IRDA to SBI Life: Refund Rs275 crore to policyholders

Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) has asked SBI Life Insurance Company to refund Rs275.29 crore to policyholders as the amount was collected from them ‘in violation of norms’. The order was issued after an enquiry that revealed SBI Life Insurance was charging the second-year premium along with the first-year premium on its Dhanaraksha Plus Limited Premium Paying Term (LPPT), a group insurance policy. It relates to polices issued during 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11. IRDA’s order said the life insurer has ‘adopted business practices in violation’ of prescribed regulatory norms. “Thus it is concluded that these violations were detrimental to the interests of members of group insurance schemes of the concerned master policyholders,” it added.
