PREFACE
Practical training is an important part of management courses. Theoretical studies are not
sufficient to get into corporate world and understand the complexities of large-scale
organizations.
Practical training exposes us to real practices of management in the organization. It also exposes

successful career are.
I deem it privilege to have undergone this project. I acknowledge that the practical training that I
got from this cannot be gained otherwise. I found my project very interesting and challenging.

WHAT IS INSURANCE
The business of insurance is related to the protection of the ECONOMIC VALUES OF ASSETS.
Every asset has a value. The asset would have been created through the efforts of the owner. The
asset would have been created through the efforts of the owner. The asset is valuable to the
owner, because he expects to get some benefits form it. It is a benefit because it meets some of
his needs. The benefit may be an income or in some other form. In the case of a factory or a cow,
the product generated by it is sold and income is generated. In the case of a motor car, it provides
comfort and convenience in transportation. There is no direct income. Both are assets and
provide benefits.
Every asset is expected to last for a certain period of time during which it will provide the
benefits. After that, the benefit may not be available.
There is a life-time for a machine in factory or a cow or a motor car. None of them will last
forever. The owner is aware of this and he can so manage his affairs that by the end of that period
or life-time, a substitute is made available. Thus he makes sure that the benefit is not lost.
However, the asset may get lost earlier. An accident or some other unfortunate event may destroy
it or make it incapable of giving the benefits. An epidemic may kill the cow suddenly. In that
case, the owner and those enjoying the benefits therefore, would be deprived of the benefits. The
planned substitute would not have been ready. There is an adverse or unpleasant situation.
Insurance is a mechanism that helps to reduce the effects of such adverse situations. It promises
to pay to the owner or beneficiary of the asset, a certain sum if the loss occurs.

HISTORY OF INSURANCE
Insurance has been known to exist in some form or other since 3000 BC. The Chinese
traders, traveling treacherous river rapids would distribute their goods among several
vessels, so that the loss from any one vessel being lost, would be partial and shared, and
not total. The Babylonian traders would agree to pay additional sums to lenders, as the
price for writing off the loans, in case of the shipment being stolen. The inhabitants of
Rhodes adopted the principle of general average of general average, whereby, if goods
are shipped together, the owners would bear the losses in proportion, if loss occurs, due
to jettisoning during distress. {Captains of ships caught in storms, would throw away
some of the cargo to reduce the weight and restore balance. Such throwing away is called
jettisoning} The Greeks had started benevolent societies in the late 7 th century AD, to
take care of the funeral and families of members who died. The great fire of London in
1666,in which more than 13000 house were lost, gave a boost to insurance and the first
fire insurance company, called the fire office, was started in 1680.
The origins of insurance business as in vogue at present, is traced to the Lloyds Coffee
House in London. Traders, who used to gather in the Lloyds coffee house in London,
agreed to share the losses to their goods while being carried by ships. The losses used to
occur because of pirates who robbed on the high seas of because of bad weather spoiling
the goods or sinking the ship. In India, insurance began in 1818 with life insurance being
transacted by an English company, the Oriental Life Insurance Co. in 1870 in Mumbai.
This was followed by the Bharat Insurance co. in 1896 in Delhi, the Empire of India in
1897 in Mumbai, The United India in Chennai, the National, the National Indian and
Hindustan Cooperative in Kolkata.
Later, were established the cooperative Assurance in Lahore, the Bombay Life (originally
called the swadeshi life), the India Mercantile, the new India and the Jupiter in Mumbai
and the Lakshmi in New Delhi. These were all Indian companies started as a result of the
swadeshi movement in the early 1900s. By the year 1956, when life insurance business
was nationalized and the life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) was formed on1st
September 1956, there were 170 companies and 75 provident fund societies transacting
life business in India. After the amendments to the relevant laws in 1999, the L.I.C. did
not have the exclusive privilege of doing life insurance business in India. By 31.8.2007,
sixteen new life insurers had been registered and were transacting life insurance business
in India.

