The Finance Minister appreciated the recent efforts by insurance companies and banks for speedy settlement of claims. He said that during the Corona epidemic, the officers of insurance companies should show sympathy to the nominee of the deceased insured.

The Finance Minister said that under PMJJBY, 4.65 lakh claims worth Rs 9,307 crore have been settled. The Finance Minister also reviewed the Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBI). A total of 82,660 claims worth Rs 1,629 crore have been settled till May 31, 2021.

Insurance company appreciation

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman appreciated the efforts of New India Assurance Company (NIAC). The responsibility of managing the PMGKP scheme rests with this company. He cited the example of Ladakh where the claim has been settled within four hours of getting the District Magistrate’s certificate. The Finance Minister directed the states to settle the COVID-19 claims of health workers on priority basis.

209 crores deposited in the account

Nirmala Sitharaman said that under the PMGKP scheme, 419 claims have been settled so far and Rs 209.5 crore has been deposited in the accounts of the nominees. The Finance Minister said that a new system has been decided to solve the issue of delay in sending documents by the states. Under this, a simple certificate by the District Magistrate and its confirmation by the Nodal State Health Authority will be sufficient for settlement of claims.

Review of these plans

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday reviewed the progress of the Prime Minister’s Garib Kalyan Package for health workers playing an important role in the fight against COVID-19. He asked the insurance companies to settle the claims under the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana expeditiously. An official statement said that in the virtual meeting with the heads of insurance companies, the Finance Minister stressed on rationalizing the process of documentation required under these schemes so that claims can be settled faster.
