Niva Bupa will bring business opportunities for people in the city by providing adequate training programs and encouraging housewives and senior citizens living in the city to become insurance agents, thereby helping them to become financially independent.
Speaking on the development, Ankur Kharbanda, Director & Chief Distribution Officer, Niva Bupa Health Insurance said, “We are excited to mark our entry inBaleswar. This expansion is part of our strategy to increase our footprints across India and make health insurance available across the country. The populous state of Odissa holds strategic importance for Niva Bupa as it contributes around 1.6 % of our total business across all states.
Only about 1.5% of the state’s population is currently covered under retail health insurance and hence there is immense potential to penetrate this market from a health insurance standpoint. With expansion into newer cities like Baleswar, we will provide health insurance coverage to more people in this state and thereby increase the contribution of Orissa in our overall GWP.”

In line with this growth rate, the company expects to grow at a CAGR of 54% in the city of Baleswarin the next five years to achieve a gross written premium of over INR 3.1 lakhs by FY 27-28.
