Insurance- Spurious calls identifying themselves as IRDA Employees in a bid to sell Insurance policies
Circular No. CAD/1/10-11, dated 21-1- 2011
The Authority has received complaints from various Individuals about certain spurious calls as mentioned above. While IRDA has already filed a police complaint at New Delhi and also issued a notice cautioning the public regarding such callers, it is necessary for the Insurers too to get this matter investigated and initiate necessary action. In fact, we had already written to some of the Insurers whose names these callers are purported to have used.
You are advised to initiate necessary steps to help eliminate this menace wherever such calls are received from members of the public trying to verify the authenticity of such calls.
