Indian Cricket Team Insured by BCCI for Rs.2.5 crores each

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has decided that they will insure each national player for Rs.2.5 crore.

The policies of BCCI has gradually changed towards their players. This moves comes after the Sri Lankan Cricket players were attacked in Lahore, Pakistan. The previous Insurance amount for the players of the richest Cricket Board in the world was Rs.10 lakh per person. And this was limited only to the players who were touring abroad. Now the Insurance cover will be extended to even those players which have been contracted centrally by the BCCI.

A total 37 players are contracted by BCCI. They are divided in 3 grades which are Grade A, B and C. The Insurance cover will be uniform for all the Grades. The 12 players in Grade A, 5 players in Grade B and 20 players in Grade C will be insured for Rs.2.5 crore each.

This new development took a long while to finally come to fruition. Also the support staff of Team India will be covered under this policy as well. The Insurance cover came into effect from 1st October 2011. The Insurance provider in this case is National Insurance Company.

It is a positive step by BCCI which is the richest cricket board in the world to raise the Insurance cover of each player from Rs.10 lakhs to Rs. 2.5 crore. It also shows the importance of Insurance for important employees in any organisation. BCCI is an organisation and other organisations which includes companies, firms and self proprietors should follow suit.

Bharti and Reliance talks regarding Bharti's Insurance business break down

Earlier Reliance industries along with their sister company, Reliance Infrastructure Ltd had planned on buying a total of 74% stake in Bharti AXA Life Insurance and Bharti AXA General Insurance. 54% would be owned by Reliance Industries and 17% by Reliance Infrastructure.

Now things seem to have changed. Reliance has announced that they no longer will be buying the stake. They have cited reasons like vision and governance disagreements.

The move by Reliance was due to the lack of growth in its existing business's. Also the need to diversify and increase presence in non core business's was also a motive.

Bharti Enterprises on the other hand is in desperate need of funds. After the long drawn out and rather expensive deal in Africa, Bharti needs money. The $9 billion dollar deal through which Bharti bought Zain's African operations. Also the  setting up of the 3G network in India will take it financial toll as well.

The shareholders of both the companies are not very happy with this development. Reliance shares lost 2.5% value and Bharti Airtel lost 0.9% value in the share market.

Life Insurance Corp may invest in Kingfisher Airlines

Life Insurance Corporation of India which is a state run company has shown interest in investing in Kingfisher Airlines. The Government has endorsed and forwarded a proposal to LIC regarding a possible deal.

After all the brouhaha regarding Kingfisher Airlines in the media, the Government has decided to help the airlines out. Not directly but the Government has its ways of making sure Kingfisher Airlines gets the funds it needs.

The Insurance company LIC has from time to time made huge investments in various industries in the market.

The Government has already pumped huge sums into Indian Airlines time and again. The Airline is still making losses. Almost all the airlines in India are making losses. Vijay Mallya who has already received a media trial in the last few weeks, has denied approaching the Government or the LIC for funds.

LIC, if the proposal is approved may invest upto Rs. 1.20 billion in the airlines. With most investors staying away from this loss making industry, LIC is ready to take the risk. Also the future prospects of Kingfisher Airlines looks bleak as it is. Hence a Government agency investing into such a company does come as a surprise to most.

LIC has also made major investments in tobacco companies and now its Kingfisher Airlines.Seems like we have some interesting times coming up.

But if you guys are still afraid your flight might get cancelled or run out of fuel mid flight, get yourself travel insurance and life insurance right now ! Give us a call on our toll free number 1800-103-922 and leave all the paperwork and running around to us.

The ODI in Mumbai this sunday has a 9 crore Insurance policy

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has bought an Insurance policy worth Rs. 9 crore for the One Day International happening at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Also the MCA will be paying a special premium for a contingency plan worth Rs. 5 lakhs.

The company which has provided this Insurance cover is Oriental Insurance Company. The cover will protect the Association from losses due to cancellation of the match due to bad weather, natural disasters, abandonment due to the death of a Prime Minister or President and last, terrorism related incident. Although if even a single ball is bowled, no compensation claims will be entertained.

Insurance cover for cricket matches in India has been rising at a considerable rate now. The India-Australia matches in 2009 were insured for 8crores. Also India has been tagged in the extreme risk category in the reinsurance market when it comes to the terror index.

