SBI Life Insurance company penalised
CHANDIGARH: Finding the features to be different from what an insurance agent explained, a customer moved the Consumer Forum accusing a bank of 'unfair trade practices'. Accepting the complaint, the Forum has slapped a penalty of Rs 50,000 on SBI Life Insurance, while holding them guilty for 'deficiency in services'. R S Multani, a Sector 8 resident, had purchased the SBI 'Shubh Nivesh Policy' under which the agent assured the complainant of Rs 3.60 lakh with Rs 30,000 as first premium that was payable after five years. But the policy issued had an assured sum of Rs 2.60 lakh with an annual premium of Rs 30,000 payable for 13 years. Multani had then approached the opposite party asking for a refund of the first premium amount or rectification of the policy. SBI in its justification denied that it had cheated the complainant. The Forum directed SBI to refund the first premium amount of Rs 30,000 along with 20,000 as the compensation and litigation costs.
