Comprehensive Insurance


Driving gives a feeling of liberation. At the same time, it is a big responsibility as you are in control of the vehicle that may cause harm or damage to others or their property. Besides, it is prudent to be aware of the other vehicles around them. Moreover, it is important to drive safely and responsibly. 

In India, third-party insurance is a legal mandate. Adversity doesn’t come with prior notice. If you are a vehicle owner ensure to opt for a suitable comprehensive insurance policy. Let us delve into understanding comprehensive motor vehicle insurance.



In case of an accident having the insurance policy provides financial assistance to the insured in case of accidental damage to the vehicle. A cover will also be provided to the third party for any property damage or any bodily injury.

Having comprehensive motor insurance in place gives the assurance of security for not only the own vehicle damage but the liability of a third party involved in a mishap. The insurer can easily settle the claim in the case of demise as compensation. In case of death because of an accident, the nominee is going to be indemnified by Motor Accidents Case Tribunal (MACT).



In India, third-party insurance is a mandate but having full comprehensive insurance is not. It depends upon the vehicle owner to opt for a plan as per the requirement. Ideally, it is recommended to choose suitable insurance coverage and safeguard yourself financially.

While driving on roads, there are chances that the vehicle may meet with an accident. At times, the extent of damage could be massive. The repairing costs for the incurred damages sometimes might not be that pocket friendly and may take a toll on the finances. Henceforth, going ahead with comprehensive motor insurance should not be neglected
