    My home loan has been sanctioned with SBI. Bank is asking for house insurance for natural calamities. They are saying that it is mandatory to get a loan and the same finds a place in RBI circular. Further, as per IRDA, I will have to bear the cost of insurance. My point is when I don’t find a need for this insurance, why should I opt for it. Who is wrong ? I or SBI?


    I am sorry to say that you are wrong. Being an owner of this house, it is your responsibility to cover bank’s risk against natural calamities.
