  2. Hello, Dear Sir/Madam, I lost my two wheeler,now the insurance co. asking me for 100no. call details so just wanted to ask you how can I get the 100no. call details , I already make FIR & got the untraced report also form the court.
  3. Reported by Priya Nair and Ashley Coutinho in Business-standard.com on May 24, 2015 Fine print in govt-promoted insurance schemes | Business Standard News A few days earlier, three government policies - Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana and the Atal Pension Yojana - were launched with much fanfare. These primarily aim at affordableinsurance to the low-income segment. At first glance, these appear attractive, with the low contributions required and that the premiums for both life and accident insurance policies are likely to remain the same for at least three years. And, these are open to all savings bank account holders, not only Jan Dhan account holders. Yet, for all their benefits, each of these schemes do have their share of flaws, some more glaring than others. "Banks will push the schemes to meet their targets but my advise is to buy only if you are not adequately covered," says Manikaran Singal, a Chandigarh-based financial planner. According to Nilesh Parmar, chief operations officer, Edelweiss Tokio Life Insurance, processing of the claims might become a problem for the companies offering these schemes. "Since there is no requirement for medical tests, those with health problems might opt for these, which can make execution difficult for the insurers," he says. He adds the companies are already seeing a significant number of claims from those registered with the Jan Dhan Yojana and, therefore, eligible for a free term cover of Rs 30,000 and accident cover of Rs 1 lakh. Let's take a closer look at the benefits and flaws in these schemes: The Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana offers a one-year-term life insurance scheme, renewable annually. It is open for all savings bank account holders aged between 18 and 50 years. The sum assured is Rs 2 lakh, to be paid in case of death for any reason. The annual premium payable is Rs 330, to be debited from the bank account if you enrol before May 31. Late enrolment is possible up to August 31, which may be extended for another three months. Those joining subsequently may be able to do so with payment of full annual premium for a prospective cover, with submission of a self-certificate of good health in a prescribed format. Benefits: Apart from the low premium, one big advantage of the life insurance scheme is no requirement of a medical test and almost nil documentation, since these are linked to your bank account. "In most other plans, there is lot of documentation and medical examination. Here, all you require is a self-declaration. So, it is a positive from the customers' point of view," says Parmar of Edelweiss Tokio. The usual restriction of the sum assured not being paid in case of suicide within one year does not apply. Fine print: By the thumb rule of taking a life cover equal to 10 times one's annual salary, a cover of Rs 2 lakh might only be sufficient for someone earning Rs 2,000 a month. "For the ordinary middle class, it might make sense to purchase an online term insurance plan. If employed, they are probably already covered under group term schemes, which charge a lower premium," says Saji George, co-founder, Policylitmus.com. Term life insurance under the Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana is available at Rs 1.445 per Rs 1,000 sum insured. This is almost double the current commercial group policy rates, which vary from Rs 0.75 to Rs 1.25 per Rs 1,000 sum insured. "It appears the ordinary citizen buying life insurance cover under the Yojana is being overcharged," says George. Assuming the same ratio of Rs 330 premium for a sum assured of Rs 2 lakh, the premium for a term plan with sum assured of Rs 1 crore, would work out to Rs 16,500, not very cheap, points out Deepak Yohannan, chief executive officer (CEO), Myinsuranceclub.com. The life cover ends at age 55. This means those wanting to extend their cover might have to buy a new term plan from the market, which can prove very expensive. A term plan for sum assured as low as Rs 2 lakh is not available unless under micro insurance. "You might get a life cover of Rs 2 lakh only through endowment or Ulip (unit-linked insurance) policies, where the premium for a Rs 2 lakh cover will be at least