The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has created this special category of insurance policies to promote coverage among the economically weaker sections of the society. The premiums of these policies are comparatively low.
Micro Insurance Plans Very Popular
Debashish Dutta, LIC agent associated with Million Dollar Roundtable said, “LIC micro insurance plans are very popular.
Due to high premiums, people from the economically weaker section of the society are often unable to opt for traditional life insurance plans.
Micro insurance plans are primarily designed for those low income groups, so that they can also cover their lives. The premium under these categories is comparatively less,”
