Insurance industry in India has witnessed a sea of change since the opening of the sector for private participation. Most of these insurance companies have appointed TPA(Third Party Administrator) and the best thing to happen on the service front is introduction of third party administrators.

While the insurers are benefited by reduction in their administrative costs the insured is benefited by better service.
