Insurers can decline claims and even cancel the policy, in case they find important facts being hidden or misrepresented at the time of buying the policy.

Following are the procedure by which the policyholder may seek resolution

  1. Approach IRDA, an Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority
  2. An Approach to Insurance Ombudsmen under Rule 12 of Redress of Public Grievances 1998
  3. Approach to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), under any specific policy
  4. An Approach to Consumer forum or court of law.

I hope this helps,

Have a nice day!
