But still, there is a considerable section of people who haven't opted for it yet. There are many consequences to it, and moreover, the safety of your vehicle and your life is at risk. It's better to have insurance as soon as possible after buying a two-wheeler and if you have an existing policy, must make sure that you renew it on time so that it does not lapse, and you are not stranded without any insurance cover. Here are a few consequences that you might have to face if your policy expires or you have not opted for any policy in the first place: - Penalties: Any Indian citizen, if caught driving a two-wheeler without third-party insurance, can be penalized up to Rs.1000 or imprisonment of 3 months under the motor vehicle act. No claim bonus: This is a benefit provided by the insurance company to their policyholders if no claim for the policy was made. If your two-wheeler insurance plan has expired due to non-payment of premium, this will result in all your accrued benefits being forfeited. Also, you lose the chance to transfer the accrued benefits to your new vehicle. Liabilities: In the absence of two-wheeler insurance, you shall be liable to pay the compensation amount to the victim of an accident caused by your vehicle, and the cost of repair of the vehicle will also have to be borne from your pocket. You can also be prosecuted by the authorities for two reasons – negligent driving and lapsed insurance policy. This will not only lead to significant expenses on your part but can also have a significant impact on the lives of your family members if you are held responsible for an accident. Time consumption: If you have a two-wheeler insurance policy, and it lapses, then it’s a big deal. You will have to undertake the whole process again as if you are buying a new policy for a vehicle. It will be a hectic process to fill the fresh proposal of insurance, and even a whole new inspection will be conducted for your vehicle.
