ING Life Insurance India News
ING Life, in collaboration with Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Namma Metro) has recently introduced an initiative named Life in a Metro. The program was launched at the Namma Metro Insurance Awareness Event.
The main aim of the program was to get access to people who commute on a daily basis using the Namma Metro facilities and make them aware of how important it is to save for the future and protect it as well.
As part of this program, kiosks were established by the insurer in the 6 functional metro stations of Bangalore – these structures will provide daily travelers more information on savings and insurance while they are on the move.
ING also set up several interactive activities to engage the passengers. To encourage participation they even provided prepaid Namma Metro passes that were valued at INR 1000 each. The program went on for a 15 day period starting from March 5 to March 19, 2012.
Mohit Goel, the EVP Marketing of ING Life Insurance had stated that Namma Metro was already a preferred mode of transport for Bangalore residents and also expressed satisfaction at the opportunity to collaborate with Namma Metro for the program which he said was the first such initiative.
The insurer has also recently handed its advertising responsibilities to Law & Kenneth. The procedure for this deal had been initiated during October 2011 and its main aim was to discover a strategic associate who could help realize the growth plans of ING with its consumer know-how and planning capabilities.
Goel has stated that the process to find the advertising partner has been an intense and fulfilling one. All the applicants were tested on their planning capabilities and strategic thought procedures.
He stated that ING followed a different policy from normal ones that look at factors like capability levels and creative production. Goel has expressed satisfaction at the expertise that Law & Kenneth have in areas like strategy and planning.
In 2012 ING has also launched 3 new insurance products – ING Secured Income Insurance Plan, ING Critical Illness Rider, and ING STAR Life.
The ING Secured Income Insurance Plan is basically a endowment policy that offers long term benefits for the insured and his or her family. This plan also provides a consistent income in case anything unfortunate happens to the insured. This plan has two variants – Secured Income Insurance Plus and Secured Income Insurance Pay.
The ING STAR Life provides life cover and tax exemption facilities. The premium payment period of this plan is 3 years but the advantages are available throughout the term period of 12 years.
The ING Critical Illness Riders provide the policyholders a lump sum in case they are found to have any critical illness covered by the program. There are two types of this program – Limited Premium Payment Term and Regular Premium Payment Term and provides coverage for either 4 or 25 critical ailments.
