In a follow-up to its earlier resolution, the central committee of the state's most influential organisation, convened a joint meeting of all transport organisations in the state in its office today.
Expressing solid support to the central YMA's resolution, Zoram Drivers' Union, Mizoram Road Transport Union, Zoram Taxi Drivers' Association, Zoram Taxi Owners' Association, Mizoram Maxi Cab Owners' Association and Mizoram Truck Owners' Association entrusted the central YMA to deal with the insurance companies.
A source from the central YMA accused some nationalized insurance companies, such as New India Assurance Company Limited, Oriental Insurance Company Ltd, United India Insurance Company Ltd and National Insurance Company Ltd, operating in Mizoram of causing a big problem to their local clients by not having regional offices in Aizawl.
"Accident insurance claimants had to call in surveyors from Silchar, causing a lot of time and money.
The central YMA had made repeatedly requested the companies to open regional offices in Aizawl, but the requests fell on deaf ears," it said.
