However, Reliance General Insurance (RGI) has registered a loss of 342 crore during the period under review "mainly on account of strengthening the third part motor claim reserves".
RGI's gross written premium for the FY12 rose to Rs 1,713 crore from Rs 1,655 crore in the previous fiscal.
Besides, the mutual fund business— Reliance Capital Asset Management (RCAM)— registered a profit before tax of Rs 308 crore for the year ended March 31, 2012, an increase of 5% from the previous fiscal.

During the fourth quarter, Rel Cap posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 329.32 crore, as against net loss of Rs 6.46 crore in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal.
The profit was driven by sale of stake in the life insurance business, profits in mutual funds and life insurance businesses and robust growth in commercial finance operation.
