Not granted – in her application of 18.06.2001to the LIC, the complainant had categorically stated that her husband had committed suicide by drowning on 04.05.2001. In the inquest memorandum drawn up by the Police on the same day after recovery of the dead body, it was also stated that it appeared to be a case of suicide. In the form of requisition for autopsy of the body of the deceased, a similar remark was made.

During the course of investigation, OPs obtained the Medical Record, own Identity Book of the life assured from his employer and from these documents, they came to know that the life assured was an old patient of pulmonary T.B., but he had suppressed this material fact/information in the proposal forms of all four policies and answered the questions in paragraphs11(a) to (h) of the proposal forms in negative and in para 11(i) stated ‘Good’ about his usual state of health

NATIONAL CONSUMER DISPUTES REDRESSAL COMMISSION=there is adequate credible evidence on record that the Respondent’s husband was suffering from tuberculosis and that he had suppressed this material fact. This has been established by the medical certificate of the District Tuberculosis Officer which we note, was supplied by the Respondent herself to the Petitioner/Insurance Company. Further, it is also on record and not disputed that the insuree had taken medical leave for long periods for his treatment of tuberculosis. Since, an insurance is a contract entered between the parties in “utmost good faith”, suppression of any material facts by the insuree(as was done in this case), entitled the Petitioner/Insurance Company to repudiate the claim as per the terms and conditions of the policy.
