Approval is received in 3-4 days

Out of all the advance claims approved last year, about 90 lakh claims were auto settled. In the new system, all work is done through computers, due to which there is no need of manpower for any work. This is the reason why the time taken for approval of advance claims has also reduced. Earlier it used to take 10 days. But now this work is done in just 3-4 days.

Facility started from May 6
