New India Assurance reaches Rs10,000 crore premium collection mark in FY12

“Though all the verticals witnessed good growth, majority of the premium collection came from motor and health segments,” a New India Assurance official said

Public sector general insurance company, New India Assurance has achieved Rs10,000 crore premium collection for the FY12, on the back of strong growth in motor and health insurance verticals, a top company official said.

“We have reached Rs 10,000 crore premium collection in the last fiscal year on the back of sound growth in both domestic and international business,” the official told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

As per the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA), New India Assurance had collected Rs6,367.33 crore in premium amount for the period April 2010 to February 2011, which was 17.2% growth over its business of Rs5,431.9 crore over the corresponding period of the previous fiscal. Referring to the growth in various verticals, the official said motor and health insurance segment contributed significant part of the total premium collected during the last fiscal.

“Though all the verticals witnessed good growth, majority of the premium collection came from motor and health segments,” he said. The official further said growth prospects look better in the current fiscal due to uptick in economic activity.

“We are hopeful of maintaining the present growth momentum in the current fiscal as the economic outlook looks better during this year,” he said. Also, the expected rise in risk premium is likely to benefit the company in FY13 as per industry experts.
