Community Engagements

Introduction

DHFL Pramerica Life Insurance Company Ltd (DPLI) is the fastest growing Insurance Company in India. Prahri is an initiative of DPLI that was launched in 2009 to provide Life Insurance cover for all types of risks attributable to military service, including war & war like scenarios under all circumstances. PRAHRI was launched with the sole aim of providing end to end financial solutions to Defence Services personnel of our country. This was done considering that we have one of the largest armies in the world and though they are fairly covered for risks attributable to military duties through in house contributory Programme managed by AGIF, we identified certain complementing insurance plans, through our PRAHRI initiative to augment the protection and savings cover for our soldiers. This assumed further significance considering that we are the only Company amongst 23 lnsurance Companies licensed by IRDA that covers all military risks without any exceptions through a dedicated service channel.

 

Engagement Canvas

While during the initial few years, since our launch in 2009, we associated ourselves locally across formations, units and military establishments in the form of support to ASHA schools, job opportunities for veterans and families of serving and retiring personnel and women emancipation through FWC to name a few. However during the recent years as we grew in size and established our footprints pan India, the local level engagement continues but the focus of such activities has shifted from local level to a more organized and meaningful support which is coordinated and monitored centrally along with Army institutions.

 

We have in the recent past partnered with AGs Branch and Central AWWA through formal memorandums and supported few of the following initiatives for the welfare of troops and their families:-
