More than 11,000 claims worth an estimated Rs 1,200 crore have been filed by flood-affected people with the four public sector insurance companies in Kerala. United India Insurance Company Director and General Manager K B Vijay Srinivas said the public sector insurance companies had decided to simplify the process and dilute norms for speedy disbursement of claims to the flood-affected people.

As a pro-active step to process the claims relating to floods, the companies have started collecting preliminary information on the loss to policy holders through phone calls, e-mails and direct communication, the official said. The rains and floods in Kerala, the deadliest in the last century, have claimed the lives of 474 people since May 29 when the south west monsoon set in over the state.
