Top 3 ways you can raise a complaint with the IRDA
It is the duty of an insurance company to assist their policyholders to the maximum extent possible. If a policyholder is not satisfied with the assistance and support their insurance company provides, the policyholder has the ability to approach the insurance regulator and lodge a complaint towards the insurance company.
Let us investigate the top 3 ways a policyholder can lodge a complaint with The IRDA of India.
- IRDA IGMS
- Personally visit the IRDA office
- Call or Email IRDA
The IRDA has put into place an online grievance management system called as The IRDA Integrated Grievance Management System (IGMS). The IGMS system can be accessed through the IRDA website, and can be used to do the following:
- To lodge a complaint against an insurance company
- To keep track of all lodged complaints
- To assign a turn-around time for each complaint
- It sends notifications to insurance companies asking them to tend to the complainant
- Provides resolution to the complainant
Personally visit the IRDA office
If the policyholder so wishes, he or she can even personally visit The nearest IRDA office and lodge a written complaint against the insurer. Once at the office, kindly ask for the complaints department of the IRDA and furnish your complaint letter to the officer. Do remember to take an acknowledgment of the same.
