An insurance company cannot appeal against the verdict given by the insurance ombudsman. The verdict is binding on the insurance company. If the complainant is not satisfied with the award, he can challenge it in court. However, neither side can appeal an ombudsman's final decision to another ombudsman. You also can't go to court to appeal the ombudsman's decision just because you disagree with it

You can write to the Ombudsman to direct the concerned branch manager to comply with its orders immediately and settle the claim.

Well advised by experts, I agree.

Approach Ombudsman to comply his order.
