    Can I become an LIC agent along with Government job?

    I am a Government employee and have a good circle and number of contacts. LIC approached me to be their agent and can earn very good by referring people to them. I am interested for that but donít know that can I do this simultaneously with my job or not?

    Dear Friend,

    Since you are a govt. employee,you can not do other work during your duty hrs.

    Being an LIC agent,it not possible to do both the duty in govt. office as well in LIC office.

    You can do some other work/duty after your duty is over in your Govt. office and you should have proper income tax filing showing the

    income from the concerned job/duty as well as from your salary.

    It must be clear that you have not been away from your govt. job to get the income from other sources.

    With thanks.

    Yes you can do both at a time but you should be able to manage both.You will be having some commission if you join a candidate in your policy.This will be like a side business for you and you can earn a good sum.Only thing is you shoul be able to balance both the jobs and you should go to your friends home and convince them.For that you need stamina and good energy.

    Re: Can I become an LIC agent along with Government job?



    Sorry it is not possible to do both the jobs. In government office you have to work 8 hours compulsory then how can you do the LIC job

    It is not possible to go the LIC office regularly.

    So If you want to do LIC job you have to leave the government jobs.

    Re: Can I become an LIC agent along with Government job?

    Sir/Madam,


    A Government Employee should not undertake any business or profession apart from their government job as per the government rules.

    Becoming Agent of the LIC will be treated as a misconduct on the employee as per the conduct rules.

    There is no ban on the family members of the government servant to involve in any business or to become an LIC agent.

    But that government servant should give clear intimation to the department about the nature of the business undertaken by his/her family member as per the provision of the conduct rules.

    Please verify the "Conflict of Interest" clause in your appointment letter for detailed information.



    Thank You.

    Hi,

    As a government employee you can prefer to work in any private jobs, not LIC. It will need some time to work in LIC office also.

    You have to balance your personal life also.If you interested you can.But not in office hours.After office hours you can do whatever business you want to do.

    There is no rule in government to stop you doing that.

    Regards,
    bsr

    Since you are a government. employee, you can not do other work during their hours of service.

    Being an agent of low intensity, it is not possible to do both the duty of the Government. office and the office of LIC.
    You can do some other work / service after it is his duty again in his government. office and should have the appropriate income tax filing shows that the
    income from work in question / task, as well as wages.
    It should be clear that it was not far from his government. work to obtain income from other sources.
    Yes, you can do both at once, but you should be able to handle both.You will join a committee if a candidate is in his policy.This as a secondary business for you and you can earn a sum.Only good thing is that shoul be able to balance both jobs and should go home and friends who need convincing them.For resistance and good energy.
    A government employee should not make any business or profession, part of his work in government and government regulations.

    Become LIC agent is treated as a misconduct of the employee in accordance with the rules of conduct.

    No ban on family members of the government official to engage in any business or become an LIC agent.
    But that servant, the government should give clear indication to the department about the nature of the activity carried out by his brother / family member for the provision of the rules of conduct.
    Please check the "conflict of interest" clause in his letter of appointment for details.
    Can not perform any other source of income is a government employee. This must have been specifically mentioned in the policies of your company. kindly go through the details. Also, if they are offering. you can make something of their family member, agent of LIC and then can search your contacts for the public policy of the person's family.

    HI,

    Being a govt. servent , its always wrong working somewhere else.
    Policy of govt. does not allow all these.
    But if you want to do,you can but not in your hours.
    Fix a time,work in that particular time only.
    Think about it and then decide.

    HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL!!!!!
    GOOD LUCK!!

    Re: Can I become an LIC agent along with Government job?

    Hi,


    LIC agent is an good choice of work

    Ensure it doesn't affect your normal official work

    You can explain about the insurance poilicies and returns outside your work area or in home

    You can take insurance dor yourself and family

    Can get clear knowledge on this and better idea to plan your future

    Don't publicize yourself as LIC agent in office that will lead to criticism and work pressure from higher officials

    You can get more income through this job

    ###Thanks

    Re: Can I become an LIC agent along with Government job?

    Hi guest, As a part time job, working as a agent of Life insurance company is a better option. You can go for both the jobs but your first priority is government job not the insurance agent job. You have work as an insurance agent only after end of timings of your government job. You have to manage your time, work as per schedule and also complete the target given by the insurance company. Since you have very much contacts, you need not to worry and work hard, you will easily acheive the target premium. Thanx

    Re: Can I become an LIC agent along with Government job?

    Hi..I dont think you can take up any job being a govt employee.. Govt employees can only have one office of profit and they cant take up any other earning job till they resign from the previous one..

    So i dont think its legally possible..Even if its possible then also i dont think you will be able to manage both simultaneously as both take a lot of time and hard work..

    Also it will hamper your work performance in the current job..

    So dont do this..Think wisely..Best of luck..Thanks

    Dear Guest,

    * As per service laws , you can't engage in other works other than those responded to you if you are a government employee. So you can't engage in LIC job as you are already engage in this work.

    * Secondly you will be suspended if found engage in other work , or other work at the office time .