Apart from the regular bomb blasts in the country, the organizers are also concerned about the unpredictable weather. The monsoon season has been over for a month now but the showers refuse to leave Mumbai.

Well lets hope that there are no unexpected surprises except India comprehensively defeating England again !

Health Insurance Portability explained!

Health Insurance Portability after many delays and setbacks has finally arrived in India. From 1st October,2011 , you will be able to switch your policy to another Insurance provider in the country along with all the benefits in the existing policy. Yes, this one is for real! Say a customer has a 5 year policy and wants to switch when only 2 years have been completed and paid for, he can switch to another Insurance provider in the market. The cover amount will remain the same along with most of its features.

Now this new development will bring a lot of changes in the Insurance market. An individual, now, not satisfied with his/her present Insurance providers services will now have the power to make a switch. And finally “customer care” will become a huge factor which will come into play in this industry.

Companies, who do not have the product depth or variety in the market, could easily gain clients on their customer care prowess. The provided service levels will now decide who gets to keep their clients. Industry experts predict, that, this will lead to ‘specialization’ in services.

A company will try to focus and retain customers from one particular section in the market. This will lead to further specialized products,  and  availability of companies dedicated to limited categories will increase for the benefit of the customer satisfaction, reducing the confusion a customer faces when buying a new policy.

The only effort that the customer now needs to put in is to inform the two insurance companies 45 days before the policy matures.

Be safe. Buy Insurance online

What is personal Insurance?

Personal Insurance is broadly described as insurance policies that cover personal property, motor and/or health insurance. For more detailed information, you can call us on our toll-free number 1800-103-9222.

And we have multi language support so you can get all your queries solved, find, compare and buy the best Insurance policy in the market, all while conversing in your preferred language.

10 Things to look for in YOUR INSURANCE POLICY:

VERIFY: your personal details and data provided to the insurance company, for it forms a very important part of the settlement claims. Mention all details correctly and honestly. In cases where it is not declared or is erroneous on policy documents, the insurer in all fairness may refuse to honor the claim.

ANALYSE: your benefits, must correspond with your long term plans. Go through the features of the product and check if they match with promises made during the purchase. Check for evolved features such as dynamic fund allocation or increasing premium to beat inflation which needs to be understood in detail.

CHECK: for add-on covers known as riders for other types of contingencies. Ensure that rider you bought are included in it, to avoid disappointments at critical moments.

CONSIDER: knowing the exact payment tenure. Check for how long you need to pay premiums and also what mode of payment you may have chosen, for example half yearly, quarterly etc. Life insurance is a long term savings and protection tool and its benefits can be seen only if one buys it for the long-term, which is the primary reason you bought the policy.

AUTHENTICATE: Study carefully what is guaranteed and what is not. Once you get the policy documents, check out the benefit illustrations of returns.

GLANCE: through terms and conditions of the service contract. In case you find any difficulty in understanding any aspect, you may want to check with the insurer the impact of those terms.

CONFIRM: the exact surrender charges mentioned in the documents for the times you face a cash crunch and need to surrender your policy or make partial withdrawals.

EXAMINE: exclusions in the policy, which define aspects or situations that will not be included in the coverage. It is common for many life insurance policies to refuse to cover certain types of deaths within a specific period of the policy being issued.

CLAIM: nominee's details are captured properly. Your life insurance policies should include everything that is supposed to be in your coverage, and it will spell out exactly what your responsibilities are, what the life insurance company is responsible for, what you are covered for and how much, and every other aspect of your life insurance coverage.

Mis-Sold: The life insurers give a free look period of 15 days to the consumer during which a consumer can review the policy from his needs perspective. If product features aren’t in sync with consumer needs, then he is free to return the policy and claim a refund of the money paid.

ICICI Prudential Life Insurance kick starts awareness drive

ICICI Prudential Life Insurance will soon be launching a consumer awareness drive. In recent surveys and studies, the company has found out that the level of awareness of basic insurance facts is frighteningly low in India.

This lack of awareness leads to purchase of the wrong product. Expectations are always there but when they are not met, you blame the Insurance provider. This leads to further problems, especially for the Insured.

Life Insurance is a wonderful and must have tool for hedging, protection and even wealth creation. But due to lack of knowledge or even awareness about the basic facts, these products are not used to their full potential.

