HDFC Sells 9% Stake in the JV to Standard Life

HDFC recently sold 9 percent of its stake in HDFC Standard Life to its British partner, Standard Life for over Rs1, 700 crore. This has led to an increase in the foreign investor’s existing share from 26 percent to 35 percent. This stake sale to Standard Life was proposed in August 2015 to happen for the said amount, as the government of India has permitted up to 49 percent FDI in the insurance sector of the country.

Following the receipt of awaited approval, HDFC has successfully completed the stake sale to Standard Life.

The company, in a regulatory filing, once said that it had plans to sell about 17.95 crore shares worth Rs. 1, 705 crore in HDFC Standard Life to its British partner, which comes out to be 9 percent of its existing stake in the JV. As a result of the stake sale, HDFC has got its stake in the JV reduced to 61.65 percent.

Fraudulent claims lead HDFC Life to discontinue policy sales in select localities

Some recent cases of claiming through fraud have been reported in in small towns such as Kubernagar in Gujarat and Ganjam in Odisha.

This action has been taken with an intention to prevent fraudulent claims.

The company has also barred a number of local hospitals from selling the policies to the people living there. The company has also found out that some serious and intentional administrative lapses in a few medical centres had caused heavy losses to the entire industry. As a consequence those medical centres have been put on the 'watch list'.

Amitabh Chaudhry, CEO at HDFC Life said that the company is now sharing records on employees, distributors, medical centres, and locations and also blacklisted the ones participating in frauds. He also said that the company will either reduce its exposure in these markets or absolutely stop selling insurance.
