Though, entry of information in various search and entry forms in the website would help in detecting any obvious errors made by the customer, the entry of data by the customer and subsequent preparation of policies on the basis of this information is the complete responsibility of the customer.

Claims Assistance
The website shall have information about the Claims Assistance service to be provided by ICM.

It does not in any manner whatsoever assure the approval and payment of the claim by the Insurance Company.

  1. If, for some reason, the customer decides not to purchase insurance from us after making the payment, he can request for a refund.  If we have not remitted the payment to the insurance company by then, we will refund the amount after deducting Rs.150/- of service charge.
  2. If we had already handed over the money to the insurance company for issue of policy by the time the customer requests for refund, we will not be responsible for any refund. We will only give the contact information of the insurance company to the customer and the customer will have to approach the insurance company for refund.
  3. If, for some reason, the insurance company rejects issue of policy to a customer, then the insurance company would be responsible for refunding the money in full without deducting any service charge.  If payment was made by way of cheque to the insurance company, the cheque would be returned back to the customer.  
  4. If, after reviewing the proposal, the insurance company demands additional premium to cover the risk, we would intimate the same to the customer.  If the customer does not want to make additional payment, then we will refund the money in full without deducting any service charge, if we have not by then remitted the payment to the insurance company, provided the information provided by the customer in the proposal was true and complete.  If however we have by then remitted the payment to the insurance company, we will advise the Insurance company to refund the amount and thereafter it is for the Insurance Company to refund the amount and for the customer to follow up the refund.
  5. In cases when a customer provides false information (for example, he says that he is eligible for 40% discount whereas we find later that he is eligible only for 30%) during payment and consequently additional payment of premium is required, if the customer is not willing to make the additional payment, then we would refund the money after deducting Rs.150/- for service charge.
  6. If the policy is already issued and the customer wants to cancel the policy and wants a refund, he has to directly get in touch with the insurance company.  We will have no responsibility for the cancellation or refund and will only assist the customer to contact the insurance company.
  7. If, for any other reason, we (not the insurance company) are unable to process your policy within 30 calendar days from the date on which the purchase was made, we shall cancel the order and the customer shall be refunded after deducting applicable service charge, if any.
