Sahara India Life Insurance Co. Ltd (SILIC) was granted a Certificate of Registration in 2004 to transact the business of life insurance. However, due to issues on the financial propriety and governance aspects of the insurer, IRDAI had appointed an administrator to manage the business of the insurer in 2017.
