Motor Insurance

For most of us, our car is dearer than a 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, 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 the motor vehicles Act. It does not cover any damage to your vehicle.
The policy covers the following risks only:

 Package cover – Insures all liabilities, as per the Motor Vehicles Act, as well as damages caused to your vehicle.
The policy covers Own Damage to the Insured vehicle caused by:-

 Addon Covers available:
Zero Depreciation: In a regular claim, an insured bears 30% – 50% of the cost of Fibre Glass, Rubber, Plastic Parts, Tyres and Batteries Cost. However, with additional coverage of the Zero Depreciation Plan – the Insurance company even bears the depreciation cost and no amount is borne by the Insured. However, generally, there is a restriction on the number of claims as 2 to 3 claims in one year

Consumables: In a claim under the normal motor policy, the cost of Consumable Items such as Screws, Fuel Filter, Air Filter, AC Gas, Engine Oil, Brake Oil, Bearings etc has to be borne by the Insured. There are certain Policies that also do cover these Consumable Items by paying higher Insurance Premium or taking Extra Add Cover for Consumables.

Return to Invoice: In a regular policy, in case of theft or total loss claim, the Insured declared value of the car is paid and not the on-road price. By opting for this cover, Insurance Companies pays an amount equivalent to Ex-showroom Cost + Road Tax + Registration Cost of Car.

Garage Cash/Daily Allowance: in the event of a claim the vehicle is in the garage for being repaired and the insured has to bear the conveyance expense till the time it gets repaired. There are insurance companies which even offer daily allowance i.e Fixed amount (around Rs.500 – Rs. 1000) per day to be paid for the purpose of meeting the cost of hired transport in case of Vehicle meets an accident or stolen.

Engine Protect: The engine is like the heart of the car. The Flood Prone Areas or heavy waterlogging can cause car engines to choke. This phenomenon is known as a hydro-static lock. Since the engine is one of the most crucial parts of a car, repairing it is a costly affair. One can take an Additional Engine Cover while buying New Car which also covers the gearbox too

A Maximum capping amount is there which varies across plans from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 50,000

NCB Protect: No claim bonus is a reward for those policyholders who have not registered any claims against their car insurance policy in the past. Over a period of time, this bonus can be accumulated to claim a discount of up to 50%. However, even a single claim on your policy can bring this down to 0%. By buying an add-on cover, can be avoided. Under this add-on, even if you have a claim, subject to a certain sum, NCB earned by you remains protected at the current percentage or at a step-down percentage instead of becoming 0% under a normal policy
