Efforts are being made by Finance Ministry and Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority (IRDA) to increase Insurance penetration in the country.
During February, 2015 Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority has released regulations to govern Insurance Marketing Firms. Details are available on https://www.irda.gov.in/ADMINCMS/cms/frmGeneral_NoYearLayout.aspx?page=PageNo2443
This is a new and welcome development towards increasing the role of Insurance Intermediaries.
  • Insurance Surveyors/ Loss Assessors
  • Share Brokers
  • Commodities Brokers
  • Customer Service Centers (CSC’s)
  • Insurance Agents
  • Mutual Fund Distributors
  • Retired Insurance Personnel
  • DSA of Banks handling home loans/ auto loans/ LAP/ credit cards
to upgrade themselves and increase the business manifold to take the benefit of growth taking place in the Districts/ Rural Area in the country.
We are aware of that existing Insurance intermediaries operating in the country are:
  • Insurance Agents
  • Insurance Brokerage Firms
  • Corporate Agents
  • Banc assurance
  • CSC’s
  • Consultants
As per the policy of the Government of India the concept of Financial Inclusion has to be taken to all parts of the country. We are convinced that addition of IMF as an Insurance Intermediary will be a great step towards increasing penetration of insurance in the interior districts/ rural areas of the country.
Insurance Marketing Firms (IMF) Regulations are a great opportunity for any entrepreneur or existing firm for setting up IMF in one district to be selected by the entrepreneur. Assuming that it grows at a good rate then IMF can over period of time have number of branches in the district. It can be:
Within District Town/ City 3
In Taluka/ Tehsil 4-5 (one in each taluka/ tehsil)
In Big Villages/ Industrial areas 10-20
As per regulations IMF will be permitted to sell products of following
Life Insurance Companies 2
General Insurance Companies 2
Health Insurance Companies 2
It can also undertake work/ assignments of Surveyor/ Loss Assessment.

  • IRDA (Regulator)
