE: The Life Insurance Corporation Agents Organisation of India (LICOA) resolved to oppose the proposed legislations of the United Progressive Alliance government during its two-day State conference that began here on Sunday.
The LICOA, which is affiliated to the Centre for Indian Trade Unions (CITU) and is backed by the Communist Party of India (Marxist), has concluded that the policies of the Union Government posed a grave threat to the LIC.
Speaking to presspersons on the sidelines of the conference, Basudev Acharia, CPI (M) MP from Bankura, West Bengal, said that his party and the unions aligned with it would launch a nation-wide agitation against the D. Swarup Committee report.
The report, which was submitted to the Union Government on December 3, recommends scrapping of the commission being paid to LIC from 2011. It favours complete stoppage of LIC promotional activities such as advertisements as the committee felt that those interested in securing an insurance policy would approach the corporation, if need be. Arguing that the recommendations of the committee were aimed at finishing off this 53-year-old Rs. 9-lakh-crore public sector behemoth, Mr. Acharia said that nearly 10 lakh LIC agents would be rendered jobless if the recommendations were to be adopted. He termed “ridiculous” the suggestion to scrap promotional activities.
Raising concerns over the alleged “capitulation” of the Union Government to multi-national insurance lobbies, he said there was a “conspiracy to destroy LIC” so as to prepare a ground for the entire of foreign players in the insurance sector.
Mr. Acharia said that he had introduced a private member’s Bill in Parliament demanding job security, pension and welfare fund for LIC agents.

Trust thy name is LIC



Background
The year 1956 witnessed a defining moment in the history of India's Social Engineering landscape. It marked the beginning of a new phase in the life insurance industry in India, which was, then, a heterogeneous group consisting of companies at varying stages of development, big and small, solvent and insolvent, efficient and inefficient.
Binding these groups into one was a challenging task, and perhaps, the biggest ever attempted in the history of global capitalist era. The merged entity was called 'Life Insurance Corporation of India', with two tiny hands protecting a lamp as its logo.


Who could have imagined that a tiny flame kindled on the September 1,1956 would stand for warmth of security and care for millions of Indians in course of time? The flame has really stood the test of time for over 53 years and is today an icon of trust and stability for over 25 Crores policyholders.
The year 1999 saw the opening up of the insurance sector. Today, there are 21 other players in the market. Still, LIC continues to be the front runner in the race, holding a dominant share in the Indian Life Insurance Industry.
Started with a Life Fund of Rs 380.61 cr, its corpus has grown to Rs 8,07,317 cr as on March 31st, 2009. At the end of December of 1957, the total new business underwritten by LIC was 7,94,585 policies and sum assured was Rs 281.90 cr. This has grown to 3.58 Crore Policies and sum assured of Rs 3,90,053 cr during the fiscal year of 2008-09. When the Corporation took over on the appointed day (September 1st 1956), it had assets under management amounting to Rs 348.68 cr, which have now risen to a stupendous figure of Rs 8,73,551.35 cr (figures as at 31/03/2009).

Network
As on Oct 2009, LIC had 2,048 fully computerized Branch offices, 109 Divisional offices and 8 Zonal offices and 915 Satellite offices apart from its Corporate office in Mumbai. All the offices of the Corporation are fully computerized and networked. Further, to enhance customer convenience, there is a facility to pay premiums On-Line.

Claim of Same Life- We paid, Private repudiated


Death Claims amounting Rs.7,73,744 paid by LIC of India to Ms.Ragini Dhruve wife of deceased Mr.Kalpesh Dhruve.

Mr.Kalpesh Dhruve also had a policy with Max New York Life Insurance Co.

Max New York repudiated the (same) claim stating that Mr.Kalpesh Dhruve suppressed the fact that he had high BP.

Even though the death occurred after 3 years from the commencement of Risk of his policy with Max New York!

The details, i.e. copy of LIC's Cheques, repudiation letter of Max New York are given here in the pdf file.

Download details here!

This is a good example for the service offered by private insurance companies!

Spread this to all!

Normally, we get irritated whenever NB Dept. asks for additional requirements. But, only because we insist and get all necessary details and requirements before completion, we are able to settle claims speedier!

Private companies accept all without insisting on requirements; But insist all the requirements at the time of claim! They even utilizing it to repudiate the claims!!

LIC always searches for reasons to settle claims in favour of policyholders!

Private Companies search for reasons to repudiate!!

Insurance Bill could leave agents poorer

Over 30 lakh insurance agents in the country may suffer a huge jolt this Parliament session, should the provisions relating to agency commission in the insurance amendment Bill get approval.
Because the Bill does away with Section 40A of the Insurance Act, 1938, which prescribes the amount of commission an insurance company can pay its agents.
The agents, currently at loggerheads over the recommendations of the D Swarup Committee, could be in for a double whammy if the panel’s recommendations on agency commission and related provisions in the Bill pass muster.
The Bill also omits Section 40, which talks about the total commission that can be paid in the first five years as well as section 44, which concerns hereditary commission payable to agents in the event of the death of the agent or on quitting the company.
Further, section 45, which talks about the right to question and punish an agent in the event of a policyholder’s death within 2 years, has been altered to read 5 years.
Going by industry sources, the Bill has omitted Section 40A with the intention of bringing it under the direct purview of the insurance regulator, which could come up with a commission formula in due course.
“To be frank, if one calculates the commission for the total sum assured, then for a conventional plan of Rs 1 lakh cover, the commission works out to 5% of the total premium paid over a period of 20 years. Agency commission ranges from 0.3% in unit linked plans to 5% in conventional plans if calculated on the sum assured,” R S Ramanujam, general secretary, Life Insurance
Agents Federation of India, south central zone said.
“We are against it (provisions in the Bill) and this is not supportive of agents. We want all the classes to remain unchanged as per the Insurance Act 1938 unless a better alternative is given. Removing these sections will definitely panic the agents,” he said.
A section of agents working for private sector insurance companies said they have come together under one platform to jointly protest the implementation of the provisions proposed in the Bill.

