India : NIC plans to come up with credit insurance product.
Already, the firm has won approval from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) to introduce a credit insurance product, says, N.S.R. Chandraprasad, Chairman and Managing Director.
NIC has joined hands with France-headquartered Tinubu Square which is into credit insurance across the globe for technical know-how.
Business houses selling on credit terms in the domestic and export markets are offered with credit insurance, which aims at protecting the business house against non-payment following a customer s insolvency or default.
Earlier, NIC had a credit insurance product, which proved to be unsuccessful, with the insurer garnering business only worth Rs 2-3 crore per year. Later, when the IRDA banned the sale of any form of credit insurance in 2010 following huge claims on a cover granted by the state-owned Oriental Insurance to Paramount Airways, the product was completely phased out.
