Patna: The Patna High Court today issued

capricious acts" of insurance companies in connivance with
banks.

A division bench of Chief Justice Rekha M Doshit and
justice Jyoti Sharan ordered issue of the notice on the PIL
filed by S N Singh, an advocate of the court.

for a loan facility to avail hefty commission on deposit of
first premium and non-collection of second instalment finally
leads to abrupt closure of the insurance scheme," he alleged.
