''We garnered Rs 812 crore new business premium in the first quarter ended June 30, 2006, and wrote 302482 policies during the period,'' Mr Sikdar said adding that the company enjoys 12.1 per cent of the overall insurance market and 32 per cent share of the private insurance market.
Mr Sikdar today launched the first of its kind premium guarantee product and immediate annuity product for the retired persons.

The product is available for a minimum premium of Rs 8000 per year for a policy term ranging between 10-30 years.
The immediate annuity plan is aimed for retirees with a stable secured income for life. A person between the ages of 45 and 80 years can purchase the policy by making a single lump sum payment with a selection option of seven annuity plans.
