    INTRODUCTION

    INSURANCE

    "Insurance is a contract between two parties whereby oneparty called insurer undertakes in exchange for a fixed sum calledpremiums, to pay the other party called insured a fixed amount ofmoney on the happening of a certain event."

    Insurance is a protection against financial loss arising on thehappening of an unexpected event. Insurance companies collectpremiums to provide for this protection. A loss is paid out of thepremiums collected from the insuring public and the InsuranceCompanies act as trustees to the amount collected.

    For Example, in a Life Policy, by paying a premium to the Insurer,the family of the insured person receives a fixed compensation onthe death of the insured.

    Similarly, in a car insurance, in the event of the car meeting withan accident, the insured receives the compensation to the extentof damage.

    It is a system by which the losses suffered by a few are spreadover many, exposed to similar risks.

    LIFE INSURANCE

    Life insurance is a critical part of your long term financialplanning. Every person with dependents should have life insurance.

    Life Insurance is particularly important if you are the sole breadwinnerfor your family. The loss of you and your income could devastate yourfamily. Life insurance will ensure that if anything happens to you, yourloved ones will be able to manage financially.

    Life insurance is all about making sure your family has adequatefinancial resources to make those plans and dreams come true. Itprovides financial protection to help your family or business tomanage after your death.

    SUB TYPES OF LIFE INSURANCE:

    Whole life policies - Cover the insured for life. The insured doesnot receive money while he is alive; the nominee receives the sumassured plus bonus upon death of the insured..

    Endowment policies - Cover the insured for a specific period. Theinsured receives money on survival of the term and is not coveredthereafter.

    Money back policies - The nominee receives money immediately

    on death of the insured. On survival the insured receives money atregular intervals during the term. These policies cost more thanendowment with profit policies.

    Annuities / Children's policies - The nominee receives aguaranteed amount of money at a pre-determined time and notimmediately on death of the insured. On survival the insuredreceives money at the same pre-determined time. These policiesare best suited for planning children's future education andmarriage costs.

    Pension schemes - are policies that provide benefits to theinsured only upon retirement. If the insured dies during the term ofthe policy, his nominee would receive the benefits either as a lumpsum or as a pension every month.

    Since a single policy cannot meet all the insurance objectives, oneshould have a portfolio of policies covering all the needs.

    INSURANCE GENERAL:

    Every asset has a value and the business of general

    insurance is related to the protection of economic value of assets.Assets would have been created through the efforts of owner,which can be in the form of building, vehicles, machinery and othertangible properties. Since tangible property has a physical shapeand consistency, it is subject to many risks ranging from fire, alliedperils to theft and robbery.

    Concepts of insurance have been extended beyond the coverageof tangible asset. Now the risk of losses due to sudden changes incurrency exchange rates, political disturbance, negligence andliability for the damages can also be covered.

    But if a person judiciously invests in insurance for his property priorto any unexpected contingency then he will be suitablycompensated for his loss as soon as the extent of damage isascertained.

    SUB TYPES OF GENERAL INSURANCE:

    Property Insurance: The home is most valued possession. Thepolicy is designed to cover the various risks under a single policy. Itprovides protection for property and interest of the insured andfamily.

    Health Insurance: It provides cover, which takes care of medicalexpenses following hospitalization from sudden illness or accident.

    Personal Accident Insurance: This insurance policy providescompensation for loss of life or injury (partial or permanent)caused by an accident. This includes reimbursement of cost oftreatment and the use of hospital facilities for the treatment.

    Travel Insurance: The policy covers the insured against variouseventualities while traveling abroad. It covers the insured against

    personal accident, medical expenses and repatriation, loss ofchecked baggage, passport etc.

    Liability Insurance: This policy indemnifies the Directors orOfficers or other professionals against loss arising from claimsmade against them by reason of any wrongful Act in their Officialcapacity.

    Motor Insurance: Motor Vehicles Act states that every motorvehicle plying on the road has to be insured, with at least Liabilityonly policy. There are

    two types of policy one covering the act of liability, while othercovers insurers all liability and damage caused to one's vehicles.

    Since a single policy cannot meet all the insurance objectives, one should have

    a portfolio of policies covering all the needs

    INDUSTRY PROFILE:

    THE HISTORY OF INSURANCE:

    As with so many things in so many things in so many facts of ourlife, insurance too was born out of a primal need and shaped by socio

    economic realities of the time. The story goes back to around 2100 BC,the time ancient civilization of Babylon and a business practice calledBottomry. For all practical purposes a form of marine insurance,bottomry enabled ship owners to borrow money against their ships topay for the trip. With piracy rampant of high seas, traders andseafarers were reluctant to sale to other lands for fear of their lives andgoods. Bottomry give them some semblance of security. Thearrangement was that only if their ship returned did trader have torepay the loan, along with interest, which was pegged at an abovemarket rate for risk covered. So, if their ship failed to make it back,they did not have to repay loan, there by covering some or the loss.

    The insurance sector in India has come a full circle from being anopen competitive market to nationalization and back to a liberalizedmarket again. Tracing the developments in the Indian insurance sectorreveals the 360 degree turn witnessed over a period of almost twocenturies.

    The business of life insurance in India in its existing form startedin India in the year 1818 with the establishment of the Oriental LifeInsurance Company in Calcutta.

    trace its roots to the Triton Insurance Company Ltd., the first generalinsurance company established in the year 1850 in Calcutta by

    the British.

TheMalhotra committee was set up with the objective of complementingthe reforms initiated in the financial sector.

    The reforms were aimed at creating a more efficient and competitivefinancial system suitable for the requirements of the economy keepingin mind the structural changes currently underway and recognizingthat insurance is an important part of the overall financial systemwhere it was necessary to address the need for similar reformsIn 1994, the committee submitted the report and some of the keyrecommendations included:

    down to 50% Government should take over the holdings of GIC and its

    subsidiaries so that these subsidiaries can act as independentcorporations

But at the same time, the committee felt the needto exercise caution as any failure on the part of new playerscould ruin the public confidence in the industry.

    Hence, it was decided to allow competition in a limited way bystipulating the minimum capital requirement of Rs.100 crores. Thecommittee felt the need to provide greater autonomy to insurancecompanies in order to improve their performance and enable them to

    act as independent companies with economic motives. For thispurpose, it had proposed setting up an independent regulatory body.

    Our ambition from as far back as October 1995, was to be the firstprivate company to re-enter the life insurance market in India. On the23rd of October 2000, this ambition was realised when HDFC StandardLife was the only life company to be granted a certificate ofregistration.

    HDFC are the main shareholders in HDFC Standard Life, with 81.4%,while Standard Life owns 18.6%. Given Standard Life's existinginvestment in the HDFC Group, this is the maximum investmentallowed under current regulations.

    HDFC and Standard Life have a long and close relationship built uponshared values and trust. The ambition of HDFC Standard Life is tomirror the success of the parent companies and be the yardstick bywhich all other insurance company's in India are measured.
