Motor Insurance

Think of a situation where you have bought a new car using all your savings and
taken it for a drive. Out of nowhere, a dog comes in your way and to avoid
hitting it, you swerve sharply, go over the divider and hit another car and injure

own car, public property and another car as also injury to another person.
In this scenario, if you do not have a car insurance, you may end up paying far

Apart from an accident, the car can also be stolen, damaged by an accident or
destroyed by fire and you would suffer financially.
Motor insurance must be taken by a vehicle owner whose vehicle is registered in
her / his name with the Regional Transport Authority in India.
