Private sector insurer Bajaj Allianz General Insurance hopes to close the current fiscal with a gross premium of Rs 4,000 crore.

“Our growth rate will be more than the industry average and we hope to touch a premium of Rs 4,000 crore this fiscal, which will be a growth of 23-24 per cent against the industry average of around 20 per cent,” company Managing Director and Chief Executive Tapan Singhel told PTI.

He also said the combined loss ratio and the expense ratio are likely to be lower this fiscal.

According to the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority, the company has posted a gross written premium (GWP) of Rs 2,505.62 crore during April-November this fiscal against Rs 2,089.83 crore in the same period last fiscal.

Singhel also said health and motor insurance will remain the key growth drivers in the near future.

‘Eezee Tab’

The company is planning to launch an application on the Android platform, called `Eezee Tab’, which will enable customers to register low-intensity claims and upload the photographs of the vehicle accident for quick claim settlements.

“Through this application, a policy can be issued to the customer by the agent at the customer’s place, which will increase our presence in rural areas,” Singhel said.

Bajaj Allianz is a joint venture between Germany’s Allianz Group and Bajaj Finserv, with 74 per cent stake with the latter.
