INTRODUCTION
What is Insurance?
Insurance is a means by which a person or company, can transfer insurable risks to an insurance company, against the payment of a premium.
Insurance is not necessarily an investment from which one expects to get one's money back. Nor is it gambling. A gambler takes risks, while insurance offers protection against risks that already exist. Insurance is a way to share risk with others. Since ancient times, communities have pooled some of their resources to help individuals who suffer loss.
"Insurance is a contract between two parties whereby one party called insurer undertakes in exchange for a fixed sum called premiums, to pay the other party called insured a fixed amount of money on the happening of a certain event."
“Insurance is a protection against financial loss arising on the happening of an unexpected event. Insurance companies collect premiums to provide for this protection. A loss is paid out of the premiums collected from the insuring public and the Insurance Companies act as trustees to the amount collected.”

For example, in a Life Policy, by paying a premium to the Insurer, the family of the insured person receives a fixed compensation on the death of the insured. It is a system by which the losses suffered by a few are spread over many, exposed to similar risks. Insurance is desired to safeguard oneself and one's family against possible losses on account of risks and perils. It provides financial compensation for the losses suffered due to the happening of any unforeseen events. By taking life insurance a person can have peace of mind and need not worry about the financial consequences in case of any untimely death.

TYPES OF INSURANCE
General insurance
The basis for general insurance is "transfer of risk”. This means that the insurer agrees to compensate you if you suffer a loss. Without the insurance you would have to pay for that loss yourself. Obviously this contract is made on the basis that the insurance company calculates the risk that you, or the total number of people buying insurance, will cost more in payouts than what is received in premiums. This is determined by the use of statistics and the information you disclose on your applications for insurance
This includes:
Home contents. It can either be "defined event" i.e. the policy covers loss or damage from a list of "defined" events, e.g. storm or fire; or "accidental loss or damage" i.e. all accidental loss with some exclusions.
Motor vehicle. It can either be "comprehensive" i.e. it covers any damage to your car as well as damage to the other car or another person's property; "third party property" i.e. it covers damage caused by your car to another person's property. This type of insurance will not cover you for the cost of repairs to your own car; "third party fire and theft i.e. it covers damage partly for damage caused by your car to another person's property, and restricted cover for damage to your car cause by theft or fire. Income protection. With this type of insurance the insurer agrees to pay you a specified amount of money, usually in monthly payments, in the event that you become disabled and unable to work. Along the same lines you an purchase "trauma insurance" to cover a medical trauma such as a heart attack.
Also in the modern day world the various players in the insurance market are launching a number of utility specific insurance policies in an effort to stay one step ahead of their competitors. Hence to make the Definition of General Insurance more broad based and inclusive we can say that all the policies that do not fall under “Life Insurance “ category fall under the General Insurance category.
Life Insurance
Life insurance is insurance that will protect your family and/or specified dependents in the event of the policyholder’s death. In general, it is an essential component in planning for the future.
There are many options with coverage, depending on your situation. And there are three main categories of life insurance: term life, universal life, and whole life insurance.
Term life is the simplest and least expensive type of policy. It's pure insurance with no cash value account. A term life policy has only one function: to pay a specific lump sum to whomever you've designated, upon a specific event, your death.
Whole life insurance provides permanent protection for your dependents while building cash value account. With this type of insurance, the insurance company manages the policies various accounts.
Universal life insurance provides permanent protection for your dependents and is more flexible than whole or variable life

PROJECT BRIEF


During the summer training period I had given a project which includes three studies:-

STUDY – 1

My first study is a sort of comparative study amongst different LIFE INSURANCE COMPANIES on the basis of some predetermined criteria and the type of policy that is to be compared is not the well known and old but it is the new concept that the LIFE INSURANCE companies has come up with whose name is Unit Linked Insurance Policy (ULIP).

The criteria on which the ULIP is to be compared are Entry Age & Maturity date, Premium value & Term, Death Benefit, Surrender Benefit, Withdrawal, Switches & Allocation of Equities and in the last the comparison of the return of their respective best funds.




RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

The Research methodology adopted in the study-1 is Conclusive in nature and the collection of the data is done through the secondary source i.e. internet, companies broachers etc.

DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH STUDY:.
In this type of research study the researcher must able to define clearly, what he wants to measure and must find adequate methods measuring it along with the clear cut definition of population he wants to study. Since the aim of study is to obtain complete and accurate information, the procedure must be carefully planned .The design in such studies must be rigid and rigid.In planning and designing a specific research project it is necessary to anticipate all the steps that must be under taken if the project is to be successful in collecting valid & reliable information. If it were broken down into very small parts or activities, the marketing research process would consist of a great no of steps ----



 Specifying research objectives.

 Preparing a list of the needed information.

 Designing the data collection project.

 Selecting a sample type.

 Determining a sample size.

 Organizing and carrying out the fieldwork.

 Analyzing the collected data and reporting the findings.

The comparison is shown through the table on the next page
In that study what we found is that there is no restriction in the entry age of the ULIP offered by the BAJAJ ALLIANZ life insurance company but on all other ( except ICICI PRU ) there is some restriction on the lower age.

The maturity period of the ULIP is differs from company to company but it is highest in case of Birla sun life as far as the payment of premium is concerned BAJAJ ALLIANZ life insurance has all the option whereas Birla sun life doesn’t want any type of flexibility in the payment of premium and ICICI has only yearly premium payment term.

The Ceiling on the lower level of premium is low in case of all except icici prudential. On account of death benefit all the companies is giving different types of benefits to their ULIP holders. The pre-matured withdrawal is also allowed in all the cases but in case of Birla sun life the customer needs to pay some charges on account of pre-matured withdrawal which they called as surrender charges. In case of Bajaj Allianz life Insurance and Birla sun life, policy fund is given to the policy holder on maturity.

