About Motor Insurance

About Motor Insurance

Motor insurance is a vehicle insurance policy that is mandatory for vehicles like trucks, cars, jeeps, bikes, scooters, etc. This policy offers coverage to the vehicle owner/driver against financial losses that may occur due to accidents or other kinds of damages.

Having valid motor insurance is compulsory in India to protect vehicle owners from potential financial risks. It is the best form of security that you can acquire to prevent significant expenses that result after an accident. The Government poses the compulsion for the safety of the individuals who travel via motor vehicles daily.

No one can deny that buying a vehicle is the second most expensive investment in a person’s life after home. Thus, protecting the investment against unforeseen events is crucial. Considering the hike in the vehicle repair charges and the risks involved in driving, an unfortunate accident can put a big hole in your pocket.

The yearly premiums that you pay for the motor insurance policy are meagre as compared to the advantages and protection the coverage will offer you in case of mishaps. Though there are many misconceptions regarding the policy, it will most certainly compensate you against the physical damage that arises under different circumstances.

 

Why Should You Buy a Vehicle Insurance Policy?

Believe it or not, driving in India has many associated risks. Millions of people own a driving license, and there is at least one vehicle in the household. Vehicles have become a crucial means of transportation, eliminating people’s need to travel via public transport. At the same time, we also know that an increased number of private vehicles also increases the risk of road accidents and rule-breaking. Accounting for such factors, it becomes critical to own a vehicle insurance policy. Besides that, let’s review the primary reasons to buy a comprehensive motor insurance policy.

  • Legal Requirement

    The first reason is, of course, to follow the laws and regulations of the Government. A person should oblige to buy a motor insurance policy with minimum coverage before taking the vehicle out on the road.

  • Third-party Damage Coverage

    With sufficient coverage, you can pay for the damages that occurred after a collision with a third-party. Without motor insurance, you’ll have to pay from your pocket, and an appropriate amount of coverage can take care of such expenses.

  • Security Against Theft

    Theft is one of the most significant threats on a vehicle. But with a vehicle insurance policy, you are protected against theft, vandalism, and all man-made harmful activities.

  • Damage Expense Coverage

    Paying outright for vehicle damage repairs will affect your financial condition. However, you can pay for such damages with the insurance even though the amount is hefty as long as you have enough coverage.

  • Insurance against Personal Injuries

    Not every vehicle owner is lucky to get out of accidents without suffering from injuries. The motor insurance policy will pay for all the minor and major injuries that might occur due to accidents.

Types of Motor Insurance in India

 

Whether you are buying a private car, two-wheeler, or a commercial one, the types of motor insurance plans are broadly classified into two:

 

  • Comprehensive Insurance Policy

    With this policy, you can pay for damage to your vehicle as well as others, including motorbikes, private cars, scooters, and commercial vehicles.


  • Third-party Insurance Policy

    The third-party motor insurance policy is liability coverage that is uniformly applicable to all vehicles. As per the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, third party car insurance and third party insurance for bike are compulsory for vehicles plying on Indian roads. Failure to comply with this rule would result in an individual to paying hefty fines according to the Motor Amendments Act, 2019.


  • Pay As You Go

    It is a new type of policy that allows the policyholders to pay by calculating the kilometres driven.

With these two motor insurance policies in consideration, the types of vehicle insurance are categorised as below.

 

  • Car Insurance

    Car Insurance

    The ideal choice to secure your private four-wheeler is getting car insurance. It is a contract that is drawn between the vehicle owner and the insurance company that covers both comprehensive policy and third-party liability. With this plan, you will get benefits like:

    • Cashless claims
    • Personal accident cover
    • Loss/damage protection
    • Unlimited liability for third-party injuries and death claims
  • Two Wheeler Insurance

    Two Wheeler Insurance

    As the name suggests, two wheeler insurance or bike insurance is meant for scooters, bikes and other two wheelers. It is a type of vehicle insurance that will ensure a safe ride as two-wheelers have slightly more risks of personal injuries. The benefits included in the plan are:

