Yes, you can. In the latest circular, IRDAI directed insurance companies to accept documents in soft copy due to the ongoing pandemic. Insurance companies are also directed to encourage the policyholders to adopt electronic communication for following social distancing norms amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The cyclone Nisarga has caused damages to many properties in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and other neighboring states. This is not only for the benefit of claimants under cyclone Nisarga but has also been extended to the victims of cyclone Amphan.

According to the guidelines, one needs to submit the documents in soft copy while admitting the claim and the guideline does not state whether or not one has to submit physical copies at the time of settlement of the claim. IRDAI has also issued guidelines to settle the claims immediately in order to give relief to the claimants.
