PREFACE
The importance of an academic course would gain advantage and
acceptance of the true form, only through practical experience. Hence it
is quite necessary to put the theories into talk. It is rigidly accepted that
the theory widens one’s thinking horizons viz. Concepts of marketing
philosophies, but practice indicates the modern marketing and used in
variety of settings of products.

The summer training programmers are designed to give the


manager the future of the corporate happenings and work culture. These
real life situations are entirely different from the stimulated exercise
enacted in an artificial environment inside the summer training
programmers and designed, so that the manager to tomorrow do not feel
ill case when the time comes to shoulder responsibilities. Practical
exposure for the MBA students is very necessary because what they
study in the classroom is not the reality. Situation in the market is
unknown and very much unpredictable. So the practical experience is
very much necessary this is made possible with the summer training
project in Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Co. in marketing related to search
for the Potential Insurance Consultants.

All organizations involves into business with some objective and


one of the objectives is to endorse product or service which they
produce. In my marketing project I tried to fid out the potential
Insurance Consultants through questionnaire for the Bajaj Allianz Life
Insurance Co. The product for the insurance company is its policies
which company sale through its Insurance Consultants. So its quite clear
that there will be as many Insurance Consultants. There will be increased
sales.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

At the present time of cut throat competition in every industry


every company want to top the chart and want to show as big as possible
figure of profits in its balance sheet. It is quite clear today that at
present time the growth of any organization is possible only with the
help of hard working and well focused staffs that are the backbone of
any organizations.

It was my great pleasure that I did my summer training from Bajaj


Allianz Life Insurance Co. where I got to know that in Insurance
industry the skills of the man power matters most and increasing number
of Insurance Consultants help the organization to increase its issuance of
policies which in turn result in growth for the organization. So it is quite
clear that Insurance Consultant’s matter most for the Bajaj Allianz Life
Insurance Co.

My job was to create the database for the organization so that the
number if Insurance Consultant’s could be increased. My job was to
approach the individuals who are interested in joining the organization
as Insurance Consultant, within the limitations like related to age,
related to qualification, and then his/her details with the help of
questionnaire. I visited various areas of Delhi, Ghaziabad in order to
meet different types of people.

WHAT IS LIFE INSURANCE

First of all we should come to know that what is Life Insurance.


The different definitions describing life Insurance are as:-

“Insurance in which the risk insured against is the death of a


particular person, the insured, upon whose death while the policy is in
force, the insurance company agrees to pay a stated sum or income to the
beneficiary. Life Insurance pays a specified sum to the beneficiaries
upon the death of the insured. It is generally used to provide cash to your
family in the event of your death. There are several types of life
insurance whole life insurance provides a lifetime of protection as long
as you pay the premiums to keep the policy active. They also accrue a
cash value and thus offer a savings component. Term life insurance
provides protection only during the term of the policy and the policies
are usually renewable at the end of the term. Insurance on human lives
including endowment benefits, additional benefits in event of death or
dismemberment by accident or accidental means, additional benefits for
disability, and annuities”.

LIFE INSURANCE INDUSTRY IN INDIA

Many may not be aware that the life insurance industry of India is
a s old as it is in any other part of the world. The first Indian Life
Insurance Company was the Oriental life Insurance Company, which was
started in India in 1818 at Kolkata. A number of players (over 250 in life
and about 100 in non-life) mainly with regional focus flourished all
across the country. However, the Government of India, concerned by the
unethical standards adopted by some players against the consumers,
nationalized the industry in two phases in 1956 (life) and 1972 (non-
life). The insurance business of the country was then brought under two
public sector companies, Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and
General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC).

