Insurance Amendment Bill

The Union Cabinet has approved the amendments to Insurance Laws Amendment Bill 2008. Hitherto the insurance companies were allowed foreign investment of upto 26%. Now it will be a composite cap of 49% foreign investment which includes FDI and foreign portfolio investment.

Management of insurance companies will remain in Indian’s hands.

Investment above 26% will still require approval of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board.
