The cabinet Sunday approved an ordinance with scope to form an Insurance Regulatory Authority for a three-year term, a government spokesman said.

The Insurance Regulatory Authority Ordinance 2008 has been approved at a meeting of the cabinet at the Chief Adviser's Office, chaired by interim leader Fakhruddin Ahmed.

Under the new ordinance, the term "general insurance" will be changed to non-life insurance, the CA's press secretary Syed Fahim Munaim told reporters after the meeting.

"The term 'life insurance' remains the same."

The cabinet also approved Insurance Ordinance 2008 and Insurance Corporation's (Amendment) Ordinance 2008.

The Insurance Regulatory Authority will be tasked with supervising the activities of both life and 'non-life' insurers.

The regulator will consist of five members, Munaim said.
