Insurance agents and brokers will now to have ask their clients to furnish pollution under control (PUC) certificate of the vehicle at the time of renewal of motor insurance.
Following the Supreme Court order, IRDAI has asked insurance companies not to renew motor insurance policies without PUC certificate.
Currently, policyholders are not required to furnish any additional documents at the time of renewal of the third-party motor insurance policies.
Third party motor insurance is mandatory in India. However, General Insurance Council data shows that only 40% of vehicles plying in Indian roads have motor insurance.
