Irda allows insurance for markets
In 2011-12, the total collection of premiums by life insurance companies was R2,87,072 crore compared with R2,91,639 crore in the previous year, a drop of 1.5%. Premiums have been sluggish ever since August 2010, when the regulator slashed the commissions that agents could charge on unit-linked insurance Plans (Ulips). While earlier the bulk of the premiums — more than 70% — came into Ulips, that share is now down to 15%. The premiums that were invested in Ulips fell 36% 2011-12 over the previous year.
