Your attention is drawn to Section 41 of the Insurance Act, 1938, which is in the following terms: “(1) No person shall allow or offer to allow, either directly or indirectly, as an inducement to any person to take out or renew or continue an insurance in respect of any kind of risk relating to lives or property in India, any rebate of the whole or part of the commission payable or any rebate of the premium shown on the policy, nor shall any person taking out or renewing or continuing a policy accept any rebate, except such rebate as may be allowed in accordance with the published prospectuses or tables of the insurer: Provided that acceptance by an insurance agent of commission in connection with a policy of life insurance taken out by himself on his own life shall not be deemed to be acceptance of a rebate of premium within the meaning of this sub-section if at the time of such acceptance the insurance agent satisfies the prescribed conditions establishing that he is a bona fide insurance agent employed by the insurer. (2) Any person making default in complying with the provisions of this section shall be liable for a penalty which may extend to ten lakh rupees.”
Before you enter into a contract of general insurance, you have a duty under the law to disclose every matter that you know or could reasonably be expected to know, that is relevant to the insurer’s decision whether to accept the risk of insurance and if so, on what terms. You have the same duty to disclose those matters before you renew, extend, vary or reinstate a contract of insurance.
If you fail to comply with your duty of disclosure, the insurer may be entitled to repudiate or reduce its liability under the contract in respect of a claim or may cancel the contract. If your non-disclosure was fraudulent, the insurer may also have the option of voiding the contract from the beginning (i.e. treating it as if it never existed).
Information regarding the full extent of your duty of disclosure is contained in your policy wording and should be read carefully at any point in your insurance transaction including when your policy is renewed, extended, varied or reinstated.
Every contract of insurance is subject to the doctrine of utmost good faith, which requires that the parties to the contract should act toward each other with the utmost good faith. Failure to do so on your part may prejudice any claim or the continuation of cover provided by Insurers.
