INTRODUCTIO
N
A.1 Introduction

Indian Insurance industry is emerging rapidly after year 2000. To survive in this highly
competitive scenario, managers are being pressured to improve quality, recruit quality, give the

6
7

best training and skilled people and eliminate inefficiency. The collective efforts of the
employer, managers and other relative people assume relevance in this context. And this is where
marketing management and human resources play important role.

Training is very important in today’s scenario. But still it is ignored and considered as a
secondary aspect. In case of insurance industry recruitment and training only decide success or
failure of company.

We have made an attempt to study this aspect of Insurance industry in my project. In this project,
we have tried to learn, what is the impression of training in MNYL? We have tried to find out
how exactly training is very important for this firm as well as this industry, which are the
different strategies firm use to train quality people and so on. It is more qualitative rather than a
quantitative data.

To get knowledge of above questions and to fulfill the requirements for my project on “A Study
on training program done by max New York life at various levels’. We have worked in
MNYL and searched some internet sites.

A.2 Brief History of Insurance Sector in India

The insurance sector in India has come a full circle from being an open competitive market to
nationalization and back to a liberalized market again.

Tracing the developments in the Indian insurance sector reveals the 360-degree turn witnessed
over a period of almost 190 years.

7
8

The business of life insurance in India in its existing form started in India in the year 1818 with
the establishment of the Oriental Life Insurance Company in Calcutta.

Some of the important milestones in the life insurance business in India are:

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.

Some of the important milestones in the general insurance business in India are:

1907 - The Indian Mercantile Insurance Ltd. set up, the first company to transact all classes of
general insurance business.
1957 - General Insurance Council, a wing of the Insurance Association of India, frames a code of
conduct for ensuring fair conduct and sound business practices.
1968 - The Insurance Act amended to regulate investments and set minimum solvency margins
and the Tariff Advisory Committee set up.
1972 - The General Insurance Business (Nationalization) Act, 1972 nationalized the general
insurance business in India with effect from 1st January 1973.

107 insurers amalgamated and grouped into four companies viz. the National Insurance
Company Ltd., the New India Assurance Company Ltd., the Oriental Insurance Company Ltd.
and the United India Insurance Company Ltd. GIC incorporated as a company.

Indian Insurance Industry:

Learn about Insurance may be described as a social device to reduce or eliminate risk of life
and property. Under the plan of insurance, a large number of people associate themselves by
sharing risk, attached to individual.

The risk, which can be insured against include fire, the peril of sea, death, incident, & burglary.
Any risk contingent upon these may be insured against at a premium commensurate with the risk
involved.

Insurance is actually a contract between 2 parties whereby one party called insurer undertakes in
exchange for a fixed sum called premium to pay the other party happening of a certain event.
Insurance is a contract whereby, in return for the payment of premium by the insured, the
insurers pay the financial losses suffered by the insured as a result of the occurrence of
unforeseen events.
With the help of Insurance, large number of people exposed to a similar risk make contributions
to a common fund out of which the losses suffered by the unfortunate few, due to accidental
events, are made good.

Present Scenario

9
10

The Government of India liberalised the insurance sector in March 2000 with the passage of the
Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) Bill, lifting all entry restrictions for
private players and allowing foreign players to enter the market with some limits on direct
foreign ownership. Under the current guidelines, there is a 26 percent equity cap for foreign
partners in an insurance company. There is a proposal to increase this limit to 49 percent.

The opening up of the sector is likely to lead to greater spread and deepening of insurance in
India and this may also include restructuring and revitalizing of the public sector companies. In
the private sector 12 life insurance and 8 general insurance companies have been registered. A
host of private Insurance companies operating in both life and non-life segments have started
selling their insurance policies since 2001.

Insurance companies:

IRDA has so far granted registration to 12 private life insurance companies and 9 general
insurance companies. If the existing public sector insurance companies are included, there are
currently 13 insurance companies in the life side and 13 companies operating in general
insurance business. General Insurance Corporation has been approved as the "Indian reinsurer"
for underwriting only reinsurance business.

14
15

 Money back policies: This type of policy is for periodic payments of partial survival
benefits during the term of the policy as long as the policy holder is alive.

 Group insurance: This type of insurance offers life insurance protection under group
policies to various groups such as employers-employees, professionals, co-operatives etc
it also provides insurance coverage for people in certain approved occupations at the
lowest possible premium cost.

