Corruption in any sector is increasing as individuals look for small benefit. Instead of paying Rs. 250 fine, people like to pay Rs.100 as bribe. Another strong reason is not rising voice against people who do corruption due to fear factor, don't want to get involve in any such issue due to poor law system. more  
GENUINE AND HONEST AGENTS ARE NOT GIVEN THEIR DUES. POLICIES ARE BOOKED WITH SOME OTHER AGENTS NAME. WHAT ABOUT THE POLICIES WHERE THE INSURER DIRECTLY COMES TO THE COMPANY FOR INSURANCE AND NO AGENT IS INVOLVED. more
