Bajaj Finserv, one of the largest financial conglomerates in India, has kicked off the second phase of ‘Savdhaan Rahein. Safe Rahein’. a public awareness campaign focusing on Life Insurance Frauds to educate its consumers and public at large on how to stay safe from such frauds. The campaign will run across the company’s social media platforms.
Through this awareness initiative, Bajaj Finserv aims to convey a very important message to consumers opting for Life insurance policies to check policy documents carefully and verify the details from the insurers’ websites only. Sometimes, customers may get lured by low premium offers by fraudsters and may end up with invalid policy documents. This campaign highlights the details that policy holders need to check to verify the policy authenticity; differentiating between a genuine and fake policy and most importantly where the policy holders can report these incidents in the event of fraud.
The campaign has a catchy jingle ‘Na Ji Na Ji’ with an endearing character named ‘Gupta Ji’ who goes around spreading these awareness messages in his own unique style. The campaign highlights various key messages to help consumers stay cautious about sharing their confidential details like Mobile Number, OTP, Address proof, Insurance policy details and that they should never surrender their existing policy in the lure of extra bonus or other higher benefit offers.
Apart from driving awareness among its customers, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance has also shared some safety tips for public/customers to stay protected, such as:
- Never share your KYC documents like PAN card, driving license, passport, etc. to unknown persons. Bajaj Allianz Life never ask the customers to submit your original documents for any of our transactions
