"The commission-free structure will kill the insurance industry"

- J. Hari Narayan, Chairman, Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority , in 2009.

"Across the world, while such a structure has been under discussion as an ideal customer-benefit situation, even developed economies have not been able to achieve it so far. Hence, for a still-developing market like India, this may be a premature move."

- V. Srinivasan, CFO, Bharti AXA Life Insurance , in 2009.

"We are not saying agents should not be paid at all or that their revenue stream should be totally cut off. We are only changing the revenue model of the agents. Currently, most individuals are not aware of how much of what they have paid to an agent while buying a policy is going into their account. A fee-based model will bring transparency regarding this."

- A Member of the D Swarup Committee, in 2009.
