INSURANCE BROKERS SEEK LOWER MINIMUM CAPITAL REQUIREMENT
Insurance brokers are seeking a reduction in minimum capital requirement for securing a licence. Currently, an insurance broker is required to have a minimum capital base of Rs. 50 lakh while for a composite broker who also does reinsurance business, should have a higher limit of Rs. 2.5 crore. The broking community contributes around 15 per cent of the non-life premium.
