    Overview

    Benefits of United India Car Insurance

    United India Insurance Co. Ltd., formed in 1938 and nationalised in 1972, is one of India’s oldest insurance companies. It has an extensive reach with 1,340 offices servicing clients in urban, semi-urban and rural areas. The company also boasts one of the most diversified product portfolios with solutions that provide coverage for assets ranging from livestock to satellites. The following kinds of insurance are offered to customers: Fire, Health, Motor, Marine, Industrial, Liability, Credit and Micro Insurance.

    Who Needs Car Insurance?

    It is required by all those who intend to drive in the country. As mandated by law, all vehicles plying on Indian roads have to have third-party insurance. Own-damage policies are optional but by availing a comprehensive policy one can ensure all-round protection. It is also more economical to have an all-in-one package than having separate indemnity contracts.

    What is private car insurance?

    It is a form of personal insurance, usually included in the product portfolio of general insurance companies that aims to safeguard the financial interests of motorists with insurable interest in automobiles used for private purposes. Subject to provisions, passengers and paid employees are also included in the scope of the contract. Cars, being an expensive asset, can be the subject of situations that give rise to unpredictable financial setbacks.

    United India’s Motor Package

    The company offers ‘third-party liability only’ covers as well as comprehensive packages. It is always advisable to opt for comprehensive packages since it is impossible to tell what kind of events can lead to losses. The nature of hazards can be varied and financial fallouts can prove to be expensive not to mention the inconvenience that one has to bear in the absence of a necessary vehicle.

    What does it cover?

    A comprehensive policy that takes care of the financial needs of the proposer as well as third-parties in the event of an accident involving the insured vehicle.

    1. Own-Damage:
      • While many insurers limit the scope of coverage, United India extends it's protection to a wide range of situations that cause impairment to the owner-driver’s life/property. Policyholders are entitled to make claims for losses incurred due to:
        • External causes, deliberate or intentional.
        • Larceny - this includes loss or damages to accessories.
        • Fire, environmental disasters e.g. landslides, floods etc.
        • Transit mishaps (whether through road, rail, waterways etc.)
        • Terrorism, public disturbances.
      • If the accident leaves the car in need of repairs, cover (at marginal, additional costs and within specified limits) extends to:
        • Transporting the automobile to the nearest repair centre.
        • Repairs required to be done immediately.
    2. Third-party Legal Responsibility:
    3. As awarded by the court to the third party involved, to compensate for:

      • Death.
      • Physical injury/disability.
      • Property destruction.
    4. Personal Accident Cover for owner-driver:
    5. Compensation payable relates to the type of loss:

      • 100% in the event of death, loss of two limbs, loss of vision in both eyes, loss of one limb and vision in one eye and Permanent Total Dismemberment (PTL).
      • 50% in the event of loss of only one limb or loss of vision in only one eye.
    6. Additional Covers:
      • Available on payment of extra premium.
      • The following can be included in the scope of the contract:
      • Usage in the following geographic locations (outside the regular boundaries) - Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Maldives @ Rs.500 per car.
      • Personal accident covers - for employees and unnamed occupants of the car during the time of the accident.
      • Imported or non-factory fitted electrical and electronic accessories - @4% on cost of the equipment.
      • Bi-fuel kits - upon declaration; @4% on cost of the CNG-LPG kit.
      • Fuel tanks made of fiberglass - @ Rs.50 above own-damage premium.

    What is not covered?

    The following exclusions are incorporated in the contract:

    • Contractual obligations.
    • War, nuclear hazards.
    • Driving while intoxicated by liquor or drugs.
    • Loss due to natural usage, devaluation with age, general depreciation.
    • Driving beyond permissible boundaries (geographically).
    • Usage beyond permissible limits.
    • Driving without a valid license.

    What is the sum assured?

    The sum assured/insured is referred to as the IDV of the car.

    IDV stands for Insured’s Declared Value and is calculated as the producer’s selling price of the automobile (of the same type, make, model, specifications) less the depreciation (applicable as per the below-mentioned table). The IDV, considered to be the market value, reduces with every passing year since the depreciation increases as the motor vehicle ages.

    (depreciation indicated against automobile age)

    • 5% - up to 6 months
    • 15% - between 6 months and 1 year
    • 20% - between 1 and 2 years
    • 30% - between 2 and 3 years
    • 40% - between 3 and 4 years
    • 50% - between 4 and 5 years
    • As decided by the insurer and insured - Above 5 years (and models no longer manufactured).

    The above schedule is used for Total Loss (TL) or Constructive Total Loss (CTL). CTL is considered when total cost of damages is greater than 75% of IDV.

    For third-party liability the cover is set as per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

    On what basis are premiums calculated?

    • For own-damage: Set on the basis of IDV or sum insured.
    • For third-party liability: Set as per tariffs under the Motor Vehicles Act,1988.

    What are the No-Claim Benefits?

    • No-Claim Benefits that the proposer is entitled to upon renewal are as follows:
      • 20% - 1 year.
      • 25% - 2 years.
      • 35% - 3 years.
      • 45% - 4 years.
      • 50% - 5 years.

      The years mentioned here relate to the consecutive, claim-free years, preceding renewal. The percentage of bonus mentioned relates to Own-damage premium.

    • Renewal should be executed within 90 days of policy expiry.

    What are the other discounts offered?

    In addition to no-claim bonuses, the proposer can avail the following discounts for:

    • Claim Insurance for Your Damaged Car Now – United Car Insurance

      Was your motor vehicle totally inundated in the Chennai floods? Though it will be least of your worries in the current situation, it would be a prudent step to notify your insurance carrier or the authorized workshop, as any effort to kick-start or rev up your vehicle can end up in you losing your entire claim as per the Comprehensive Automobile Insurance Policy.

      Insurance providers like United Car Insurance have been warning people exactly the same. As per the rules, insurance carriers must be alerted about automobiles being water-logged and then they would send an expert to gauge the loss and damage. But trying to start the engine could lead to further problems, which will not be compensated by the insurer and will also impact the depreciation value. To date, United India Insurance has been sent 250 claims under the Comprehensive Insurance Policy for Motor Vehicles. This figure is likely to shoot up even more in the coming weeks.

    • ‘Holidays Equal Bigger Claims’: United India Car Insurance

      While holidays, festivals and long weekends are eagerly looked forward to by common city-dwellers, these stints aren’t very welcome where motor insurance companies are concerned. United India Car Insurance maintains that irresponsible and drunken driving creep up heavily through these ‘relaxed’ times and the inevitable auto crashes and damages do follow. Thus, these durations equate to a steep increment in claims and bigger settlement values. The company also observes that certain geographical locations do also contribute to this trend- the Delhi to Shimla highway, the Mumbai- Pune corridor are prime examples that spawn a good flow of motor insurance claims. The United India Car Insurance is one of the many insurers who hope that the exhibition of such unfriendly statistics will implore drivers to be more responsible, while on the road, through a holiday break.

Since the showroom had the dealership tie up with United India Insurance, I took it with them this year and do find the insurance to be beneficial based on its coverage. They provide the ex-showroom price coverage excluding the accessories which makes it a zero depreciation policy. I have to just pay processing fee at the time of claim.
