LESSONS FROM THIS LETTER:

If you do not understand what you are buying in the banking industry, ULIP is the default option.

Take everything in writing from the RM. This forces that guy to be more careful, and in most banks RMs may not have access to the letterhead of the bank.

All companies are customer centric. I assume you understand what it means. I have no clue.

A fair resolution of any problem is from the company point of view not from the customer point of view. This is fairly obvious, is it not?

The life insurance sector is dominated by bank mis selling and everybody in the business knows about it. I guess they are waiting for the AUM to reach Rs. 15 lakh crores. Once this is done they can argue – so many people would not have been fooled.

The government loves the life insurance industry as it is a very big investor in G secs. This keeps interest rates down.

IRDA is perhaps not as bad as RBI, but it is still very manufacturer friendly and not policy holder friendly AT ALL.

If the policy holder thinks he will get justice from the system, he / she should wake up quickly.

As quickly as you can move away from the ulips and endowment plans – by making it fully paid up or surrendering, you are saving money.
