In India, the insurance sector has recently flavored the taste of liberalization. The recent liberalization with the passing of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Act, 1999 permitted private players to participate in the Insurance sector. Life insurance is still a domain of the Public Sector, but a host of private insurance players have emerged in other sectors of insurance. Currently, foreign participants are permitted to hold only up to 26 % shareholding in an Indian joint venture.
