Insurance is a hedge against the occurrence of unforeseen incidents. Insurance products help you in not only mitigating risks but also helps you by providing a financial cushion against adverse financial burdens suffered.
Accidents… illness… fire… financial securities are the things you’d like to worry about any time. General Insurance provides you the much-needed protection against such unforeseen events. Unlike Life Insurance, General Insurance is not meant to offer returns but is a protection against contingencies. Under certain Acts of Parliament, some types of insurance like Motor Insurance and Public Liability Insurance have been made compulsory.
It is very important to have adequate amount of coverage for each insurance policy. For any asset or property insurance, the value of the asset based on market value or reinstatement value should be taken into consideration before deciding Sum Insured. If the Sum Insured is not adequate, the percentage representing the uncovered portion of the asset is to be borne by the insured.
Almost everything that has a financial value in your life and has a probability of getting lost, stolen or damaged can be covered through insurance. Property (both movable and immovable), vehicle, cash, household goods, health, dishonesty and also your liability towards others can be covered.
Accidents and mishaps can occur anytime and anywhere. It is important to identify the risks faced and insure oneself against these at the earliest.

It is the consideration of material fact to assess the risk and to take the decision whether to accept the risk for insurance contract and if so at what rate of premium.
It is an arrangement by which insurance companies spread their risk with other underwriters or reinsurance companies.
The amount, which the insured has to bear in all cases and this amount, is first deducted from the total assessed payable claims amount before determining the insurance company’s liability.
