MUMBAI: The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) has directed insurers to speed up the process of settling claims for flood victims in Jammu and Kashmir.
To assist the victims, they have announced advance payment, minimal documentation, specialized employees to handle claims, and other measures. However, things could be completely different in everyday scenarios. Policyholders must take some actions to ensure a smooth claim settlement procedure, beginning with the purchase of insurance.

Insurance for life
