With a premium of Rs. 1.31 trillion collected in the first half of the previous financial year, we saw an overall growth of 38% where the majority of the insurance companies reflected an affirmative growth.

LIC has collected a maximum premium of Rs. 1,24,191 crores in the first half of the financial year 2022-23. Whereas, under the private sector, SBI Life, HDFC Life, ICICI Prudential Life, Bajaj Allianz Life and Aditya Birla Sun Life have collected a fairly high amount of premiums as compared to the previous year.

In comparison to the previous year, a few Life Insurance Companies have shown a considerable increase in the premiums collected. In the first half of the FY 2022-23, the private sector insurers have collectively attained a premium collection business of Rs.57,785 crore out of a total of Rs. 18,1976 crores. However, we have a few insurers who declined in the premium collection business. Insurers such as Aegon Life, Exide Life, Canara HSBC OBC Life showed a drop in the premium collection to Rs. 1.79, Rs.413 and Rs. 1,219 crores respectively as compared to previous year.

With the new business figure growing in each quarter, the Private Life Insurance companies are acquiring more market share, breaking the stereotypes over the decades. With LIC of India being still a major contributor to the insurance industry, we can expect to see more business growth in the next quarter.
