As per Provisions of IRDA Guidelines I Approached Insurance Ombudsman on 29/12/2008
for redressal of Grievance but the hearing was conducted with bias back ground. Justice was not
done to me. Award (Xerox Copy Enclosed) was given only for payment of interest for late payment but without mentioning rate of interest and period. I had been informed to approach other forum/court. Respected Sri Amitabh, Insurance ombudsman also not responded so far to my letters dated 04/02/2009 and 09/03/2009 (Xerox Copies enclosed for ref.).
Thanking you in anticipation of your kind co-operation in the matter.
