Aviva Life Insurance launches two new insurance plans
Aviva Life Insurance has launched two new insurance plans-Aviva Life Shield Platinum and Aviva Dhan Varsha. Aviva Life Shield Platinum comes at a competitive cost with options to choose the protection need ranging from life protection, income replacement or loan protection. Aviva Dhan Varsha, traditional investment cum protection plan which gives a guaranteed addition of 6% to 9% of the life cover along with life protection and riders to secure one's future.
TR Ramachandran, CEO and managing director, Aviva Life Insurance India said, "The two products that we have introduced are on a traditional platform and seek to address concerns on loan protection, income protection as well as offer guaranteed returns. India is grossly underinsured with only 4% of insurance penetration and a growing base of insurable population in the age group of 15-59 years. We believe that term insurance products like Aviva LifeShield Platinum will act as a catalyst in providing protection to many more Indians at affordable rates."
