Hello Bhuvan,

Insurance companies do ask for information regarding existing policies/applications in their application form. This helps them assess how much cover are you eligible for, beyond your existing coverage. This is a crucial information as far as underwriting is concerned.

While I believe insurance companies have access to this information (about existing sum insured) through IRDAI, when they are underwriting applications, it's always a good practice to keep your insurer informed about having such covers. You could simply write an "for your information' email to your insurers official email address (available on their website). Try to get and store any kind of acknowledgement for this communication. Ensure you family is aware of this communication too.
