LIC IPO: Health ministry issues statement on death count report, calls it 'speculative'3 min read . Updated: 19 Feb 2022, 02:03 PM IST
- The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said, ‘While claims settled by LIC relate to Life insurance policies taken by policy holders for deaths due to all causes, but the news reports conclude that this would imply Covid deaths were underreported’
The Central government on Saturday refuted the claims made in a report which stated about Covid-19 deaths and published it related to IPOs proposed to be issued by LIC, where in mentioning the details of policies and claims settled by LIC, a speculative and biased interpretation has been made that the Covid -19 related mortalities could be more than those recorded officially. The Central government clarified that these reports are speculative and baseless.
