Motor Insurance

For most of us, our car is dearer than wife. It should be handled carefully!!

Accidents are unfortunately very frequent in our country. With hardly anyone following traffic rules, damages are very common resulting in both - a financial loss and loss of mobility. Although the Indian law makes it compulsory to insure your vehicle against third party liability, but prudence also suggests a comprehensive cover for your vehicles

What is motor insurance?

Motor insurance is a contract between a vehicle owner and the insurance company where the insurance company compensates for the loss arising from accidents, burglary, or third party injuries/death. It can also cover any personal injury, to you or to your passengers due to a mishap.

There are 2 types of covers available:

Liability Only cover - insures you against any legal liability following an accident involving your vehicle which is mandatory as per motor vehicles Act. It does not cover any damage to your vehicle.

The policy covers the following risks only:

  • Injury or Death of Third Party
  • Property Damage (TPPD upto Rs. 7.5 Lacs)

Package cover - Insures all liabilities, as per the Motor Vehicles Act, as well as damages caused to your vehicle.
