Banks can now partner multiple insurance companies

In a radical move, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (Irda) proposed to open up a bancassurance distribution channel, where banks would be allowed to tie-up with one set of insurance companies (life, non-life and standalone health insurance company), in one state.
