AEGON and the Ranbaxy Group declared their ambition to enter the insurance industry in India in July 2006. As a result, AEGON Religare Life Insurance Company Limited was established in July 2008 through a partnership between AEGON, Religare, and Bennett, Coleman & Company.
Aegon boosted its investment in the project to 49% in 2015, while Religare Enterprises stated it was leaving the project by transferring its whole 44% ownership of the business to Bennett, Coleman and Firm, the Times Group's parent company. In response, Aegon Religare Life Insurance Company changed its name to Aegon Life Insurance Company.
