“While we remain sensitive about the health impact and loss of lives due to the pandemic and continue to focus on employee, customer and partner safety norms, opening up of the economy has led to a pickup in activity levels on the ground. This has also resulted in a marginal uplift in household income and spends,” said Vibha Padalkar, MD & CEO, HDFC Life Insurance.
“Insurance as a category has emerged stronger as a vehicle to protect one’s family and realise their long term financial goals. Customers are more active in decision making resulting in traction in the individual business.”
