Free Look Period

Under Kotak Group Secure Shield – Micro Insurance Plan, there is a free look period of 15 days that starts from the date of receipt of the policy, to review the terms and conditions. If the insured disagrees with any of the terms and conditions of this policy, he/she can return the same stating the reason for it. On such cancellation, the policyholder is entitled to a refund of the paid premium after the deduction of medical examination and stamp duty charges, provided the insured hasn’t filed a claim during the free look period. If the risk has already commenced and the option of return of the policy is exercised by the policyholder, a deduction towards the proportionate risk premium for the period on the cover will be made. Where only a part of the risk has commenced, such proportionate risk premium commensurates with the risk covered during the free look period.
