Types of Car Insurance
Compulsory Car Insurance
Under a Comprehensive Car Insurance policy, the insurer is obligated to pay for both the insured’s own damages and those of the insured’s vehicle in the event of an accident. Additional coverage includes natural calamities, man-made calamities, self-ignition, or lightning, explosion, fire, theft, etc. in addition to road accidents
Third-Party Car Insurance
In order to drive a car in India, you must have third-party insurance. Because of its simplicity, it’s sometimes referred to as a “Liability Only” policy. In the event of an accident involving the insured’s vehicle, the insurance company is responsible for paying for any bodily injury, permanent disability, temporary disability, or death of a third party. Third-party property damage is covered up to a maximum of Rs. 7.5 lakh under this policy.
Own Damage Car Insurance
Own-Damage car insurance was introduced by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) in September 2019. Only damage to the insured’s four-wheeler as a result of a road accident, natural or man-made disaster, fire, explosion, theft, or any other calamity is covered under this policy type. Own-damage auto insurance that stands on its own is designed to give the insured the freedom to pick and choose their own insurance company.
