Linking Of Aadhaar With Insurance Policy Is Mandatory, Says IRDA
November 13, 2017
On Wednesday, 8th Nov 2017, the Insurance Regulatory And Development Authority Of India (IRDA) said that the linking of Aadhar number with insurance plans is compulsory and asked insurance companies to implement the statutory norms.
“The Authority clarifies that, linkage of Aadhaar number to insurance policies is mandatory under the Prevention of Money Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017,” the IRDA said.
In the last June, the government of India had informed about the Prevention of Money Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017, making Aaadhar and PAN/Form 60 compulsory for getting financial services that include insurance also and asked policyholders and companies for linking the existing policies with the same.
In a discussion with all life and general insurance companies, IRDA said the rules have “statutory force” and they have to implement the rule without waiting for the further instructions.
Right now, there are 24 life insurers and 33 general insurance companies operating in the country.
Although, there are no deadlines that have been given by IRDA for the completion of the process, as per the circular, it has to be done as soon as possible. Some insurance companies also said that this can also result in the delay of payout in a few cases. Aadhaar is now also compulsory for financial transactions of Rs 50,000 and above. Likewise, one has to link one’s Aadhaar number with the mobile number latest by February 6, 2018.
