               On the occasion of this announcement, K. G. Krishnamoorthy Rao, CEO, Future Generali India
               Insurance Company said "Health Insurance is a growing line of business with a very high potential.
               Future Generali is a serious player in Health Insurance and looks at growing its market share.
               Service level is the most important differentiator and to ensure we provide the finest customer
               experience, we have decided to directly service our clients through our in-house servicing unit
               Future Generali Health (FGH).

               Today health insurance consists of around 15% of Future Generali’s overall business and we look
               at increasing this to 20% over the next few years. The company will be concentrating on retail
               health and targets to increase its share in this segment and has targeted an overall health
               premium of `110 crores. We will look at aggressively increasing this in the next few years,” added
               Mr. Rao.

               This initiative will help Future Generali in capturing, collating and analyzing high quality data that
               will contribute towards product development and pricing. Efficient data management capabilities
               will also help structure tailor made solutions for corporate clients thereby ensuring a combination
               of excellent service and cost management.

               FGH will start with over 1000 hospitals in its network and will expand the list as business and
               requirements grow. The Company is also creating a network of Diagnostic centers across country
               for pre-policy check up.

               Recently, Future Generali has revised its flagship product, Health Suraksha, making it more
               customer friendly. It is a hospitalization expenses product with sums insured ranging from `1 lac to
               `10 lacs and the product has plans with coverage and pricing suitable for rural as well as urban
               clientele. The company earlier launched a Critical Illness Product – Future Criticare, besides