With such a large population and the untapped market area of this
population Insurance happens to be a very big opportunity in India.
Today it stands as a business growing at the rate of 15-20 percent
annually. Together with banking services, it adds about 7 percent to the
country’s GDP. In spite of all this growth the statistics of the penetration
of the insurance in the country is very poor. Nearly 80% of Indian
populations are without Life Insurance cover and the Health Insurance.
This is an indicator that growth potential for the insurance sector is
immense in India. It was due to this immense growth that the regulations
were introduced in the insurance sector and in continuations “Malhotra
Committee” was constituted by the government in 1993 to examine the
various aspects of the industry. The Committee recommended throwing
open the sector to private players to usher in competition and bring more
choice to the consumer. The objective was to improve the penetration of
insurance as a percentage GDP, which remains low in India even
compared to some developing countries in Asia. The key element of the
reform process was Participation of overseas insurance companies with
10
26% capital. Creating a more efficient and competitive financial system
suitable for the requirements of the economy as the main idea behind
the reform.

11
A BRIEF HISTORY

The origin of insurance is very old. The time when we were not
even born; was has sought some sort of protection from the unpredictable
calamities of the nature. The basic urge in man to secure himself against
any form of risk and uncertainty led to the origin of insurance.

The insurance came to India from UK; with the establishment of


The Oriental Insurance Corporation in 1818. the Indian Life Insurance
company act 1912 was the first statutory body that started to regulate the
Life Insurance business in India. By 1956 about 154 Indian, 16 foreign
and 75 provident firms were been established in India. Then the central
government took
over these companies and as a result the LIC was formed. Since then LIC
has worked towards spreading Life Insurance and building a wide
network across the length and the breath of the country. After the
liberalization the entrance of foreign players has added to the
competition in the market.

The General Insurance business in India, on the other hand, can


trace its roots to the Triton Insurance Company Ltd, the first General
Insurance Company established in the year 1850 in Calcutta by the
British. In 1957 General Insurance Council, a wing of the Insurance
Association of India, frames a code of conduct for ensuring fair conduct
and sound business practices. In 1972 the General Insurance Business in
India with effect from 1 s t January 1973. it was after this that 107
insurers amalgamated and grouped into four companies viz. the National
Insurance Company Ltd, the New India Assurance Company Ltd, the
Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. GIC incorporated as a company .

12
INSURANCE SECTOR REFORMS
In 1993, Malhotra Committee headed by former Finance Secretary
and RBI Governor was formed to evaluate the Indian industry and give
its recommendations. The committee came up with the following major
provisions:-
 Private Companies with a minimum paid up capital of Rs. 1 bn
should be allowed to enter the industry.
 Foreign companies may be allowed to enter the industry in
collaboration with the domestic companies.
 Only one state level Life Insurance Company should allow to
operate in each state.

Reforms were initiated with the passage of Insurance Regulatory


and Development Authority (IRDA) Bill in 1999. IRDA was set up as an
independent regulatory authority, which has put in place regulations in
line with global norms.

IRDA : The IRDA since its incorporation as a statutory body has been
framing regulations and registering the private sector insurance
companies. IRDA being an independent statutory body has put a
framework of globally compatible regulations .

13
INSURANCE MARKET IN INDIA

By any yardstick, with about 200 million middle class households,


presents a huge untapped potential for players in the insurance industry.
Saturation of markets in many developed economies has made the Indian
market even more attractive for global insurance majors. With the per
capital income in India expected to grow at over 6% for the next 10 years
and with improvement in awareness levels, the demand for insurance is
expected to grow at an attractive rate in India. An independent
consulting company, the Monitor Group has estimated that the Life
Insurance market will grow.

WINDS OF CHANGE
Reforms have marked the entry of many of the global insurance
majors into the Indian market in the form of joint ventures with Indian
companies. Some of the keys names are AIG, New York Life, Allianz,
Prudential, Standard Life, Sun Life Canada and Old Mutual. The entry of
new players has rejuvenated the erstwhile monopoly player LIC. Which
has responded to the competition in an admirable fashion by launching
new products and improving service standards.

Market Expansion :
There has been an overall expansion in the market. This has
been possible due to improved awareness levels thanks to the large
number of advertising campaigns launched by all the players. The scope
for expansion is still unlimited as virtually all the players are
concentrating on large cities and towns – except by LIC to an extent
there was no significant attempt to tap the rural markets.

