This clarification has been issued through a press release taking note of some misleading media reports [including social media posts] which said that if there is no valid PUC certificate at the time of accident, claim under a motor insurance policy is not payable. Through the circular issued on August 20, 2020, IRDAI had advised general insurance providers to not renew any motor vehicle’s insurance policy without the owner providing a valid PUC certificate, as per Supreme Court’s Orders.

It was stipulated that vehicle owners who don’t have a valid pollution certificate will not be able to renew the insurance of their vehicles.The Motor Vehicle Department of Kerala Government has, through their official face book account,  issued a clarification in this regard. It said that the social media campaign that insurance cannot be claimed by those who did not hold PUC certificates at relevant time is fake. Click here to Read/Download Press Release  Next Storylast_img
