Insurance agents participating in the program questioned why their service facilities were cut. The committee also questioned the strictness of the single insurance fee payment policy.
Responding to their question, the director of the committee, Lala, said, “It has been closed due to many distortions in the policy of single insurance fee.”
We have not stopped the flow of other services even though we have been asked to stop the loan provided to the agents to end the trend of insuring the agents by giving loans of crores of rupees.
The administrative head of the municipality had requested the committee to draft the insurance policy in the local body. Stating that some municipalities do not even have general information about it, he requested to prepare the necessary draft for it.

The people’s representatives have also demanded to formulate policies to attract the insured.
The insurance companies had complained that they had not formed any relationship with the insured after taking out insurance.
After getting life insurance, the companies send regular SMS but when the policy matures, they complain that they are not informed.
Stating that the insurance agent will get 25 percent commission but the insured himself has not paid the commission, they have requested to make arrangements to get commission as per the policy.

Stating that the dividend of the investors of the insurance company will increase every year but that of the insured will not increase for 5-7 years, they have requested the Insurance Committee to work in the interest of the insured.