Rs 20,000 per annum," says Singal. Adds Yohannan: "Most deaths happen after 55 years of age. So, if coverage stops at 55, the risky part of the business is removed for the insurance companies. It is almost zero risk for them. The plan might make sense only for those who are 40 years and above." Another disadvantage is that the premiums are subject to change after three years. So, if there are a huge number of adverse claims, the premiums could increase. In a regular term life plan, the premium remains the same through the tenure of the policy. The Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana is a personal accident cover, along with a permanent disability benefit, offered by general insurance companies. It is open to anyone between the age of 18 to 70 years. The premium is Rs 12 per annum. Benefits: Even if an accident does not result in death but causes permanent disability, resulting in irrecoverable loss of use of both eyes or hands or feet, an amount of Rs 2 lakh is paid by the participating insurance company. Says George of Policylitmus: "A premium of Rs 12 per annum for an accident policy that pays Rs 2 lakh and has permanent disability benefits is good value for money. Irrespective of whether one holds any other personal accident policy or not, it makes sense to pay Rs 12 under this scheme." Fine print: The low cover might not attract many from the middle and upper-middle class. Also, the amount of cover is reduced to Rs 1 lakh if the accident causing the permanent disability results in irrecoverable loss of only one eye or one hand or one foot. The Atal Pension Yojana (APY) is a scheme focused on workers in the unorganised sector. The minimum period of contribution by the subscriber would be at least 20 years. Subscribers have the option to make monthly contributions. Those between 18 and 40 years of age are eligible. The scheme offers a guaranteed minimum pension of Rs 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 per month, depending on the contribution. APY will replace Swavalamban Yojana (NPS Lite), which did not find many takers. Those registered with the latter will be automatically migrated to APY, with the choice of quitting it. Benefits:"For any age band, the back-dated returns for this scheme come to about eight per cent, both for the accumulation and distribution phase. This is a fairly good commitment from the government, considering the rates are locked in for 50-60 years," says Manoj Nagpal, CEO, Outlook Asia Capital. Government's co-contribution is available for five years, from 2015-16 to 2019-20, for subscribers who join between June 1 and December 31, 2015. This benefit is available only for those not covered by any statutory social security schemes and are not income tax payers. The government will co-contribute 50 per cent of the total contribution or Rs 1,000 per annum, whichever is lower. Fine print: The amounts collected under APY are managed by pension funds appointed by the sector regulator, in line with the investment pattern specified by the government. Unlike the National Pension System (NPS), the subscriber here has no option to choose either the investment pattern or the pension fund. "The scheme is mostly targeted at the unorganised sector and the government is assuming these investors will not be savvy enough to choose between fund managers," said Sandeep Shrikhande, CEO, Kotak Pension Fund. APY has a more rigid structure than NPS when it comes to making an exit. Exit before 60 years of age is not permitted, except in the case of death of beneficiary or terminal disease. In NPS, investors are allowed to withdraw 20 per cent of the pension wealth in a lumpsum before turning 60, so long as the remaining 80 per cent is used to purchase a life annuity from an insurer. It also allows for partial withdrawal of up to 25 per cent of the contribution after 10 years by the subscriber, for higher education, marriage of children, purchase or construction of residential house/flat and treating specified diseases. If you fail to contribute for six months, your account will be frozen; after 12 months, it will be deactivated, and after 24 months, closed. "There could be a lot of inactive accounts since the scheme is targeted at the mass population. It is not clear what will happen to these accounts and whether the money will be paid back to the person or not," says Nagpal. There's also a penalty of between Rs 1 and Rs 10 per month for delay in contributions.

