Rakhi Sawant to get her butt and cleavage insured

With many Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities insuring their body parts, Rakhi Sawant has decided to go for some too. Rakhi Sawant is famous for her headline grabbing antics, one liners and her talk show.

Rakhi Sawant mentioned these words in an interview to a reporter. “I want to insure my body parts like all those Hollywood stars. I have been insured for life and against accident, but now I want to safeguard my face, my hair, my cleavage and my butt,”

She however is clueless regarding how she will go about this. She also mentioned that if she cannot find an insurance provider in India, she will have to try foreign Insurers.

The need for getting her body parts insured is basically very simple. Her looks are a major reason for her drawing in her income, according to her. She wants to be tension free after getting everything duly insured.

There are many insurance providers in India including Government Insurance providers who can consider selling such policies. Companies have mentioned plenty of times that they are open to consider such Insurance needs.

Pakistani doctor devises Insurance scheme for urban poor in India

Asher Hasan is a Karachi based doctor who has brought some amazing changes in the lives of the urban poor. In a survey Hasan discovered that low income individuals can never take advantage of Insurance in cities and big towns.

Hasan came up with a novel idea. To get large corporations, educational institutions and NGO’s to buy group Insurance. This way all low level employees, like peons, drivers etc get insured in an economical way.

Hasan talked about his ideas recently in Mumbai. He gave a talk at the Observer Researcher Foundation on Healthcare and Urban Poor.

Through his NGO, Naya Jeevan, Hasan is trying to improve the lives of the urban poor. It has been a decent success in many Pakistani cities with tie-ups with 80 corporations. Asher hopes to start operation in India soon.

With a huge pool of low income clients, costs for Insurance providers are reduced. And Naya Jeevan adds an advantage to the Insurance Policy. When a claim gets rejected, the NGO takes over through their own reserve fund.

Although for those who can take individual insurance, call us up for free at 1800-103-9222 or visit us at and make your  and your families life much easier and financially secure

Insurance companies ignoring customer complaints, to pay penalties

Insurance Regulatory Authority of India (IRDA) has fined New India Assurance (NIA), an amount of Rs. 1 lakh for not replying to a client. IRDA had tried to communicate with NIA which was further ignored for 2 months.

Hemendra Mehta had been living abroad for a few months now. However he had still been paying medical insurance premium amount for the aforementioned months. He filed a query where he had asked the company to refund him the amount. NIA provides extension on the policy in such cases. But in this case no refund would have been made.

Now the problem starts after the grievance was filed. Hemendra received a mail which clearly stated that the refund will be considered. But when the Divisional Manager of the branch realized the folly he just stopped the communication. IRDA after 4 months of no action sent a letter to the head office of NIA. This was further ignored for another 2 months.

NIA finally refunded the amount to the policy holder after a total of 7 months. The Insurance provider made it look like they did a favor to the policy holder and the IRDA. IRDA responded with a Rs. 1 lakh fine.

The Divisional Manager is under investigation now.

Although one must keep in mind that this is just one instance of justice. IRDA is notorious for late replies. You have to wait 6 months to get an appointment with the Insurance Ombudsman in Mumbai. There position for an Ombudsman in Ahmedabad has been empty for the past 9 months.

But this case might be the delicate flame of light at the end of the tunnel. This is an encouraging step taken by the IRDA which will bring some positive changes in the Insurance sector.

To keep yourself and your family financially secure, you should try InsuringIndia or call us on our toll free number 1800-103-9222
