    According to LIC
    Duplicate Policy:
    A duplicate policy confers on its owner the same rights and privileges as the original policy. The following are the requirements for issuing a duplicate policy:

    1. Insertion of an advertisement at the policyholder’s cost in one English daily newspaper having wide circulation in the State where the loss is reported to have occurred. A copy of the Newspaper in which the advertisement appeared should be sent to the servicing office one month after its appearance. If no objection has been lodged with LIC regarding the policy in question, a duplicate policy will be issued after complying further requirements, i.e., Indemnity Bond and payment of charges for preparing duplicate policy and stamp fee.
    2. However, the requirement of advertisement and Indemnity Bond may be dispensed with or modified in certain circumstances as given below :

    loss of policy by theft

    destruction of policy by fire

    loss of policy while in custody of an office of government

    mutilated or damaged policy

    policy in torn and a part of it is missing

    policy partially destroyed by white ants

  2. Dear Vinay, please visit either the original lic office from where the policy was issued or the nearest lic office. Inform about your loss of policy documents. Based upon your info –

    Name, address, D.o. B., policy name, prem. AMOUNT, last prem. date, LIC officials can fetch you, your policy details. Once the policy details are there with you, you may start procedure to obtain a duplicate policy bond from LIC as instructed to you by LIC offficials.
