Is it mandatory to insure my Skoda Rapid in India?
In India, as per the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, it is mandatory that every vehicle being driven on the road be insured. This rule applies to your Car too. Broadly, car insurance is divided into two categories i.e. third-party car insurance and comprehensive car insurance. However, you’ll be surprised to know [if you don’t know already] that only the third-party liability insurance is mandatory by law. Buying a comprehensive car insurance policy is a matter of choice.
How will the engine’s CC affect my Skoda Rapid’s car insurance premium?
The total volume of all the cylinders in a car’s engine added together is expressed in cubic centimetres(cc) or, more frequently in litres. So, an engine with a capacity of 1499cc will be referred to as a 1.5litre unit. The cubic capacity of your car is mentioned in your car registration certificate (RC).The premium calculation is done as per below:
• Cars not exceeding 1000 cc
• Cars exceeding 1000 cc but not exceeding 1500cc
• Cars exceeding 1500cc
Incidentally, the cubic capacity of the car also has a direct impact on the Third Party premium, too. So, the higher the cubic capacity of your car, the more is the premium.
