The Indian Insurance Awards - 7th Edition 2017

The 7th Edition of The Indian Insurance Awards will be held on July 21, 2017 at Mumbai. These awards recognize and honour the achievements of insurance companies in India that have met measurable and tangible business objectives. 

Fintelekt enforces the highest level of transparency and independence to the evaluation process. Each submission is reviewed, analyzed and processed internally, with a final review by an eminent jury. 

While the awards categories have been consistent over the past few years, new categories may be added each year to reflect changing dynamics with respect to regulation and market trends. Over the years, The Indian Insurance Awards have become an industry benchmark and have evolved to being the most coveted and aspirational awards for insurers in India.
