Sovereign guarantee for all policies issued by LIC will continue Jul-2011

NEW DELHI: Sovereign guarantee for all policies issued by Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) will continue, a government official said, allaying fears of millions of clients of the country's largest life insurer.

The government has decided to drop a clause from the Life Insurance Corporation (Amendment) Bill 2009 that suggested limits on the sovereign guarantee available to the country's largest life insurer.

"It has been decided to continue with government guarantee to LIC," the official told ET.

The government has also decided to retain a clause that allows the insurer to regulate the terms and conditions of its agents and the recruitment procedure for employees and agents. The provision gives the insurer powers to decide on the commission benefits of over 14 lakh agents.

The finance ministry has circulated a draft cabinet note on the changes to be made to the legislation before it is taken up for approval in the monsoon session of Parliament.

LIC, which is governed by a 50-year-old Act, has government backing for all its policies. The public-sector behemoth had 65% market share in first-year premium and 70.8 % share in total policies in 2010. The insurer sold over 37 million policies in the last fiscal.

The relaxation in sovereign backing comes despite the government tightening conditions under which such guarantee can be made available.

The Standing Committee on Finance had strongly opposed the provision in the Bill that empowered the government to limit the extent of sovereign guarantee.

The amendment Bill was reintroduced by the finance minister after it lapsed following the dissolution of the previous Lok Sabha.

The dropping of the clause, seen smoothening the passage the Bill in Parliament, comes amid stiff opposition from private-sector players. State backing for LIC has also been criticised by the Insurance Regulator Development Authority for not allowing a level playing field.

In the Union Budget for 2011-12, the government disclosed for the first time the total financial guarantees given, in order to present a clearer picture of its financial position.

The clause allowing the insurer to frame rules for its agents and the method and decide on the recruitment process of staff had not found favour with the parliamentary panel and insurance agents.

However, the official said, "The corporation should have powers to decide about the welfare of its agents and employees."

A petition was filed in the Supreme Court challenging the bill but was rejected by the court.

The bill seeks to raise the capital base of the state-owned insurer to 100 crore from 5 crore, bringing it on a par with private insurers, both in life and non-life segments, which are required to have a minimum capital base of 100 crore as per IRDA norms.

The bill also seeks to allow LIC to allocate 90% or more such surplus - excess of assets over liabilities - for life insurance policy-holders and the rest to a separate account maintained by LIC.

Unit Liked Insurance Plan and Mutual Funds

Below are some of the differences which will help in taking your decision based on your own risk appetite and your long or short term goal -

1. MFs are for the short-term, ULIPs for the long run .MFs are popular short-term products. Retail investors park their money in MFs so that they can exit when they have made enough gains. But that’s not how ULIPs function. ULIPs are essentially looked upon as long-term instruments where an investor will systematically invest every year with a certain lock-in period. ULIPs are natural way of systematic investment as you pay premiums on a monthly, quarterly, bi-annual or annual basis.

2. MFs are aggressive and churn their portfolioBecause mutual funds have to deliver returns in the short-term, they tend to be more aggressive. The investment philosophy of mutual funds and life insurers differ to some extent. Typically, MFs are more aggressive players who take larger bets on hot sectors.MFs churn their portfolios considerably. Life insurance companies, on the other hand, are far more conservative and take much longer calls on the market

If you are looking long term Benefits, Ulips is best option.