    • Comprehensive coverage
    • 2/3 years of own damage motor insurance
    • No claim bonus protection
    • Inflation protection
  • Commercial Vehicle Insurance

    Commercial Vehicle Insurance

    The risks of damage to commercial vehicles are more than private vehicles. Hence, commercial vehicle insurance allows drivers to reduce the losses that incur in unfortunate events. It involves vehicles like tractors, cranes, taxies, goods carrying vehicles, passenger-carrying vehicles, etc. The benefits will include:

    • Unlimited liability coverage for injury and death claims
    • Personal accident cover
    • Offers loss and damage protection
    • Indemnity for other’s property

    You can purchase a suitable vehicle insurance policy that protects all kinds of vehicles in worst-case scenarios. Be it fire, burglary, vandalism, earthquake, flood, storms, or accidents; you can feel secure under all circumstances.

Inclusions Under Our Motor Insurance Plans

Before buying a vehicle insurance policy, you must explore the extent of the coverage that comes with the plans. Here is a list of inclusions in the comprehensive policy offered by Bajaj Allianz. Remember that a Comprehensive Vehicle Insurance Policy covers Third-party liability too.

  • Third-Party Coverage :  The third-party coverage will pay for the damage inflicted by a person on other people and their property in the case to fulfil your obligations

  • Personal Accident Cover :  It will allow a driver or vehicle owner to compensate the third-party for a sum of INR 15 lakhs in case of permanent disability or death of a person.

  • Damage Due To Natural Calamities :The inhumane activities like burglary, riots, strikes, malicious acts, theft, vandalism, and similar activities are also covered in your vehicle insurance policy.
    Both third-party liability and comprehensive coverage is a legal requirement for all vehicle owners and drivers that involve both private cars, two-wheelers, and commercial vehicles. If you fail to oblige, you might face additional charges. So, make sure that you opt for the policy that provides sufficient coverage to keep you safe physically, mentally, and financially.
    In order to peruse the detailed list of inclusions & exclusions of your desired plan, refer to the motor insurance policy wordings.

Updated Vehicle Insurance Covers After IRDAI’s Rule

 

IRDAI emphasised making vehicle insurance more affordable for vehicle owners. Hence, the rules and regulations around the motor insurance policies are updated.

 

Insurance Covers IRDAI 2018 Regulation IRDAI 2020 Regulation
Third Party Only Cover 3-year TP Insurance for Cars & 5-year TP Cover Retained
Third Party + Comprehensive Cover 3-year and 5-year TP + Comprehensive Cover Updated to 3-year and 5-year TP + 1-year Comprehensive Cover
Standalone Comprehensive Cover (TP Cover mandatory) 3-year and 5-year Comprehensive Cover 1-year Comprehensive OD Cover

 

Here are the changes that most significantly impact the policyholders:

  • The Sum Insured for private cars up to three years will be based on road tax/registration, on-road vehicle price, and manufacturer accessories.
  • The long-term policy expiry date and the third-party expiry date won’t match if you buy the standalone OD policy on different dates.
  • Instead of basing the premiums on the IDV of the vehicle, geographical zone, car make, model, engine capacity, or others, it will depend on the individual’s driving habits.
  • IRDAI has standardised the No Claim Bonus grid for all vehicle insurance policies with a renewal range of 20-50%.
  • The Registration Certificate of vehicles on which theft and total loss/constructive total loss claims are made will be cancelled, and the documents will be surrendered.
  • The compulsory deductibles are now standard and the waiver on these deductibles are also lifted for less ambiguity.
  • A standard grid is proposed to calculate the depreciation value of the vehicle that will be settled during claim settlement.
  • The passengers in the motor vehicles shall receive Rs. 25,000 medical expense cover in case of accidents, and it lies under the basic policy.
  • A Named Driver Policy is adopted for private cars and two-wheelers to incorporate the driver’s details in the policy schedule.
  • Electric Vehicles insurance premiums will get a 15% discount. The liberty to withdraw the long-term cover from one company and switch to another is a customer-friendly move. With so many positive changes, vehicle insurance in India is certainly easy to afford.

