Insurance Companies in India

Insurance industry was opened for private players only after year 2000. Till then LIC was the only life insurance company operating in India. After the insurance industry got liberalized ,there has been a number of private insurance companies who have started their operations in the country most of them with the collaborations with Indian partners as only 26% share was permitted for any foreign players in the joint venture. All these companies have come up with customized and innovative and flexible insurance products to meet the needs of different people and their ever changing requirements .
