07/09/2021

Jul-21 was a month of 11% contraction in life premiums but new business premiums (NBP) bounced back to 2.88% growth in Aug-21. Interestingly, while LIC reported lower premiums in Aug-21 comparable to last year, the premium collections of private insurers was sharply higher YoY.

Big daddy LIC saw the NBP falling by -3.82% in Aug-21 to Rs.18,961 crore. However, private insurers saw new business premiums grow by an impressive 20.94% yoy to Rs.8,860 crore. 

This is the highest levels of premium collected by private insurers in a month.

For FY22 (Apr-Aug), LIC saw NBP premiums taper by -6.75% YOY while private insurers saw premiums grow 23.05%. As a result, overall NBP premiums FY22 (Apr-Aug) was up 1.62%.
