IRDA in regard to penalty on Tata AIA Life said, “It was observed that Tata AIA Life took no corrective action against the penalty order dated August 13, 2012 for the violations of 2010-11 and 2011-12. In both these previous FY, the insurer was penalized for excess payouts to corporate agents, but they failed to correct their repeated violation. The penalty of Rs 10 Lakhs imposed on the insurer will be remitted within a period of 15 days from the date of receipt of this order.”    

For IndiaFirst Life Insurance, IRDA retorted, “The insurer non-financial incentive is unacceptable as Clause 21 of Corporate Agents guidelines ban insurance companies to pay corporate agents or incur expenses towards them except towards co-branding advertisements.”

The regulator further added, “The non-financial incentives rendered to the corporate agent’s staff are accounted under head commission, which is again the violation of norms. In regards to fact and guidelines, the violations committed by IndiaFirst Life Insurance are grave, and IRDA has the complete authority to exercise its powers under section 102 of the Act, and thus has imposed a penalty of Rs 5 Lakhs for violation.”
