10 lakh insurance agents call it quits in 2011

More than 10 lakh insurance agents quit the profession in fiscal 2011 as new rules on sale of Ulips made it unviable to remain in business. Data compiled by IRDA for the first time on addition and deletion of agents in any year showed the number of agents leaving was about 35%, or 10.45 lakh of the total number of agents at the beginning of the year. Some five lakh odd agents left during the first half of year, when the regulator was preparing the set of norms for unit linked policies which were selling like hot cake at that time.
