If you are residing in Satara City in Maharashtra, you are privileged to be amidst a natural as well as a historical place. Historically, during the sixteenth century it was the seat of the Chatrapati Shahu I, The King of Maratha Empire. Naturally, it is situated near the confluence of the river Krishna and its tributary the Venna. It has its further recognition because of the 7 forts near the city. To add to all these, it is declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site as the Kaas Plateau transforms into a WildFlower Wonderland.
With all these significant features about Satara, it may sound odd to listen that some privileged people get company even after their death. Yes! It’s a fact and such an unusual company is given by the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC of India). It is a Government of India-owned Insurance and Investment company. It has its headquarter in Maharashtra and has about 1.15 lakh employees in 2020. Besides the regular employees, LIC of India recruits agents for carrying out its insurance business.
Insurance is a sum assured to be paid for the happening or not happening of a particular agreed event during an agreed period. For getting this benefit, an agreed amount, known as a premium, has to be paid at an agreed periodicity; such as monthly, quarterly, and annually or one-time payment. An LIC agent gets variable slabs of commission on premiums paid by the person insured. Usually, the percentage of first commission is higher. As and when, the insured person pays the commission to the LIC of India; your account is automatically credited with the commission due to you.
In order to cope up with the increased demand for increased life coverage and changed life style, the Satara Division of LIC of India has taken up initiative for recruiting LIC agents for the division from the city and its nearby places viz. Rahimatpur Wai, Panchgani, Umbraj, Aundh, Mahabaleshwar and Nagaon. You may read the following if you intend to join as an LIC Agent