 

Motor Insurance Policy Exclusions

 

 

Knowing the exclusions will ensure that you won’t face any challenges during claims:

  • Depreciation of the vehicle is not covered under the motor insurance policy as normal wear & tear, and ageing of the components is a consequential loss.
  • Driving under the influence of prohibited substances will make you ineligible for claims. We promote safe driving under all circumstances.
  • An invalid license will also nullify your insurance protection as it is illegal to drive without a valid license.
  • Unfavourable risks like war, mutiny, or nuclear attacks are chaotic and uncontrollable, which results in exclusion from an insurance policy.

Parameters That Affect Vehicle Insurance Premium

 

Here are the parameters that will impact the vehicle insurance premiums on both the short-term and long haul.

  • Model/Make/Variant: The vehicle’s elemental composition, its type, cubic capacity of the engine, etc., have a direct effect on the motor insurance premium.

  • Age & Engine Type : Age is related to depreciation value and insured declared value that decreases the vehicle’s value over time. The engine type, i.e., petrol or diesel, affects the IDV, increasing the premium

  • Demographics:Operating a car in the metro area is expensive due to the increased risk of accidents.

  • Cover:Getting comprehensive coverage will cost you more than standalone third-party liability coverage, which leaves you underinsured

  • Add-Ons:Adding security features and cover like zero depreciation, passenger cover, etc., will increase the premium amount.

  • No Claim Bonus:You get a discount on policy premiums if you don’t raise a claim in the previous policy period.

  • Deductibles:You get a choice to opt for the voluntary deductible to minimise the motor insurance premiums by contributing a predetermined amount

  • Anti-Theft Features:Installation of anti-theft devices certified by ARAI will help you fetch better discounts on motor insurance premiums

  • Seller:To reduce the motor insurance premiums, buy a policy from the seller directly instead of going to an agent

  • Digital Insurance:Digital-first plan comes with a variety of features at a lower price than the market for new purchase as well as renewal of the policy

How to Use a Vehicle Insurance Calculator?

 

 

Most of the companies use a standard motor insurance calculator to determine the amount of premiums for the chosen coverage. Though different companies follow distinct criteria, we’ve kept the calculations straightforward and easy to understand. You can use our online calculator by providing us with some necessary information about your needs.

For a new car, you need to provide us with the following information to calculate the motor insurance premiums.

  • Name of the vehicle manufacturer
  • Car model
  • Registration state of the car
  • Manufacture year
  • Car Owner details

For a used car, the vehicle insurance calculator needs slightly variable information given below:

  • Type of car and fuel used
  • Previous car motor insurance plan details
  • Registration Number
  • Change of Ownership documents (if applicable)
  • History of Claims

With these details, we can calculate the best value of premiums for the insurance coverage you wish to buy.

Things to Consider While Buying Vehicle Insurance

During the purchase, you need to account for the following factors to get the best rates on comprehensive coverage.

  • ✓   Coverage : Explore whether you need comprehensive coverage or third-party liability coverage on an urgent basis. In our opinion, it is always better to go with comprehensive vehicle insurance online.

  • ✓   Add-Ons : Learn about the add-on features provided by the company and pick the additional coverage that is appropriate in your specific case.

  • ✓   Personal Accident Cover : Always account for whether the policy you are buying will cover you in case of personal accidents or not.

  • ✓   Claim Procedure : Go through the claim process to figure out how complex the task can be if, at some point, you need to file a claim.

  • ✓   Garages : All motor insurance providers have a network of garages where vehicle service and repairs are more affordable than local garages. You must consider them as the vehicle will need servicing more frequently as you travel.

  • ✓   Zero Depreciation Cover :  A car’s value becomes almost half the moment it steps out of the showroom. To maintain the monetary value of the vehicle, you must opt for zero depreciation cover to combat the loss that will result after depreciation.

  • ✓   NCB : Find out whether the motor insurance providers offer a good No Claim Bonus and other benefits when you need to renew the policy after expiration. With each year that you spend without claiming the insurance, the discount for the next year’s plan progressively increases.

