Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India Managing Director A K Dasgupta, on Thursday, said the steps contemplated by Irda on the Ulips would not have much impact.
Briefing reporters here, he said market players were, however, still awaiting for a lot of clarity to ensue from the insurance regulator on the Ulips as also Direct Tax Code and what shape it would take thereafter.
He, however, said Ulips will not take any large scale hit as people would still covet it in the market given its attractive features.
He said, LICs MarketPlus1 had not seen any impact due to the imbroglio and that it constituted 70 per cent of the new premiums of LIC.
Earlier, LIC entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Vijaya Bank for retailing of its various insurance products on a referral basis.
Vijaya Bank Chairman & Managing Director Albert Tauro said all popular products of LIC would be offered at the banks branches across the country wherein 250 LICs bancassurance officials and 300 financial executives would be given necessary assistance for retailing of the products.
