There is a marginal drop in equity-oriented funds. However, it is pertinent to note that we only have two listed asset management companies in our data set,” the report stated.

“This was mainly due to an increase in premium for health, fire and crop segment. There is a decline in premium income for the motor segment as new vehicle sales are much slower due to slack in economic activity. The overall fall in PAT is mainly on account of the loss reported by state-owned general insurance companies compared to the huge profit reported in the March 2020 quarter. As far as life insurance companies are concerned, the growth in profit is largely attributed to positive renewal premiums.
