(d) 85%

(e) 100%

Answer & Explanation
Ans.8.(a)

Exp. Union Cabinet approved FDI of up to 20% in LIC under automatic route

The Union Cabinet approved Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of up to 20 percent under the ‘automatic route’ in Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India, ahead of the mega initial public offering (IPO) of the LIC of India in mid-March 2022.

It is aimed at attracting long-term foreign investors to the issue. An IPO is the selling of securities (shares of the company) to the public in the primary market (usually to institutional investors and retail investors).

The current FDI policy which permits 74% foreign investment under the automatic route in the insurance sector does not apply for the LIC, as it is established and governed under the LIC Act, 1956, and the law did not have any specific provision for foreign investment in the insurer.

The current FDI policy allows FDI in the insurance sector but as LIC being a statutory corporation, is not covered under either “Insurance Company” or “Intermediaries or Insurance Intermediaries”.

Thus, the cabinet has made an amendment to the FDI Policy in 2021 which is sufficient in facilitating investment in LIC up to 20 percent through automatic route which already permits 20 percent of FDI inflows for public sector banks in government approval route.
