Now you can find your life insurance policies in an electronic form as Insurance Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA) is planning to come up with the system, where all life insurance policies can be held in an electronic form or demat form by April 2012, reports Economic Times.

Insurance companies spend crores of rupees in printing and dispatching policies, so the main reason behind coming up with e-insurance concept is to cut these costs and to reduce the hassles for buyers as they need to produce age and address proof every time they buy a policy.

The regulatory is working with depositories to introduce the system by April 2012, IRDA chairman, J Hari Narayan told ET.

IRDA first want to begin with life insurance policies, then will move to general insurance policies and then finally to health insurance.
