Car Insurance FAQ's


1. What is the third party risk policy?

As per Section 146 of Motor Vehicles Act 1988, third party risk policy is mandatory because you are financially and legally responsible towards the third party in the case of accidental death, injury or property damage done by your vehicle to the third party. However, this does not cover any damage to your vehicle.

2. What are NCB and its benefits?

No Claim Bonus or NCB is rewarded to the policyholder who didn’t make any claim in the preceding year. This can be a hefty sum if accumulated for a few years.

On your “Own Damage Premium” with NCB your discount can be from 20 to 50 percent.

4. Should small claims be made?

If the claim is less than Rs. 2000/- it makes sense to pay it on your own, as if you do claim it, you will lose your NCB which is more than the amount claimed in this case.

5. How to reduce insurance premium?

The easiest way to do this is by driving responsibly and maintaining a healthy No Claim Record.

Choosing “voluntary excess” is another way to reduce insurance premium. “Voluntary excess” is when you decide to bear a part of the loss from the claim from your pocket.

6. What if endorsement or changes are to be made in the policy?
