So Do We Need to Buy Insurance from Gramin Dak Sevaks?
As of now, about 2 lakh postal service providers that include postmen and Gramin Dak Sevaks are well-equipped with the micro-ATMs. Biometric devices also play a key role in the promotion and distribution of insurance products.
Does it Mean that They Can Advertise and Sell Any or Selective Policy?
Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India under the POSP model allows the sale of specific retail products.
The product scope encompasses healthcare and medical products, car insurance
, and personal accident. Other products are tailor-made to address the protection needs.
With this tie-up, the IPPB has strengthened the offerings of the insurance portfolio. Hopefully, more products will be added in the prospective times ensuring the financial well-being of the customers. The current service delivery model helps customers to avail insurance services digitally in a simple, economical and convenient manner.
This will help to increase the awareness and penetration of motor, health insurance
, etc. amongst the segment that is financially excluded across the country. The focus is on the underserved and unbanked customers.
Thinking, Who are the Underserved Customers?
The underserved customers essentially include those who do not have direct access to the insurance touchpoints. With the strategic alliance, the mail carriers will reach out to the Tier-II and Tier-III or the local doorways. It would help to provide the insurance at the fingertips of the customers following the statement of the insurance company.
