"While no further charges are pressed for the moment, you are specifically advised to scrupulously adhere to Irda PPI Regulations 2002 in all matters regarding claims servicing," it said in a communication to Tapan Kumar Singhel, CEO, Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company.

The regulator has also directed Bajaj Allianz to put in place a system so that all claim/papers/documents are properly docketed.

Irda guidelines require that general insurance claims should be settled in 30 days of the filing of claims by the insured person.
