Interest to join as AAO in the insurance companies is increasing due to increased awareness among candidates about the pay package, allowances and job profile of AAOs.

Solving old question papers of other examinations may sometime prove very useful in language and reasoning sections.

Hi Suraj, as the name suggests LIC means Life Insurance Corporation of India, its a corporation means semi-government type. Rules for government are applicable just like in government undertakings. AAO post is similar to those posted in government departments. Pay and perks are different for corporations and government employees. However, AAOs in Banks and Insurance Co. are not on contractual basis so need not worry for retrenchment. Even then read the notifications and details before joining any department.
