Customers in India who purchased insurance plans faced major problems a decade ago. This was due to a lack of sufficient information about insurance products, as misleading information was fast increasing. During the last decade, from 2000 to 2008, as the country gained pace and expanded economically, the Indian Insurance Industry tightened its grip. There was a full disruption in the country’s private sector insurers venturing and gaining importance at the time.
They had a taste of fierce rivalry when the insurance industry was dominated by a few giant public-sector insurers. At the start of this new digital era, there was a flood of new insurance products and essential information. It aided the unrestrained growth of India’s insurance business.
