Once you buy an insurance policy, a contract is signed between the policy buyer and the insurance company to pay a fixed amount of premium and get the insurance cover. Hence, the premium amount is fixed before the policy is taken and the insurance company cannot increase the same later. However, the Finance Ministry levied a service tax on insurance companies in 2002-03 which could have led to increase in premium.
