Many people signed up for the Covid-19 insurance. But, the insurance companies have not paid the insurance claim amount to a majority of policy holders.
The government introduced the Covid-19 insurance scheme soon after the Covid-19 hit the country.
Because of that, general people have started moving the court and other concerned agencies demanding that they be given their insurance amount at the earliest.
“We have filed complaints at the Tulsipur High Court demanding that they be given their insurance claim amount,” Bikas Acharya of Nepalgunj said.
Basundhara Gyawali said that the insurance company had promised her to give the insurance amount within mid-July 2021, but she has not got the money yet.
They had bought the coronavirus insurance plan from Shikhar Insurance, National Insurance Company and Siddhartha Insurance.
The victims have filed complaints against 20 non-life insurance companies.
Finance Minister Janardan Sharma had already said that the insurance companies should pay the insurance amount to the people at any cost.
The insurance companies have stopped taking applications of claimants since mid-July.
As many as 161,549 people had filed applications within that period. It has been learnt that over Rs 4 billion has already been paid.
In a period of one year, non-life insurance companies had sold 1,758,343 Covid-19 policies.