 Term life insurance policies: This type of insurance covers risk only during the selected
term period. If the policy holder survives the term, risk cover comes to an end. These
types of policies are for those people who are unable to pay larger premium required for
endowment and whole life policies. No surrender, loan or paid up values are in such
policies.

 Whole life insurance policies: This type of policy runs as long as the policyholder is
alive and is covered for the entire life of the policyholder. In this policy the insured
amount and the bonus is payable only to nominee on the death of policy holder.

 Joint life insurance policies: These policies are similar to endowment policies in
maturity benefits and risk cover, but joint life policies cover two lives simultaneously
such as married couples. Sum assured is payable on the first death and again on the death
of survival during the term of the policy.

 Pension plan: a pension plan or annuity is an investment over a certain number of years
but does not provide any life insurance cover. It offers a guaranteed income either for a
life or certain period.

 Unit linked insurance plan: ULIP is a kind of insurance plan which provides life cover
as well as return on premium paid over a certain period of time. The investment is
denoted as units and represented by the value called as net asset value (NAV).

The products offered by Max New York are :

 Life Partner Plus Plan  20 year Endowment (Par) Plan

Plan Convertible Plan (Non - Par)

 Level Term Plan  LifeLine MediCash Plus Plan

 LifeLine-Safety Net Plan  Life Pay Money Back

 Life Maker Gold Plan  Smart Assure

The latest product that MNLY has come up with is known as the SMART EXPRESS where the
minimum premium is 50,000 but the benefit of this policy if taken on a yearly mode is since it
being a ULIP product and the markets trend not looking too great the value of the fund freezes
when the stock price increases hence it to an extent offers a fixed return it can say that one who
invest in this plan is assured of a positive return. This product was introduced since it had to
discontinue its very famous product Life Invest again this was due to the guidelines of IRDA
when it says if the plan crosses a certain limit of sum assured offered it has to close the product.

Onsite Workshops for Leadership Team

Employees need more than bosses... They need mentors: Professionals skilled at
assessing employee development needs and committed to guiding employees toward professional
success.
Team Leadership Workshop provides managers with proven techniques for effective personnel
management. By helping leaders understand and address their employees' requirements, this interactive
seminar offers significant benefit to managers at all levels. New supervisors gain a solid grounding in the
concept of ''leadership,'' while more experienced managers refresh their commitment to teaching and
coaching their team members.

This training program provides healthy perspectives for managers at all levels, making it
an ideal morale-boosting leadership development experience for mixed groups of front-line
supervisors and senior staff members.

B.2 Training programs for Success

Leadership Training for Success

All managers need methods. Leaders need to know the most effective techniques for
guiding teams, mentoring individuals, and validating the results. Without solid methods,
managers will revert use a one-size-fits-all approach to leadership that reflects the leader's
personality, rather than the employees' needs.

20
21

Committed, mentoring leadership is essential to employee morale, productivity, and


retention.

A Results-Oriented Training Program

Team Leadership Workshop provides proven methods and procedures for successful
people management. Participants receive a step-by-step plan for guiding each employee toward
success.
This workshop includes elements of Frank Whyte's nationally respected Team Building
Workshops expanding upon that foundation to help leaders:

• Recognize each employee's personality preferences and supervisory needs,


• Align their leadership style with those of their bosses, colleagues, and subordinates,
• Develop competent and committed employees by mentoring and guiding their employees
toward success,
• Schedule their management responsibilities to ensure that nothing is left to chance, and
• Use practiced, real-world scenarios to resolve challenges and remove barriers.

Analysis of the table:

The above chart shows that advisors only have more knowledge than telecallers, marketing
executives and new advisors. Advisors will complete the deals. But after that everything will
be taken care by operations executives and telecallers. Without sufficient knowledge these
both people can’t work well. When the telecaller is calling to customer for renewal premium
that person should have a knowledge how the premium should calculate, and they should
know any extra charges for late payment, and how much grace period will be… these things
should be known even by telecallers and operations executives too.

CONCLUSION

E.1 CONCLUSION
It has been a great experience working with Max New York Life. We have gained a lot of
knowledge and improved immensely on my skills. we got the opportunity to meet and
communicate with many people and undertake responsibility. We feel that MNYL is a great
organization with plenty scope for growth.

In this Knowledge-based economy, training helps people to learn how to do the things
differently or to the different things. Products are now increasingly knowledge-intensive; for
these employers are responsible for providing opportunities for continued learning. To cope with
the challenges and competitiveness in the world, every organization needs the services of trained
persons for performing the activities in the systemic way. So, training program plays a key role
in individual as well as organizational performance.
