I consult SBI insurence agency They saying first I have to introduce 10 members to become a agent. Is it true.?

Hi all,
I am presently working in a Hospital and has good relations with every one i meet. I have some free time and want to convert these relations into useful manner. So I want to become a part time SBI insurance agent. I consult an agency and they are saying that first I have to introduce 10 members (for this they didnt pay any commission), then i have to pass IRDA exam. After that i will get agent licence. I did’nt understand what he is saying is true or lie.
So please tell me the procedure to join directly as SBI Life insurence Corporate adviser / broker.
Thanks
