Overview of Insurance Company License

The ability to buy and sell insurance products is granted by holding an insurance company license. The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) was established as a nodal organization to govern the insurance sector in India with the intention of obtaining an IRDAI insurance license for your insurance company

The state insurance commissioner is in charge of issuing the license for the purpose of purchasing and offering various types of insurance, such as life and disability, health, auto, and worker's compensation. Anyone who resides in one state but sells insurance in neighboring states is required to have an IRDA insurance license for each state. Although it is not necessary to collaborate with an enrolled office to obtain the license, it is necessary once you intend to work jointly

Before submitting an application for an insurance company license, it is required that all components get a Certificate from the Authority. The IRDA can provide the license required for several forms of insurance, such as life insurance, fire insurance, marine insurance, and so forth. In any case, it is important to keep in mind that the license for a life insurance company cannot be combined with another type of insurance company.
