Hello, Learned Counsel!

My mother’s brother has taken insurance from Sahara India i.e., Saharayn universal multipurpose society project in the year 2010, and the maturity of it, is in the year 2021 and this insurance comprises of life insurance, accidental insurance as well as if no amount is claimed before the maturity date, then the whole amount will be doubled and returned to him. But, in this case, the legal issue is Sahara India is not ready to return the money with the terms and conditions of the insurance and they are saying that, increase your cover time till 2033 in exchange for money. How can he claim his amount of the aforesaid insurance?

If insurance company denies to make payment of maturity amount  then it amounts their unfair trade practice and deficiency in services, insured should file complaint against insurance company in this regard before District Consumer Forum and claim maturity amount with interest and compensation towards mental and physical agony.

Your uncle can approach and submit his grievance to I.R.D.A. This authority is incorporate to protect the interest of policy holders at the time of claims. www.irdai.gov.in if no response or settle the matter then can approach consumer forums.
