Online platforms such as Policybazaar, as well as corporate agents, may have to disclose the commissions they receive from insurance companies for selling their policies. 

The move is aimed at pushing transparency and customer protection. It would also put an end to misselling of products that have high commission or rewards.

Web aggregators may have to come up with a specific section for ‘insurance policyholder protection.’

They will have to disclose the commission rates and rewards that they are entitled to receive from insurance companies for selling their products. Reporting of commissions may also be made mandatory for corporate agents
