In such a competitive milieu, survival and success of Indian life insurers depends on the quality of services rendered by distribution channels. So, the present study examined satisfaction of customers towards distribution channels of insurance industry in India. For the purpose of analysis, customers’ satisfaction has been regressed with various benefits received as well as problems faced by them respectively, while dealing with intermediaries, along with demographic variables. For this, sample of 617 policyholders has been taken from three cities of Punjab (India) and data have been analysed using Ordered Probit Regression.
