In an attempt to simplify the purchase of the insurance, the Insurance Regulatory authority of India (IRDAI), authorized the Indian Insurance companies to avail the Aadhaar- based authentication services of Unique identification Authority of India(UIDAI) to fulfil the Know Your Customers (KYC) norms.

This E-KYC option has enabled the insurer to replace a certain set of documents like photograph, identity and address proof with Aadhaar. However, the proof of income and medical statement(if required) will still have to scanned and uploaded. This move will help enable the policy purchase and KYC fulfilment process in a distance mode wherein the you can do it from your home with just a click of button.

Considering the present situation, in the Pandemic-driven lockdown, this facility has come in an opportune time to make the onboarding process completely digital and creating a paperless online journey, when it is impossible to meet the customers personally. You can easily buy policies by adopting online facilities and need not to procrastinate buying insurance which is very important in these testing times.