MPs seek fair deal to LIC agents

Congress and Trinamool Congress members in the Lok Sabha on Monday made a strong plea for a fair deal to around 50 lakh LIC agents in the country, protesting against a move by the Corporation to deregister their services.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Jai Prakash Agarwal (Cong) said these agents have been doing valuable work of spreading the insurance net far and wide without being provided any office accommodation and get an average meagre monthly commission of Rs.3,000.

He was supported by several party members including Datta Meghe and those from Trinamool Congress.

BJP member Bishnu Pada Ray demanded that the honorarium for angawadi workers in Andaman and Nicobar islands be raised substantially.

Private Insurance cos not in good health; see drop in biz volumes

The first half of this fiscal will be something private insurance companies want to put behind them. New business volumes have dropped 15% over the period. An edelweiss report blames this fall on shrunken risk appetite at the retail level, and a lack of demand for unit linked insurance plans.
-TV18’s Avni Raja report.
The stock markets may have traded firm in recent months and even hit 2009-highs, but private are not smiling. They say investor sentiment is still low, and premium inflows have been hit.
As per an Edelweiss report, only insurance giant LIC has managed to clock a volume growth of 16% in its new business, and that's because it banks hugely on its traditional products. The report adds that private players, who demand largely on unit-linked insurance plans (ULIPs), have not fared well.
Of the 23 private insurance players, only two have reported growth in new business. All the others have lost new business—ICICI Prudential saw a 36% drop, Bajaj Allianz saw volumes fall 38%, and Kotak's new business fell 42%.
The main reason for this, the report says, is a fall in demand for ULIPs. It says players will have to revert to traditional products to regain this lost momentum. One main reason for the better performance of traditional products is that IRDA's charge cap does not apply to them. So insurers continue to offer higher commissions on traditional policies, and these products find favour with agents and distributors.

Life insurance agents protest against D. Swarup Committee's recommendations


New Delhi, Dec 11: Thousands of agents of the Life Insurance Agent's Federation of India on Friday staged a protest against the recommendations of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) Chairman D. Swarup, in the national capital.

D. Swarup Committee's suggestion to the Government to make insurance a fees based profession instead of the current commission based did not go down well with the federation.

Addressing the media, Chairman of the federation, H.M. Jain, demanded that the Government should scrap the recommendation, as this will adversely affect the insurance profession in the country.

"He (D. Swarup) has suggested that commission should be deducted from premium and insurance should be made fees base. I think that insurance has not yet developed in India. Leave alone India, even in those countries where insurance is developed, this system hasn't been employed. In India we have just reached 12-15 percent of the insurable populace, from where we collect Rs. 2 lakh crore and hand it over to the Government," Jain said.

"If this is made fees base, then insurance, which has to be sold because nobody comes out to buy it, this profession will die. Together with this, those companies and all the money invested in country's development will go for a big loss," he added.

Jain also said that if benefiting the investors is what is driving the Government, then it can be achieved though cost reduction measures.

"If the Government and Swarup is serious that policy holder should be benefited then the payment should be made at the mortality. LIC (Life Insurance corporation) and private companies should reduce their expenses, increase the bonuses, include agents into servicing, so that the cost can be reduced and people will be benefited," Jain said. 


Senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Ramgopal Yadav also attended the protest and assured the protesting agents that his party will make sure that the report will not get the support of the parliament.

"This will decide the fate of lakhs of people and the government is moving against them with this proposal. While foreign companies flourish, Bhartiya Jeevan Beema Nigam (Life Insurance Corporation of India), which has invested crores of wealth of the country in industries, the Government is intent on destroying it," Yadav said.

"We'll raise the issue in the parliament. I'll also speak to the Finance Minister and say that this report which is coming up against lakhs of people whichever committee has recommended it, this should not come in the parliament and neither should it be passed," he added.

Insurance agents to stage dharna

Press Trust of India / New Delhi December 10, 2009, 18:55 IST

About 25 lakh life insurance agents would stage a dharna tomorrow at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to oppose the recommendations of a government appointed panel on elimination of upfront commission paid to advisers.
"The protest would be against Swarup Committee Report that threatens to end the very existence of insurance agents in the country," Life Insurance Agents' Federation of India President H M Jain told reporters here.
"Implementation of the recommendation will make the role of 25 lakh life insurance agents working with LIC and private insurers redundant and adversely affect crores of people who are dependent on them," he said.
The Committee on Investor Awareness and Protection, headed by interim PFRDA Chairman D Swarup, in its consultation paper had proposed elimination of upfront commission paid to insurance agents by April 2011.
"Immediately the upfront commissions embedded in the premium paid (to agents by insurance companies) be cut to not more than 15 per cent of the premium. This should fall to 7 per cent in 2010 and become nil by April 2011," a consultation paper prepared by the committee had said.
In a country like India insurance is not bought but it is sold, Jain said, adding that the elimination of commission would hurt the industry and starve the nation of long-term capital for development.

Swarup sticks on; IRDA determined to oppose

After some debate on its consultation paper, the Swarup committee submitted its final recommendations to the government on Wednesday.

Despite vehement opposition from the insurance industry, the committee has stuck to its guns and recommended the no-entry load structure for insurance products. This report will now be forwarded to the high level coordination committee of regulators (which had appointed the Swarup committee), which will decide how and if at all these recommendations are to be implemented.

The insurance regulator -IRDA-maintains that these recommendations are not in the industry’s best interest and has said it will do whatever it takes to ensure that the recommendations are not implemented.
