Notes

1- Beshak Ratings data was last updated in September 2023.

2- All data was sourced from public disclosures (FY 2023-2024, Q1 and FY 2022-23, Q4), insurer websites, and the IRDAI website. Except Claim Amount Settlement Ratio, for which the data was taken from the IRDAI Annual Report 2021-22.

3- Only features that are currently available for purchase online were considered when calculating the Beshak Ratings.

4- In the Premium Ratings, we do not display premium amounts - instead, we show the product's relative pricing compared to the median.

5- Premium for all plans is calculated for the following profile: 30-year-old, non-smoker, married male, for a sum assured of INR 1 Crore, up to the age of 65 years, paying annual premiums, till the end of the policy. Except for these plans:

  ・Bajaj Allianz Life Diabetic Term Plan Sub 8 HbA1c - Premium is calculated for a 30-year-old, non-smoker, married male, having Type 2 diabetes, with HbA1c level between 6.5 to 7, for a sum assured of INR 1 Crore, up to the age of 55 years, paying annual premiums for 25 years. 

  ・IndiaFirstLife Guaranteed Protection Plus Plan - Premium is calculated for a 30-year-old, non-smoker, married male, for a sum assured of INR 1 Crore, up to the age of 75 years, paying annual premiums for 40 years. 

  ・TATA AIA Maha Raksha Supreme - Premium is calculated for a 30-year-old, non-smoker, married male, for a sum assured of INR 2 Crore, up to the age of 65 years, paying annual premiums, till the end of the policy. 

6- The overall ratings do not include the premium rating. This is because we believe that the affordability of premiums is a personal thing. Something that seems unaffordable or expensive to one person could seem cheap and affordable to another, regardless of their income. We leave it up to our users to decide whether the price they pay seems reasonable for the features they receive.

7- The Response time on Twitter (Beta) was calculated using a sample set of tweets from February to August 2023 - (Analyzed in September 2023).

8- Claims Experience was assessed based on an audit of various processes and facilities offered by the insurers, during claim settlement.
