It is possible to easily pay the renewal insurance premium 24 hours a day from anywhere. Some life insurers have provided the facility to pay the first premium and the principal and interest of the policy loan through eSewa.

The eSewa has become an effective means of collecting premiums for renewal of life and non-life insurance policy. Moreover, life insurance companies are trying to make full use of digital medium to collect of renewal insurance premiums as they are earning more from renewal premiums than the sale of new insurance policies.
