Tata AIA Life Announces ‘Revive’ to Give Customers Opportunity to Reinstate Lapsed Insurance Policies

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 02nd November:-  Tata AIA Life Insurance today announced the launch of ‘Revive’, an initiative to reinstate lapsed insurance policies. As part of the scheme, customers will be given waivers on health certificate and interest for selected lapsed policies (subject to underwriting exclusions and other terms and conditions of the policy). The offer will be valid till November 30, 2016.
Often, for a number of reasons, policy holders cannot pay their premiums even after the grace period. The inevitable happens and the insurance policy gets lapsed. Once lapsed, the policy will not provide any benefit or coverage to the consumers, exposing them and their loved ones to financial risks. This is an undesirable scenario dreaded by most policy holders. Tata AIA understands the inconvenience the lapse can cause customers, since sometimes they may fail to pay the premium due to unavoidable circumstances.
In order to protect their customers, Tata AIA Life, through the Revive initiative, will reinstate lapsed policies with premium due from January 1, 2012 with the subject to terms and conditions of the offer. As a mark of its commitment towards its loyal customers, the company has extended the offer even to those policy holders who have not paid their premium after 4th policy year.  
Commenting on the Revive campaign, Amitabh Verma, Chief Operating Officer, Tata AIA Life said that revival of life insurance policy is like extending a helping hand for policyholders to safeguard their families financially along with the benefit of no additional premium cost. It is an opportunity for all those who were unable to pay their premium on the due date. The initiative is a part of our endeavours to reduce the protection gap in the country and simplifying processes for better customer experience.

Digitization and Disruptive Technologies Spurring Banks to Invest in New Business Models


By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 02nd November:-  Infosys Finacle, part of EdgeVerve Systems, a product subsidiary of Infosys (NYSE: INFY), and Efma, a global not-for-profit organization today launched the eighth annual study of ‘Innovation in retail banking’. The research revealed that 77 percent of banks regard the threat from technology companies, start-ups, retailers and/or telecom players as high or very high. Over half now consider the threat from technology companies and start-up challenger banks as significant.
However, the research, in which 158 banks from 56 countries participated, showed that banks have largely embraced digitization and are aggressively adopting new technologies in order to innovate. The proportion of banks with an innovation strategy has increased to 74 percent in 2016, from only 37 percent in 2009. In addition, banks are now more likely to collaborate with startups in order to stay competitive, with nearly three quarters (73 percent) seeing them as the best way to leverage new technologies.
Vincent Bastid, CEO, Efma said that this year’s global banking study shows that banks have resolutely turned to start-ups to drive their own digital transformations. However, banks are being held back by old legacy systems and are still divided on where and how much to invest. Banks should think globally and embrace new ways of doing business. 
Sanat Rao, Global Head of Infosys Finacle, EdgeVerve said that changing customer preferences, rapid evolution of technology and pressures from outside of the traditional banking world are accelerating a major transformation of the banking industry. The confluence of these forces is putting digitization at the center of technology renewal, enabling multi-channel touch-points for superior customer service. From the research findings and customer interactions, it will likely be the development of open API’s, AI and block chain that shall cause the next big change in banking.
