The LIC will soon accept claims from the victim customers. The LIC announced through an official statement that the company will ease the procedure for settlements of claims. The relaxation will be offered to the claims on death and disability, document losses and missing people.
Special Nodal Officers have been appointed by the LIC for the region to coordinate and expedite settlement claims, says the release.
The official report of the state government says that 20 people lost their lives but the death casualties are probably more than this.
