The shift from rule based to principle-based regulatory framework facilitates ease of doing business and encourages innovation, enabling reduction in the response time for emerging market needs.

Key Highlights of the Master Circular:

For ready reference, retail customers are provided with important and relevant information at one place.

Customer Centric measures:

  • Availability of wider choices of products/add-ons covering his / her assets, risks, properties, liabilities against various perils, exposures and lines of business
  • Possibility of customization of products and flexibility to choose products as per their needs.
  • Introduction of a Customer Information Sheet (CIS) to provide clear and concise policy details including scope of coverage, exclusions, warranties, and claim settlement processes
  • No claim shall be rejected for want of documents. Required documents to be called at the time of underwriting the proposal. The customer may be asked to submit only those documents necessary and related to claim settlement (if cashless is not available)

  • Strict timelines for settlement of Claims including TATs for appointment of surveyors and submission of their reports. It will be the duty of insurer to obtain timely survey reports.
  • No contribution clause to be applied in case of multiple policies.
  • Additional options of “pay as you drive”/ “pay as you go” to be given as first choice to the customer in motor insurance
  • No burden on customer for disposal of salvage. Policyholder to be paid the claim amount. Collection of salvage from the customer is insurer’s
  • Homeowners “fire” policy to have an option to choose add-on covers such as flood, cyclone, earthquake, landslide, rockslide, terrorism or to opt out from comprehensive fire and allied peril policy.

Calibration and governance measures

In an environment which enables innovation, speed of delivery and flexibility of operations, it is imperative that the policyholders’ interest is safeguarded at all times. Broad principles for compliance by the insurers include:

  • Board’s oversight and Governance mechanism to be strengthened for various stages of insurance contract from product development, sales and servicing of the policies.
  • Suitability and affordability of customers to be considered in product development avoiding unnecessary and superfluous coverages
  • Pricing of products to factor risk exposure, experience and expenses such that the premium rates are not excessive or inadequate or unfairly discriminatory.
  • Efforts to be made to incorporate in the product design proper management of underlying risks towards prevention and mitigation in the product design
  • Steps to ensure no unprincipled rate cutting and improper underwriting practices
  • Tech enabled processes providing end-to-end technology solutions to ensure seamless onboarding, policy servicing, renewal, claim settlement, and grievance redressal.
  • To ensure equitable and fair opportunities to the surveyors and loss assessors, work allocation to be done on a random basis in an automated manner without human intervention through a tech based solution to be developed by General Insurance Council in association with IIISLA

Review and reforms to enhance the insurance experience for all stakeholders is a continuous process. A regulatory environment which empowers the policyholders by bringing about transparency and fair treatment; empowers the stakeholders with ease of operations and facilitate quick adaptation to changing market dynamics is a significant step towards achieving a more inclusive, transparent and efficient insurance sector in India.
