Renewal of GTI (Group Term Insurance) for the year 2024-25:

As informed earlier, after the firm and conclusive stand by Team AIGETOA in the meeting with LIC officials, finally LIC agreed to offer the premium quotes at 1.60 per one thousand which is at par with the initial rates offered in 2019.

Yesterday LIC conveyed the rates of 2019 at 1.6 per thousand and today the letter has been issued by admin section BSNL CO for the renewal of GTI for the willing employees.

The hard negotiations done by team AIGETOA with LIC officials, resulted in these rates. We also appreciate the efforts of the Admin Team of BSNL CO, who coordinated in a very effective manner.

We further extend our thanks to all those involved in the process for ensuring the competitive premium rates.

Once again we appreciate the efforts of our All India President and Finance Secretary for ensuring this competitive premium for the GTI.

Update on GTI (Group Term Insurance) Negotiations :

For last three days, back to back meetings have been held for negotiations on GTI. The meeting was attended by AIGETOA all India President Shri Veerabhadra Rao and Finance Secretary Shri Badri Kumar Mehta.

While LIC team once again presented a very high initial quote of Rs 3 per Thousand of GTI, team AIGETOA has categorically clarified that any rates above the initial 2019 rates of Rs 1.6 per thousand are not acceptable as the claim ratio has gone down substantially. The team AIGETOA insisted to revise the quote and has negotiated firmly on the matter. The LIC team will revert with their fresh quotes in a day or two.

We extend our thanks to all India President Shri Veerabhadra Rao and Finance Secretary Shri Badri Kumar Mehta for firmly negotiating with LIC team.

Let’s hope for the best. But one thing is very sure that in the absence of proper rates quoted by LIC, the team AIGETOA is not going to accept will insist upon further negotiations