14
New Product Offerings :
There has been a plethora of new players, mainly from the stable
of their international partners. Customers have tremendous choice from a
large variety of products from pure term insurance to unit-linked
investment products. Customers are offered unbundled products with a
variety of benefits as riders from which they can choose. More customers
are buying products and services based on their true needs and not just
traditional money-back policies, which is not considered very
appropriate for long-term protection and savings. However, there are still
some key new products yet to be introduced – e.g. health products.

Customer Service :
Not unexpectedly, this was one area that witnessed the most
significant change with the entry of new players. There is an attempt to
bring in international best practices in service and operational efficiency
though use of latest technologies. Advice and need based selling is
emerging through much better trained sales force and advisors. There is
improvement in response and turnaround times in specific areas such as
delivery of first policy receipt, policy document, premium notice, final
maturity payment, settlement of claims etc. However, there is a long way
to go and various customer surveys indicate that the standards are still
below customer expectation levels .

Channels of Distribution :
Till two years back, the only mode of distribution of life insurance
products was through Agents. While agents continue to be the
predominant distribution channel, today a number of innovative
alternative channels are being offered to customers. Some of them are
bancassurance, brokers, the internet and direct marketing. Though it is
too early to predict, the wide spread of bank branch network in India

15
could lead to bancassurance emerging as a significant distribution
mechanism.

The introduction of private players in the industry has added to the


colors in the dull industry. The initiatives taken by the private players
are very competitive and have given immense competition to the on time
monopoly of the market LIC. Since the advent of the private players in
the market the industry has seen new and innovative steps taken by the
players in this sector. The new players have improved the service quality
of the insurance. As a result LIC down the years have seen the declining
phase in its career. The market share was distributed among the private
players. LIC market share has decreased from 95% (2002-03) to 82%
(2004-05).

The following companies has the market share of the life insurance
industry.

CURRENT SCENARIO OF THE
INSURANCE INDUSTRY IN INDIA

India with about 200 million middle class household shows a huge
untapped potential for players in the insurance industry. Saturation of
markets in many developed economies has made the Indian market even
more attractive for global insurance majors. The insurance sector in
India has come to a position of very high potential and competitiveness
in the market.

Innovative products and aggressive distribution have become the


say of the day Indians, have always seen Life Insurance as a tax saving
device, are now suddenly turning to the private sector that are providing
them new products and variety for their choice.

Life Insurance industry is waiting for a big growth as many Indian


and Foreign companies are waiting in the line for the green signal to
start their operations. The Indian Consumer should be ready now because
the market is going to give them all array of products, different in price,
features and benefits. How the customer is going to make his choice will
determine the future of the industry.

CUSTOMER SERVICE
Consumers remain the most important centre of the insurance
sector. After the entry of the foreign players the industry is seeing a lot
of competition and thus improvement of the customer service in the
industry. Computerization of operations and updating of technology has
become imperative in the current scenario. Foreign players an bringing
in international best practices in service through use of latest
technologies. The one time monopoly of the LIC and its agents are now

17
going through a through revision and training programs to catch up with
the other private players.

DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS
Till date insurance agents still remain the main source through
which insurance products are sold. The concept is very well established
in the country like India but still the increasing use of other sources is
imperative. It therefore makes sense to look at well – balanced,
alternatives channels of distribution.

LIC has already well established and have an extensive


distribution channel and presence. New players may find it expensive
and time consuming to bring up a distribution channel to have an
advantage.

At present the distribution channels that are available in the


market are:

 Direct Selling
 Corporate Agents
 Group Selling
 Brokers and Cooperative Societies
 Bancassurance

To make all these channels a success the companies have to be


very alert and skillful to know how to use these channels in a proper
way. Bancassurance is on of the most upcoming channels of distribution.

18
BANCASSURANCE
India has an extensive bank network established over the years.
What Insurance companies have to do is to just take advantage of the
customer’s long-standing trust and relationships with banks. This is a
mutually beneficial situation as banks can also expand their range of
products on offer to customers, while the insurance company will also
earn profits from the exposure. Another advantage is that banks, with
their network in rural areas, help to fulfill rural and social obligations
stipulated by the

Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA)


recently. Insurance companies should see bancassurance as a tool for
increasing their market penetration in India. It is also good for the one
who sees bancassurance in terms of reduced price, high quality product
and delivery at doorsteps. Everybody is a winner here. The creation of
bancassurance operations has made an important impact on the financial
services industry at large. This is though a new concept but it has gained
a lot of importance in the industry at present and has a great future.