The History of Insurance in India


Some of the important milestones in the life insurance business in India are:
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 9

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

1912 - The Indian Life Assurance Companies Act enacted as the first statute to regulate
the life insurance business.

1928 - The Indian Insurance Companies Act enacted to enable the government to collect
statistical information about both life and non-life insurance businesses.

1938 - Earlier legislation consolidated and amended to by the Insurance Act with the
objective of protecting the interests of the insuring public.

1956 - 245 Indian and foreign insurers and provident societies taken over by the central
government and nationalized. LIC formed by an Act of Parliament, viz. LIC Act, 1956,
with a capital contribution of Rs. 5 crore from the Government of India.
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.

Life Insurance a Basic Need


Life insurance is a contract providing for payment of a sum of money to the person assured or,
failing him, to the person entitled to receive the same, on the happening of certain event.
A family is generally dependent for its food, clothing and shelter on the income brought in at
regular intervals by the bread winner of the family. So long as the he lives and the income is
received steadily, that family is secure; but should death suddenly intervene the family may be
left in a very difficult situation and sometimes, in stark poverty.
Uncertainty of death is inherent in human life. It is this uncertainty that is risk, which gives rise
to the necessity for some form of protection against the financial loss arising from death;
insurance substitutes this uncertainty by certainty.

Few Advantages of Life Insurance


1. It is superior to an ordinary savings plans:
This is so because unlike other saving plans, it affords full protection against risk of death. In
case of death, the full sum assured is made available under a life assurance policy; whereas under
other savings schemes the total accumulated savings alone will be available. The latter will be
considerably less than the sum assured, if death occurs during early years.
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 10

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

2. Insurance encourages and forces thrift:


A savings deposit can be too easily withdrawn. Many may not be able to resist the temptation of
using the balance for some less worthy purpose. On the other hand, the payment of life insurance
premiums becomes a habit and comes to be viewed wit the same seriousness as the payment of
interest on a mortgage. Thus insurance, in effect brings about compulsory saving.
3. Easy settlement and protection against creditors:
The life assured can name a person or persons to whom the policy moneys would be payable in
the event of his death. The proceeds of a life insurance policy can be protected against. The
claims of the creditors of the life are assured by effecting a valid assignment of the policy. A
married womens property act policy constitutes a trust in favor of the wife and children and no
separate assignment is necessary. The beneficiaries are fully protected from creditors except to
the extent of any interest in the policy retained by the assured.
4. Administering the legacy for beneficiaries:
It often happens that a provision which a husband or father has made through insurance is
quickly lost through speculative or unwise investment or by unnecessary expenditure on
luxuries. These contingencies can be provided against in the case of insurance. The policyholder
can arrange that in the in the event of his death the beneficiary should receive, instead of a single
sum (a). payment of the net claim amount by equal installments over a specified period of years,
or (b).payment of the claim amount by smaller monthly installments over the selected period
followed by a lump sum at the end thereof.
5. Ready marketability and suitability for quick borrowings:
After an initial period, if the policy holder finds him unable to continue payment of premiums he
can surrender the policy for a cash sum. Alternatively he can tide over a temporary difficulty by
taking loan on the sole security of the policy without delay. Further a life insurance policy is
sometimes acceptable as security for a commercial loan.
6. Tax relief:
For computing income tax (especially in India the Indian income tax act) follows deduction from
income tax payable, a certain percentage of a portion of the taxable income of individuals which
is diverted to payment of insurance premiums. When this tax relief is taken into account it will
be found that the assured is n effect paying a lower premium for his insurance.

How Insurance Works


The mechanism of insurance is very simple. People who are exposed to the same risks come
together and agree that, if any one of the members suffers a loss, the others will share the loss
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 11

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

and make good to the person who lost. All people who send goods by ship are exposed to the
same risk related to water damage, ship sinking, piracy, etc. those owning factories are not
exposed to these risks, but they are exposed to different kinds of risks like, fire, hailstorms,
earthquakes, lightening, burglary, etc. like this, different kinds of risks can be identified and
separate groups, made including those exposed to such risks. By this method, the risk is spread
among the community and the likely big impact on one is reduced to smaller manageable
impacts on all.
If a Jumbo Jet with more than 350 passengers crashes, the loss would run into several crores of
rupees. No airline would be able to bear such a loss. It is unlikely that many Jumbo Jets will
crash at the same time. If 100 airline companies flying Jumbo Jets, come together into an
insurance pool, whenever one of the jumbo jets in the pool crashes, the loss to be borne by each
airline would come down to a few lakhs of rupees. Thus, insurance is a business sharing.

