Of the 18 million subscribers who had registered  for the offer scheme, pan-India, 7.8 million had already been insured, he added.

“It was a moving experience when I handed over a cheque for Rs. 50,000 to Laxmamma, wife of the late Venkataiah of Meerpet who died recently of kidney failure. And when she said that she now planned to use the money to get her daughter married, I felt the personal connect with subscribers with Telenor Suraksha,” he said, adding that Venkatesh, the legal heir of another customer Balaraju from Nalgonda was given a cheque of Rs. 10,000.

The  best feature of this plan is in the case of the unfortunate event of a customer’s demise, all that the legal beneficiary would have to do is to produce the death certificate  along with proof of identity and the SIM card.
