WHY SPECIALIZED INTERACTIVE SESSION ON INSURANCE MARKETING FIRMS

Efforts are being made by Finance Ministry and Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority (IRDA) to increase Insurance penetration in the country.

During February, 2015 Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority has released regulations to govern Insurance Marketing Firms. Details are available on https://www.irda.gov.in/ADMINCMS/cms/frmGeneral_NoYearLayout.aspx?page=PageNo2443This is a new and welcome development towards increasing the role of Insurance Intermediaries.

to upgrade themselves and increase the business manifold to take the benefit of growth taking place in the Districts/ Rural Area in the country.

We are aware of that existing Insurance intermediaries operating in the country are:

  • Insurance Agents
  • Insurance Brokerage Firms
  • Corporate Agents
  • Banc assurance

As per the policy of the Government of India the concept of Financial Inclusion has to be taken to all parts of the country.

Insurance Marketing Firms (IMF) Regulations are a great opportunity for any entrepreneur or existing firm for setting up IMF in one district to be selected by the entrepreneur.