PRODUCT INNOVATION
Customers have tremendous choice from a large variety of
products from pure term insurance to unit-linked investment products.
Customers are offered unbundled products with a variety of benefits as
riders from which they can choose. More customers are buying products
and services based on their true needs and not just traditional money-
back policies, which is not considered very appropriate for long-term
protection and savings.

19
RURAL MARKETING
Rural India seems to have an appetite for mobile phones,
computers, and cars and to add to it we have insurance. In India with the
private players having entered into the insurance industry, the expected
explosion in job opportunities may not actually happen but for them the
catchments area is the opportunities in the rural India. In India the
insurance business can be said to be “a marathon, not a sprint”. This is
because of the nature of the business being long term. However it seems
that they if not anything, are only increasing their spending, though only
out of the capital. As insurance companies go more and more rural in
search of business, there will be opportunities in the rural sector.
Already United India The Rural consumer is now exhibiting an
increasing propensity for Insurance products. A research conducted
exhibited that the rural consumers are willing to dole out anything
between Rs. 3,500 and Rs. 2,900 as premium each year. In the Insurance
the awareness level for Life Insurance is the highest in rural India, but
the customers are also aware about motor, accidents and cattle insurance.
According to a study nearly one third said that they had purchased some
kind of insurance with the maximum penetration skewed in favor of life
insurance. The study also pointed out the private companies have huge
task to play in creating awareness and creditability among the rural
populace.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND INSURANCE


In the insurance industry today, there is a clear trend away from
selling a broad range of products to a large volume of customers in a
one- size-fits-all manner. Instead of focusing on their different products
lines as silos (i.e., life, property and casualty etc) insurers are looking
for ways to offer highly targeted insurance products that are tailored to
the individuals customers with the highest propensity to buy them.
Insurance industry is a data-rich industry, and thus, there is desire need
to use the data for trend analysis and personalization.
20
With increased competition among insurers, service has become a
key issue. People today don’t want to accept the current value
propositions, they want personalized interactions and they look for more
and more features and add ones and better service. Today managing the
customer intelligently is very critical for the insurer especially in the
very competitive environment. Companies need to apply different set of
rules and treatment strategies to different customer segments.

With the explosion of Website and greater access to direct or


policy information, there is a need to developing better techniques to
give customers a truly personalized experience. Personalization helps
organizations to reach their customers with more impact and to generate
new revenue through cross selling and up selling activities. To ensure
that the customers are receiving personalized

information, many organizations are incorporating knowledge database-


repositories of content that typically include a search engine and lets the
customers locate the all document and information related to their
queries of request for services. Customers can hereby use the knowledge
database to manage their products or the company information and
invoices, claim records, and histories of the service inquiry. These
products also may be able to learn from the customer’s previous
knowledge database and to use their information when determining the
relevance to the customers search request. The insurance sector remains
a very competitive market and those companies that are able to best
utilize their data and provide their customer with the most personalized
options will have the distinct competitive advantage.

21
MERGERS AND ACQUISTIONS
This is an era of mergers and acquisitions. Private companies
including MNC’s are amalgamating the world over to get more
competitive edge. Currently, the general insurance industry has been
opened up. The insurers are doing enough to raise the level of risk
awareness or are they merely content to compete in the markets
organized and established. The private players in the future would have
to turn their attention to working in the unorganized and under served
markets.

What is likely to happen is that the private players would continue


to skim the profitable segments of the already organized business in the
urban areas? The time has already come for the government of India to
evaluate the performance of private companies.

However it is high time for the government to realize that


importance of merging the public sector general insurance companies
into single entity. The recent scenario calls for a better performance
from part of each of the public sector insurance companies against each
other. The result what we see is the undercutting to retain or wrest
business and quoting an uneconomical rate of premium. While this
allows one of the Public Sectors Company to win a business form another
in this manner. The others suffer a loss and the resultant effect is a
cannibalization with a fall in the average premium of the public sector
itself.