Thus according ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, consumer awareness is of paramount importance. The company will go about this campaign with 10-12 insurance mantras. Let us hope this time consumers learn something and make informed decisions when it comes to buying Life Insurance.

6 things to keep in mind when buying Health Insurance

There is no such thing as the perfect plan
There are thousands of plans and policies out there. The first thing you need to figure out is what you need. Accordingly find the plan which best suits your requirements and go ahead and buy it.
Get more than enough health cover
When we don’t mind paying a few bucks extra at high restaurants because of hygiene issues why not extend this courtesy to Insurance as well. Keep in mind that inflation in India will always remain at a particular level. And with the way medical costs are increasing, the amount which according to you is more than enough might not cut it. And you will realize this when there will be either no or very limited sources of income.

Read the Terms and Conditions
We know that they are written in small fonts and it's a lot of text. Read it while you still can, as it could very well decide where and how you will get yourself and your family treated in the future.

Do not depend on employee health Insurance schemes
Never depend on the Health Insurance you get at work. Jobs are transient and you will lose the insurance when you leave the job. And company policies are usually very limited in nature. Make sure you get your own policy according to your own needs.

Mark renewal dates everywhere
These are important dates and should be marked everywhere. Mark them on your calendars, mobile phones, planners, alarm clocks etc. You can forget your anniversary or even the wife’s birthday but don’t forget your renewal date. It saves money and time, so always keep it in mind.

Hiring a Health Insurance advisor is not a big deal
Spending a little more and hiring an expert is never a bad idea. Granted if you intend to buy a policy for only a few years, you can skip this part. But when you are buying something as important as a family health, you better get an expert.

If you have any queries and problems on Health Insurance, you can always call us up on our toll free number 1800-103-9222 or visit our website to buy Insurance

Pakistani doctor devises Insurance scheme for urban poor in India

Asher Hasan is a Karachi based doctor who has brought some amazing changes in the lives of the urban poor. In a survey Hasan discovered that low income individuals can never take advantage of Insurance in cities and big towns.

Hasan came up with a novel idea. To get large corporations, educational institutions and NGO’s to buy group Insurance. This way all low level employees, like peons, drivers etc get insured in an economical way.

Hasan talked about his ideas recently in Mumbai. He gave a talk at the Observer Researcher Foundation on Healthcare and Urban Poor.

Through his NGO, Naya Jeevan, Hasan is trying to improve the lives of the urban poor. It has been a decent success in many Pakistani cities with tie-ups with 80 corporations. Asher hopes to start operation in India soon.

With a huge pool of low income clients, costs for Insurance providers are reduced. And Naya Jeevan adds an advantage to the Insurance Policy. When a claim gets rejected, the NGO takes over through their own reserve fund.

Although for those who can take individual insurance, call us up for free at 1800-103-9222 or visit us at and make your  and your families life much easier and financially secure

Insurance companies ignoring customer complaints, to pay penalties

Insurance Regulatory Authority of India (IRDA) has fined New India Assurance (NIA), an amount of Rs. 1 lakh for not replying to a client. IRDA had tried to communicate with NIA which was further ignored for 2 months.

Hemendra Mehta had been living abroad for a few months now. However he had still been paying medical insurance premium amount for the aforementioned months. He filed a query where he had asked the company to refund him the amount. NIA provides extension on the policy in such cases. But in this case no refund would have been made.

Now the problem starts after the grievance was filed. Hemendra received a mail which clearly stated that the refund will be considered. But when the Divisional Manager of the branch realized the folly he just stopped the communication. IRDA after 4 months of no action sent a letter to the head office of NIA. This was further ignored for another 2 months.

NIA finally refunded the amount to the policy holder after a total of 7 months. The Insurance provider made it look like they did a favor to the policy holder and the IRDA. IRDA responded with a Rs. 1 lakh fine.

The Divisional Manager is under investigation now.

Although one must keep in mind that this is just one instance of justice. IRDA is notorious for late replies. You have to wait 6 months to get an appointment with the Insurance Ombudsman in Mumbai. There position for an Ombudsman in Ahmedabad has been empty for the past 9 months.

But this case might be the delicate flame of light at the end of the tunnel. This is an encouraging step taken by the IRDA which will bring some positive changes in the Insurance sector.

To keep yourself and your family financially secure, you should try InsuringIndia or call us on our toll free number 1800-103-9222
