  1. I am 42 years old, NRI, working in Oman. I have taken an online
    term policy from Max Life insurance last year when I was in India
    on my annual leave.

    As I am pre-diabetic and taking oral medication, I have disclosed
    my health factors sincerely in my proposal form. Even though
    my medical examination results were normal, I have been asked
    to pay an extra premium @ 50% based on my health declaration.

    Now, I came to know that the Max Life Insurance company will
    be merged with HDFC Life within an year and the policy will be
    serviced by HDFC Life thereafter.

    As you are aware, Max Life is having a CSR of 96.2% and the
    claims pending for more than 3 months are only few with them.
    Where as HDFC Life’s CSR is only 95% and they have more
    than 280 claims pending with them for more than 3 months.

    Based on the above facts only, many people decided to choose
    Max Life as their preferred life insurance partner. However, more
    than 75 lakhs policy holders of Max Life are now going to be taken
    over by an insurance company with lower CSR.

    In current market scenario, merger can happen between any
    private insurers in India, in accordance with the acceptance of
    respective Board of Directors. But what will be the consequences
    to be faced by the policy holders in such corporate consolidations.?

    Can I expect to continue with the same kind of quality treatment
    and policy contract after the merger of these companies.? Is there
    any regulation by IRDA to protect the interest of policy holders in
    such mergers.? Being honest in every aspect, can I continue to pay
    the premium and go ahead with my existing insurance contract.?

    Expecting your valuable comments.

    • Babu Rajesh, Thanks for commenting. Well, your concern is defiantly important and i am sure, in the era of competition,both the companies will look after their customer service. We have seen many mergers in financial and insurance sector in past, i.e Kotak mahindra and ING Vyas bank merger. Even after that biggest merger/acquisition, both company’s customer haven’t faced any issue till date. In fact, Kotak has taken care from small things like ING vyas subscriber can login with their old same user id for net banking.

      I am expecting such service from HDFC Life Insurance too. I am too customer of HDFC, using almost all their service. From banking to credit card to loan and insurance. Their service is quite shift and easy.

      And if any problem, i am sure IRDA will closely look after this merger. Thank you!
