Third Party Coverage
The third party or liability only coverage (TP) offers financial protection against the third party person/ property damages. It also offers personal accident cover to the owner-driver. This cover is compulsory as per the Motor Vehicles Act (1988).
The quote that you get for TP cover is the sum of its components which include:
The basic premium
The amount of personal accident cover
The service tax
The basic premium depends on the cubic capacity. It is in the range of Rs. 2000 to Rs. 7000 as determined by the Motor Vehicle Act (1988). For personal accident owner-driver cover, you pay a fixed amount of Rs. 100 and a service tax as decided by the Government of India. As per budget 2016, this tax is 15%.
The other type is comprehensive coverage or package policy. It offers financial protection against car damages after an accident along with the TP cover.
