In India insurance is taken very lightly and motor insurance is taken even more lightly. A report by General Insurance Council of India states that about 2/3rdof the vehicles in India don’t even have a third party motor insurance.
The main reason for this being lack of understanding, the process is tedious and even high fee being involved in form of insurance premium. This results in an additional financial burden.
As per the Motor Vehicle Act, it is compulsory for every motor owner to have an insurance policy to cover death, injury and other damages to property.
With COCO by DHFL General Insurance this can turn out to be easy and more rewarding in form of savings as one can choose from what is required, so you pay only for what you opt for.
