    Myself, Sonia has taken 3 general insurance policies in the name of my Spouse (Mrs. Rinkini Nath), Mother(Mrs. Anjana Nath) and Father (Mr. Biswanath Nath). The policy numbers are listed below,
    I made the payment through my ICICI bank Credit Card as the Sales executive told me that six month emi facilites would be there but i have recieved the satement for this month from ICICI bank which includes the whole amount. That means the amount which i have spent for taking the policy is not splitted into six emi’s. I have discussed with the customer care executive regarding the same today and as per his given instruction i am sending the scanned copy of the credit card statement attached to this mail. The statement has been generated on 28 th of May and the last due date is 15 th of this month. Please look onto this and do the needful as soon as possible and I also register my complaint at but still not get any response. I will expect that the problem will be rectified before 15th of June 2010.
    That was the mail i wrote to TATA AIG team but they have suggested to take fresh policies with paying 1000 INR for each which is absolutely rediculas. dont take any policies from them they are existing to make their customer fool and earn money.
