General Insurance

General Insurance is also termed as non-life insurance. It helps you to protect yourself and the things you value the most for instance your home, car, and other valuable things. It also safeguards you from the financial impact from minor to the major scenarios- fire, flood, storm, earthquake, travel mishaps. You can choose the types of risks you want to cover with the right kind of general Insurance policies.


Why is General Insurance Important?

Imagine you’re driving to the office in your car and suddenly, a taxi hits you from behind. Your car has a dent and the rear window is shattered too. Now you need about Rs. 2000/- for the dent and Rs.5000/- for the rear glass.

n this case, a car insurance policy plays well. You can get the amount reimbursed under the insurance policy. Your car is the asset here in which you have a financial interest. It is also important to remember that, an insurance policy will pay only as per its predefined conditions.
