Insurance begun its business almost a century back. Insurance business gained momentum in East Pakistan during 1947-1971, when 49 insurance companies transacted both life and general insurance schemes. These companies were of various origins British, Australian, Indian, West Pakistani and local. Ten insurance companies had their head offices in East Pakistan, 27 in West Pakistan, and the rest were located outside Bangladesh. These were mostly limited liability companies. Some of these companies were specialized in dealing in a particular class of business, while others were composite companies that dealt in more than one class of business ("Insurance - Banglapedia", 2017).After the liberation the government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh in 1971, nationalized the insurance industry along with the banks in 1972 by Presidential Order No. 95. By virtue of this order, all companies and organization transacting all types of insurance business in Bangladesh came under this nationalization order. This was followed by creation of five insurance companies in the life and non-life sector:-
1. Jatiya Bima Corporation (National Insurance Corporation).
2. Teesta Bima Corporation (Teesta Insurance Corporation).
3. Karnaphuli Bima Corporation (Karnaphuli Insurance Corporation).
4. Rupsa Jiban Bima Corporation (Rupsa Life Insurance Corporation).
5. Surma Jiban Bima Corporation (Surma Life Insurance Corporation).
Further changes were brought on 14th May, 1973. Through the enactment of Insurance Corporation Act VI, 1973 which led to creation of two corporations namely: Sadharan Bima Corporation for general insurance . Jib Bima Corporation for life insurance in Bangladesh.
1. Sadharan Bima Corporation for general insurance .
2. Jiban Bima Corporation for life insurance in Bangladesh.
A country’s economic development is mostly dependent on contribution of various economic sectors like agriculture, industries, power, transport, trade service, finance and banking, etc. Insurance sector has been playing a vital role in the development of the country’s economy.
In fiscal year 2011-12, insurance sector contributed 0.41% of gross domestic product (GDP) of Bangladesh. The figure decreased consecutively after 2011-12 and decreased to 0.34% in fiscal year 2015-16.