Role of Insurance in Economic Development


For economic development, investments are necessary. Investments are made out of
savings. A life insurance company is a major instrument for the mobilization of savings
of people, particularly from the middle and lower income groups. These savings are
channeled into investments for economic growth.
An insurance companys strength lies in the fact that huge amounts come by way of
premiums. Every premium represents a risk that is covered by that premium. In effect,
therefore, these vast amounts represent pooling of risks. The funds are collected and held
in trust for the benefit of the policyholders.
The management of insurance companies is required to keep this aspect in mind and
make all its decisions in ways that benefit the community. This applies also to its
investments. This is why successful insurance companies would not be found investing in
speculative ventures. Their investments benefit the society at large.
The system of insurance provides numerous direct and indirect benefits to the individual
and his family as well as to industry and commerce and to the community and the nation
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 12

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

as a whole. Those who insure, both individuals and corporate, are directly benefited
because they are protected from the consequences of the loss that may be caused by the
accident or fortuitous event. Insurance, thus, in a sense protects the capital in industry and
releases the capital for further expansion and development of business and industry.
The very existence of risk that is, uncertainty concerning the future, is a severe handicaps
in economic activities. Insurance removes the fear, worry and anxiety associated with this
future uncertainty and thus encourages free investment of capital in business enterprises
and promotes efficient use of existing resources.

Thus insurance encourages commercial and industrial development and there by


contributes to a vigorous economy and increased national productivity.
Present day organization of industry, commerce and trade depend entirely on insurance
for their operation, banks and financial institutions lend money to industrial and
commercial undertakings only on the basis of the collateral security of insurance. No
bank or financial institution would advance loans on property unless it is insured against
loss or damage by insurable perils.
Insurers are closely associated with several agencies and institutions engaged in fire loss
prevention, cargo loss prevention, cargo loss prevention, industrial safety and road safety.
Before acceptance of a risk, insurers arrange survey and inspection of the property to be
insured, by qualified engineers and other experts.
The object of these surveys is not only to assess the risk for rating purposes but also to
suggest and recommend to the insured, various improvements in the risk, which will
attract lower rates of premium and what is more important , reduce the loss potential. For
example, burglary surveyors make recommendation in regard to security measures such
as better locking system, appointment of Watchman, etc. Engineering surveys play a most
useful part in accident prevention as valuable technical advice is provided in respect of
plant and machinery.

Meaning of Recruitment
Finding the right people is a make-or-break factor for success in business today. Recruiting the
top talent for a job takes time and you have to attract quality candidates who have the knowledge
and skills needed to help your company grow.
The fact is, your success with recruitment depends on how well you prepare your job ad, and use
source of recruitment, and your interviewing skills.
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 32

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

Prepare a job ad that works to start, you want to be sure that your potential candidate truly
understands the job. The clearer you are with the task description, working conditions and
advantages, the less time you will waste examining and rejecting applications
The essentials of any job description are:

A brief description of your company

Detailed outline of the tasks involved

Qualifications and experience required

Equipment and resources used to do the work

Skills required using them.

