LIC, banks asked to provide claim forms online

The finance ministry Monday asked banks and the state-run Life Insurance Corp (LIC) to make available claim forms on their websites for the Rs.30,000 life cover available under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY).

The LIC has also been asked to settle claims within 15 days of the receipt of the claim form.
"Banks and LIC were asked to make claim forms readily available in their website. LIC was asked  to settle the claim within 15 days from the date of receipt of claim, if otherwise in order.

"The settlement process should not exceed 30 days in any  case," the finance ministry said in a statement here following a video conference between joint secretary Anurag Jain and executive directors of public and private sector banks to review the progress of the Jan Dhan Yojana.

Till Dec 22, banks have opened 9.83 crore bank accounts under the prime minister's financial inclusion scheme and issued 7.28 crore RuPay cards.

Banks were also asked to issue passbooks to all account holders and activate RuPay cards.
The banks have agreed to complete this task by Jan 15, 2015.
