Aadhaar linking compulsory for life, non-life insurance policies: IRDAI

IANS  |  Chennai 

India's regulator IRDAI has mandated all insurers - life and non-life - to link the number of the policy holders to their policies

The Regulatory and Development Authority of (IRDAI), in a circular on Wednesday, told life, non-life and stand-alone health insurers that linking of number to policies is mandatory under the Prevention of Money-laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules 2017.

It said the amended rules makes it mandatory to link number, PAN/Form 60 for availing financial services including insurance and also linking existing insurance policies.

However the IRDAI has not specified any deadline for linking of Aadhaar number with the existing policies.

It will be a major task for the non-life insurers to link Aadhaar with motor insurance policies given huge number of vehicles that get insured with the insurers.
