A third-party motor insurance is mandatory in India. A large number of people already own vehicles and every day, many more motor vehicles are being purchased. But just owning an insurance policy is not enough. Policyholders may gain the benefit of an insurance policy only if they inform about the claim to the insurance company on time.
Importance of informing about the claim on time
The car insurance claim should be filed in advance in order to gain the benefit of cashless repair across the wide network of garages . In case the garage does not fall in the network of the insurance company, you may file a reimbursement claim. In addition, the sooner you make a claim, the sooner the vehicle will be repaired, and you will be able to receive a quick reimbursement of the amount.
