After detecting fraudulent instances on similar lines that had hit Citibank’s wealth management operations in the country, the insurance regulator has filed a police complaint in New Delhi. Issuing alerts to the insurers, Irda has said it has received complaints from various individuals about certain spurious calls about selling insurance products by Irda directly. While Irda has already filed a police complaint at New Delhi and also issued a notice cautioning the public regarding such callers, it is necessary for the insurers, too, to get this matter investigated and initiate necessary action. Irda had already written to some of the insurers whose names these callers are purported to have used.
