hellosir LIC can claim the premiums by deducting the amount from the returns (within the legal frame) which the applicant or nomiee will get it. under the insurance act.

Dear members,please help me and provide me more information regarding LIC claim matter.

Dear Mr. Tripathi,

You legal answers require taking time to read the specific provisions of Contract Act, Insurance Act and the related case laws which you can as well do being a legal professional.

But here are a few tips:

1.LIC is an agent of the employer of the unheard of your client's husband.
2.Unheard of for seven years is a legal fictional death for the purposes of Property and Marriage laws and so, you have to try to extend this to liability of the Insurer.
3.There is a Supreme Court Judgement on Agency discussed above vis a vis non payment of subsequent instalments to LIC. If I remember correctly, it is Delhi Transport Corporation which is one of the parties to the judgement.
4. Upon research in the above direction, after giving notice to LIC, approach a Consumer Forum.

With Best Wishes,

R. BRIZMOHAN SINGH, Advocate, Hyderabad,(AP)

Dear Mr. Tripathi, Now I remember the name of the other party to the Supreme Court Judgement. It is Basanthi Devi.

Thanks. Mr R.Brijmohan for the information.Now i have one more point to clear,from which date he will be presumed dead from the date of lapse of 7 years or from the date of when he was lost.

SANJAY DIXIT (Advocate)     16 March 2008

I think it should be from the date of lapse of seven years from his lost.
