    Third party liability insurance covers the damages caused by the insured, to an unrelated third party. In case of accidents, a third party liability insurance plan, covers all the damages that the insured driver has caused to the third party, their motor vehicle and its accessories. It also covers bodily injuries to the third party. The policy however does not cover bodily injury to the insured.
  • Comprehensive Motor Insurance Plan:
    This motor insurance plan provides coverage for all the damages caused to the third party (bodily injury or property damage), as well as suffered by the insured to the vehicle. The damages caused may be due to human acts (while driving) or a natural calamity. It covers the damages to the insured’s motor vehicle, third-party legal liability, theft and personal accident coverage.
