NSDL Update News September 2013

It gives us immense pleasure to inform that our subsidiary NSDL Database Management Limited (NDML) has been granted its certificate of registration to act as an Insurance Repository by Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA). With this, individuals can now hold insurance policies in electronic forms, as we currently hold our shares and other securities. We have named this initiative as "National Insurance-policy Repository" (NIR).

A brief about NIR:

  • Facilitates holding of all insurance policies in a single e-Insurance Account (eIA)
  • Does away with the hassles associated with holding the insurance policies in physical form
  • Requires Know Your Customer (KYC) to be done only once i.e. for opening the e Insurance account
  • Acts as a single point of contact for the account holder to update demographic details with insurance companies
  • Facilitates conversion of the existing paper policies into electronic policies at the request of the policy holder
  • We all have experienced the change that dematerialization of securities has brought in the capital market and we are sure that this new initiative will bring in more transparency and efficiency in the insurance industry.

    As this is similar to the depository structure there is a business opportunity for our Depository Participants (DPs). DPs can become an Approved Person to service its clients for opening and servicing of the e Insurance Account (eIA).

    Please visit for further information and e Insurance Account opening process. Feel free to get in touch with us at / 022 49142631.
