Life insurance is top instrument in India for life goals: Survey
Indians see life insurance as the most handy instrument for planning their major life goals while nearly a third do not have any idea about how much insurance they need, according to a survey by Exide Life Insurance. Life insurance is the top instrument for life goals such as building a house (43 per cent), children's education (38 per cent), retirement (49 per cent) and legacy creation (50 per cent), the survey said, while revealing some of the startling facts.
Through the various subsections of the survey, it is made evident that Indians seldom cover the entirety of financial responsibility. It also brings to light that as an income earner of the family, Indians are inclined towards just earning, saving and to an extent investing for life goals. Image source: Pixabay
Life insurance penetration in India stands at less than 3 per cent in comparison to other developing countries and despite the thrust on financial literacy by government as well as the insurance industry, people still struggle to gauge the level of protection required to themselves and their family, the survey added.
