INTRODUCTION Insurance provides financial protection against a loss arising out of happening of an uncertain event.

A person can avail this protection by paying premium to an insurance company. A pool is created through contributions made by persons seeking to protect themselves from common risk. Premium is collected by insurance companies which also act as trustee to the pool. Any loss to the insured in case of happening of an uncertain event is paid out of this pool. Insurance works on the basic principle of risk-sharing. A great advantage of insurance is that it spreads the risk of a few people over a large group of people exposed to risk of similar type.

Definition: Insurance is a contract between two parties whereby one party agrees to undertake the risk of another in exchange for consideration known as premium and promises to pay a fixed sum of money to the other party on happening of an uncertain event (death) or after the expiry of a certain period in case of life insurance or to indemnify the other party on happening of an uncertain event in case of general insurance. -Insurance Act 1938

The party bearing the risk is known as the 'insurer' or 'assurer' and the party whose risk is covered is known as the 'insured' or 'assured'. Concept of Insurance The concept behind insurance is that a group of people exposed to similar risk come together and make contributions towards formation of a pool of funds. In case a person actually suffers a loss on account of such risk, he is compensated out of the same pool of funds. Contribution to the

pool is made by a group of people sharing common risks and collected by the insurance companies in the form of premiums.

Lets take an example to understand how general insurance actually works:

INDUSTRIAL PROFILE

The control on general insurance business started with the insurance act 1938, setting up the government control. In 1968 it was amended to add more provisions to and also Add Tariff Advisory Committee. This Tariff Advisory Committee now fixes the rates terms and conditions for many branches of general insurance like Fire, Engineering, Marine, Hull and Workmen compensation insurance. In 1972, the General Insurance (Business Nationalisation) Act was passed. It set up GIC and its subsidiaries. 107 private companies were merged into GIC and its subsidiaries and these companies included both Indian and foreign companies. General Insurance Corporation was formed as company under the Companies Act unlike LIC, which was setup as corporation. The GIC has only one office in Mumbai and is the holding companies for all the subsidiaries. It formulates general policy guidelines for general insurance industry and control the investment and reinsurance policy of the companies. GIC had four subsidiary companies, namely (with effect from Dec'2000, these subsidiaries have been de-linked from the parent company and made as independent insurance companies. 1. The Oriental Insurance Company Limited 2. The New India Assurance Company Limited 3. National Insurance Company Limited 4. United India Insurance Company Limited.

Insurance is a federal subject in India. The primary legislation that deals with insurance business in India is: Insurance Act 1938, and Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority Act 1999. Three Phases of De-Tariffing Indias general insurance industry has undergone de-tariffing in three phases: 1994 -- marine cargo, personal accident, health, banker liability and aviation 2005-06 -- marine hull segment 2007 -- fire, engineering and motor own damage (OD). However, the de-tariffing did not immediately allow for free pricing. Instead, insurers were required to follow the file and use method, whereby they were expected to file a charter of proposed rates, which was then approved by IRDA. The restrictions on price discounts during the initial periods were intended to ensure orderly price adjustments. They were removed in January 2008. The only segment that remains under a tariff regime is the third party motor business, although there has been a large upward revision in this areas premium rates by regulators in recent times. Moreover, commercial third party motor business, which has traditional Chart 1: Premium Public vs Private by segment before removal of tariff

Chart 2: Premium Public vs Private by segment after removal of tariff

Charts 1 and 2 compare the premium income of the private and public sectors. Before the removal of tariffs, fire, engineering and motor own damage (OD) contributed a much greater proportion of business for private players than was the case for public firms. Market Share Redistribution Due to the effectiveness of private marketing strategies, the market share of public insurers has consistently declined. Chart 3 depicts the trend over the last five years.
Page | 8

Given a faster growth rate, the market share of the private sector is catching that of the public sector and the two will likely converge over the medium term. In the past, private insurers had aggressively targeted the more profitable (and tariffed) corporate fire and engineering businesses by combining them with discounted offers on de-tariffed products, for example, personal accident & health, marine cargo and hulls.

were the private corporates are not interested such as; Universal Health Insurance Scheme For BPL Families, Janata Personal Accident, Bhagyashree Child Welfare Policy, RajaRajeshwari Mahila Kalyan Yojna Policy, Mother Teresa Women & Children Policy, Jan Arogya Bima Policy, Cattle & Livestock Insurance, Agricultural Pumpset Insurance, Poultry Insurance, Gramin Accident Policy, Plantation Insurance. In these policies they charging only nominal premium and in some policies they are providing subsidies from Govt of India. 1. The companys marketing activities are much focussed on personnel policies.

6. The company facing cutthroat competition from both private and

public sector companies. Their major competitors include The New India Assurance Company Limited, National Insurance Company Limited, Reliance General Insurance Company Limited,
Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company Limited,

ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company Limited. 1. Lack of awareness existing among the customers regarding policy terms, perils covered, discounts available, procedure for applying claims. 2. Customers doesnt having much idea regarding how claims are calculating, conditions regarding claims calculation, due to this reason some customers are complaining that the insurance companies are good in collecting premium but not good in paying claims.

Page | 93

SUGGESTIONS

1. The social welfare policies are designed for serve the people these

policies not contributing much profit so they can go for low budget advertisement, and then only these will reach among peoples. 2. The company can also focus on the marketing of commercial policies because it will contribute more premium and profit.
3. The company can go for awareness programme regarding to the

social policies, because they can serve the community in better manner by these policies. 4. For meeting the competition they can Rather than try to satisfy everyone, marketers start with market segmentation and develop a market offering that is positioned in the minds of the target market.
The company must analyze the patterns of segmentation in a

market to get a sense of their positioning alternatives and that of the competitors,
Targeting strategies can the company use to select and enter

the most attractive market segments, The company can update their portfolio timely with reference to competitors products.
1. Once
