Car Insurance Plans

1. Third Party Car Insurance

According to Indian Motor Tariff, every car owner in the country is mandated to have at least a third-party car insurance policy. This plan provides you coverage for all third party liabilities such as third party bodily injuries, disability, death as well as property damage which may occur due to any unfortunate event involving your car. The third party property damage is limited to Rs. 7.5 lakh under this plan.

2.Standalone Own-Damage Car Insurance

This plan provides coverage only for own-damages incurred by your car in any mishap such as road accident, natural calamity, fire, explosion, theft, riot, etc. To remain compliant with the legal requirements, you must purchase a third party car insurance plan with it. A standalone own-damage car insurance plan gives you the flexibility to choose your own-damage cover and third party cover from different insurance companies.

3. Comprehensive Car Insurance

This is a bundled cover that offers you coverage for both third-party liabilities as well as own damages incurred by your car in an unfortunate event. Among all the three types of car insurance plans, a comprehensive cover offers you the maximum coverage. You can further extend the coverage of this plan by opting for add-ons like zero depreciation cover, engine cover, etc.
