What is life  Insurance and General Insurance  

Life Insurance  

  • It is a contract between an insurance company and a human being where the company promises to pay a sum  of money in case of the death of the human being .
  • Important Life Insurance companies in India are LIC, ICICI Prudential,Max Life Insurance etc.

General Insurance 

  • Unlike  life insurance in General Insurance, Non Human beings' life or objects which are not living are insured .
  • For example crops insurance , cow insurance,buffallo insurance etc  . They are living but they are non-human hence they will come under General Insurance .
  • Some of the examples of non life objects are  houses, cars, jewellery,etc. So if we insure our cars then it will come under General Insurance 

Health Insurance 

  • In health insurance a person(human being ) is insured for hospitalisation where the insurance company will pay for hospital bills if the person falls ill.
  • In India, Health Insurance can be provided by Life Insurance companies, General Insurance companies or specialised Health Insurance companies .