However, you should also include work benefits (e.g., vacation, travel and perks), general
working conditions (e.g., scheduling, outside work) and the specific traits required (e.g. Team
Building and Communications skills). Ultimately, you want to be perceived as an attractive
employer in a competitive market.
Find the right recruitment vehicle choose the vehicle that best works for your company,
depending on your budget and resources.
Word of mouth, or simply telling your employees, friends and colleagues about a job opening, is
a less expensive strategy but generates fewer candidates. The advantage is that you already know
something about your recruiters and their skills, knowledge and achievements. This is a preferred
method with companies that have a finder's fee program for their employees.
Advertising is a toss of the dice. If it goes well, it can help you find ideal candidates in a
regional, national, or international pool. If not, it's a costly investment yielding few results. Make
sure to factor in the time it takes to go through
a large number of resumes.
Employment agencies cost more but generally provide a good range of candidates. The
employment advisors look at your needs, screen a number of candidates, and only send you the
applications that meet your requirements. Bear in mind that the largest employment agencies do
not necessarily offer the best choice of candidates. There are numerous agencies that specialize
in recruitment in specific sectors.
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 33

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

Recruiting online such as monster.ca, workopolis.com and jobboom.com. These can provide
inexpensive, worldwide access to employees. In fact, 65% of job seekers now have access to
these
types
of
services.
Using the Internet for recruiting usually involves regular visits to specialized recruitment sites,
joining newsgroups, and posting your job openings on recruitment sites, electronic publications
and on your own Web site.

After recruitment the next part is selection of best candidates.

Make the interview deliver


Since the purpose of an interview is to identify and verify the candidate's potential, it should be
structured to bring out all the desired competencies and aptitudes. Remember that you have to
decide between the candidates: you could create a point system or analysis grid for comparing
their strengths and weaknesses.
Here are a few points to consider when structuring an interview:
Make a list in advance of the points for discussion and corresponding questions.

Present the candidates with a situation they could face on the job and ask them how they
would react. This will enable you to evaluate the candidates' knowledge, skills and work
methods.

Ask the candidates to describe some difficult situations encountered in previous jobs and to
explain the way in which they were resolved. This will give you the chance to gauge the
candidates' self-confidence, creativity and problem-solving skills.

Ask the candidates to describe a difficult situation involving colleagues and how it was
resolved. This will enable you to test their aptitude for teamwork.

Ask the candidates about their ambitions and plans to ensure they fit your company profile.
DSB-Darwin School of Business

Page 34

Bharti Axa Life Insurance (Training Report)

Beware of asking questions about personal interests. They can get the interview off track or
annoy people who want to keep their work and private lives separate.

Or

Why people are not ready to work as an agent in any company?


In these days LIC created a very well image in the mind of General public because it is semi
Government Company and also an oldest company. In short most people of Indian believe
upon the LIC only.
During the training period we felt that most of people who are already working in insurance
sector think that it is easy to sell the product of LIC than to sell the product of other life
insurance company.
Most of people say that this job affects upon their social relation with other and also effect
upon their business.
Most of people believe that private insurance companies carried out fraud activity thats why
they never believe upon the private players.
People think that it is a time consuming activity and also required huge market skills.
Some people said that only greedy people like to work in insurance sector.

Conclusion
In India, there is throat cut competition in the market of life insurance that brand service which
adopt new strategies for sales. I concluding the whole story it can be said that people are much
more aware about the aspects of life insurance and also have knowledge about the role and act of
agent but mostly people unwilling to work as life insurance agent and mostly people prefer to
work with LIC because it is a semi government corporation.

Suggestions
Bharti-AXA life insurance company must give more advertisements on electronic media
and print media, as it help in enhance its goodwill and more people are willing to work
with reputed companies, through proper advertisement it become easy to sell the product.
An insurance company must work with honesty to win the confident of its agent and
general public.
Duration of training must be reducing as in these day people have no extra time.
Training hours should be made choice of their preference timing.
Fees charged by companies from candidate for IRDA exam and training should reduce.

Many other extra facilities must be provide to agent to attract them such local and foreign
trips, special price on achieving a target, open bank account at free of cost.
Bharti-AXA Life Insurance Company must organize more and more seminars and also
participate in the job trade fairs to find out more candidates.
Increase the commission of agents.
Company must relic to candidate or other people that they are doing a social service for
the welfare of society.
Better career opportunity must be provided to an adviser, such as on role job, promotion
etc.
A special function must organize time to time in which the special prizes distribute
among those agent who perform well.
Reduce the minimum premium amount it will help company to attract the agent of other
company, as it increases the scope of market of its agent.
