Types of Car Insurance Plans

This type of insurance compensates only third-party injuries and their property damages. As per The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, Third Party Liability Coverage is mandatory for all vehicles driven on public roads in India.

You should opt for this type of insurance if you want financial protection from losses caused due to accidents, theft and natural disasters.
