Let`s a drive-in.
It is pertinent to note that this is the exact same method for RPLI online payment also.PLI Indiapost has made it possible.
How to pay PLI Premium Online? (exact Procedure to follow):
The first step is to go for a pli registration off-line. Let’s see how is it done.
Prerequisite Step off-line:
Firstly, you can give directly/ send by post a self-attested xerox copy of the Policy Books, Aadhaar Card, PAN Card to the Head Postmaster, —————HO, PLI-CPC (mention your Head Post office under which you opened/ you are paying premium right now) along with Registration-Request Form on a plain paper (proforma appended at the end of the article) duly noting your (i)Mobile Number,(ii) Email IDs,(iii) Aadhaar number along with your all PLI Policy details (postage is free).
This process of PLI registration is mandatory.
How to update mobile number in pli policy?
As the mobile number is also included in the letter given by you to the CPC or nearest post office, the mobile number gets updated at CPC. So, without this one-time off-line registration procedure, you can`t go ahead with the procedure. After the registration process is completed, you receive the acknowledgment from the PLI-CPC under the heading-Address Change also.
Meanwhile, now you can use the post info app to get this registration of email id and phone number done online at the comfort of your home.
Now you know how to update mobile number in PLI policy?
How to update email ID in PLI?
To update email ID in PLI, you can also go to nearby Sub office or Head post office and get your mobile and email added to your policies by giving a letter with the above details on plain paper.
It will be added and get updated by the next 24 hours. The next day you can go for online premium payment. You can adopt this procedure, if you have just one/two PLI policies or else you are comfortable with multiple customer ID logins multiple times.
The only downside in this second procedure is, if you have multiple PLI policies, you have to pay PLI premium with multiple customer IDs generated ( separate customer ID for each PLI policy).
Solution: But, if registration is done at CPC, they will merge all customer IDs for all RPLI/PLI policies into one customer ID and you can just remember one customer ID for login online.
