LIC Manager Gheraoed

Mrs. Urvashiben Dave had taken an LIC policy in February 1976 and died in 1979, three years after her delivery. The LIC rejected the claim saying she had not disclosed her pregnancy while taking the policy. The fact was that she was in her early stages of pregnancy, and it was not discovered at the time even by the LIC panel of doctors. Besides, she had not died of maternity causes. The matter was brought out in the newspapers through the “Action Line” of The Indian Express and through `Letters to the Editor’ columns of various newspapers. When no results came out of these, direct action was resorted to. Fifteen women gheraoed the LIC Manager for more than two hours, which again was publicised through `Letters to the Editor’. Finally the LIC paid 75 per cent of the claim amount.
