How does NCB work in case I buy a second-hand bike? Will I get No-Claim Bonus?

As a new owner it’s your obligation to get the existing two-wheeler insurance transferred in your name within the specified period from the date of transfer of RC. If you fail to do so and if you require raising a claim, the same will not be honored. For a favorable claim, the title on the RC of the two-wheeler and the insurance documents has to match. Also, please understand that the current owner can carry forward his existing No Claim Bonus (NCB) with him. He can use it to seek the premium discount if he purchases a new bike in future. Likewise, as a new owner, you will have to earn this bonus with each claim-free year. You can win a maximum of 50% discount on your own-damage premium with NCB.

Is an online policy valid?