  • ✓   IDV : Only reliable insurers will offer you the best market value of the vehicle after deducting the depreciation amount. With this, you can get compensation called Sum Insured in case of theft or total destruction of your vehicle.

  • ✓   Policy Document : Never sign any documents without reading and reviewing the policy. There are many clauses in the document that might confuse you. So, always go through the document carefully and only then finalise the purchase.

  • ✓   Premiums : Ask for detailed specifications for how the company calculates the premiums for your motor insurance online. Be aware of the factors that play a role and clear your doubts without hesitation

The offline process is almost the same, except that you have to provide a physical copy of the documents. Schedule your visit to the nearest branch and buy the policy with suitable coverage by paying through cheque, debit card, or demand draft.

Why is Motor Insurance Mandatory in India?

 

It is the Motor Vehicle Act that specifies the rules and regulations regarding driving in India. We know that owning motor vehicle insurance is mandatory for all drivers and vehicle owners, considering the number of accidents that take place annually in the country.

What Motor Vehicle Act specifies?

As per the Motor Vehicle Act, all vehicles that operate in public space must acquire sufficient motor vehicle coverage without any exception. The basic motor insurance policy must cover the minimum amount of third-party liability coverage to provide for other people involved in accidents or mishaps.

The primary reason to buy a motor vehicle insurance policy is to eliminate the expense that occurs after accidents. And don’t forget, India is a country where the population is rising unruly. As a result, the number of vehicles is also on the rise. To protect against the threats that arise on the road, vehicle insurance is the best solution.

After the amendment in 1988, it is essential to carry various provisions like driver’s license, vehicle registration document, permits, liability coverage, insurance cover, etc., on the road. And after recent changes, failure to fulfil these obligations will lead to fines and penalties worth INR 500 to 25,000 with additional penalties that involve ceasing your documents.

 

Steps to Claim Vehicle Insurance Policy

 

Filing for a vehicle insurance claim isn’t as complicated as you think, only if you choose the right insurance provider. Before you finally decide to claim the insurance, here are some prerequisites that you must take care of.

 

  • ✓   Contact your insurer as soon as you meet with an accident and file an FIR.
  • ✓   Get assistance in towing the vehicle to the nearest garage only after securing all the evidence of the accident scene.
  • ✓   The network garage will provide you with a quote regarding the estimated cost of repair.
  • ✓   You will need that bill to present it to the insurance providers.
  • ✓   The insurer will verify the documents and evaluate their authenticity, and only then the claim process can begin.
  • ✓   Know that the deductibles and depreciation value can’t be claimed. Only the remaining amount will be paid to you as compensation.
  • ✓   After accounting for all this, the process you will have to follow goes like this.
  • Step 1: Register for Claim

    Log in to our website or call our toll-free number to register for a claim. The delay you make in making a claim and contacting us, there is a higher chance that the evidence you can use will get tempered.

  • Step 2: Submit Mandatory Documents

    We will need you to submit the following documents to ensure that the motor insurance claim process goes without a hitch.

    • ✓   Chassis and Engine Number
    • ✓   Date and time of the accident
    • ✓   Location and description of the event
    • ✓   Car inspection address
    • ✓   Kilometre readings
    • ✓   Police Complaint (in case of accidents and theft)
  • Step 3: Claim Settlement

    The moment you submit the documents, we will initiate the process and dispatch the money after verification directly to the receiving party.

 

Importance of Motor Insurance Renewal

 

You might not believe it, but according to a survey, 60% of vehicles on roads in India are operating without valid insurance. And that’s because people don’t understand the importance of motor insurance renewal. Motor insurance India is a legal requirement for your safety as well as for others. The risks associated with motor vehicles are far greater than we can fathom. Hence, we ask you to renew your insurance policies before expiration.

  • No Rejection of Car Insurance Claims:

    Renewing your policy the day before expiration will ensure that you don’t face any challenges during the claim process. In case any major accident takes place after policy lapse, you won’t have any backup to pay for repairs or deal with medical expenses.

  • Keep Insurance Premiums Moderate:

    Your application for acquiring vehicle insurance can be rejected if the policy isn’t renewed under a specific period. And even if the application is accepted, you will have to pay a hefty premium. All of this can be avoided by renewing the insurance on-time.

