    HI FRIEND!!

    To become an authorized Insurance Agent – Life Insurance or General Insurance- a candidate has to clear the Insurance Regulatory Development Authority’s Agent Examination known simply as the IRDA examination. In this article hence we will cover the relevant details regarding the IRDA Examination of India.About IRDA

Such Agents should be trained on the code of conduct of the insurance sector and the skills to sell the products to the market participants- individuals or institutional investors.


    To train the Agents, it becomes mandatory for the IRDA to conduct periodic examinations before giving new license or renewing an existing license.
