Want India to become a pensioned and an insured society – Arun Jaitley

LIC declares special Diamond Jubilee bonus on all eligible policies.
 Union Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley today highlighted the need for strengthening social security apparatus in the country to make India a pensioned and an insured society.

Speaking at the Diamond Jubilee celebration event of the Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India in Mumbai today, Mr. Jaitley said the parameters of social security have to be significantly improved. “When we evolve from being a developing society to a developed society, the main challenge before India is how well it can look after its citizens in the event of a personal crisis” he said.

The Minister lamented that we still have not fully realized the importance of adequate social security. He said a proposal made in the budget aimed at creating a pensioned society had to be rolled back following unanimous opposition by workers’ unions. “The value of social security was not fully realized” he said adding “this resistance will soon fade away”.

Mr Jaitley stressed on the importance of low cost life insurance, low premium accident insurance policies, crop insurance scheme to protect farmers, health insurance scheme for poor and senior citizens, terming them as essential instruments of social security.

The Finance Minister said the LIC of India, with its unmatched branch network, deep penetration across the length and breadth of the country was most suited for expanding the social security net. “As the economy grows further, the need for deeper penetration and greater expansion of insurance will be felt. LIC and others will not only have greater relevance, but their business will also expand” he added.

Mr Arun Jaitley commended the LIC of India for maintaining its leadership position even in a competitive world. “In a competitive environment it is always the private sector which flourishes, as it is free from bureaucratic controls and can take market centric decisions, whereas State instrumentalities are bound by various processes and regulations. But LIC, which began in a monopoly environment, stands as a shining example of a state institution standing up to competition”.  

The Finance Minister said if LIC were a listed company it would be the most valuable company in India and among the biggest in the world itself. LIC’s ability to utilize its large corpus to finance various projects makes it a key player in India's growth story, Mr Jaitley added.

On the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee celebration LIC of India declared a special Diamond Jubilee bonus on all eligible life insurance policies. It also launched the new LIC Diamond Bima policy on the occasion.

Union Minister of State for Finance Mr. Arjun Ram Meghwal, Financial Secretary Ms. Anjuly Chib Duggal, Chairman LIC Mr. S K Roy, Managing Directors- Mr. V K Sharma and Ms. Usha Sangwan were among those present.
