Section 17(5) Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (1) of section 16 and sub-section (1) of section 18, input tax credit shall not be available in respect of the following namely:-


to (g)...

(h) goods lost, stolen, destroyed, written off or disposed of by way of gift or free samples;

so you have to reverse credit availed on such goods.

However claim received from insurance company is actionable claim and actionable claim is neither supply of goods nor supply of service as per Sch III of CGST Act 2017

Intimation should be given to the department and permission to destroy unusable material/goods should be got from the jurisdictional Deputy Commissioner (in-charge GST Division).

GST UPDATE ON REVERSAL OF ITC IN CASE OF GOODS LOST BY FIRE. The bare analysis of above section makes it clear that this section has overriding effect and it states that the ITC shall not be available in respect of goods lost, stolen, destroyed or written off.