The guaranteed benefits of Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company have no other substitute. The hospital cash benefit make the company different from others and also some tax benefits are also their u/s 80(C) and 10 10(D) of income tax act. Now comes the switch between various funds offered by the company, in that case 3 free

STUDY-2

OBJECTIVE:-

The objective of this study is to collect the data or information from the prospective customers and use the information to formulate the new policy which can cater to the need of that segment so that the company can capture the target market.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

The methodology used in this study is of Exploratory in nature. Research methodology is all of the techniques, methods and procedures adopted in terminology work to carry out terminology research. It is a way to systematically solve the research problem.
ANALYSES OF DATA
To analyses the data simple statistical tools such as pie chart, bar charts and MS Excel’s functions have been used.



DATA COLLECTION

The data are collected from both the primary and the secondary sources.

Primary: - Questionnaire

Secondary: - The details about the prospective customers is obtained from
the report of Mr. Avdesh Verma who had done his summer training in BAJAJ ALLIANZ life insurance company.

STUDY

The question was asked to the sample size of 150 customers and the questionnaire was having close ended questions. The questionnaire consisits of 13 questions. The responses that I got from the customers are represented through graphs. The graphical represented of the questionnaire is according to the sequence of the questions. The representation of the responses are shown on the next page:-






I asked the respondent about the importance that they give to the life insurance and found that around 140 respondent (i.e. 93% of the respondent) think that it is important for them ant the same is shown through the above diagram.











The next question asked was the main crietaria for selecting the life ionsurance policy. In that case the main importance is given to the amount of premium paid yearly. 33% of the respondent shown their importance in annual premium amount whereas 27% was concerned about the brand name of the company and one-fourth respondent given importance to the policy’s term.

















The next question that I asked to the respondent was that what they think wheather the life insurance is enough to cover the life or not and in that case I get the response in favour of the question. About 68% of the respondent said that life insurance is important for all and 32% respondent said that it is not necessary for all to get the life insurance policy.



The next question that I asked to the respondent is related to their future buying behaviour or in other word wheather they are going to take the life insurance policy in the near future ( less than 6 months). Most of the respondent ( 86% ) said that they are going to buy insurance policy in the near future whereas the remaining will thing to buy the policy.
















The next question in the questionnaire was about the suitable term of the premium that they will pay when they buy the insurance policy. 52% of the respondent said that they prefer quaterlly term premium for their life insurance policy. The single premium system is not liked by the respondent and only 4% respondent opted for that. The response percentage for the half-yearly and annually premium paid policy is opted by the 26% and 18% respectively.





















The minimum premium that the respondent wants to pay ranging between Rs 12000-15000 and around 59% response comes in the favour of that. While higher amount of premium as well as lower amount of premium is not that much attracting to these respondent. The response for 8000-12000 was 18% and least for the more than Rs 20000 i.e. 11%.



















Now the question for the brand is asked to the respondent. In that case the respondent thinked that BAJAJ ALLIANZ life insurance company is the fastest growing insurance company and get 40% of the respondent in his favour. ICICI Pru has got 17%, Kotak Mahindra 21% and the remaning response goes to the other life insurance companies like Birla sun life, HDFC life etc.


STUDY-3

OBJECTIVE:-

The objective of this study is to know about satisfactory level of the policy holders of Bajaj Allianz life insurance company and to know about the brand Image of the company and also asking about any steps ( if any ) so as to improve their service.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

The methodology used in this study is of Exploratory in nature.

DATA COLLECTION

The data are collected from both the primary and the secondary sources.
Primary: - Data collected directly through Questionnaire
Secondary: - Collected by the company record. ( List of the
Existing customers)

SAMPLE SIZE

The sample size of that study was 50 customers.

The first question that I asked to the existing customer was about the maturity age of their policy that is wheather they are satisfied with that or they buy that policy because they don’t have the preffered maturity age of the policy. Most of the customers was satisfied with the maturiey age of the policy ( 67% ) and the reasons for the others for non-satisfaction is that they didn’t had the preffered option at that time and they buy that policy due to the brand name of the company.



The next question that was asked to the existing customers was about the purpose of buying the insurance policy. The response in that case was the same that I was expecting. 385 policy holders had taken it for income security purpose and 18% policy holders took it for tax benefits and for life cover the percentage was 19%. The others section includes high returns etc. was responded by 25% of the policy holders.















The policy holders of BAJAJ ALLIANZ life insurance company thinks that the maturity period of 15-20 years is sufficient as far as they concenerd and responded by 43% policy holders. 15% of the policy holders thinks that the maturity period should be more than 20 years and approxmatelt the same percentage of people thinks in other way round i.e the term should should be less than 10 years.















BAJAJ ALLIANZ life insurance company has the handsome percentage of satisfied customers. The percentage of the satisfied customers is 85 % and only 15 % of the customers are not satisfied with the services of the company and I had also taken their suggestion to improve the service so that the company can increase the percentage of satisfied customers.

• Committed towards commitment.

• Able to fulfill the need of the Existing policy holders.

• Difficulties were quickly removed.

• People Preferred 15-20 years of policy.

• Highest satisfactory level ( 85%).

• Policies are taken as a source of income also.

• Most Trusted Insurance Company in private sector

• Giving highest return to their policy holders and also more flexibility to pay premium and switching

• Premium amount is the main criteria for selecting the policy.

• They preferred Quarterly premium payment and that amount preferably be under Rs 3500.

LIMITATIONS


• The customers was not that much attentive towards answering
