According to provisional data from the Life Insurance Council, life insurers collected premiums of Rs 1.38 lakh crore in 2015-16, up from Rs 1.13 lakh crore in 2014-15. Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) posted 25 per cent growth in first-year premiums. Private insurers clocked 18 per cent growth and collected Rs 40,983 crore in premium.