  4. As a consumer of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or cooking gas, you are protected for accidental death and injury in case the gas cylinder bursts. In their Citizen Charter, both Indian Oil Corp (Indane Gas) and Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd (HP Gas) maintain that "All registered LPG consumers are covered under an insurance policy taken by the public sector undertaking (PSU) oil Companies." There, however, is no mention of any amount either for the coverage or the annual premium. In addition, all LPG distributors also have third party liability insurance to cover losses in the event of an LPG accident, the Citizen Charter says.Read more at; LPG Consumers - Moneylife

  10. The dependants have full rights to receive entitlements occurring due to natural death while an employee dies during office hours. The ESIS has not been treating natural deaths like heart attack to have been caused due to stress and strain of employment and therefore such claims have been rejected. The Bombay high court ruled that natural death too is an employment injury under ESIS and entitled for all claims. This ruling regarding employment injury under ESIS is sure to help many who have been denied the due claims from such natural deaths. In the recent ruling given by Bombay High court having far reaching implications, it has decided that under Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIS) Act, accident that arose in the course of an person's employment, it is to be presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, that the accident has arisen out of that employment and the dependents are entitled to get the benefits. Section 51A of ESIS Act Section 51A which was added by Amendment Act No.44 of 1966 provides thus : "51-A Presumption as to accident arising in course of employment. For the purposes of this Act, an accident arising in the course of an insured person's employment shall be presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, also to have arisen out of that employment." Natural death also an employment injury under ESIS The Bombay High Court has ordered Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIS) to pay within a month the claim amount to a 40-year-old housewife whose husband died of cardiac arrest in a factory. The order was passed by justices K R Sriram and V M Kanade, on September 5, on a petition filed by the widow of Bharguram Mahadik, who worked as a fitter on a meagre salary of Rs 6,000 with Dhanwantari Engineers Pvt Ltd. Bharguram was registered with ESIS scheme. On March 27 last year, he complained of chest pain and his colleagues took him to a resting area within the factory premises and asked him to rest for a while. As his condition worsened, he was rushed to the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation at Vashi. The provisional cause of death in the certificate issued on the same day mentioned that the insured was "brought dead" to the Hospital. The Insured was declared as dead by the Medical Officer of NMMC Hospital and the cause of death was mentioned as "Acute Myocardial Infarction". At the time of death he was about 50 years old. The employer of the insured raised a claim for the dependents under the ESI Act on April 11, 2012 but it was rejected by ESIS on May 14. One of the ground said that the deceased cannot be treated as an employee under the ESIS Act. The ESIS refused to pay the claim, saying that the injury sustained by the employee cannot be treated as an Employment injury under the Act. It further said the insured person had died of natural causes and the death was not related to stress and strain of work. Husband died due to heart attack The entire defence of the respondents is that the petitioner's husband died due to heart attack and it is not an employment injury. The court used the same argument against the ESIS stating that there is no controversy with regard to the death of the petitioner's husband other than the one stated by the petitioner and the medical report relied by both the parties, presumption under Section 51-A of the Act squarely applies to the facts of this case and it has to be held that the death of the petitioner's husband has happened only during the course of the employment and in the factory premises/rest room, by applying Notional Extension Theory. The petitioner is therefore, entitled to get the dependents' benefits. You may be interested in participating on our forum discussions regarding ESIS here.

    Insurance claim

    Is it not unfair that if u pay insurance premium for 10 yrs but fail to pay the last installment the whole policy lapse and u loose all the money u have paid so far WHY.
  12. Dear Members, This is regarding the reimbursement amount given by motor insurance companies. Whenever we claim an amount, these companies say, we'll give 50%, 70%, 80% etc and 100% only in few cases of the claim amount. I am just wondering where are these guidelines available which gives a customer an insight that which part of a motor vehicle deserves how much percentage of claim. There is no such booklet which these companies provide along with the insurance bond/ form, so how to get that information. Thanks, Yogesh

  19. Hi, In September 2008 I took a MetLife ULIP and gave instructions for Electronic Clearance System (ECS). Only for the first month MetLife debited money from my SB account. However, for the October, November, and December they did not deduct the amount. In January 2009 I reminded they for not activating my ECS request and paid the amount that was due for three months. And the MetLife assured that my ECS will be activated without fail. But from the very next month February 2009 they did not activate and get the money from my account. Since then (February 2009) I have been reminding them through my investor about the pending ECS activation. They did not respond. In July 2009, I escalated this issue to the higher-ups of MetLife. Then I got a response from the MetLife executives. Now, they are asking me to pay the due amount since January 2009, otherwise my policy will get lapsed and I will not get the money whatever I had invested. I opted for the ULIP Systematic Investment Policy (SIP) because I couldn't pay the lump sum amount. My question is, when there is a fault with the insurance company, why should I pay the hefty amount as due now? Can I approach any government authority, like IRDA to take action on MetLife on failing activating ECS request? Please advice.

