All public sector companies reported profits, the report said.

The premium income in the life insurance sector was almost flat at Rs 2.87-lakh crore, driven largely by increase in business of Life Insurance Corporation of India; private insurers’ business declined 7.4 per cent.

The market share of LIC increased from 70.68 per cent to 72.70 per cent. About 442 lakh new policies were issued.

At the same time, the management expenses had gone up due to increase commission expenses, among others.

The assets under management had grown 11.5 per cent at Rs 16.80-lakh crore.
