Speaking on the launch, Sameer Nigam, Founder & CEO, PhonePe said, “Unfortunately, despite global efforts to contain the pandemic, COVID-19 is still spreading fast and furiously across the world. The Indian government has taken very bold steps towards containing the outbreak in India. However, many Indians don’t have health insurance covers, so they will be faced with an added financial burden in case someone in their family needs to get hospitalization treatment for COVID-19. Keeping the societal well-being in mind in these tough times, PhonePe has decided to forego its commission thus enabling an affordable product with Bajaj Allianz General Insurance.”