  • Save with No Claim Bonus:

    The No Claim Bonus is offered only to policyholders who take their insurance plans seriously. If you let the policy expire, the discount that is highly beneficial for vehicle owners will nullify, and you will have to pay big size insurance premiums.

  • Easy Inspection for Renewal:

    Companies follow a standard procedure for vehicle insurance renewal, which involves inspection to assess your vehicle condition. With the assessment, you can determine how much insurance coverage you need to buy.

  • Quick & Hassle-Free Renewal:

    Not renewing the policy results in rejection from insurers. You must get vehicle insurance renewal on time to prevent the hassle of looking for a new insurance provider. And trust us, searching for a provider that fits your budget after a lapse is very challenging.

MOTOR INSURANCE FAQS

 

 

 

   How to apply for motor insurance?

Applying for motor insurance with Bajaj Allianz takes within minutes by using our online portal. You can fill the form through our website or using the app and submit the necessary documents to complete the application. The documents will be verified, and you will be able to choose a plan that suits your budget and finalize the vehicle insurance policy as quickly as possible. 

   What is the period for which a Motor policy is issued?

In general, a motor insurance policy is valid for one year. After that, the vehicle owner must renew the policy before the due date without any lapse; otherwise, it will affect the NCB discounts and the premium rates. 

   When do we require a proposal form from the customer?

The Proposal Form is required in the situations of:

●     New business

●     Other company renewal

●     For transfer of interest

●     To convert the Liability Only Cover to a full package policy

●     Change/Substitution of the vehicle

●     Modification or improvement of the vehicle during current policy or during the renewal 

   What is a Cover Note?

Cover Note is a very common phrase for insurance providers that describe the temporary documentation of the vehicle insurance. It serves as proof that you have valid insurance in advance before you get the final document. It includes the following details such as name, address, vehicle registration, the purpose of the vehicle, level of cover, policy number, expiry date, and special conditions. 

   What is meant by IDV?

IDV stands for Insurance Declared Value, which is the maximum claim the insurer pays for your vehicle when it gets damaged or stolen

   When do pre-acceptance inspections have to be carried out?

The pre-inspection of the vehicle is carried out in the following situations:

●     Break-in insurance

●     Conversion of TP Cover to OD cover

●     Covering Imported Vehicles

●     Fresh Payment arrival after bounced cheque

●     When an authorized person from the underwriting department comes for vehicle inspection 

   Will my motor insurance policy be transferred when I buy a new vehicle?

No, if you buy a new vehicle, you will have to acquire insurance for both of them separately. As per the rules, you cannot have the main insurance policy for two vehicles at once. However, with Bajaj Allianz, there is a provision to the personal accident cover for two vehicles under one policy. 

   When is an endorsement required?

The endorsement is the document that serves as evidence to change a policy. It incorporates the changes in the policy terms if the customer asks for any alterations, and it’s done by approaching the Motor Insurance Company at the time of issuance. 

   What are the documents required for renewing the policy?

If you wish to renew the policy, you need to submit the following documents:

●     Premium Cheque

●     Renewal Reply Form

●     Changes needed by the customer in the new policy

●     Old Policy Details

●     Vehicle Registration Number

●     Payment Details

●     Proof of Identity

●     Proof of Address and Vehicle Ownership 

   What is the Employees Compensation Act? How does it affect TP insurance claims?

The Employees Compensation Act states that all workmen and their families will get paid in case an industrial accident or occupational-related disease results in an employee’s disablement or sudden death. 

When such an unfortunate event appears where you hurt someone physically, and it results in death, the third-party insurance coverage pays for the loss of the other party to unlimited liability as compensation, which is usually decided by a court law. 

   How does Judiciary play a role in adjudication of third-party motor insurance claims?

After the enactment of the Motor Vehicle Insurance Act, the convoluted insurance cases and the increasing incidence of fraud can be handled with better efficiency by the judiciary. Judiciary will help clear the backlog while serving natural justice.
