Reason behind the constitution of the Committee

Considering that the review of the regulations is essential to enable the distribution channel to evolve and to fulfil the objective of spreading insurance coverage to all layers of the society, the IRDAI constituted the 10-member committee.

The new distribution channel of insurance marketing firms was introduced by IRDAI in 2015 with an aim to increase insurance penetration in the country through an area-wise registration approach. The channel has now been in operation for three years.

Firms, which serve as a distribution channel for insurers, are governed by the IRDAI (Registration of Insurance Marketing Firms) Regulations, 2015.