The purpose of having four companies all subsidiaries of General


Insurance Corporation of India (GIC) – National Insurance
Company, New India Assurance Company, Oriental Insurance
Company, and The United India Insurance Company; at the time of
nationalization was to have competition among themselves – in service
and products at the same price.

22
Now with real competition coming in with most of the global
insurance players setting footprints here, it is felt that the time for
merger has come and to enjoy the benefits if the size. It is to be stated
that size does matter in insurance business. All over the world’s mergers
and acquisitions in the risk-underwriting sector is common. The benefits
if the four insurance companies merge will be enormous. The merged
entity will enjoy higher underwriting and risk retention capacity;
increase in reinsurance premium, reduction in reinsurance outflow,
healthy solvency margins, setting right the asset-liability mismatch and
reduction in cost. The loss of profitable business in view of undeserved
competition among the public sector companies is hampering the
subsidization of social insurance including the motor third party liability
(TPL).

It is thus clear that it is good for the public sector companies to


merge immediately when they are still strong, lest a merger becomes
inevitable later after the independent public sector companies fail one
after another.

STRATEGIC ALTERNATIVES
If one analyses the history of growth of the insurance industry
since reforms, it is marked by all- round growth of all players. More or
less all players have aggressively recruited and trained advisors,
appointed agents, launched new products, improved customer service
standards and revamped/expanded their distribution networks. Every
player would like the customers to believe that its service standards are
the best or that its agents are the most informed and ethical. In other
words, each company is trying to be ‘everything to everybody’. Some
players justify the above strategy on the basis that the Indian market is
huge and it can accommodate everybody. Still, in a market where it is
difficult to distinguish oneself sufficiently on service or any other

23
parameter to be able to charge a premium, it will lead to unmitigated
price competition to the detriment of all players. In the insurance
industry where large amounts of capital are required, this is risky.
While there is room for a few scale players with a finger in every
pie, it is profitable for the players to focus on different segments to
survive and thrive in a multi-firm open environment. While each
company has to choose its own unique positioning based on its unique
strengths.

• Variety-based Positioning
This type of positioning is based on varieties in products and
services rather than customer segments. It is a sensible strategy for those
companies who have distinctive advantages or strengths in offering
certain products and services.
In the insurance industry too, it is possible to achieve a unique
position by focusing on certain category of products. Through its
superior fund management capabilities, the insurance company can
deliver better returns on it investment-linked products and thereby for
itself a leadership position in this segment.
Then there is the entire category of pension products, which is
widely touted to have immense growth potential in India due to imminent
pension reforms. It is possible to achieve profitable positioning by
focusing and excelling in only pension products.

• Needs –based Positioning


This is the most commonly understood positioning and is based
on the different needs of different groups of consumers. This can be done
successfully if a company has unique strengths to service a group of
customer needs better than others.
The insurance needs of young family with small children will be
quite different from that of a family in which the income-earner is close
to retirement. However, in India most of the Life Insurance companies

24
have a wide variety of products of different customer needs and there is
no company focusing only on a particular customer needs.

• Access- based Positioning


Positioning of customers can also be done by the way they are
accessible that is different groups of customers may be accessible in
different ways even though they may have similar needs. Access is
typically a function of customer scale.
There is excellent opportunity in the insurance industry to employ
access-based positioning by targeting the rural insurance sector. The
rural market for Life Insurance is very different from the urban market in
terms of needs, income levels, distribution, penetration of media and so
on. Except for LIC, no other player has paid any attention or focus on
the rural sector. Contrary to common perception it is a big opportunity as
emphasized repeatedly by such eminent strategies like C.K.Prahlad.
Rural market can be a highly profitable position if one is able to
carefully plan.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT STRATEGY

The right strategic choice is not a matter of positioning choice


alone. It is the configuration of the entire value chain of the company
through a different set of activities to deliver unique value to consumers.
The set of activities cover all upstream and downstream activities, from
the selection of the product mix. Some Life Insurance companies
focusing on rural markets have adopted innovative means of distribution.
Instead of appointing agents as is done typically, they have used
Gramsevaks in different villages across the country to promote Life
Insurance and act as their sales arm.

