Complaint against life policy dismissed by consumer court
The District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, on Thursday, dismissed a complaint filed by one Piar Chand regarding an insurance policy. In the complaint of Piar Chand versus Bharti Axa Life Insurance, the bench comprising Forum president, Lakshman Sharma, and member, Jaswinder Singh Singh, observed that the assertion of the complainant that the policy issued to him was not in consonance with the terms and conditions explained to him and that he thought he was required to pay Rs 60,000 only for the first year, and Rs10,000 thereafter for five years, is contrary to the written proposal made by him for issuance of the policy and the same can't be accepted. The Forum held that it does not find any deficiency in service on the part of the opposite parties and the present complaint deserves dismissal.
