Investments, Not Premium

According to the report, the government is aiming to raise close to Rs 1 lakh crore (Rs 1 trillion) from the LIC IPO. This will make it the largest IPO in the country till date.

The report further added that in the past few years, the insurer has seen income growth mainly because of rising investments rather than the insurance premium. In FY21, where the net profit increased from Rs 2,713 to Rs 2,907 (7 per cent growth), the increase in premium was very less. The premium grew from Rs 3.79 lakh crore to Rs 4.03 lakh crore.

Largest Life Insurer In India

The latest numbers will help the analysts to compare the government company with private life insurers. However, LIC is still the largest life insurance company with a 63 per cent share in the total renewal premium market. It controls a lion share of 71 per cent premium in rural India, the report said.

Listing of LIC will also be crucial for the government to meet its disinvestment target of Rs 1.75 lakh crore for the year. Till now, the report said, the government has only been able to raise Rs 9,330 crore from the sale of stakes in various PSUs.