25
So we can conclude that, the size of the market has grown and the
size of the insurable population in India is indeed vast and the existing
players have managed to cover about one-fourth of it.
The falling interest rates, the collapse of many small –time
financial institutions, the scope for entering related areas like banking
and pensions in a bid for synergy and the promise of the e-commerce are
some of the other opportunities knocking at the doors of the insurance
majors.

A number of web sites are coming up on insurance, a few financial


magazines exclusively devoted to insurance and also a few training
institutes being set up hurriedly. Many of the universities and
management institutes have already started courses in insurance.

Life insurance has today become a mainstay of any market


economy since it offers plenty of scope for garnering large sums of
money for long periods of time. A well regulated Life Insurance industry
which moves with the times by offering its customers tailor-made
products to satisfy their financial needs is, therefore, essential if we
desire to progress towards a worry-free future.

Agency channel, which is the dominant one, and the other one is
bancassurance agreement so far. The first was Standard Chartered Bank.
When they started their operations in India, it had a good customer base
of HNIs & corporate and therefore they chose that bank. Their next
bancassurance arrangement was with Syndicate Bank last year. Recently,
we have entered into bancassurance with Centurion Bank. This bank has
a vast network of around 100 branches not in metro cities but also in “B”
class cities.

are in regular touch with their customers anyway either through the
ATMs, Internet Banking etc. and hence the bank can at least inform their
customers about the insurance products. Once the customer evinces keen
interest the product features can be explained to them. Again in order to
issue the policy they need not visit their office, but the bank branch can
issue the policy from their office itself.

IMPORTANCE OF ADVISORS IN AN INSURANE
COMPANY :

organization structure:

MANAGER MANAGER MANAGER

ADVISORS ADVISORS ADVISORS

The sales team comprises of the Sales Manager superior to Area


Sales Manager, These ASM’s (Area Sales Manager) have their own
individual team of Unit Manager and in turn Unit Managers their own
team of financial advisors.

Each team of ASM’s competing with each other in surge of


achieving targets, each Unit Manager depends on their Advisors for their
business. They represent the company in the market to the customers, so
nobody can deny the importance of Advisors in the whole system.

They providing the company with the business and help their
respective Unit Manager to achieve their targets. So a unit Manager has
to be really careful while recruiting their Advisors. During the year of

94
appointment, new Advisor usually account for a relatively small
proportion of the organization’s total production.

The most promising means of achieving profitable production


growth lies in your sales organization’s capacity to give policy owners
good counsel and prompt, courteous serves –to give them value for
premium paid. The best guarantee of having that capacity comes from
retaining large number of productive advisor.

Consequently, the development needs of your sales organization

found to be manpower-focused.

FINDINGS

 People are becoming more & more money conscious as I didn’t


find any person who doesn’t want to earn extra money.

 People are very much aware of ICICI Prudential among private


companies and LIC in public sector as they respond me first name
of LIC then ICICI prudential and then others.

 The overall scenario is that still people trust on LIC more than any
other insurance company. Sometimes when I asked someone to
become an agent of Bajaj Allianz they misunderstood with LIC.
For them still life insurance means LIC.

 Generally people are having leisure time of around 2-3 hrs and
still want to utilize this time to earn extra money, if they can.

 Contrary of the prior thinking most of the people don’t hesitate in


doing field work an roaming in the market. They know that without
hard work they can’t earn money.

 There were many respondents who were not interested in attending


seminar conducted by Bajaj Allianz among Indian Market.

99
RECOMMENDATIONS

 There should be focus on advertisements through T.V. or other


Electronic Media.

 Try to make Brand Image, with the help of Bajaj Auto, more &
more as it has a strong brand image in Indian market.

 Make use of internet banking for increasing sales, and also for
promotion.

 They should increase their Distribution Channels by more & more


tie ups with the locals banks also, because they can help them to
penetrate in Indian market easily.

 There should be more incentives to IC’s as they are the backbone


of the company in order to increase sales they have to do more
efforts than others.
