The report is for the overall judgment of the business condition of the mentioned company, about their current condition of asset, liability and profit. The data were collected from the annual reports of the company. Some of the information’s were collected from the executives and by searching the website of the Company. According to the executives, to be a successful insurer service and proper maintenance Govt. regulation is more important than public awareness. On answer of our question they said us that, Fire & Marine Cargo insurance is common case because of increase in export-import business and implementation of certain Govt. egulations. On answer of our another question they said that without the permission of Shadaron Bima Corporation any insurance company cannot introduce new policy and they are not interested to introduce Crop & cattle insurance because of high risks. The executives also said that they have another policy named ‘Oversea Medi-claim’ policy but it is only for Govt. VIPs and some of their clients. In general the policy is not introduced because of bad practices by clients, for example, presenting a wrong medical certificate.
From the discussion we found that they have very much confidence on their surveyor and still now they do not found any material hazard by any client. From the speech of Mr. Mizanur Rahman, the General Manager of the Finance & Accounts division, we known that in case of Marine Insurance the Marine Cargo is available in their policy, they have very little of Marine Hull and he suggest us to consider marine cargo insurance as the overall marine insurance. From these reports it is clear that their current business trend is upward.
By this analysis we try to determine the present condition of the insurance business in our country. 1.

But according to the management of Rupali Insurance Company Limited marine insurance has a greater contribution on the total premium income because marine insurance is mandatory for export-import business. According to the management of Rupali Insurance Company Limited they have equal priority for policies but the insurance business is fully depend on the Govt. ules and regulation and the socio-economic situation as well as the political situation of our country. 6.