  23. As reported by Vijay Sabharwal of TNN in timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 12 June 2008: Bank insures farmers without their consent-Chandigarh-Cities-The Times of India Bank insures farmers without their consent KURUKSHETRA: A glaring case of misuse of power by the officers of Kurukshetra Central Cooperative Bank has come to light as under an alleged pact with some companies they got as many as 53,352 farmers jointly insured and debited the premium amounts from their accounts without their knowledge. The officers continued to buy and pay for these policies for four years and took out premium amounts worth about Rs 31.19 lakh from the farmers' accounts by recovering the money as loans. In the year 2003, 1,754 farmers of Markanda cooperative society, Shahbad Markanda, and 738 farmers of Kaithal cooperative society were insured and premium amounts worth Rs 1.39 lakh were debited from their accounts. The farmers thought it was some government-sponsored scheme and did not object to it, which provided encouragement to the officers who introduced their self-styled 'welfare' scheme into various other cooperative societies during the next year. These surprising facts came to light recently when a farmer-cum-social worker Gulab Singh sought information regarding this issue under Right to Information Act from Kurukshetra Central Cooperative Bank managing director. According to the reply, officers of cooperative societies got 25,715 members of 24 farmers' cooperatives insured in the year 2004, for which premium amounts worth Rs 15.05 lakh were debited from farmers' accounts by adding those to the loan taken by them. Similarly, in the year 2005, as many as 17,594 farmers, who were members of 16 cooperative societies, were insured by paying premiums worth Rs 10.24 lakh. In 2006, 7,551 members of Ajrawar, Thaski, Miranji, Rohti, Jakhwala, Ismailabad, Amin and Jyotisar cooperative societies were insured and premiums worth Rs 4.50 lakh were debited from their respective accounts.
  24. I am putting up a case,which is yet to reach fruitful conclusions but should have ramifications for all vehicle owners. A scooter was lost on 06 mar 2006,stolen from owner's premises,and it took more than 18 months to get the claim money,that too with repeated direct intervention of the corporate GM.During this intervening period,a number of demands for compliance by the owner were raised ,namely:- =letter to RTO -letter to police for FIR =lrtter to Insurance company with a copy of FIR =letter to national crime records bureau On comletion of above:- =Get a copy of Final Report from police station for His Highness the surveyer,appointed and paid by the insurance company,and any other witnesses,documents he may require,cooperate with him. =hand over orginal insurance polcy,both set of keys,maintenance records,pollution records to the insurance company. =Get Final Report accepted and released by the Chief Judicial Magistrate,for which one has to hire an advocate and run around in civil courts. =Get a notorised Letter of Subrogation on Rs100/-non judicial stamp paper and pay all sundry expenses beside running around in the court. After above,once again:- =letter to NCRB for updated report. =letter to RTO,Police,NCRB(once again)informing settlement of claim(claim is miles away from settlement) =Transfer of Registration(RC)of vehicle to the insurance company.(of corse all expenses to be met by the owner) The owner refused to run around for transfer of RC,instead couriered Motor Vehicle Act transfer forms 29 and 30 and original RC to the company and a letter and another set of forms29 and 30 to RTO. The insurance company refused to pay the legitimate cheque till RC was transferred in the name of company. Having had enough of arrogance and intended delaying tactics of the United Insurance co,an RTI appliction was handed over to the Div Officer (acknowledgement with his signs obtained)RTI was filed on30 Apr2007,asking for"govt regulations/rules/contractual clauses duly agreed upon by me/IRDA approved actions to be taken by the owners of the vehicle in case of a theft" Expectedly no official reply to RTI application,except dated 03may stating it has been sent to CPIO. Like I said,money has been finally extracted from the co under pressure from the highest in the co.The sufferer in this case was an 83 YEARS OLD RETD. LTCOL. I seek your advice friends,paticularly Dr Pathak.In this case,the question is not only money involved but more importantly of ethics. Should the owner put up application to CIC next,or start case afresh from PIO/CPIO,though I can assure you nothing will happen at PIO/CPIO company level because these people have nothing approved with them and have lived with CHALTA HAI attitude to generate chai pani.
