ICICI PRU Complaints & Reviews

Jan 21, 2021
Chennai, Tamil Nadu
Irda — pls remove pan no from irda portal

Respected sir,

My name is Gaurav gupta i have joined...

Nagpur, Maharashtra
Icici pru : is it really health savings benefit: (Whole life benefit), no not
At all ….. It is ‘whole life loot’ from the customers and benefit of icici pru
Not of customers, in which icici credit card; bank’s dedicatedly involved.

Public at large, be careful and do not fall prey to icici prudential or icici credit card:

1) on 10th dec. 2014, i sent email to icici pru for discontinuation of policy no. 15065194 and
No reply has been received.

2) inspite of my request, icici pru debited an amount of rs. 15000 / - from my icici credit card and paid the premium due in feb., 2015, which is absurd against my will / without my intimation.

3) i have taken policy in 2011, at that time, icici pru rep convinced me that i get back my money after continuous payment of five year premiums. I paid the premiums same and no single medical claim has been made with icici pru
For reimbursement since then.

4) again 24th april, 2015, when i written for foreclosure / discontinue / surrender the policy, it is intimated that no payment is eligible under this plan, it contradicts the notion of initial stage while selling the policy and in later
Stages. Public is misled and hidden games being played by icici pru and credit card.

6) public at large is be careful, to black list and do not fall prey to icici pru as well as icici credit card.
Tell all my colleagues, friends, relatives, neighburs to dissociate with icici and their products and duping by icici.

    Noida, Uttar Pradesh
    Few days back i went to ICICI pru office (NOIDA sec 18) to surrender this policy. I was told that this policy cannot be surrendered. To my shock, officers just gave one mugged answer that this is a health plan and has no surrender clause. They even tried comparing it with a normal health insurance and stated that like in health insurance the premium paid is not refunded back. I tried explaining them that health saver is not a traditional health policy but a ULHP where portion of my money goes to purchase units. I should be entitled to withdraw that money. My talks fall into deaf ears. Next I talk to the agent who sold me this policy , guess what his answer was - Sir since you didnt asked about surrender clause I didnt told you. His next idea was to increase the health insurance cover to 10L (even better way to loose money fast).

    The policy surrender clause is a 1-liner that appears at Sec 23, somewhere in the middle of the policy document and very very easy to miss.
    Besides the charges on the 20K premium is just too much (more than 5 percent) even without considering the high PAC. In percentage terms your policy never explained the charges that will be deducted. Your agents and your brochure reports just as Rs 60 pm. On annual basis for 20k premium it itself turns out to be 3.5 percent. Here is why this is a case of mis-selling and looting customer's money:
    1. "Cannot surrender" clause was never explained while selling policy. The clause is 1-liner mentioned in secton 23 of the policy document.this should have been at top cover of policy document.
    2. Considering the charges applied on this policy this policy is definitely for small investors like us. Most of the money just goes as charges. Why ICICI did not explained this clearly while selling the policy.
    3. The health insurance is basic plan with high charges.
    My case is being registered under call-id 56868680. I am just raising this complaint on public forum so that other people can be saved from purchasing this crap policy.

    2. Considering the charges applied on this policy this policy is definitely NOT for small investors like us. Most of the money just goes as charges. Why ICICI did not explained this clearly while selling the policy.

    ICICI team, since you are more in hurry to bury the issue and not provide answers to my questions I have escalated the issue to IRDA & Insurance Ombudsman. I am again repeating that you have NOT provided answer to my asked questions:

    1. Why was "no surrender" clause explained to me while selling the policy nor is highlighted in policy highlights.The surrender clause is 1-liner in section 23 of the policy wordings that is very easy to miss in 10-12 page policy document. Since this clause impact the policy holder directly this clause should have been highlighted/mentioned and communicated very clearly as policy highlight.

    2. Why was the policy charges(as described in the complaint above) not explained clearly while selling the policy. Since one of the charges is fixed for small premiums it increases the expense % (for 20000 pa premium it amounts to 3.5% overall charges turns out to be around 7-8% per annum). Why this was not communicated this clearly while selling the policy.

    3. Was customer properly educated about the pros/cons of the policy while selling the policy.

    4. Since neither the policy is performing well in terms of protecting my monry (80000 investment reduced to 55000) neither the policy can be surrendered what alternatives does customer has.

    You can keep replying randomly and keep closing the issue I will keep on trying till someone is serious from your end and understands my concern.

      I visited the Seshadripuram Branch on 29.09.2011 to surrender my Home Assurance Policy, the lady in the counter Ms. Nair gave the application and asked to sumit copy of the ID proof and cancelled chque along with the appn. As I had not carried the same, I checked with her whether I can send the application with all the enclosures through some one which she okayed. This morning 30.09.2011 I sent the payout request along with my person, which she refused to accept and insisted the policy holder to come. Kudos to ICICI ......... I had bad experiences with ICICI Bank and now with insurance............ I have only connection with ICICI with my credit card (stopped using from some time) which now I will surrender and sever with ICICI in toto.

          I am very disappointed, sad and frighten by the way ICICI Prudential’s ethics and procedures at work. I have 1 policy i.e.Policy no. 07184981 with the name of my mother Mrs Munni Devi running with you.
          I have submitted the last year premium Rs. 20000- in the feb 2010. But after checking the receipt for the same I found that it is transferred to any other account not in my account. I contacted to the branch manager regarding this and he assure me to solve this within 1 week but its September, almost 7 months gone and still didn't get any satisfactory answer from them. They always said the same thing that we are working on it and will get back to you soon. I requested you kindly have a look on this issue.

            Pl. refer to my Policy No.13365849, effective 31st Jan.2010, yrly premium Rs.50,000/- (Rs.fifty thousand only). In spite of several reminders to your Hyderabad representatives, Mr.Kishore, Mobile:[protected], Mr.Sudhir, Sr.Manager, Mobile [protected], the policy document hasn't been arranged to be delivered to me as yet. Pl. do something URGENTLY in the matter.
            Aside from this, I wish to inform you that my request for Health Policy hasn't been considered favourably on medical grounds, I'm told. Based on the advice of Mr,Kishote, I paid Rs.100/- accompanied by an application for having a copy of the medical reports, incl. TMT report of Elbit Labs, Hyderabad. After sometime, copies of the reports, EXCEPT TMT report, were sent by your Mumbai Office. Despite several requests to your Hyderabad representatives for sending me the copy of the TMT report, nothing has been done for over three weeks, although Mr.Sudhir keeps promising action in the matter. I need the copy of the TMT report to consult a super specialist for treatment, if necessary. Pl. therefore initiate IMMEDIATE aaction in this regard.
