(iv) Explain any three Principles of Insurance.

Answer : 

(i) Application blank is the commonest device for getting information from a prospective candidate. Almost all organisations require job seekers to fill up an application. This serves as a personal record of the candidate bearing personal history profile, detailed personal activities, skills and accomplishments.

(ii) The production budget calculates the number of units of products that must be manufactured, and is derived from a combination of the sales forecast and the planned amount of finished goods inventory to have on hand (usually as safety stock to cover for unexpected increases in demand). The production budget is typically prepared for a “push” manufacturing system, as is used in a material requirements planning environment.


  • Warehousing allows for timely delivery and optimized distribution, leading to increased labor productivity and greater customer satisfaction.
  • It also helps reduce errors and damage in the order fulfillment process. Plus, it prevents your goods from getting lost or stolen during handling.
  • A warehouse gives you better control over your inventory and ensures that customers will receive their products on time, which ultimately leads to higher profits.


  • Utmost good faith: An insurance contract is one in which the insurer and insured should display good faith towards each other with regard to the contract. Insured duty is to make full and accurate disclosure of all the facts and the insurer have to satisfy terms and conditions of the contract. Hence, the proposer has to disclose all the material facts about the subject matter of the proposed insurance. Any fact which is likely to affect the mind of the insurer in deciding to accept the proposal of insurance is material. If the insured fails to disclose material facts, it makes the contract of insurance voidable at the discretion of the insurer.
  • Indemnity: The fire and marine insurances are the contracts of indemnity. Insurer undertakes to put the insured in the event of loss in the same position which she or he possessed instantly before the occurring of the event insured against. The loss of event and the compensation payable are measured in terms of money.
  • Mitigation: The insured has to take steps to minimise the loss or damage to the insured property. If any fire accident occurs in a warehouse, immediately the insurer should try to recover the goods and save them from any further damage. The insurer must behave prudently as there is an insurance cover.
