Insurance is a financial tool specially created to reduce the financial impact of unforeseen events and create financial security. The insurance industry in India is a fast-growing segment and is a major contributor to the Indian economy. The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) is an autonomous, statutory body tasked with regulating and promoting the insurance and re-insurance industries in India.
One of the major challenges that the Indian Insurance companies face today is in terms of distribution of its policy kit to the customers. With IRDAI introducing a customer friendly Free-Look period policy, it gives the customer choice to cancel the insurance and take a full refund if the insurance terms are not met, which also includes non-receipt of physical policy kit by the customer within a set period of time. Therefore, it is highly imperative for the insurer to comply with the IRDAI guideline at all times.
